how is kohler Motor compare to honda motor

Asked by: Joginder
I find the Kolher engine equally as good as the Honda motor, if not better. Lately you have been seeing Honda engines on less desirable brands. The Cub Cadet Brand is just as good with an affordable price point. Check out his site---https://www.google.com/search?q=kohler+Motor&rlz=1C1CHBF_enCA845CA845&oq=kohler+Motor&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.2636j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

Last year I bought, not problem.but this year I try to start but I can’t,what’s the reason this problem?

Asked by: Thushy
Thank you for your question. Engine starting difficulties are often the result of stale fuel in the gas tank and carburetor. Untreated gas can cause gum/varnish buildup in the fuel system, preventing it from getting to the cylinder. Start with a fresh tank of high-octane fuel using a quality stabilizer like STA-BIL® or StarTron® . The unit may require a carburetor cleaning, contact us at 1-800-668-1238 or use the authorized service dealer locator at www.cubcadet.ca for assistance.

Is it possible to have electric start added to this lawnmower?  

Asked by: Electron Inspector
Thank you for your question. This model would not have the required ring gear on the engine to add an electric starter. For the convenience of push-button electric start consider Lowe's item #876398 Cub Cadet Model #12AEA2A6596.

Can we use synthetic oil?

Asked by: Al Crisp
Yes you may choose to use synthetic oil in this lawn mower. The engine manufacturer recommends using a high-quality 10W-30 detergent oil (including synthetic) of API service class SJ or higher for operation between -18 and 40 degrees Celsius.

Can you turn off the self-propel feature and set it to manual push mode if needed (i.e manual push is better when mowing around obstacles, deck, swings etc)

Asked by: pola55
Yes you can simply push the mower if you release the drive lever that activates the drive system.

Cub Cadet - Self-Propelled Gas Lawn Mower - 173 CC - 21" is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I purchased this mower and it took me about 45 minutes once it was assembled. It worked great once it started. 3 weeks later, it won't start. I'm very very unimpressed as I've had a 10 year old craftsman that has started every single time. Do yourself a favour and do not purchase. I'm going to see if I can return this now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Brand new and it won't start I've never written a review in my life - that's how unhappy I am with this purchase. $500 for a piece of scrap. Once it was put together, it took me about an hour to start. It did a great job once it did start. I've used it 3 times now and every single time, it's at least a half hour fight to get it started. I wouldn't recommend this to an enemy!! Do not purchase… Go with a Briggs, Toro or Husky. I'm VERY disappointed. If I could rate this a zero, I would. Best of luck guys but save your $. I wish I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower I have owned this mower for 7 years now and it still runs fantastic. I change the oil once a year, clean the air filter at beginning of the season, store it indoors and give it a bit of fuel stabilizer during winter. Look after this mower and it will look after you, best mower I ever owned.
Date published: 2019-05-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Watch how you start it. Nice mower. It is worth noting that if you are the kind that "bump" the starter cord into the compression stroke before pulling; you may over prime your carb and flood out. this is just grab and pull. No problems starting it now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short life 2Year old and all falling apart . Cable are week, bag is roten ,and now the traction is gone .OH it run when it want. My older honda lasted 30 years !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lawn mower I bought this mower 4 years ago. Working perfectly for my lawn. Use only Octane 91 gas for running. Change the oil every year. Clean the mover every season by not keeping gas in the mover.
