Customer Reviews

54 in. 25 HP Kohler Courage V-Twin Engine 6-Speed Gear Drive Garden Tractor-DISCONTINUED is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bends and Breaks I have had trouble since the first day. The first one they sent me had a bent hood that would not close and a hole in the gas tank. They took it back and sent me another one, but the frame is bending under normal use, the parking brake does not work, and the oil drain plug broke off in my hand. I was not even forcing it. I regret buying this tractor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. Since i bought this in late fall I haven`t really had the opportunity to put it through its paces yet but what use I have gotten out of it has been very good. I feel confident it will be great.
