Recommender: Mower engines

November 8, 2017 -  By

Briggs & Stratton released the Vanguard Oil Guard System for its 810 cc EFI V-Twin and Big Block commercial engines, allowing for 500-hour oil change intervals.

What mower engines do you recommend and why?

“All my mowers have Kohler engines. (I’ve) had great luck with them and when needed, have had great warranty/service from dealers. Having the same engines makes maintenance simpler, and it is easier to notice if something is wrong.”

“Kawasaki, but they all have pros and cons. Kawasaki loves oil, and we have found that Kohler cannot maintain power with vacuum systems. Every brand and setup is hard to determine.”
