KOHLER, Wis. – October 18, 2017 – As part of its ongoing commitment to enhancing the mowing experience for commercial cutters, KOHLER has integrated an Electronic Throttle Body into its Command PRO EFI 999cc engine. The new technology electronically controls intake airflow – much like in automobile engines – to optimize power and load response. The Electronic Throttle Body is combined with Kohler’s proven Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system, as well as the latest engine cooling technology, in the updated Command PRO EFI 999cc to deliver a range of benefits, including quick and easy starting, excellent fuel economy, improved durability and enhanced response in challenging mowing conditions.
“I wish everyone who spends time on a mower could try this engine. You can really feel the difference in tall, wet grass,” said Eric Raquet, product manager for KOHLER Engines. “Our new Electronic Throttle Body brings some extra muscle to the table, and takes the Command PRO EFI 999cc to powerful heights of horsepower, torque and reliability.”
Ideal for commercial zero-turn radius (ZTR) mowers, the KOHLER Command PRO EFI 999cc is available in models between 35 and 38 hp. Durability and performance features are numerous and include large-capacity filters, high-performance spark plugs, hydraulic valve lifters, and a fully-integrated oil cooler. For added peace-of-mind, the engine is also backed by Kohler’s three-year commercial warranty.
“The new KOHLER Command PRO EFI 999cc with Electronic Throttle Body is another rock-solid option within our EFI lineup, which continues to be the most extensive in the industry,” Raquet added.
The basic mechanics and overall benefits of Kohler’s EFI technology are well known by many in the green industry. The company’s closed-loop system 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. Because EFI systems replace carburetors, carburetor-related issues and repairs are eliminated – including the buildup of damaging residue and carburetor corrosion that can occur when using ethanol-blended gasoline.

Kohler has continually enhanced its engines lineup over the years as part of the company’s longstanding commitment to help make life easier and more profitable for end users around the globe. Today, the company offers a full array of gasoline, diesel and gaseous-fueled engines – up to 134 hp. – which are supplied to equipment manufacturers worldwide in the lawn and garden, commercial and industrial, agricultural and construction markets.
