KOHLER, Wis., May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KOHLER® Engines is excited to be a first-time exhibitor at the National Hardware Show, scheduled for May 7-9, 2013 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth #6961). The company will be showcasing a variety of engines at the show, including gasoline options from its highly regarded Command PRO® commercial line, as well as its powerful and efficient diesel line and its trusted Courage® line for homeowners. The products to be highlighted were carefully selected by KOHLER to reflect the wide-ranging needs of today's outdoor power equipment.
"Only a handful of industry shows offer us the opportunity to get in front of such a diverse group of category decision makers," said Cam Litt, marketing manager for Kohler Engines. "The home improvement industry crosses into so many categories that are important to us—lawn and landscape, building/construction, agriculture, rental, and more. Of course, whether powering equipment on the jobsite or in the backyard, all KOHLER engines are designed to deliver reliability, ease-of-use, unmatched fuel efficiency—and of course, dependable starting. We're certainly eager to share the KOHLER Engines story—and details about our full range of products—with everyone at the show."
Specific products to be featured in the KOHLER Engines booth at the National Hardware Show include the following:
• KOHLER Command PRO – Three Command PRO horizontal - shaft engines, ranging from 7 to 14 hp, will be on display. These single-cylinder gasoline engines—designed to perform in all weather conditions—feature a compact, drop-in design to fit most equipment without major modification. KOHLER's exclusive Quad-Clean technology is also integrated to protect the engine in dirty conditions and a large fuel tank helps deliver longer run times.
• KOHLER Courage – The 6.5 hp SH265 is the go-to engine every consumer needs. Auto-choke, electric start and dual ball bearings are utilized for smooth and easy starting. A large fuel tank helps get the job done with less downtime, and a dual-element air cleaner keeps dust out of the chamber to protect critical components.
• KOHLER Diesel – The 9.8 hp KD420 diesel engine is a do-it-all workhouse for commercial/industrial jobs. The direct injection system and cast-iron cylinders produce increased power while helping to lower fuel consumption and extend engine life. An automatic compression release and self-bleeding fuel system are also integrated to provide faster, easier starts. The KD420 is EPA/CARB 4 emissions compliant and includes an industry leading three-year warranty.
• KOHLER Courage XT8 – The 8.0 hp Courage XT8 is clean, quiet and easy-to-use. Smart-Choke technology offers easy, no-prime starting and an Accu-Fill gas tank helps guard against overfilling and spilling of gas. Quiet performance is delivered through a front tube outlet muffler, which directs exhaust away from the user.
