Scag used kawasaki engine that may be loser

When I was at the dealer they had 6 blown engines and all had less than 6 months use. All from one company. The conclusion so far tooooo much dust. When I checked ours it was loader beyond anything I ever seen.

This might seem like a stupid question but will Scag supplement a kohler engine over kawasaki? I really like the design of this mower,as I'll be looking at up grading for next year season.

I'm also hearing that these newer FS engines have a junk air filtration system, you basically have to clean out the air filter daily the best you can. Pain

The darn filter looks fine but they layed it over and most of the dust is accumulation on the top. That suggest the unit might not be getting enough air. I am definitely putting on the cannister. I just finished rebuilding a 4 year old 13 hp kaw and I put a cannister on it.

Yep. 48". Absolutely love it. Thing is a tank. My guys prefer it over Exmark Turf Tracer and Viking. Close to seventy hours on it now.

Will the dealer or factory put a canister filter on? I would hate to lose warranty for a mod.

This is one week of use, maybe 25 hours. I am putting the cannister on myself. Kawasaki is very well known for not doing anything when a unit burns oil. If you are worried about warranty you can put the old filter on betorebyou run it in.
