    I found a ~2006 TT 61" deck, 478 hours with a 23 HP Kawasaki Liquid Cooled FD671D engine for $4300.

    Is that enough engine? Is this a ok deal or great deal?

    The engine seems awfully small compared to current offerings. Engine specs say the displacement is 745cc which is the same displacement as the 27HP Kawi liquid cooled. The 23 has roughly 1.5 less foot pounds of torque coming in at 41.4 at 2400 RPM.

    What are your thoughts?

    The deal sounds pretty good if everything is in good shape.

    If you do not mulch, the 23 Kaw should be fine about 90% to 95% of the time (tall, wet grass would be the exception. Even then, you just slow down to get it done).

    If it has a 23hp it is not a 2006. If the s/n starts with a 8 or larger # or a letter it is an 2003 or newer. If it is that then you have 16cc pumps. Anything older is 10cc pumps and less desirable.

    Post the beginning s/n and ill get you a year.
