Hi, my Lawn obsessed Husband is still tossing up between the Protea & the Swardman. He is leaning towards the Swardman, but is concerned about the Horsepower. The 18 inch Swardman spec's up with a 1.9 kw Kawasaki Engine & the Protea 17 inch is spec'd up with either a 4HP Briggs & Stratton or a 5HP Honda.
So my question is 1.9kw converts to only 2.5 HP which is only half the HP of the Protea with the Honda engine. Has the Swardman got enough HP for the thicker Buffalo & Kikuya Grasses?
Will it plough through 3 - 4 inch Buffalo Grass or will it struggle?
He's been unable to find the answer online. Is there anybody on this Forum, who could answer these questions for us please? Thanks in advance
