KOHLER announced the launch of the Command PRO dual-fuel CH440DF engine, an addition to the popular Command PRO lineup that construction professionals have come to rely on to power a wide variety of equipment. The CH440DF carbureted engine is designed to operate on gasoline or propane, offering users the ultimate in flexibility. Simply move a lever left or right to switch between fuels based on fuel levels, preference or task.
This horizontal-shaft, single-cylinder, four-cycle engine is part of the KOHLER Command PRO lineup, which ranges between 4.5 and 14 horsepower gasoline engines designed to power a wide variety of tools on the jobsite, including: concrete saws, compactors, trowels, portable generators and larger products like power buggies.
“Our users depend on KOHLER to provide offerings that meet their diverse needs on the job site. The new CH440DF engine is designed to do just that,” said Ben Marotz, marketing manager for KOHLER Engines. “This engine provides great versatility, in addition to the durability, reliability and consistent performance that KOHLER is known for and our partners depend on.”
The CH440DF comes with several standard performance-enhancing features, including: KOHLER’s Quad-Clean four-stage cyclonic air cleaner for maximum protection against dirt and debris; Fuel Secure automatic fuel line shutoff for clean starts on jobsites, a large fuel tank for longer runtime; cast-iron cylinder liners and forged-steel crankcases for durable operation; and Oil Sentry protection which automatically shuts down the engine in low-oil conditions.
The full line of KOHLER Command PRO single-cylinder, horizontal-shaft engines come with a full three-year commercial warranty. The new CH440DF engine will be on display at World of Concrete 2020, KOHLER booth C4015. Attendees are welcome to visit the Allen Engineering booths (Indoor-C5803, Outdoor-O40739) to see the KOHLER engine inside a power buggy.
KOHLER Launches New Command PRO Low-Emission, EFI Propane Engine
As the demand for fuel-efficient, low-emission engines continues to grow, KOHLER is pleased to announce the launch of the Command PRO EFI propane engine (Model PCV680LE). An addition to the company’s strong EFI lineup, the PCV680LE twin-cylinder, vertical-shaft engine significantly lowers exhaust emissions due to an integrated catalyst and optimized fueling.
“Low-emission technology is important for the environment, as well as users, and our goal is to ensure that alternative-fuel engines perform as well or better than gasoline- or diesel-fueled products,” said Quinn Derby, marketing manager-gasoline engines. “We are continuously refining our products and developing new ones, as a way to continue to reduce emissions without sacrificing performance.”
An alternative to gasoline- and diesel-fueled engines, the PCV680LE 22-hp model is a cleaner-burning, more fuel-efficient alternative for commercial equipment. It saves significantly on fuel with less downtime for refueling. KOHLER EFI low-emission propane engines produce over 80 percent fewer exhaust emissions. KOHLER closed-loop EFI technology allows the PCV680LE to optimize performance by automatically adapting to operating conditions.
EFI engines also offer automotive-like turnkey starting and the elimination of carburetors and their associated maintenance. Like all Command PRO engines, the PCV680LE feature’s KOHLER’s three-year commercial warranty.
The PCV680LE engine will be on display at World of Concrete 2020, KOHLER booth C4015.
