    I know a guy that bought a new Lazer HP 48. He had the dealer put a 22 Kohler on it. He also has a 48 walk behing with a 20 Kohler on it. Lots of hp!
    Talked to a guy yesterday at the grass dump. He has a 36 walk behind with a 20.5 hp Robin on it!
    What do you guys have or have seen in the way of big hp on equipment?

    You can get a 25 HP on a 50" Chopper and get a 50 HP diesel on a 72" Chopper. That is a lot of HP for those size decks. I have a 26 HP diesel on a 60" which handles it nicely. Lots of HP is nice to have.
