Craftsman Rear

Difference in 23hp vs. 27hp in lawn mower (Husqvarna)?

I am looking at looking at buying a garden tractor. A Husqvarna 2354GXLS (23hp 54" Deck) vs. 2754GLS (27hp 54" Deck) vs. Craftsman’s GT5000 (26hp 54" deck)

I am not pulling or plowing anything just cutting over 2 acres with a slope (some parts about 45% sloped).

One tractor is 23 hp with 24"x12" rear wheels
One is 27 hp with 23"x10" rear wheels.
The Craftsman is 26"hp with 23"x10" rear wheels but goes 7.5 mph

They all have the hydrostatic transmission and 54" deck.

I have heard that Craftsman’s and Husqvarna are made by the same company, not sure if that is true.

Questions:

Is there a big difference between 23hp and 27hp (horse power)? I currently have a 17.5 hp that is not good on the slopes.

Since they are very similar, should I be looking a hp, speed, tire size, or brand?

Thanks for the replys.

You WILL notice that HP difference on slopes. Also the bigger the rear tires the better. I wouldn't consider its speed whatsoever. Even with big fancy lawn mowers you have to go pretty slow to get a good cut.
