It should be ok for you but if you have any intention's of cutting full time. I wouldn't purchase any thing less then a 17hp for a hydro.
... What, its not 2002 any more??? Ha, well I guess the more is 4 years old. Don't know where my head was. Thanks for the reply, this is what I was looking for.Originally posted by FrankenScagMachines
14hp is fine for 48 especially for personal use. Not to nit-pick, but how can a model year 2000 mower only be two years old? Wish you could do that trick on my eXmark, its a 99. This is 2004, a 00 is 4 years old. If the price is good get it. A friend had a 48 TTHP with a 14hp Kohler, two wheel sulky and a mulch kit. I used it and it did a great job. This was early fall so there were a few stray leaves (that disappeared with the Micro Mulch kit) but the growth was not real tall and thick. I think if you were discharging with single blades youd be fine even with a sulky. Awesome little mowers!
