Life Expectancy for the Kawaski air and liquid cooled engines?
Here is my question.....
With proper maintenance and no abuse, how many hours can one expect to put on a mower with either one these two engines?
First engine = Kawaski 18 hp air cooled
Second engine = Kawaski 17 hp liquid coooled
The engines are from John Deere's LX280 and LX289 models with the K61 transaxle. I may purchase one of these models. I have my eye on two '05 models with 49 and 100 hours respectively and will use primarily for mowing 1.1 acre, pulling a tiller for a small garden(not attachment) and minimal use of a blade.
