Kohler Ksd 1403 Tc Quarter

The Kohler KSD (Kohler Small Displacement) Series engine family offers a below-19 kW (25 hp) solution which complies with all global emissions standards and fuels.

  • Compatible with various machine types 
  • Can be easily integrated with more complex electronic systems of ever-evolving machines
  • Versatile design which allows integration without modifying or redeveloping machine
  • Allows customized settings for any duty cycle and the ability to exchange data with few physical connections
  • Range currently includes three engine models - KSD 1403NA (Naturally aspirated), KSD 1403TC (Turbocharged) and KSD 1403TCA (Turbocharged with aftercooler)
  • Additional modes expected in the near future
  • Features high low-end torque of 95 Nm (70.1 lb.-ft.) at 1,000 rpm
  • Provides peak torque at low speed of 120 Nm (88.5 lb.-ft.) at 1,400 rpm
  • Peak power output of 18.4 kW (24.7 hp) at 1,800 rpm
  • Multi-fuel solution enables use with diesel, gasoline and propane to meet varying customer requirements
  • Easily fits into existing telematic solutions
  • Electronically controlled but as simple to use as mechanical engines
  • Fuel system allows precise fuel metering and excellent load response
  • Use of durable components enable use in heavy-duty applications
  • Dual side service and full flexibility for fan position fits wide range of machines
  • Electronic controls maintain high performance at high altitude
  • Electronic control allows for integration of CANbus communication, TSC1 control, tailored error messages and remote diagnostics
  • Helps optimize fuel consumption by controlling machine hydraulics and engine load and speed
  • Enables prognostic, diagnostic, geolocation, remote monitoring and switchability for genset application, and offer a service interval of up to 500 hours, for both oil and fuel filters
  • Features state-of-the-art indirect injection system but has specific electronic management typical of direct injection
  • engines
  • Engine performance is maximized in every operating condition and environment
  • Indirect injection system offers limited speed droop as well as isochronous control if required, like in bigger displacement common-rail engines
  • Low-end torque allows operators to run equipment at lower rpm to save fuel
  • Electronic injection system results in no visible black smoke;
  • Minimizes noise and vibrations to ensure operator comfort
  • Piston ring design, dedicated in-house honing machining process, and specific crankcase ventilation system aids clean low oil consumption and avoids oil dilution as well as heavy soot oil
  • Includes Kohler Arctic Boost starter motor to start the engine easily when dealing with high parasitics in cold conditions
