WE MAKE YOU MORE POWERFUL.
Yes, we make reliable power products (like engines and generators), but anybody can say that. At Kohler, every engine we make is designed to help you achieve more than you imagined.
Your job, your earnings, your time — that’s what matters most. That’s why we’re maniacally obsessed with making great engines. They must work — or you don’t. You’ll only get as far as your engine can take you. That’s why it must be a KOHLER.
Kohler Engines Overview.
WE’RE NEARLY 100 YEARS OLD AND ONLY GETTING BETTER WITH AGE.
Built to last since 1920, KOHLER engines have been battled-tested at the South Pole, Hoover Dam, WWII and victory lane. And today, we power the toughest equipment in the commercial world. From heavy construction to lawn and landscape, the pros count on KOHLER.
WE EAT, SLEEP AND BREATHE QUALITY.
Every KOHLER engine is meticulously quality-tested start to finish. Our engineering team runs tens of thousands of hours of performance tests during our design process. Everything’s examined — down to the bolt.
Once the engine design passes our inspection, it’s ready for production. But before it leaves our factory, we put it through the paces one more time. The result is total reliability.
WE FORGE THE FUTURE.
We are agents of change. A company of fearless thinkers driven to do everything better. And we have the pedigree to prove it.
EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection)
We created the world’s first EFI engines for lawn mowers 20 years ago and now offer more EFI engines than any other brand.
KDI (Kohler Direct Injection)
We built the world's first Tier 4 diesel engine (KOHLER Diesel KDI) without a DPF. This revolutionary engine provides operators with a Tier 4 final solution and significantly lower operating costs.
WE’RE EVERYWHERE YOU ARE.
With 13,000 dealers worldwide, we provide the help you need any time, anywhere. And we’re not afraid to go above and beyond to make sure you’re taken care of. There’s no part we can’t get, no question we can’t answer.
SAY GOODBYE TO DOWNTIME.
With more power, more torque and longer maintenance intervals, our KDI engines don’t stop ‘til you do.
High torque at low rpms — up to 74 hp@2200 rpms
You only change the oil every 500 hours. That’s 2X longer than standard diesel engines.
Fuel Efficient Advanced injection system significantly reduces fuel consumption*
*Compared to previous KDI models.
