Why KOHLER ® Generators?

Glad you asked.

We have a saying around here: “You can trust a KOHLER generator for good reasons.”

Here’s why…



A KOHLER generator circa 1922

We’re over 100 and only getting better with age.

We built our first generator in 1920. Since then we’ve had one simple goal: build the best generators in the world.

We eat, sleep and breathe quality.

Every KOHLER ® generator is meticulously quality-tested start to finish. First, our engineering team runs test after test during our design process. Everything’s examined — down to the bolt.

Once the generator design passes our inspection, it’s ready for production. But before it leaves our factory, we put it through the paces one more time. The result is total reliability.

We offer custom options
— and lots of them.

Legs, handles, wheels, lifting kits. Our custom options allow you
to build whatever generator you want, any way you want it.


We provide a FREE loaner program.
Yeah, FREE.

If pigs fly and your KOHLER generator ever goes down, just swing by one of our select dealers. We’ll provide a free loaner unit for warranty repairs exceeding 24 hours.*

*At participating dealers, based on availability.
