Kohler launches portable generator line
By Alyssa Dalton
February 11, 2014 – Kohler has launched a new line of portable generators designed to deliver instant power—ranging from a 2.0kW inverter to a 12.3kW gasoline generator, plus four portable water and trash pumps in varying diameters.
The smallest model, the Pro2.0iS, includes a sensor that monitors power demand and varies engine speed, which claims to help save fuel, reduce noise levels, and minimize exhaust gases. An integrated Oil Sentry feature automatically powers the engine down in low-oil conditions. On the high end of the line, the Pro12.3EFI features closed-loop electronic fuel injection technology, which promises to help users save $1 on fuel for every hour of operation. Seven accessory kits are also available, providing more than 100 custom configurations. Available options include an auto-locking hand truck handle kit, a wheelbarrow handle kit, a lifting kit, and a cord management kit.
