JCB – one of the world’s top three manufacturers of construction equipment – uses a variety of Kohler direct injection (KDI) diesel engines in its equipment, including its popular and well-regarded lineup of compact excavators, and skid steer loaders.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to be recognized among the best suppliers by a highly respected partner like JCB North America,” said John Chowaniak, senior national accounts manager for Kohler Engines.
“Kohler works diligently to be a front-runner in diesel engine technology, and we’re humbled to be singled out by JCB for the consistent value we bring to the company and – by extension – to users of JCB compact equipment throughout North America,” Chowaniak said.
The Kohler direct injection (KDI) diesel engine line now includes eight models, all meeting the latest emission standards without a bulky and inefficient diesel particulate filter (DPF). The compact engines are designed to deliver optimal power and torque for the toughest jobs while also optimizing fuel consumption and limiting emissions.
