Kohler engines at Hillhead 2022
Historic member of company’s KDI line set to be the undisputed star of this year’s show
Everything is ready for Hillhead 2022 and Kohler will be there with a stand that this year will speak not only to OEMs, but also to the rental world.
Today’s engines are increasingly complex. For Kohler, offering the highest levels of technology while ensuring simplicity for the manufacturer is a real mission. For this reason, the undisputed star of this year’s show will be a historic member of Kohler’s KDI line, the 1903TCR Stage V in Power Pack version.
The Power Packs are the ultimate expression of Kohler’s philosophy: advanced technology with compact and efficient solutions. Designed to be integrated into various applications with minimal installation effort, Power Packs possess a quick and easy interface that can significantly reduce customers’ time-to-market due to limited re-engineering requirements. The turbo common rail and various ATS systems (Kohler Flex solutions) – which can be engine mounted or chassis mounted – meet the diverse emission needs of OEMs worldwide. Even the most demanding applications are met, thanks to an extensive list of options to choose from, such as PTOs, air filters, and speed controls. The cooling system is designed and built to work in the toughest conditions, ensuring reliability and quality at the highest level.
The Power Pack line has a power range from 19kW to 112kW. The best-in-class engine for its displacement is the KDI 3404, which offers outstanding performance with a maximum power output of 112kW at 1,800 rev/min and a maximum torque of 650Nm at 1,400 rev/min.
As with all the company’s other products, Power Pack solutions benefit from Kohler’s global service network, which boasts 2,000 diesel outlets worldwide and more than 8,000 gasoline outlets.
Hillhead will also be an opportunity to talk about the Kohler Rental Partner Program, an ad hoc project that provides participating rental companies with specific training courses, dedicated discounts for the purchase of original spare parts, and access to all aftermarket documentation. Training meetings are organized with Kohler’s specialized speakers, with in-depth coverage of ordinary maintenance of the various engine families, electronic engine operation, and independent or remotely assisted diagnostics.
The goal of the programme is to lower the total cost of ownership that falls on the rental partner, making it more independent and efficient in the management of its fleet, with the intention of decreasing downtime and making vehicles available for rental as soon as possible.
