When i started in the early 80's 17 hp kohler was the engine everyone wanted it was a horizantal shaft produced far more power than you could ever use and was very good on fuel. Now manufacturers use verticle shaft engines mostly which takes twice the horsepower to achieve same results. And you burn twice the fuel. First couple years kawasaki came out you could not give them away we bought one around 1986 even finding a spark plug was a job back then. Equient has improved in most aspects except length of life.
