    Are there any companies offering Z models with this engine combo? I know most companies offer one feature or another but not both.

    I live in Florida and heat takes its toll on equipment down here. Also carbs are old school, and can be finicky in different conditions, as when I mow in the winter and have trouble with cold starting.

    Walker offers a 31hp Liquid efi, It is faster than originals & comes with new bigger blower which helps keep the grass moving.

    Yes very much a pain in the ass during the winter. Takes like 10 minutes and usually results in flooding the engine, I also killed a battery.

    Unless you're just talking about gas engines, Exmark will sell you a liquid cooled, fuel injected Kubota diesel on a Lazer Z. I think they offer the KAW 29DFI liquid cooled engine too. :weightlifter:

    Walker also offers a 3-cylinder Kubota Diesel thats liquid cooled, but I don't think it's EFI. We have one and just absolutely love it.

    I think the Deere 797 has the Kawasaki LC DFI.

    Gotta walker 31 liquid cooled EFI and a toro 23 hp kubota diesel liquid cooled efi.....not problems mechanically yet but you gotta be careful when washing them because the ECU cant get pressure washing...gotta be careful when charging to no jump starts they say but they do save alot of fuel when compared to carbs.
