November 20, 2014 – KOHLER Engines developed its latest product advancement – the Command PRO EFI 824cc – in direct response to the growing trend towards larger mowing decks and faster speeds for commercial ZTR mowers. As a result, equipment manufactures in the green industry have responded strongly to the new engine. Numerous OEMs have already committed to the technology and displayed the new KOHLER engine in their 2015 mowers during the recent GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Ken. Leading commercial turf manufactures who showed and demonstrated the engine during the industry’s largest annual event include: Bad Boy, Cub Cadet, Dixie Chopper, Gravely, Husqvarna, SCAG, and Wright.
“By staying focused on the evolving needs of the industry, it appears that we’ve really struck a chord among OEMs and end users alike with our new KOHLER 824cc engine,” said Mark Johansen, Director of Marketing for KOHLER Engines. “It was certainly rewarding to see our newest engine in so many commercial mowers while walking the show in Louisville. We’re grateful for the ongoing support of our OEM customers and we look forward to continuing to work in close collaboration to meet the needs of lawn and landscape professionals in 2015 and beyond.”
Launched just prior to this year’s GIE+EXPO, the KOHLER Command PRO EFI 824cc engine is available in four models (ECV850, ECV860, ECV870 and ECV880), which offer between 27 and 33 horsepower as well as best-in-class peak torque. In addition, the new engines deliver industry-leading fuel efficiency that will allow commercial users to save at least $600 per engine in fuel costs over similar sized carbureted engines, based on typical commercial cutter usage.
