lt28 with Kohler / Lombadini 17hp diesel
« on: October 15, 2020, 04:25:11 PM »
 Looking to buy a lt28. Im looking at the 17 hp diesel option. I have been told that it may be to  heavey for the saw head and vibration is another issue. If it was made by yanmar I would feel a lot more confident. But its a Kohler 17hp diesel. Dose anyone own or have knowledge about the lt28 diesel.

Is it a single or twin? In my experience single cylinder diesels tend to be noisy and vibrate. Lombardini makes a good engine as long as Kohler can provide timely parts and service. It was non existent here for our Yanmar powered pumps.

Just my 2 cents, I've ran my LT28 with a 19hp Kohler gas engine for 3 years and it's provided enough power for all my sawing, don't know that you'd gain much with a 17hp diesel.
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.
I'm chasing the sawdust dream.
