Hustler 2009 Fast-Trac 48 inch 19 hp Kohler

The only thing I don't like about this mower is that it burns oil now with 100 hours on it. I was told after 50 hours, the rings would seat and it would stop using oil. But it hasn't. I called Hustler about this issue and they said they would call back. This mower was a demo and had about 20 hours on it. I guess I should have shopped around more before I bought this mower.

Kohler heads NEW
by: Anonymous

I own 3, 17 to 20 hp and I too have had oil around the head. Tightening the head solved the problem. Didn't use a new seal.

Really was a disappointment on the brand. Thought they were better machines than that.

Using oil
by: Anonymous

These kohler engines need to have the head gaskets replaced to stop the oil usage. i know i own one, the factory head gaskets are junk. since i had mine replaced it doesnt smoke or use oil anymore. there are several blogs on the internet that discuss this issue with the Kohler engines
