Default Kawasaki Engines

Starting to get a glimpse of next years models of some major power equipment manufactures and I see less machines with Kawasaki engines

We are looking at becoming a Kawasaki dealer, Briggs has been on the decline for us the last two years. Any thoughts or suggestions? How is Kawasaki to deal with as far as order fill, discounts and warranty payments? Also, we don't have the warm fuzzy feelings we once had with our Briggs distributor.

I don't have a warm fuzzy feeling with any distributor. It's all about the numbers!

Talked with my sales rep and he said their kawi engine supply was cut by 20%. He thought they might have struck a deal with deere as john deere was to have only kawi engines on their machines.

My understanding is that Kawasaki supports the manufacturers who use Kawasaki engines exclusively.
