    How many hours should you expect on a Kolher motor? Would you replace the mower at the end of the motors live or invest in rebuilding the motor?

    I have 2500 on my 22HP Kohler Command. Knock on wood, still going strong.

    A recent article in a lawn magazine said, for gas engines the life expectency is 100 hours per horse power. And a diesel was 125 hours per horse power.

    A well maintained Kohler 25 should last around 3000 hours. 4000 on a Dixie Chopper.

    I would replace the engine if it wore out rather than rebuilding it.
