i think ive dealt with one, wasn't bad, never has had any issues. same with Tecumseh pretty good too. I just dont like tecumseh's pull start mechanism that connects it to the crankshaft. the one i had to deal with im pretty sure was very hard used so that could have something to do with it (sometimes wouldn't catch or half catch and sound like you ran a hedge trimmer into a chain link fence)

My experience with Kohler has been excellent so far. I have a small 15 year old John Deere rider with a 13hp Kohler engine. I've had it for 3 years and I am the 3rd owner- who knows how it was maintained before me. The oil stays golden yellow even after one year of use and I mow for at least 1 hour each week May-September.

[QUOTE=VetteOwner;152723]$80 walmart special already!
QUOTE]

do you have a link? i've searched walmart and all over the internet, and the cheapest i can find new is a 20" for $139.99. i'd prefer to pay the extra $10 to get larger rear wheels, slight more HP, and an extra year warranty for a 22" briggs. besides, i got a coupon for 10% off.

i'm considering going w/ a kohler powered husqvarna. besides a great deal at sears right now, i'm intrigued by the prospects of more efficiency(OHV), quieter motor, and paper air filter(no more oiling!).

husqvarna is a great brand

ur complaining about oiling a filter? hell i dont think weve ever messed with any of ours...(same foam oil thing too)

ohv doesnt mean better efficiency, means more oil and more crap to break haha sometimes cant get around the feature but its a freakin lawnmower. the OHV on my riding mower tick like mad and of course to see whats going on i gotta rip off the whole front half of the tractor.

do u have a very secure place to store said mower?

most people wouldnt steal the cheapo (well in the big scheme) $150 regular ol brand mower vs the husquvarna thats worth alot. (kinda like comparing a caviler to a mercedes)

In a place I used to live, we didn't have a shed, so we usually just pushed the mower under the deck. We had to start locking it to a tree with a bicycle lock because we noticed the neighbor was "borrowing" it every week without asking, and returning it with no gas in it.

Quieter motor would be a big selling point for me.

it will def be locked up!

there isn't much dif in the price 'cause of the sale, but i guess perception can be a great motivator.
