Turf Tracer or Turf Tracer HP

I'm looking to purchase a new walk behind. I'm trying to decide between the Exmark Turf Tracer 23hp with a 52" deck or the Turf Tracer HP with 19hp and a 52" deck. Are the extra ponies worth the extra size, weight and money? Will I just end up burning more gas in the long run with the 23hp?

In tall wet grass you appreciate the 23hp. IMO 19hp is good for a 48" and under w/b.

If you want to buy a mower for fuel efficiency, get the 19hp. If you want a mower that you never have to worry about the power and going through thick, tall grass isn't a problem and hardly effects your productivity, get the 23hp.

Personally, I think the 19hp will be more then enough power. I think the 23hp will just burn to much fuel.

19/52 tthp will do the job, if you want mean machine that is fast and kick ass you have to get 52/23 or 52/27 or 52/28 Z, wb won't do the speed and productivity like the Z. I have 17/52 tthp which is very good on cut as I do have a few properties that require wb for its hills, other than that Z all the way. TTHP or TT won't see dust. As for wb section, I can't see any other wb that is better than eXmark, to be honest, you will love ecs handle.
