Not the nicest one I've come across but the guy drove it down 2.5 hours (milwaukee) to deliver it to me since I couldn't go get it cause of work! yeah it does have the triad :( But I must say....It runs excellent! I got the 48" deck and 42" blower (with electric chute) and a bunch of extra parts and belts and stuff! I'm so suprised at how smooth that triad motor is. And yeah I know its prolly not gonna last but hey its been running for this long...lets see how long it will go! [IMG]http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e196/tjman00/2011-10-13121324.jpg[/IMG]

The Triad is a version of the Kohler engine that was a Kohler attempt to be an improvement over what the previous engines were. It didn't work out and many were replaced. If you have one they will say OHC on the air cleaner. Never owned on but from what I understand they will either blow up soon or may last a long time. Many were put in the Sovereigns for a period of time. Someone here may have the time period.
