KOHLER® EFI Technology to be Highlighted on Hustler FasTrak Mowers

Press release date: Nov 03, 2017

7500 Series EFI engine brings enhancements to popular ZTR line for 2018 model year

KOHLER® is excited to announce the availability of it 7500 Series EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) engine on select models of Hustler® FasTrak® mowers beginning in the 2018 model year. The KOHLER 7500 Series EFI engine will extend several benefits to FasTrak users, including quick and easy starting, enhanced fuel efficiency, and relief from carburetor-related issues and repairs.

Widely utilized in today’s automobiles, EFI systems precisely meter fuel in the engine to optimize performance. KOHLER’s unique closed-loop EFI technology utilizes an oxygen sensor in the engine’s muffler, which continuously monitors the amount of fuel injected. If the fuel mixture strays from an ideal level, the sensor triggers adjustments to the amount of fuel injected into the system.

In addition to delivering optimal fuel efficiency, EFI technology provides improved power and enhanced reliability as well as turnkey starting. The KOHLER 7500 Series EFI engine allows users to Just Turn the Key and Go™ and also helps keep fuel fresh longer.* Because EFI systems replace carburetors, carburetor-related issues are also eliminated, including the buildup of damaging residue and corrosion that can occur when using ethanol-blended gasoline.

“We’re very excited to introduce a new fuel-injected engine option to our customers,” said Brad Unruh, director of product strategy for Hustler Turf Equipment. “The Kohler 7500 EFI engine for the Hustler FasTrak will deliver the added benefits these engines offer, including reduced fuel consumption, reduced emissions, and less servicing. Fuel injected engines are increasing in popularity and we feel this is the start of adding more engine choices to our residential line-up,” Unruh added.

The Hustler FasTrak is a premium residential Zero-Turn Radius (ZTR) mower. Several models are available within the line with a variety of features, including an incredibly-rugged frame and front forks, commercial-grade welded steel decks; commercial-grade transmissions; and premium bolstered internal-suspension seats.
