It has a pail of water on top? Strange definition of liquid cooled.

Yeah?  don't get that either.  Doesn't look liquid cooled?? Does have strange shrould, is there a radiator in there? None on tractor that I'm seeing at least???  Maybe guy thinks all the little vent hoses have water in them?  Price isn't bad tho, looks like nice rig.

It's still a $600 tractor around here, I like those Craftsman tractors but they aren't special.

Had to do some Googling, but found this:

I didn't know that Kohler made a WC engine.  I'm guessing that it's most likely and prteey good engine,

For reference purposes ,the E-T s had no real heat disipation . When you close em up tight , that is not a good thing . So I am guessing they went for style and heat dissipation . My two and 1/2 cents .
