I have a Kohler command 28 series that powers a torro z

Customer Question

I have a Kohler command 28 series that powers a torro z master mower. It will run for an hour to an hour and a half, then quit. It won't restart unless you use a battery charger. It seems that something may be draining power. Is there an alternator on this unit?. What suggestion do you have to solve the problem.

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Yes, there is an alternator on this engine, it is located under the flywheel. You also have a voltage regulator that could be bad which would cause this problem as well. There is a way to test these items to see which one is bad so that you aren't replacing one when the problem is the other. I can help you to do this test if you have a volt meter.

That is fine. Do you have an idea as to when that might be?
