    How often do you change your plugs?

    In mowers? My Kees (Kohler 25) has had one new set put in at 1500 hours :eek: :D The Exmark Metro (12.5 Kawi) has probably had 3 in 6 years, probably equates to 1800 hours. My Grasshopper (21 Kubota) had 3 sets I think in just over 2000 hours. My Lazer (26 Kohler) is on it's third set at 120 hours :( But that one doesn't count.

    I have a 52" Exmark Lazer HP and after 160 hours I'm having to replace my plugs. They look terrible. I'm hoping I don't have to change them every 160 hours. :confused:

    23 hp Kawi

    It says to check them at 160 hours....I did alright. They look terrible. So I cleaned them.....and after a few hours it sounds like it's missin. New plugs are supposed to be here in the morning. It better take care of everything. Brand new $8000 mower. I'd hate for it to see the shop this early. Anyone else have this issue w/ their Lazer?

    I usually just change them once a year and clean them with a wire brush and carb/choke cleaner once a week.
