Fast

It was spinning the motor so fast I thought I left the plugs out. Then it fired up. I drained all the old fuel out before turning the key. Which gave me time to watch how fast it was spinning the twin cylinder briggs.

Review after two seasons

I has worked for over two mowing seasons without fail. I only need the cheap plastic gear but the whole starter including the gear was $3 more, so considering the throw away society we live in I purchased the whole unit and trashed the other. I am pleased with it considering the price point.

It works and fits right

It's awesome 👌

Perfect fit for 54" Craftsman Zero turn mower with a KT735 Kohler engine.

Perfect fit for 54" Craftsman Zero turn mower with a KT735 Kohler engine. Quickest shipment and delivery ahead of schedule.

Perfect fit

Starter fit perfectly, functions flawlessly. Gave new life to an old 1997 motor. Ordered a second one for spare.

A third the price

The starter arrived on time and slipped right into place.The Amazon pricing was about a third that of the brand-name starter for essentially the same thing. It can be achallenge to find obscure items like this starter for a40-year-old ride-on mower, but worth the time if you havepatience.
