My Ransome XT3100 (Delilah) is severely under-powered. By the time the 18hp opposed Kholer is busy dragging around the heavy carcass (no clue what it weighs, but I can't lift it), running the hydraulics, and pulling my fat butt; there isn't much left to spin the ginsu blades.
However, I just fell into a Craftsman GT5000 that needs work to the body, the 26hp v twin Kholer is perfect though.
SO this morning while I was out mowing in the dewy cool I got to thinking. What if I put the 26 hp in place of the 18? Any ideas? Thoughts? Complaints? Criticisms? Offers to help?
