I'm trying to piece together a 48" lesco belt drive. The mower has about 40 hours on it, except the engine was put on another mower. What size engine should I look for? 14, 15, 17? What is sufficient?

A 12.5 ohv Tecumseh will set you back $370.

A 16hp ohv Tecumseh is $530 if you want to spend the big
bucks.

I have a new 12.5 on a old 44" toro WB and it had no problem
cutting bluegrass this rainy season.

If you can't afford a "good" engine like a Kohler 16hp Magnum ($1000) these Tecumsehs are a good choice if you are on a budget.

I'd like a kawasaki 15hp v-twin but I can't find it anywhere but OEM. And it runs like $1000 through the lesco dealership. Any thoughts finding that else where?

i have a Lesco 48 hydro that has a 17 kaw and it is lacking power for my application. if u put a 17 kaw on a belt drive i would image that it would have all the power supply u need....i would stay away from the 14 and the 15.
