The beginnings of KOHLER® engines can be traced back to 1920 when the KOHLER Automatic Power and Light 1500-watt Model "A" generator set was introduced. Designed to serve rural markets, it delivered 110-volt DC current and was powered by a KOHLER four-cylinder water-cooled cast iron gasoline engine. Through the years their technology grew, and now provide power for home and garden products, to high speed diesels for the U.S. Navy. KOHLER engines have been battle-tested at the South Pole, Hoover Dam, WWII and victory lane. And today, they power the toughest equipment in the commercial world.
