    In making a choice in motors I have the choice of 2:

    (1) Briggs 14hp I/C or (2) Kohler Courage 15hp

    Briggs is a single cylinder/ 3200RPM & Kohler single cylinder / 3300RPM

    Blade tip speed Briggs is listed (16,700) for both engines.

    Kohler is $150+ extra, wondering what folks would recommend. Pro's or Con's from the 2.
