DGS 6500 w/26hp Kohler Courage surging

I have a 2008 DGS 6500 with a 26hp Kohler Courage engine with 15hrs. After mowing my lawn, (approx. 1 acre I desengaged the PTO and set it to low idle to cool before shutting it off. Once I lowered the RPM's to a slow idle it started to surge up and down and contniued unless I increased the throttle to fast idle. Any ideas??

Why won't my rider move and keep running?


Something is jammed in the drive and when you put the mower in gear the motor stalls. U need to locate the source of the problem - once you do that all will be copacetic.

Kohler engine oil leak


Could have blown a seal however before checking for that I would check the drain plug and filter seating if you changed the filter. Make sure the drain plug is not cross threaded. You can run a little low but should never over fill. Hope this will help. Most of the time if over filled you will get some smoke as well.

Need to know how to change transmission fluid on cub cadet lt 1045 riding mower


Cub Cadet has five models in their new Series 1000 lawn tractors, all powered by Kohler engines. Cub Cadet models -- as several other lawn equipment brands -- are manufactured by MTD Products.

The Cub Cadet LT 1045 has a 20-hp Kohler single-cylinder engine, with an aluminum block and cast-iron sleeve for longer life. It has a full-pressure lubrication system with spin-on oil filter for easier maintenance. This engine is not as powerful or as long lasting as the Kohler V-Twin OHV, which is available in other models in the line, but the LT 1045's engine is still solid enough to provide years of mowing.

The hydrostatic (automatic) transmission is a good match with the engine and provides sufficient grip to cut grass on moderate inclines. Power is transferred from the engine to the transmission by a heavy-duty Kevlar belt rather than a more expensive shaft drive. A Kevlar belt also drives the three cutting blades.

The mowing deck cuts a swath of grass 46 inches wide at one pass, and is removable for service and cleaning. Four anti-scalping wheels help keep the deck from scalping grass on uneven ground. The cutting height is manually adjusted from 1-1/2 to 4 inches. The turning radius is 18 inches, which standard for lawn tractors. This model is intended for use on 1- to 2-acre lawns without many turns or small obstacles.

Do you recomend this equipment for 5 acres area?


Possibly, if it does have a a Kohler engine. Avoid A B&S engine. They simply would not hold up well to the heat and wear of that much acreage. I would recommend a John Deere, but, they are not cheap however parts are easily accessible, you can buy a cd with all repair info and their repairs are certified. I have gone through 2 brands of mowers with B&S engines, they literally threw rods and I only mow 1.3 acres.

Similar issue - buddies CubCadet with Kohler Courage 22 would not stay running. Turned out the coils got rusty where it interacts with flywheel. cleaned the contacts (be careful to shim for proper spacing) and ran like a top.
