    Think I have decided on the Hustler 60 inch mower. I looked at the one with the Kawasaki 25hp but I think for an extra $100 I can get the 27 hp Kohler. Which is the best motor? Thanks

    Im a kawasaki guy, but for that much more for the money, sounds worth it to me.

    I asked the same thing before buying my 27hp kohler 72in. superZ.I demoed the 25 kawasaki 60in.superZ and the kohler was well worth the extra $100 and if your property will alow it I would pay the$300 more for the 72in.plenty of power.Only have had it two weeks so can't say any thing about reliabilaty. But in my case home owner of 13acres open mowing this thing is great.And if you call the factory I think you will find the people there are great also.Go for it.
