KOHLER Diesels Launched in North America
July 1st, 2008:
KOHLER OFFERS FULL LINE TO OEMS
With the introduction of its first diesel engine line for the North America market, the Global Power Group of Kohler Co. is again putting distributors and OEMS customers first.
"Kohler can immediately use the new diesels in our own generator business and in the growing national fleet of generators and light towers offered by Kohler Rental Power" says Rich Koehl, director of marketing and quality at Kohler Co.'s engine business. "But the big story here is how diesels open up a whole new realm of OEM applications. That's our focus. We said we were going to have a full line offering and now we do - gasoline and diesel engines from 4 to 65 horsepower. Kohler is now a one-stop shop for OEM's.
With the added choice of singe-or multi-cylinder diesel engines from 7 to 65 horsepower (50kW and under), Kohler now extends its reputation for quality and the full reach of industry-leading parts, service and sales support to KOHLER diesels. KOHLER engines are supplied to equipment manufacturers worldwide in the lawn and garden, commercial and industrial, agricultural and construction markets.
"Kohler is very serious about competing in the non-highway engine market on a worldwide map with this diesel technology at a competitive price point," says Paul Bartlett, president-Kohler Co.'s engine business.
"We're seeing a very high level of enthusiasm among everyone at Kohler Engines," adds Koehl. "KOHLER diesels will be supported by solid application engineering team that's ready to work with OEMs in a responsible and creative manner. And Kohler distributors and service technicians are already up to speed and ready to provide sales and service."
The new emission-compliant KOHLER diesel engines will feature an extensive range of both air and liquid-cooled units that offer advanced fuel efficiency and low sound levels, plus a myriad of air intake and oil-filtration systems.
