Kohler

Kohler is going against the flow with respect to traditional engines and responding to the new demands of a constantly changing market for solutions that are more dynamic and flexible and greater focus on what customers really need. Its aim is to facilitate the job of constructors by improving the performance of their machinery.

Kohler's 14 hp Command PRO EFI ECH440 single-cylinder engine that integrates closed-loop electronic fuel injection technology (EFI) brings the benefits of Kohler EFI — including enhanced fuel efficiency, greater overall reliability and easier starting in harsh conditions — to a wide variety of equipment, such as generators, chippers, concrete saws, welders, utility vehicles, stump grinders, air compressors, tillers, water pumps and more.

From 11 to 13 June Kohler will be at Demopark, which will take place in Eisenach, in the very heart of Germany, and covers an area of more than 25 hectares. This important exhibition has expanded rapidly from its first event back in 2009, and has become a significant and influential fixture in the calendar for the European gardening and landscaping sectors.

Kohler unveiled its new Kohler Engines Customer Experience Center, a massive, 23-acre proving grounds designed to help equipment manufacturers put Kohler engines through the toughest of trials. Located in Kohler, Wis., the grounds provide manufacturers with the unique opportunity to put Kohler engines through the paces in a variety of real-world scenarios while also enjoying close proximity to world-class hotel accommodations and other attractions.

Kohler's renowned durability, reliability, and fuel efficiency continues to be a leading choice for construction pros worldwide. A diverse array of equipment powered by Kohler engines were showcased at ConExpo-Con/AGG 2017. New equipment from leading manufacturers to be highlighted within Kohler's booth includes: a vertical lift-track loader from Wacker Neuson; a mini skid steer from Vermeer; a maximum duty vehicle (MDV) from Excel Hustler; a pressure washer from Simpson; and a concrete saw from Husqvarna.

– KOHLER will be turning heads at ConExpo 2017 with its one-of-kind, customized UTV specifically designed for construction professionals. The KOHLER Command Center, powered by a KOHLER Aegis EFI engine, is loaded with unique features and customizations, including a tool rack, a smoked bulletproof windshield, a snorkel air intake, chrome rims, custom rollover protection with equipment clamps, and a Bluetooth MP3 player with waterproof speakers.

With the demand for more fuel efficient, low-emission engines on the rise, Kohler Engines is rolling out the ECH440LE engine, a modified version of the popular Kohler Command PRO EFI ECH440 with new, lower emission outputs. The engine significantly reduces emissions, including carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen oxide (NOx), without sacrificing engine performance, according to the manufacturer.

Kohler Power Systems’ new line of mobile generators offers customers more choice in terms of power output and customization, allowing Kohler distributors to tailor a solution to suit customer requirements and price point. Kohler’s new mobile generator line also includes a propane-powered mobile generator with on-board fuel storage capacity.

A reliable power supply is critical on any job site. That’s why Kohler Co. has launched a new line of portable generators designed to deliver instant power virtually anywhere. The full line from Kohler includes nine models, ranging from a 2.0 kW inverter to a 12.3 kW gasoline generator, plus four portable water and trash pumps in varying diameters.

A hard-hit area on the New Jersey coast received a big gift Dec. 17 from Kohler Generators. In a goodwill gesture, Kohler Generators donated a commercial-grade, standby generator to the Borough of Seaside Park, N.J. The backup generator will provide emergency power to the administration and executive building, which serves as a command center and shelter during crisis situations.

JCB announced the next stage of its engine strategy with the news it has forged a partnership with a leading global manufacturer to produce engines for its compact equipment. JCB has gone from a new entrant in engine manufacturing to an innovative global producer with the first JCB engine rolling off the production line in the UK in November 2004.
