    I was wondering if anyone had the specifications on the Suzuki 2 stroke engine and the Lawn Boy 6.5 Hp engine. I really wanted to know the cc's on both. Also, which of the two engines is better in the opinion of those who have used it. Finally, is the Suzuki a better choice over the Kawasaki for the Toro 21"?

    you should know that lb is better but suzuki is good as far as 2 cycles,, don't get a 4 cycle lb, get the suzuki toro, It will run strong, But not as strong as a lawnboy engine.

    Fair enough Viperman. But which is the better overall mower. My hunch is Toro. Is the Kawasaki better than Suzuki?

    If the kawi. is full pressure, Their the same , If you get a 2cycle you will have no oil changes, But smoke, 4cycle, oil changes, no smoke,

    How does the price differ withboth engines?

    If you use a synthetic 2 cycle oil you don't get any smoke.

    Joed Own both Toro Suzuki and a Kaw. both run good. One smokes one don't I'll stick with Toro, but the older Lawn Boys live on forever.
