    About 225 hours on a Gravely 260 with the 27 Kawasaki. Not that many hours. I did have a problem with the engine running rough and backfiring when it was new, and the mechanic thought it was probably the carb and ordered parts. Thing started running OK, and hasn't missed a lick since. Will likely buy another mower with this same engine in March.

    My Gravely 252 has the 27hp Kawasaki. It is a very nice engine. Quite smooth for an air-cooled model (I used to run only 26hp liquid-cooled Kawasakis).
