    Which is the best and why (13 HP engine Kholer or Kawasaki)?

    I think that this is probably going to come down to a matter of opinion more than anything else. I personaly would rather have a Kawi engine then a Kholer. Is the Kholer a twin or a single. I know that the new Kawi 13 is a twin. A twin is going to produce less vibration than a single. Something to consider if you are going to be using it alot.

    I have a Kohler 13 hp in my snapper rear rider which was used commerically for about 8 years --never a problem period with engine-- None-- But, Knowing the durability of Kawasaki- as I have had many of their engines-- Kawasaki is probably the best--Either probably wouldn't be any mistake although. The Kohler is a single cylinder.
