Yeah I have an old craftsman mower with a Honda engine. It is a beast. Never a problem. Ive had nothing but trouble out of my riding lawnmower with a total piece of shyt Kohler engine. Its down about 1/3 of the time, including right now. I may just take tha mother effer to Lowes and burn it on the parking lot. Total piece of shyt. My next riding mower will have a Kawasaki or Honda no doubt.
