KOHLER, Wis. – Oct. 9, 2012 – Construction professionals nationwide have voted and the results are now in. TheKDI Diesel Engine line from Kohler® Engines has been named among the Top 50 Most Innovative Products of 2012. The distinction was recently awarded by the readers of Equipment Today, a leading trade publication for professionals in the commercial construction market who are responsible for equipment selection, maintenance, safety and purchase.

The KDI Diesel Engine line from Kohler Engines is a Tier 4 Final emission compliant line of engines developed in conjunction with Italy-based Lombardini, a KOHLER Company.

“It’s always rewarding to be named among the most innovative products of the year,” said Justin Blount, director of marketing for Kohler Engines. “But, this recognition is especially nice because it was voted upon by construction industry insiders – the same people who depend on Kohler Engines to make their jobs easier and more cost efficient day after day.”
