34 kohler

Did a couple searches and didnt find anything on the motor. Anyone know how they are doing for reliability? Is it a new motor or proven?

Its been available to the OEM's for quite a while but it has been slow to catch on. It's physically larger than the Kawi and Vanguard and difficult to squeeze into existing designs. eXmark is the first that I can think of to adopt the big Kohlers.

In my opinion, I would say it's unproven in the industry.
