Kohler Engines, a global engine manufacturer with over a century of global experience, has recently introduced its latest Bharat Stage V engines, expanding its lineup alongside the Euro Stage V engines. This new range comprises the KDI-TC 1903 engines in the 19 to 37 kW range, as well as the KDI-TCR 1903 and KDI-TCR 2504 engines in the 37 to 56 kW range, all part of the KDI engine family. Notably, these engines are equipped with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) designed to capture soot generated during combustion.

The incorporation of the DPF is a pivotal aspect of Kohler's KDI technology, and it has been comprehensively developed to offer a world-class experience to end users in any operating conditions, applications, and duty cycles. The KDI engines boast in-cylinder clean combustion, coupled with a smart regeneration strategy, providing a competitive advantage: this is crucial because a high accumulation of soot can negatively impact engine performance, increase fuel consumption, raise operating costs, and potentially impair the functionality of the machine.

Vincenzo Perrone, President of Kohler Engines, said, "The KDI Bharat Stage V engines conform to the latest emission standards and have been crafted based on the company's extensive expertise and R&D. The advanced technology featured in the KDI range ensures minimal soot accumulation, guaranteeing maximum productivity and efficiency in any operating condition." He further expressed confidence that these advanced Stage V engines would be swiftly embraced by the Indian Construction Equipment industry, given the industry's focus on enhanced productivity, uptime, and low total machine cost of ownership.

Looking ahead, Kohler has strategic plans to augment the localization ratio in its engines by initiating local production at its upcoming facility in Aurangabad, slated for commissioning by April 2025. This facility will be responsible for manufacturing engines with power ratings ranging from 50 to 75 HP.
