KOHLER 7000 Series PRO Engine Brings Commercial Pedigree to Consumer Lawn Mowers

KOHLER, Wis. – October 19, 2016  The 7000 Series engine from KOHLER® Engines, which was developed based on the company’s Command PRO® commercial engine design, has just been enhanced with the addition of a new model – the 7000 Series PRO. The 7000 Series PRO engine offers features previously available only to commercial cutters, including a professional-grade cylindrical air filter. The new air filter, which helps to keep dirt and debris out of the engine while also enhancing service intervals, is more than double the size of the filters used on the other engines in Kohler’s 7000 Series. Additional end-user benefits include a three-year consumer/one-year commercial warranty, upgradable oil and fuel filters, and Kohler’s exclusive Consistent-Cut technology, which helps to maintain engine speed in tough mowing conditions for a cleaner, better-looking turf cut.

“We’ve combined our new 7000 Series PRO with our original 7000 Series and our 7000 Series HD models to form one of our most durable engine lines that’s readily available to consumers,” said Eric Hudak, marketing manager for KOHLER Engines. “Without question, this line promises to deliver advanced dependability to consumers looking to benefit from professional-grade performance.” 

The KOHLER 7000 Series PRO will be available on 2017 model year mowers, including the legendary Raptor® SD from Hustler. This heavy-duty, high-performance zero-turn mower is built to commercial standards and features deeper mowing decks up to 60,” heavy-duty front caster forks, durable 20” drive tires, exclusive SmoothTrak steering, and more.
