Kohler offers the KDW 1003 combination diesel engine/transmission package with continuous variable transmission for powering off-highway utility vehicles. The KDW 1003 complete propulsion system combines automatic transmission simplicity and continuously variable ratio with an automotive gear box. Rated at 26.1 hp (19.5 kW), the three-cylinder, liquid-cooled diesel package offers a quiet power source for vehicles such as quads and snowmobiles as well as wheeled or tracked off-highway equipment. Able to keep engine rpm in its optimum power output range for all conditions, the KDW features improved fuel economy and stability as well as a compact size, allowing positioning between the four wheels. A minimal number of parts decreases maintenance, and the powertrain has a sealed compartment to extend belt life and prevent slippage. A gear box incorporates two forward gears and a reverse reduction gear for vehicles with two- or four-wheel-drive functionality.
