  • Engine question

    I am wondering if someone knows what year Miller started to use the Kohler engines in their welders? Also what models? Thank you in advance!!

      I have an opportunity to buy an engine drive for scrap price, but am not able to look at it until Monday morning . Just needs a new motor is all I have for specifics right now . I'm just getting a little excited that's leading to research.

        Kohler Engine Usage

        Perhaps the time frame for Kohler engine usage can be narrowed down by user posts of their purchase dates.

        I bought a new Miller Bobcat 225 in October 1999 and specified the Factory Propane Fuel Option with the Kohler Command Pro Engine..

        They were still using the Onan engines also in that time frame. They derated the 225 about 10% if ordered with the Onan engine and propane option, but with the Kohler engine, they went up to the next larger sized engine if the propane fuel option was specified so the 225 did not have to be derated.

        I might be wrong, but I don't think they had been using the Kohler Engine that long when I bought mine....
