compare these two for me. other then the 2mph speed difference, What is the difference between the freedom Z and the tiger cub? I really dont see any other difference. They both have the same engine options, same deck options, only the tiger cub goes 10mph and the freedom z goes 8mph. Also, Would you choose the 19hp kawasaki over the 26hp briggs ELS? I know briggs have a rep for not lasting as long, but most of you busy guys need a new mower by the time the warranty is up. Is the 19hp worth all that extra money when the 26hp can be so much more productive at full speeds or in taller grass. Basically, If you were starting out, needed a productive mower to last you through the first few "growing business years", and had a budget, would you spend the extra money on the kawasaki or the extra money on a bigger deck? exactly how bad of a rep do the briggs have compared to the kawasaki?
