Reliable Starting.

Turn-key starting ensures quick, reliable starting to keep your equipment up and running.

Electronic Fuel Injection.

KOHLER's closed-loop fuel injection system adjusts to operating conditions to provide the right amount of fuel to the engine allowing a user to reduce their operating costs of while mowing.

High Power Performance.

The engine was designed to deliver the power needed in even the most extreme mowing conditions—mowing up hills, in tall grass, and in wet grass. Our patented intake manifold, specially designed cylinder heads, and dual spark plugs provide optimal toque at all rpm ranges so you don't need to slow down while mowing.

1 Power (hp) and Torque (lbs ft) specifications for Kohler general purpose engines are rated pursuant to Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J1940 based on gross output testing performed according to SAE J1995 without the air cleaner and muffler. Actual engine power and torque are lower and affected by accessories (air cleaner, exhaust, charging, cooling, fuel pump, etc.), application, engine speed, ambient operating conditions (temperature, humidity and altitude) and other factors. This J1940 / J1995 rating provides consistent measurement to customers who may want to control the intake and exhaust features of the engine. For more information, contact Kohler Co.
