I guess I would have to say I perferr Kawasaki!

Better fuel economy, Not as loud.

The kohler 27 air seams to be a good engine. Ive heard several local fellas like it. Its the same as the 25 with a different carb.

My new mower has a 23 kaw on it. I had two scag wb. One had a kaw the other was a kohler. I always liked the kaw better. It has always been easier to start. It had been sitting for two months and it started on the first pull.
