Kohler engines have reached a key milestone in their development: Stage V certification for KDI engines in the 19-56kW power range.
Recently, manufacturers of both on-road and off-road diesel engines have come under scrutiny as significant contributors to high pollution levels, especially in urban areas. However, as President of the Diesel division of off-road engines at Kohler Co., I would like to provide some additional context to demonstrate how diesel technology has improved significantly over the years and how the technology continues to have a bright future in the off-road sector.
Kohler presents the Command PRO EFI ECH440, the single-cylinder engine that integrates closed-loop electronic fuel injection technology (EFI). The 14 hp engine 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.
Kohler recently unveiled an all-new range of large diesel industrial generators at a global launch event in Strasbourg, France. The company’s new KD Series includes generator sets in nodes between 800 kVA and 4200 kVA, which are powered by an entirely new line of G-Drive engines, also introduced at the event. The generators will be available globally under the KOHLER and KOHLER-SDMO brands and are designed to deliver extreme durability and ultimate reliability in a variety of emergency and prime applications. Targeted industries include: data centers, healthcare, water treatment, oil and gas, telecommunications, mining, and more.
Kohler Power Systems is adding two new models to its robust line of diesel-powered mobile generators. The 90REOZT4 and 120REOZT4 offer flexible options to meet end-users’ needs and feature Kohler’s unrivaled quality and reliability. The Tier 4 Final generator models are built to withstand the elements, run long hours in prime and standby applications, and meet all EPA emission standards.
Kohler Power Systems is launching an all-new line of large natural gas generators designed specifically for standby, prime or continuous power applications in the North American market. The new line of large gas gensets, which will be available in nodes ranging from 425 kW to 1,300 kW, meet Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) operational requirements and offer advanced control and monitoring capabilities through the Kohler Decision-Maker 8000 digital controller. Paired with Kohler transfer switches and switchgear, the company offers total system integration with a seamless solution customized and built by a team of Kohler engineers.
The KDI Power Unit range of engines developed by Kohler Engines for the power generation market is a ready-to-use, versatile, high-output solution for both end users and OEMs alike. The range was recently expanded with the addition of a new 3.4-litre model.
Kohler has expanded its mobile generator product line with the addition of a fourth model that is able to run on clean, efficient propane — the 30REZGT. Like its predecessors, the 50REZGT, 70REZGT, and 125kVA, this latest generator model was developed in cooperation with the Propane Education & Research Council.
