    Can someone please tell my neighbor Mr Bill day that the mower he is looking at, that has a 25 Kohler is not what the doctor ordered. He has been told by the dealer that they have had NO PROBLEMS with the 25.
    I need all the professionals at lawnsite to give this future victim all the info on this motor. I will give him a print out later.
    thank you
    John

    Don't do it, run, run, run, like the wind!

    John, you might be better off doing a quick search and taking him the million threads about this subject.

    Just a thought.

    I've not owned one of the past boat anchors. I do remember that a couple of years ago there was a ton of posts on it. As suggested you might want to give that a try.

    Soupy & 65 hoss Thanks
    BUT he wants to hear it from people now. He does not believe someone could make a motor and sell it to professionals that rely on it for there income:laugh: I said yeah!.

    kohler did have some problems before with their 25 horse but they have got them straighten out in the last 4 yrs so if the mower is newer than that he will be ok

    I have had over 15 engines and it is by far the worst I have ever had.

    Remember when they had so many headgasket problems. Good to hear they got that fixed.

    Mr Bill , the 25 I got came with tapping from the lifters, then 2 broken push rods that caused me to get new 2 mufflers as well.
