Kohler Command PRO CS6

Kohler Command PRO CS6The Kohler Command PRO CS6 is a 171 cc (10.44 cu·in) single-cylinder air-cooled four-stroke internal combustion gasoline engine from Command PRO series, manufactured by Kohler Co., for general-purpose applications, such as construction and industrial equipment, portable generators, commercial or residential lawn, and garden equipment.

The Kohler CS6 engine has an OHV (overhead valve) design, cast iron cylinder liners, aluminum block, steel-forged horizontal shaft, and dual main ball bearings. This engine is equipped with fixed jet Mikuni carburetor, electronic TCI (Transistor Controlled Ignition) system, mechanical governor and automatic compression release. The CS6 engine can be equipped with one of three air cleaner configurations: the standard dual-element air cleaner, heavy-duty cyclonic air cleaner (option), or an oiled, solid foam element (option).

Cylinder bore and piston stroke are 66.0 mm (2.6 in) and 50.0 mm (1.97 in), respectively. Compression ratio rating is 8.5:1. The Command PRO CS6 engine produced 6.1 PS (4.47 kW; 6.0 HP) at 3,600 rpm of horsepower and 10.8 N·m (1.1 kg·m, 8 ft·lb) at 2,000 rpm of torque.

The breakdown of the engine code is as follows:

  • C – Command series
  • S – Slanted cylinder
  • 6 – output power 6.0 HP
  • Suffix (engine is available with the following options):
    S – Electric starter;
    T – Retractable starter;
    G – Tapered crankshaft;
    P – Threaded crankshaft;
    R – Gear Reduction (2:1 or 6:1);
