How many hours will a Kohler engine 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. The K582 runs SAE 30 to make up for some wear, but it's reliable as a backup rig.
