    Any one using the New 29hp Kawasaki yet?
    Dealer quoted me $400 more over the 27hp liquid cooled.
    I will be his first Test Mule....:rolleyes:

    We offer both of these engines. The 29hp engine is very fuel effecient compared to the 27hp. Power is not that noticeable but the economy is! You will make up the diffrence in fuel savings!

    The booking orders are much larger for the new 29hp, and yes so far they have been extremely reliable!

    bladerunner is correct about the fuel economy when comparing the 27 to the 29. the extra power is not noticable, but the fuel economy is great. for ever 1 gallon my 29 burns, the 27 burns 2. its that noticable!

    not to mention, its just down right funny to hop on a mower and not see a choke. just fire it up and go, like you do in your vehicles.

    Thats DOUBLE the fuel economy,a DIESEL wont hardly do that.2 more ponies plus HALF the fuel consumption.Is there a downside??Sounds almost to good to be true.:)
