Kohler propane engine designed to reduce emissions

March 18, 2020 By    

Kohler launched the Command PRO EFI propane engine (model PCV680LE). An addition to the company’s EFI lineup, the PCV680LE twin-cylinder, vertical-shaft engine significantly lowers exhaust emissions due to an integrated catalyst and optimized fueling, according to the company.

“Low-emission technology is important for the environment, as well as users, and our goal is to ensure that alternative-fuel engines perform as well or better than gasoline- or diesel-fueled products,” says Quinn Derby, marketing manager of gasoline engines. “We are continuously refining our products and developing new ones, as a way to continue to reduce emissions without sacrificing performance.”

An alternative to gasoline- and diesel-fueled engines, the PCV680LE 22-hp model is a cleaner-burning, more fuel-efficient alternative for commercial equipment. It saves significantly on fuel costs with less downtime for refueling, the company says. It also provides over 80 percent less exhaust emissions. Closed-loop EFI technology allows the PCV680LE to optimize performance by automatically adapting to operating conditions, Kohler adds.

EFI engines also offer automotive-like turnkey starting and eliminate carburetors and their associated maintenance.
