    I've decided to buy a Hustler FasTrak 48" before the end of '07 before the '08 price increase. Lawns I mow are mostly flat. Can't decide between the 19 hp Kawasaki or Kohler engine. Comments :confused:.

    Kawi. Kohlor has a much higher failure rate.

    Kohler is what most people use here. Even when given the choice of Kawi or Kohler. Both have about the same failure rate.

    My Kohler slung a rod this summer. No more Kohler's for me. After reading here, I really do believe that Kohlers fail more frequently.

    If you're experiencing kawi failures at the same rate as kohler, Let me know what dozens of my customers are doing wrong with kohler engines so I can pass it along.
