    kohlors are good engines,they have been around a long time. but kawis are good engines also,they have more torque than kohlors,cant go wrong with either one.

    The CT is more for homeowners than commercial cutters

    I have older Gravely that is just used for rough mowing and it has a 12HP Kohler that was made in 1973 and it is still running strong!.

    I had a 15 HP Kohler on a JD Lawn Tractor no problems, my new 27 HP Kohler on my Lazer Z also is trouble free.
