KOHLER Unveils Aegis Engine with EFI Technology

KOHLER, Wis. – October 19, 2016  KOHLER® Engines continues to expand its line of Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI) engines with the launch of the newly modified Aegis® EFI engine. The liquid-cooled engine, designed for use in utility vehicles, lawn and garden equipment, heavy-duty construction equipment and other applications, now features Kohler’s latest EFI technology for optimal fuel efficiency, improved power and enhanced reliability. The Aegis engine joins an extensive line of over 30 EFI models, which has continued to grow since Kohler pioneered the company’s first EFI twin-cylinder engine in 1996.

“Combining the liquid cooling capabilities of the Aegis with Kohler’s latest EFI technology creates a stronger, more reliable engine that offers optimized performance,” said William Schnell, senior product manager. “The new Aegis EFI is an ideal choice for those demanding applications that require peak efficiency, reliability and performance.”

Built to last, the KOHLER Aegis EFI’s liquid-cooling system helps maintain consistent running temperatures while keeping oil cool, limiting engine wear-and-tear. The engine’s new EFI technology comes equipped with advanced sensors, which monitor engine running conditions and environmental factors to optimize engine performance. EFI technology replaces carburetors, eliminating the need for carburetor-related maintenance and costly downtime. EFI also offers easy, automotive-like starting for reliable and consistent performance, job-after-job.

The KOHLER Aegis EFI is a V-Twin, horizontal shaft, gasoline engine available in a 30 hp. model. For more information about the new engine, visit www.KohlerEngines.com.  

About EFI Technology

Widely utilized in today’s automobiles, electronic fuel injected (EFI) systems precisely meter fuel in the engine to optimize performance. Kohler’s EFI technology utilizes an oxygen sensor in the engine’s muffler, which continuously monitors the amount of fuel injected. If the fuel mixture strays from an ideal level, the sensor triggers adjustments to the amount of fuel injected into the system. In addition to delivering optimal fuel efficiency and turnkey starting, the technology also provides improved power and enhanced reliability.
