October 2013

KOHLER, Wis. – October 23, 2013 – Kohler Engines is pleased to roll out its new 2000 Series model RH265 – a 6.5 hp, horizontal-shaft, air-cooled, gasoline engine, which is ideal for a variety of consumer applications such as pressure washers, log splitters, tillers, edgers, and other utility equipment. The lightweight and compact RH265 engine is ruggedly designed to help extend product life and incorporates several user-friendly features to provide straightforward, dependable operation.

“The KOHLER RH265 engine was developed to be an easy-to-use workhorse for consumers everywhere,” said Cam Litt, marketing manager for Kohler Engines. “Due to the engine’s durability, reliability, and flexible design, we anticipate this model being widely utilized in all retail channels.”

The overhead valve design of the RH265 engine helps prolong life and enhance fuel efficiency. The engine’s splash lubrication system helps ensure all internal parts are appropriately oiled. Usability features incorporated into the engine include an easy-pull ergonomic handle for more comfortable and effective starting, dual oil fills and drains so oil can be added or removed from either side of the engine, a larger fuel tank for longer run time, an enhanced muffler for quieter operation, and Kohler’s exclusive Accu-Fill™, which adds an oversized fuel tank opening as well as a fuel-level indicator inside of the tank to help prevent overfilling and spilling of gas.
