Toro LX425 - KOHLER COURAGE - A LEMON, STAY AWAY
STORRS, CONNECTICUT -- Bought a Toro LX425 2 years ago to the day when the Kohler Courage engine gave out coincidentally along with the warranty. Had nothing but problems with this thing, specifically the Kohler Courage 600 Engine, which constantly smoked and sounded like an old greyhound diesel bus on a cold winter morning. The engine just never sounded right and the vertical and overhead cam idea just begs for problems. It never wanted to start and the battery came from the factory (like the other reveiwer said) dead. Stay away from both Toro and especially Kohler! Both ain't companies ain't what they used to be. Briggs & Stratton, I'm BACK!
