    My Wildcat just recently started cutting off when mowing. It will usually start right back up or within a couple of minutes. I was wondering if anyone has had this problem or knows what the problem could be.

    Also the engine is a 27hp kohler with less than 500 hours

    Can you be more specific? Is it a efi/dfi fuel system? How many hours? Is it new? Whats the deal?

    You got me! It's probably the coil. Does it have a carb?

    Its a 2005 kohler command pro 27. it has 480 hours. It has never done this before and only has done it all the time. To start it back up I have to choke it.
