Well just picked up one of these guys for 35.00.The guy had it for sell for 175.00 last week but another guy came to pick it up and it wouldnt go into reverse. Laughing Laughing So he was done with it he says it has a 12 horse briggs on it well looking it up it shows its and 11 hp.But he fired the engine up and it runs like a champ.So Im going to take this engine off and swap it on to my JD 100 which has a 12 horse on it.Just hope the rain holds off here today before I can get out and do the swap.Im not fond of the rear engine riders at all but for 35.00 and the way the engine runs man couldnt pass it up.Plus all the tires are good and hold air Very Happy

oh it definitly happens shroon,i've just been lucky enough to not have had it happen.The 1255 wheelhorse I fixed up.I sold it to my cousin (of course he hadn't paid for it yet) he took it to his place and blew it slick up!!!.I swear man it was the sweetest 12hp. kohler i've ever heard.I know the idiot mowed his grass on the hottest day like I told him not to.The grass had not been mowed in a month to.I'm having a real hard time getting over it.Of course he brought it back and didn't pay for it.
