    I have a oil leak near the back of my machine, it's engine oil and it's somehow coming from the engine at the front, I can't see any oil around the engine at all and have no idea how it is getting to the back, also it won't turn over now, does anybody now how the oil may be getting back there and does the Kolher have a cut switch if engine oil gets to low like a honda....thanks!

    Most big engines have a low-oil cutoff switch.

    Are you sure its engine oil and not hydro?Top off the oil , if it will start , take the skin off , pressure wash it and start looking.

    Yes it's engine oil, I just took the skin off last night, but it wouldn't start. that's why I was asking if anyone knew if it had a cut off if low in oil which it is. I will fill it up this morning and due as you suggest.

    As I got right into it I had found that a bracket had come loose and allowed the hydraulic cylinder to knock a pressure line loose. The engine was out off oil because I found out the day before on a job site the guys lost the machine of a steep slope at the side of a house. it's funny how you find these things out!!!! Anyways a few hours and she was all back together.
