Where ever you got those numbers from is not a good way or even proper way to show power to weight ratio's
The proper way is to show the amount of weight per ONE hp.

On your first figure if you have 72hp and your unit weigh's in at 1596lbs. Your power to weight will be 22.16lbs for every one horse power.
While on your second figure it will be 23.43lbs for every one horse power.

This makes it much easier to understand and makes more sense.

I figured you had.
Many manufactures will put up those figures in that order cause it looks better to the unknowing eyes. But when you reverse it showing the weight per horse power instead of horse power per weight it give's the reader or potential customer a whole different view. Even though they are the same.

My friends 30 hp sxs has hualed 100's of tons of critters in Alberta and BC for 20 + years..

(Removed photo of 6x6 Bull Elk) in due respect too our friends privacy...

Its hard too spot critters with old eyes if your going too fast,,, perhaps theres benifits too slow...

If fast is a person's thing they make units for that range of folks,,, but a large segment of every day folks seem too do just fine in the slow lane...

We love slow...

So comfortable and relaxing they say...

Thanks for the heads up on the Onda sxs,,, they would fit the bill for our use at the farm and out West...

Cheers all
