Kohler to offer portable generators for construction professionals
By Anthony Capkun
November 21, 2013 – Kohler is launching a new line of portable generators targeting construction professionals. The complete line of models—ranging from a 2kW inverter to a 12.3kW gasoline generator—will be available in January 2014.
The Kohler 2 kW inverter (PRO2.0iS) includes a sensor that monitors power demand and varies engine speed for improved efficiency. The 12.3kW gasoline generator (PRO12.3EFI) is the first closed-loop electronic fuel injection (EFI) generator, says Kohler, utilizing the company’s Command PRO EFI engine. This unit also features Kohler’s Accu-Fill angled side-fill design, which promises to minimize the hassle and danger of spillage while refuelling.
The larger units include an on-unit maintenance reminder to indicate when oil and air-filter changes are needed, and some models offer recoil and electric start options. In addition, Kohler’s lineup is specifically designed with customizable features so contractors can create a portable power package fitting their needs.
