Purchased a 27 HP kohler mower tractor and had it replaced once for tearing up spindles and belt and know less than 80hrs.on it and starter took a ***. Starter rebuilders state that starter is a problem on these engines due to guality of materials used for the gear on the starter.
This machine is less than 2 yrs. old when it broke down. Kohler stinks and so does Sears for their poor customer service. A whopping $100 for the gear alone the starter over $200.
Shame on you Kohler you will be another Company going down the line like Car manufacturers and banks. shame shame shame
