This Kohler KD440 air-cooled, single-cylinder diesel engine is designed to provide reliable performance in tough conditions, while also delivering reduced maintenance costs and increased ease-of-use for operators. The engine will be utilized primarily in the plate compactor market—where it is designed to stand up to extreme dust and vibration. Kohler says it is also ideal for many other applications where durability is needed, including portable generators, pressure washers and tillers.
