i wouldnt spent that much for a kubota, they are nice, but you can get DIXIE CHOPPER xw-2400-60, it has a 24hp honda. i orderd mine with the XF wheel motors, which takes you from 11 mph to 13 mph +! i would stay away from the kohler engines (dont want to start ANY THING!) i have used the 25hp kohlers, nice engines, but the fuel ecconomy, and the lifter noise is enough to drive you crazy! i paid about $8000 for my dixie, plus tax and other accessories.
