Kohler. We use and service a whole lot of different motors for several different lco's. The Kohlers are hard to beat. Compare the prices of Kohler parts and Kawi parts and you'll see a big difference. Reliabilitywise, the Kohlers are right up there. They had a few issues a few years ago, but those have all been addressed.

That is like asking everyone if Ford or Chevy is better. Everyone's opinion is going to be based on his or her experience. This discussion has been going on for years, and it looks as if will continue for many more.

Kawasaki. Although I just blew a the valves on a 12.5, now replacing with a 14hp.

Ive never used a kohler. However I'm on my 3rd kawi now, not all in the same mower. Ive been pretty happy with them so I hated to get another brand and wish I got a kawi.
