    If you want buy the mower and you want a cheaper price buy the Kaw
    If want a motor to last long time buy kohler

    We run 31 hp kawi's, but I think they are overkill. Both engines are probably adequate for most situations it comes across and I think our 31 hp mowers are overkill on almost every job. I've always heard kawasaki is better and i feel like most commercial mowers use kawi's in their heavier duty mowers. Still, that doesn't mean much.
