    I have a large volume of commercial properties. I have used Kholer, Honda, and Kawi engines. What are you finding to work the best for you in the long hall? :weightlifter:

    Im sure the Kohler is, the largest air cooled engine I currently own is a 19hp Kawasaki. My liquid stuff ranges from Chinese LaiDong to a Fiet Diesel engines.

    I don't know that it is always "brand". I guess the point that I am trying to make is that Honda as an example makes very good engines in the 4-13 HP but their big engines in the past were close to junk. I have 5 of the 20 H.P engines in the pile that didn't last 100 hours. Their new larger engines they came out with 2 years ago are much better, not great but very good. Kohler Command Pro engines are extremely good but they made a series that was something like OHC that wasn't so good, not terrible but not the best choice.

    To compete all the manufactures have paid much more attention to quality. Briggs is now much better than it used to be and Robin Subaru has improved a lot. Kawasaki has most always been good.
