Kohler Launches Single-Cylinder Engines In Europe

By Roberta Prandi17 September 2018

Kohler has launched its 5400 Series single-cylinder engine line for lawn tractor applications in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. The engines, which debuted in the U.S. in 2017, replace the Kohler Courage single-cylinder engine line which is being retired.

The 5400 Series line includes models between 17 and 19.5 hp and features a new Triple-Balance System, which was specially designed to significantly reduce vibration, as well as Kohler’s Smart-Choke Technology, which allows users to start the engine without having to prime or choke the unit.

Kohler said, the engines are designed to bring easy starting and quiet, smooth operation to lawn tractors. “When it comes to lawn tractors, users want an engine that’s easy to start, smooth running, simple to maintain and built to last. Our 5400 Series more than delivers by incorporating a variety of user-friendly advancements,” said Brett Wegner, product manager for Kohler Engines. “When developing this line, we applied our expertise from Kohler’s robust twin-cylinder engines to design in many durable features and user benefits. Without question, the 5400 Series takes our single-cylinder offering for ride-on mowers to the next level.”

The 5400 Series incorporates also the company’s Consistent-Cut Technology, which helps to maintain engine speed in tough conditions for a cleaner turf cut. An inverted oil filter allows for dripless oil changes, while ergonomic quarter-turn knobs provide easy access to the air filter for quick, tool-free replacement. Each model within the 5400 Series is also backed by Kohler’s comprehensive three-year warranty.
