Liquid Cooled Engine

I'm in the market for another Lazer mower. Received a really good price on a liquid cooled,60", 27 Kaw. Never owned one.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of being liquid cooled? Also does the added weight affect anything? 2003 model.

I'll give my opinion. The liquid cooled Kawi is the best engine Kawi makes. It's a great engine with an excellant record of durability. Personally I don't have a problem with the weight because we just don't hear many complaints.

Added benefits of a liquid cooled engine are longer engine life, it's a quiter than an air cooled engine, less heat is transfered to the opperator and they tend to maintain a more consistant power band in both hot and cold temperatures. The disadvantages would include weight and cost but it's a pretty good trade off.
