This tumbles the mixture and supposedly increases fuel efficiency and power. I have also heard it causes a lot of cracked heads which is why nobody does it. I have always wished I had a spare head lying around to try it with.
I feel like the cub is great on fuel economy and generally I run out of traction before I run out of power (with the exception of the mower deck). If it is not powerful enough I usually need more tractor anyway and get a bigger machine.
