Lombardini / Kohler ‘s KDI2504TCR Common rail Tier 4 Final compliant engine was awarded “Diesel Engine of the Year” award 2012, at the recent “Intermat” exhibition in Paris.
The Kohler KDI 2504TCR has earned the Diesel Engine of the Year award for 2012 because it succeeded in overcoming the obstacle of the Tier 4 Final/Stage IIIB standard in a totally original way. In a market monopolized by particle filter solutions, the Kohler group came up with an innovative answer that offers low maintenance costs and superior reliability, without the need for an additional Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). OEMs that build compact machines may have serious problems in accommodating a bulky and costly DPF, and in addition there can be ongoing issues with service and maintenance.
With its 55 Kw of power and 300 Nm of maximum torque, the Kohler KDI2504TCR is the best in class in the segment of 2.5 liter, 4-cylinder industrial engines.
The DIESEL OF THE YEAR award is given to the year’s most technically innovative diesel engine. The award was introduced in 1986 by DIESEL magazine
