    It's possible the engine may be running to rich. I do not hear this complaint that often based on how many we have sold since day one. What kind of engine do you have Kohler or Kawasaki? Have this unit checked by your Great Dane dealer to see if there's an engine issue.

    It has a 20 h.p. kohler......
  4. Make sure filter is clean, and Kohler has a 90º tube elbow you can clamp on and rediect the exhaust fumes.

    I think it is 1¼" tube too.

    Ditto what LGF said. I had same problem with my surfer and bought a little deflector for the muffler from my dealer and it has made all the difference in the world; I can't believe they sell them without these already in place.
