Economical 4-Stroke Engine

ch-1000

CH1000 Kohler Command Pro 4-stroke Engine

The air-cooled V-twin CH1000 40 hp offers high torque characteristics at low rpm, making this 4-stroke engine ideal for driving the variable forward/reverse pitch propeller.

Engine Type

This v-twin cylinder, air-cooled, horizontal-shaft engine is built to last. OHV, cast iron cylinder liners, and aluminum block construction make the 4-cycle, gasoline-powered Command PRO® ready for the long haul.

High Power Performance

Overhead valve technology provides greater volumetric efficiency and a higher compression ratio. This produces more power, improved fuel economy and cooling and reduces oil consumption. In addition, there is virtually no carbon buildup, reducing overall maintenance costs. The variable speed, mechanical governor promises smooth performance, regardless of application or fluctuating demands for power.

Durable, Long Life Design

Hydraulic valve lifters are oil pressurized, ensuring that push rods stay in constant contact with the rocker arms. Requiring no adjustment, the valve train is virtually maintenance-free. In addition, full-pressure lubrication delivers continuous lube to critical engine components, and integrated oil cooler is mounted under the cylinder cover for a compact engine profile and superior cooling. Large capacity, in-line fuel filter provides extra protection against dirt particles that can clog fuel lines.

Durable, Long Life Design

Hydraulic valve lifters are oil pressurized, ensuring that push rods stay in constant contact with the rocker arms. Requiring no adjustment, the valve train is virtually maintenance-free. In addition, full-pressure lubrication delivers continuous lube to critical engine components, even at 25-degree angle of operation and optional oil cooler regulates the oil temperature extending oil-change intervals. Large capacity, in-line fuel filter provides extra protection against dirt particles that can clog fuel lines.

The variable speed, mechanical governor promises smooth performance, regardless of application or fluctuating demands for power.

Features

Easy Dependable Starts

  • Optimized fuel injector placement and intelligent sensor pack deliver fuel wherever and whenever there is a demand for power
  • No-choke starting even in cold weather, when engine is hot or after long periods of storage
  • Less downtime and less maintenance for the life of the engine
  • No messy, gummed-up carburetor to clean or adjust
  • Kohler Command PRO® electronic ignition system generates a stronger spark at low cranking speed

Increased Efficiency

  • Capable of saving up to 25% in fuel over similar-size carbureted engines
  • Advanced oxygen sensor analyzes the exhaust’s air/fuel mixture
  • Upon analysis, the oxygen sensor adjusts the air/fuel mixture for optimum fuel efficiency
  • On top of the savings, you’ll also refuel less, increasing your overall efficiency
