I know your fed up with all these threads comparing equipment, but I need know how the new 6hp 4 cycle engines on the toro stack up with the old dependable 5.5 Suzuki. My dealer still has 2 of the Suzuki's left in stock and I cant make my decision. Has anyone used the Honda/kawasaki engines? any input is greatly appreciated.:D

How is the preformance. Are the 4 cycle more powerful? I dont mind changing the oil once a week if I have a better mower.

I think the kawa has more power and torque. Even though it is more maintenance I do not regret getting rid of my suzuki and getting the 6.5 kawa.

We have 2 Toro Proline 21's one with a 5.5hp Kawasaki and the other has a 5.5hp Suzuki. The Kawasaki has more torque in thick grass, such as Bermuda and Zyosia. There is less maintenance on the Suzuki and it has a larger fuel tank. We like the Kawasaki better, but wish it had a bigger fuel tank. ( Suzuki has 1 gal tank)

The biggest benefit to the Suzukis is the light weight...If your guys are cutting 15-20 small res. props a day w/Prolines the Kaw will wear them out quick... turning & pulling backwards & occasional lifting...have found better production w/Suzukis.
