    ok, 3400 hours is crazy!!! that's really getting your moneys worth. I have a 26LC with just under 950 now, trying to maintain it to death...I'd love to come close to that 3400hrs. it's hard for me to even think about buying anything but a kawi.

    I have mostly Kawasaki engines on my equipment with some Kohler and Griggs also, they just have a few hundred hours !! However, generally speaking, the Kawasaki engines seem to be good for about 2,500 to 3,000 hours on average ... assuming that you keep them well maintained. However, some will have a shorter life and some will have a longer life.
