    I have an 08 tank,60in 30hp kohler, I smell burnt oil every now and then, no leaks, not using oil, plugs clean, exhaust not smoking, seem to notice it more when I stop and then take off again, any thoughts?

    Oil and grease have the same smell to them when they get hot, because your mower is so new I would check or top off your spindle housings to make sure the manufacture put enough grease in them during assembly. other than that I would watch for oil leaking around your muffler system ?
