    What does it cost to have something like a dixie chopper with a 20 hp Kohler serviced. basic service, air, oil, spark plugs, and hydro oil and filter change change?

    Are you asking because you think you paid to much for one or because you need it done and have not called the dealer to ask yet?

    Prices are all over the place, I suppose a telephone call to the shop your planning to use might give you the answer.

    We usually charge 1/2 hour labor for basic service, hydros usually are another 3/4 hour. Hydro filters prolly 13.99 ea, oil 5 quarts or so $35, motor $20 oil and filter, air filter $15, plugs $6 or so for both.

    Your bill would be around $185 or so if you didn't need blades, new blades would bump you up another $40 to $45.... hope that helps....:clapping:
