Diesels run forever, can't beat the smell of power.
The older Walker diesels and LC gassers had issues (not major) with the radiator screen becoming plugged. They fixed it somewhat with a reversing fan.

I have a 26EFI and there have been no problems with heat. My application doesn't need liquid cooled. If you are just mowing grass and can get the diesel at a good price, go for it. If you are buying new, you can save some bucks with an air cooled machine.
