How many hours will a Kohler Courage engine last?

Last Updated: 26th February, 2020

39
Don't want to be the bearer of bad news however, The Courage engine will more than likely never even get close to 2000 hrs. If you take really good care with how hard you run it and how frequent you change the oil and use synthetic oil you may get another 500 to 700 hrs. but that will just about let it out.

Thereof, how many hours do Kohler engines last?

We currently have over 12,000 hours on old K582 and 9,000 hours on a Kohler Command 25hp. Both had oil leak issues, but a little maintenance and oil gasket replacement seals up the leaks and they run great.

Likewise, how many hours do Briggs and Stratton engines last? How many hours can one expect from a Briggs & Stratton ELS V-Twin? I would guess that they're built to last about 500 hours, but not sure. If a guy changes the oil like he's supposed to, cleans out the air filter every week and changes the fuel filter every year.

Accordingly, how many hours does a mower last?

1500 hours

How many hours will a small engine last?

Most are rated for around 2000 hours of use. That's with good maintenance, of course. The biggest thing that kills these small engines these days is leaving gas in them, it will turn to varnish and ruin the fuel system, including the carb in the worst cases.
