2012 Lazer Z x with EFI Kohler

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a 2012 Lazer Z x with a 60" deck and 29hp Fuel injected Kohler and want some feedback on the engine. It will be my first Kohler as all my Exmarks thus far have been Kawi powered. I have had good luck with the Kawasaki engines.

I've got the older 26 kohler efi and more than pleased. Right at 3500 hours and never want a carb engine again. Burning right at 1 gph! I've not experienced the new efi but I'd imagine you would be pleasantly surprised!

I too have the older 26 efi got it the first year they offered it. Great engine I have 2000 hrs and going strong. I run synthetic mobile 1 oil in mine right after the break in oil.

Looked at them today and went over it pretty well with the local dealer. Now I just have to check prices with a few more dealers as they don't seem to want to budge at all on the price except for the $500 rebate from Kohler on the efi equipped models.

We have always had very good luck with kohler however we have never had the efi ones before. Just got a 34 kohler on a 72" cheetah this year and am getting around 1.5 gph with plenty of power which is not bad considering I am turning a 72 inch deck.

What dealer you going to?

I bought a new lazer last year with the 29 kohler efi and love it, I will be buying efi from here on out when i buy new mowers, The fuel savings is huge compaired to my 28 kawi on my 08 lazer.
