Hello all,

I recently purchased a Toro Proline Wide area Walk Behind mower. It is equipped with a Kohler 14 HP engine and has a 48 in mowing deck. The identification tags on both the mower frame and the engine are gone. I need to purchase a carb for the engine but am having a hard time determining how to track down the right part numbers. Can anyone help with this? I will post some photo's asap. It is a pull start, T Bar, gear drive mower.

Thanks in advance!

Most of the Toro Proline walk behind mowers that I found have Kohler Command Pro engines. But please do post some photos so that we can make sure of the model.

Photo's of my Mystery Mower

Here are the pics. Thanks for any help or suggestions! There is a Model/SN on the attached deck, but it does not seem to give me any info on the motor, etc.

Thanks Mark and Wayne,

I am positive that it is a Kohler Command Pro 14 HP but I'm hoping for help in identifying the mower its self. I know it is a Toro Proline with T-Bar and that the deck appears to be a recycler 48" attachment produced in 1992.

Thanks again!

If I make out the numbers stamped on the plate correctly..

Model# 30148
Serial# 20391

I did find a deck manual there but like you, no engine information. :rolleyes:

After some more digging, maybe the actual mower model was 30114 although that appears to be a 1990-91 model.

For it they are showing a Kohler CV14 T-1412 Carb# 1285301 which I crossed Kohler #1285357 which then goes to 128-53-139-S on parts sites.

Kohler has a pretty nice parts lookup but it only works with IE.

Thanks for the info! That is most helpful. I had narrowed it down to three different motors, the 1412 being one of them so that helps me solidify my findings. The nice thing is that all three of the motors that I had narrowed it down to use the same carb, which is the one you listed. I have ordered one and we will see if I can make it run!

Thanks again for your efforts!

I have my fingers crossed for you. ;)

It's unfortunate that Kohler did not see fit to use a metal stamped plate or stamp the numbers directly into the engine somewhere on newer stuff. Sure would save a lot of headaches for folks in later years after the paper labels fade and get scratched. I'm sure they saved a few pennies buying a laser printer instead of a die press. :rolleyes:

First thing I did when I bought my new Deere in 2002 was write every number into the owners manual I could find on it. Even have digital photos now of them. So one way or another I think I'm covered on it. :D

Agreed! I'm creating my own "Owners/Service" manual. I've been printing everything that I can find, cataloging it, and placing it in a three ring binder. Hopefully as I refine part numbers and such things will become easier to reorder.

Thanks again for your help. I really appreciate it.:)
