Yes,they are all noisey,mine kinda sounds like its coming unglued all the time.Unrefined and thrashy is the best way for me to describe kohler commands,but as long as its durable,Im ok with it.<p>----------<br>John D<br>
my 20 hp commands on scags also go through<br>mufflers- they crack by the inlets and the<br>baffles rattle loose I go thru about 1 per mower ea year. THe lifters also make nose sometimes. next motors will be kawi's phil<br>
I use 15w40 Mobil1 and it runs great. Once i added some prolong and that relly helped quiet the motor down too. <br>My dealer recommonded that grade and brand of oil for the kohlers and even the kawasakis. synthetic oil is worth the extra money. It queits and cools the engine better in my opinion.
