Kohler Industrial Engines"Kohler Engines - Born to Run"
"Since the 1920's, Kohler has been one of the largest producers of air-cooled, four-cycle engines. From the early cast-iron engines to today's overhead camshaft engine line, Kohler engines has proven itself as one of the world's finest manufacturers of small engines. With four lines of small engines, Kohler has an engine for nearly every application, whether it be for consumer or commercial turf equipment needs, or industrial or construction applications."
The above quote from the Kohler Engines web page pretty well sums up the state of Kohler Engines at the present time. I can add to this by saying Kohler makes a very good product that is geared toward the future. By this, I mean they are ready to take on the 2001 and beyond emission standards with engines such as the new Kohler Aegis pictured to the left. When purchasing a product with a Kohler Engine on it, you don't have to worry about the quality of the engine. You will find Kohler to be a commercial grade engine built to last many seasons.
The Kohler Command is part of the new breed of engines to hit the market in recent years. These engines run more efficient by utilizing technologies like overhead valves, hydraulic valve lifters, full flow pressure lubrication. The Command comes in two flavors, Command and Command Pro. The Command is a 4-cycle, air-cooled, gasoline engine with the following features:
The Command Pro adds these additional features:
The Kohler Command and Command Pro are used on a variety of applications from consumer products like Cub Cadet and John Deere mowers to commercial / industrial applications. Also, check out the new 28 hp Command Pro fuel injected engine. This gives you an idea of the direction the industry is headed. If your into Kart racing you might want to take a look at Kohler's new CH6T XKE Go-Kart engine. The command is a "World Class" engine and can compete with the best of them.
Command CS Pro
Kohler's CS line of horizontal crankshaft OHV engines, designated as the Command CS Pro series, is in 4, 6, 8.5, 10 and 12.75 horsepower. These engines were designed to supplement the need for commercial grade engines in the single cylinder small horsepower range of 4 to 12.5 hp, currently not available in the Command Pro series. Two footprint sizes cover the five engines. Here's some of the features to look for on this line of new engines.
Kohler has designed a new engine to meet the needs of the future. Combining a patented liquid-cooling design, heavy-duty air filtration system and many of the proven features of Kohler's air-cooled Command series, the quiet-running Kohler Aegis provide the commercial turf and consumer lawn and garden market with peak power and torque, fuel efficiency, long engine life and extended maintenance intervals. This new engine will come in 20hp to 31hp V-twin OHV design. Featuring technologically advanced cooling systems and revolutionary air filtration, these powerhouses deliver cooler oil temperatures, consistent running temperatures and improved air filtering for peak engine performance and reliability.
The Kohler Courage unique configuration of the inverted crankcase ensures leak-proof operation and easy oil system maintenance. Automotive technologies like a twin-cam design, cross-flow cylinder head and ported power intake deliver a new standard of peak power and reliability. A twin-reciprocating balance system, tri-phase air induction system, sound-deadening valve cover and high performance polymer gears ensure quiet, smooth operation.
Kohler still has most parts and shortblocks available for the classic K-series and Magnum engines. These L-head engines have served the commercial and residential markets well for many years and are still running strong.
