    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 have a 28 kohler efi pushing 4,000 hours and it starts righ up and runs all day no problem. Maintenance is the key.

    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.
