Kohler expands EFI engine line

October 7, 2015 -  By


Kohler Engines expanded its EFI technology with its new Confidant EFI, Command Pro EFI CH440 and Command Pro EFI 999cc. The new EFI engines will deliver an estimated 25 percent in fuel savings when compared to similar Kohler carbureted engines under comparable load conditions, according to the company.

The Confidant EFI line will include four engines ranging from 20 to 27 horsepower and an option with recoil starting.

“Our new Kohler Confidant series is fulfilling a need in the rapidly growing ZTR market with an engine that makes commercial-grade performance available at a lower price point,” said Eric Hudak, marketing manager for consumer ride and walk engines. “The Confidant EFI minimizes fuel usage, which leads to significant cash savings and fewer trips to the pump. Plus, our automotive-grade EFI system has a higher tolerance to poor fuel and provides easy, worry-free starting in all conditions—a user can simply turn the key and go.”

The Kohler Command Pro EFI 999cc is another new option designed for large commercial mowing equipment as well as chippers, concrete saws and other related equipment. This new EFI engine will deliver up to 38 horsepower and 55.3 ft-lb of torque.

The company also incorporated its EFI technology into its Command Pro CH440, its 14 horsepower and single-cylinder engine.

All three models include Kohler’s closed-loop EFI technology, which is designed to enhance fuel efficiency and make the engines start with ease. The closed-loop system includes an oxygen sensor in the muffler that monitors the air/fuel mixture. If the air/fuel mixture strays from the ideal level, the sensor triggers adjustments to the amount of fuel injected into the system, the company said.

Kohler Engines also provided more than 3,000 EFI diagnostics software kits to dealerships in the field to enable faster, more effective service repairs for commercial users. The Kohler EFI Diagnostic Software allows an outdoor power equipment dealer’s service technicians to tap into performance data logged by the engine control unit (ECU). This information helps troubleshoot engine operating conditions, failure codes, total hours, oil temperatures, detailed load parameters and more.
