New Horsepower Ratings for Small Engines
The new SAE J1940 standard requires all engines produced after and including October 1, 2013 must be within 95% of the declared rated power and torque as opposed to the old standard of 85%. SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) has also stated that the engine manufacturer must disclose the rpm for rating and with the GROSS (SAEJ1995) or NET (SAEJ1349) horsepower.
Note: Engine produced before October 1, 2013 are labeled and rated by the old standard.
In most cases the engine displacement (cc) has not changed. Example: Model CH740 with 725cc, before it was rated as 27hp and will now be rated as 25hp under the SAE J1940 standard. The engine has not changed, only how it’s rated under the new SAE J1940 standard.

In The News
As of October 1st, 2012 all Kohler Command Pro Series & Kohler Command Pro EFI engines are covered by a 3yr Kohler warranty.
Kohler introduces industry's First Flex-Fuel engine
and brings EFI to all COMMAND PRO and AEGIS TWINS as standard offering.
Closed-Loop EFI Engine Accepts All Ethanol Fuel Blends
Kohler Engines introduces another industry innovation - a closed-loop electronic fuel injection (EFI) engine with the flexibility to use all ethanol fuel blends, from E0 to E85. The new KOHLER Command PRO EFI FlexFuel E85 Engine offers end users an unmatched array of fueling options, which translates to significant savings at the pump.
Fuel efficient, cleaner burning engines will soon be the standard —not an option—on all KOHLER Command PRO and Aegis twin-cylinder engines. Kohler will begin rolling out the new EFI engines with the Command PRO 25, 27 and 29 hp models this summer. Over the next two years, Kohler will convert its entire Command PRO air-cooled and Aegis liquid-cooled engine, with both the EFI and flex-fuel technologies.
Depending on the application, end users can realize
a 17% to 28% efficiency savings
Kohler partnered with Delphi leading global supplier of mobile electronics and transportation systems to design this new flex-fuel EFI system with patent-pending technology that will offer significant fuel savings, improved performance and reduced emissions.
KOHLER flex-fuel EFI models will be available on 26 twin-cylinder models available ranging from 19-41 hp, and will operate efficiently and without excessive wear on the engine when E-85 or any other ethanol-fuel mix is used. An additional benefit of the new KOHLER flex-fuel EFI engines is instant load response. The KOHLER exclusive EFI system allows the engine to respond with peak KOHLER performance even in changing altitudes and load requirements, which in turn, operates at top efficiency Kohler also designed this new line of engines within the same footprint as its current Command PRO and Aegis models, so that OEMs can easily drop in the newest KOHLER engine without altering the end equipment design to accommodate the engine. This is accommodated by Kohler's exclusive self-contained EFI design, which features only one fuel line rather than an additional return fuel line with a special harness. The fuel module, electronic control unit and sensors are also all engine mounted.
The new standard in twin-cylinder engine performance.
Only KOHLER closed-loop EFI engines include an oxygen sensor that analyzes the air/fuel mixture in the exhaust. If the oxygen level strays from the ideal air/fuel mixture, the sensor triggers adjustments in the Electronic Control Unit (ECU). Only KOHLER closed-loop EFI engines “close the loop” between the air/fuel intake and the exhaust output to provide a constant stream of critical feedback – and optimal power and fuel economy. The closed-loop advantage also means that only KOHLER closed-loop EFI engines automatically adapt to load, weather, fuel and altitude changes.
Superior Fuel Economy
• Up to 25 percent fuel savings when compared to similar size carbureted engine
• Closed-loop, sequential fuel injection optimizes proper fuel mixture for the most efficient fuel consumption
• No-choke starting
• Consistent, reliable starts in all weather conditions and even after long-term storage
• No carburetor to get clogged up during periods of inactivity
Fastest Load Response
• Optimized fuel injector placement and intelligent sensor pack delivers fuel wherever and whenever there is a demand for power
Lowest Cost to Operate
• Requires less fuel than a carbureted engine to do the same job
• Less down time saves you both time and money
• Worldwide emissions compliance
• Designed to meet or exceed the stringent requirements of EPA, California and European regulatory agencies, without the use of expensive catalyst or air induction systems
Easy to Install
• Engineered to be a drop-in replacement for carbureted engines; allows for easy OEM installation
• All EFI components are mounted to the engine so no additional component installation is required
• Precise EFI engine management ensures optimal operating efficiency
• Pays for itself in increased reliability and decreased service time
