A reliable power supply is critical on any job site. That’s why Kohler Co. has launched a new line of portable generators designed to deliver instant power virtually anywhere. The full line from Kohler includes nine models, ranging from a 2.0 kW inverter to a 12.3 kW gasoline generator, plus four portable water and trash pumps in varying diameters. Each fuel-efficient option will deliver clean power — safe for even the most sophisticated electronics — for building contractors and other construction professionals who depend on portable power for their tools and other electronic equipment.

“Our new portable generators and pumps are tough enough for any job, anywhere,” said Manny Rumao, senior product manager of Kohler. “We’ve listened to our customers and have integrated a variety of features that make these generators incredibly intuitive and easy-to-use. Contractors have responded favorably to the unmatched level of customization and the availability of an all-new family of portables available from Kohler, a company manufacturing power generators for nearly 100 years for hospitals, airports and golf events alike.”

The smallest of the new portable generators — the Kohler PRO2.0iS — is one of the lightest 2 kW models available to construction pros. It includes an intelligent sensor that monitors power demand and varies engine speed, which helps to save fuel, reduce noise levels, and minimize exhaust gases. To help extend engine life, an Oil Sentry feature also is integrated, which automatically powers the engine down in low-oil conditions.

The largest in the line, the Kohler PRO12.3EFI gasoline generator, features the popular commercial-grade Kohler Command PRO EFI engine. This closed-loop electronic fuel injection technology, used in cars and trucks, can help users save $1 on fuel for every hour of operation, according to the manufacturer.

The PRO5.4DES is powered by the Kohler Command PRO diesel engine, which delivers professional-grade performance within a sound-dampening enclosure for surprisingly quiet operation.

The 5.2 kW and up models feature the Kohler Accu-Fill feature, which makes filling the fuel tank easier and minimizes the likelihood of spillage, and an on-unit maintenance reminder to indicate when oil and air-filter changes are needed, eliminating the need for maintenance logs. They also are uniquely designed with customizable features so contractors can create a portable package to fit their specific usage needs. This eliminates having to pay for unneeded features simply because they’re included in a pre-assembled package. Seven accessory kits are available, providing more than 100 custom configurations. Options include an auto-locking hand truck handle kit, a wheelbarrow handle kit, a lifting kit, a cord management kit, and more.

“No other portable generator manufacturer offers this level of customization,” Rumao said. “The unmatched variety of accessories allows users to build the generator they want. Most options can even be switched out between different Kohler portable generators, offering greater overall value and extreme on-the-job versatility.”

In addition to portable generators, the new family of Kohler products also includes four trash and water pump models in varying sizes and flow rates. All pumps feature a 360-degree roll cage for extra protection, and many of the units integrate Kohler’s Quad-Clean air filtration featuring a 4-stage heavy-duty cyclonic air filter, which traps fine contaminants to maximize power and prolong engine life.

All Kohler portable generators include a three-year professional warranty.
