    I never had any problems with kohlers over 10 plus years. One mower I bought used and that was really old had a bad ignition part and it was a $100 repair, that's it.

    I've had two kawasakis, one backfires when you stop it, one had to be replaced under warranty at 100 hours, and the replacement sputters/misses sometimes in a way that makes me wonder what's in its future.

    i have the same opinion i have even gone as far as not stocking
    any mowers with the kai engine unless i have to and (it's sad to say) the exmarks and hustler walkbehinds use them exclusively
    i think exmark is looking elsewhere to power there walkers
    i have had so many problems with the kai and when you need to do warranty it takes an act of congress to get them to pay.
    take it from a dealer go with a kohler

    Ditto -- Kohler outperforms my kawsaki's and start easier too.
