The Engine Division of Kawasaki
Motors Corp. U.S.A. (KMC) entered
2014 with a major shift in focus,
exiting the handheld power products
category in order to concentrate on
the brand’s growing general-purpose
engine business. With nine engine
families being produced, the company continues to rely on its ability to
quickly respond to market conditions
due to the flexibility of the Kawasaki
Motors Manufacturing Corp., U.S.A.
(KMM) facility in Maryville, Mo.
The 800,000 sq.ft. Maryville plant
surpassed the 8 million unit production mark in early 2014, its 25th year of
operations. The company often operates multiple shifts to satisfy needs of
the expanding list of OEM partners in
the turf, golf, and industrial markets
served by Kawasaki.
This year has also seen the company making short-block engine assemblies available for its FS and FX engine series units.

Last fall, Kohler introduced the
vertical-shaft, V-twin Confidant engines
in four models ranging from 19 to 25 hp.
(see January 2014 Diesel Progress).
The engines are designed for the needs
of commercial equipment users and
property owners. Both recoil and elec-tric-start options are available for a
variety of applications, including wide-area walk-behind and stand-on mowers, ZTRs and high-end garden tractors.
The Kohler Confidant design includes a cast-iron cylinder liner
designed to protect the engine in
extreme operating conditions, a dual-seal air filter to help keep out debris
and high-torque inertia drive started with extra-large output for quick,
reliable starting, the company said.
Each Confidant engine comes standard with full-pressure lubrication and
Kohler’s Pro Performance Filtration
package. The optional cyclonic air filter is a heavy-duty filter that provides
Kohler’s 7000 series
