Scotts mower kohler command 25 motor bogs when mowing

JUST REBUILT FOR HEAD GASKET LEAK, DID BOTH SIDES. LOTS OF POWER RUNS GOOD. WHEN MOWER IS ENGAGED LOW BATTERY LIGHT COMES ON AND ENGINE ALMOST DIES THEN RECOVERS. HASN'T COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN ANY. THEN IT WILL BOG AS SOON AS I ENCOUNTER GRASS. DISENGAGING MOWER ALLOWS QUICK RECOVERY AND THE LOW BATTERY LIGHT GOES OFF. BATTERY CHECKS GOOD AND SYSTEM IS 13.5 VOLTS WITH MOTOR IDLING.

Hi..my name is Keith..and it sounds like you have a binding somewhere on your mowing deck..i would check all the spindles .. pulleys and blades..and check the deck belt..it could have jumped a belt guard and it running on the outside of it..but just remember it has pulley brakes to slow the pulleys down when you shut it off..so..engage the deck without the engine running and check for the binding..i hope this has helped..if not..please write me back

I have a bolens mower and just had the engine


Mine always slows down when I engage the mower drive. Since you just reinstalled the motor, I'd suggest checking the belt tension. Might be too tight.

Good luck

No - 6.5HP is enough to cut 3" at a fast walking pace. I would suspect a blown head gasket.

LTX1000 42" 18HP Kohler - Blowing fuse after 2-4 min mowing.


sounds as though you are on the right track
but be sure to check the wiring directly from the electric clutch on the front of the motor back to the switch
a wire could be pinched in the frame and shorting out intermittingly
look around and find those wires and move them around and look for chaffing and tightness
and what you could also do is to unhook the clutch at the connection to it at the front of the motor and engage switch and ride around and see if fuse blows and if not you may have an electric clutch issue

14.5hp B&S ohv looses powes & blows white smoke on riding mower


This engine has a badly designed combustion head that causes premature failure of the head gasket. The removal of the overhead cam and head is relatively easy with the engine mounted on the mower. Just remove the hood before you begin. I had the same problem, same symptoms (white oil smoke, mostly when turning or on an inclide-=left side downhill) after the second season of mowing. Made me mad when I got it apart and saw the incredibly stupid head design. Replaced the head gasket and am into my second season with the new head gasket with no more problems but I expect it to blow again at some point. Poor engine design. Easily fixed.
