New poll on your favorite engine...

Recommended Posts

Kent
Well, with over 50% of the votes the front-end loader was clearly the winner in the "most wanted" attachment category.... I've started a new poll on your favorite engine, listing these choices: Briggs single Kohler single Briggs I/C flat twin Kohler KT twin Briggs Vanguard V-twin Kohler Command V-twin Onan CCKA/CCKB twin Couple of points: (1) Let's keep this to a "friendly poll" since I know there's some strong feelings on some of these... (2) I've had to "generalize" to get this down to only seven choices -- if one of these general categories is NOT your favorite (your favorite is a Honda, Kawasaki, Kohler Triad, or other engine) simply don't respond. I couldn't list ALL possible alternatives...

Kent, I didn't vote because ANY engine that runs is okay with me. I do notice that the Briggs & Kohler singles are running away with the vote. I guess the poor guys that only have foot pegs for safety need something noisy and vibrating to keep them alert. Every once in a while I doze off while using my smooth & quiet V-twin Sovereign with the running boards.

Dutch, Is that before or after it chokes on all the grass clippings it sucks into the air cleaner? BTW, I understand that a grader blade is only about 1/2 as much fun, if the running boards prevent you from standing on the edge of the blade for downforce as you grade.... Kent

Being a Cub Cadet fan as well, I was fooled by the poll. I guess whatever you drive is what you like. Cadets are Kohler dominated and Simplicity is Briggs. Having both that run well made it a toss up for me. Not many Onan owners...MadManX

Good one Kent..made my day! I like the single cast irons because they sound like an antique tractor should. I wouldnt necessarily want one on my home back up generator, or my girls go cart. But it works perfect for the tractor - heavy, and a broader power curve. Beamer
