I work for a large equipment dealer in north central ILL and we are a Kawi, Kohler, Honda, Briggs, Tech, well you get the picture. I have to say that we have had the best luck with the Kawi. by far. Kohler has had a large amount of problems with head gaskets and oil leaks. On some models where regular thorough cleaning is difficult, Kohler has had problems with over-heating due to all the dirt sticking to any and all oil seepage. Hope this info helps.:blob3:

How do you clean the motor? On my Kohler 25h, it looks like you could spray engine cleaner around the head fins and hose off (on a cold motor of course) but I would be worried about getting some of the electrical stuff wet that is under the flywheel. Removing the shrouds is a major task. What would you recommend? Thanks, Rich
