    I have been delibrating between these two engines, I was leaning towards the L/C. But I spoke to a sells man today who said that he would purchase the 28EFT. Because the L/C has problems from the gear box to the shaft. He even has a L/C he uses at home and would recommend the 28EFI. He has had to replace the gear box in a couple of mowers. This dealership sells other mowers, but there main more that they push is hustler. Thanks for any input

    Hustler had problems with the gear box when the first came out. We have not had had any more problems after June. I believe the manufacture fix the seal problem that we were all having. The seal would move or leak than causing gear box failure.
    Power wise you will see very little different. I like Kawasaki engines so I lean that way. The big advantage is gas usage. The FI uses anywhere from 20% to 30% less fuel. So that is something to consider.
    You will be happy with either one. Use your gut instincts!!! :cool2:

    TheServicingdealer thanks for the input, with your knowledge and a little research. I bought the Super Z with Kohler 28 EFI today, very excited about getting it. Hopefully it will be in next week. Thanks again

    Thanks all, I am very excited like being a little kid and getting a new bike. Can't wait until it arrives. Will post pictures. PJ I sent you an email if you haven't recieved it just tell me. Last time I sent you an email it was sent to your spam mail. My decision was easy knowing hustler stands behind there products and there customer service is awesome.
