 27 hp KohlerŽ V-Twin OHV Companion Motors

Has anyone have success with the 27 hp KohlerŽ V-Twin OHV Companion Motors that are in the Cub Cadets?

I was told to stay away from them, but that was from a different dealer. He said to stay with the Champion or Command(?) Kohlers.

Thanks

I don't know what exactly the question is but we haven't had any problems with any of the newer Kohler engines.

Thanks Art,

I was told that the 25 hp Kohler motors did not have enough oil flow passage to the upper end of the motor. A neighbor bought a new Sears lawn tractor last year and went through two motors for the season.

After further review, I went a head with a Cub Cadet GT 1500 series with a 27 hp Kohler.

I have just under 4 acres of land that now has new grass coming up for the first time.

Took me 2.5 hours to mow. Was surprise on how smooth it ran over the old corn field.

Any advice on how to maintain it is greatly appreciated.

Clean off the unit with an air nozzle instead of a garden hose if possible when done, about once a month grease the deck and the tractor. Adjust the deck wheels to just off the ground at best for long life.
