New engines deliver class-leading features with performance optimized for Exmark machines.
With an eye toward delivering a better overall customer experience in a number of product lines, Exmark recently unveiled two new Exmark-branded engines. Developed specifically for Exmark zero-turn mower applications, the new single- and twin-cylinder engines offer a number of unique features designed to enhance performance, simplify maintenance and increase durability.
According to Exmark Director of Marketing, Daryn Walters, development of the new engines began more than four years ago, and prototype engines have been exhaustively tested for performance and durability on the dyno, in the laboratory and in the field.
“The Exmark engines have been refined and proven through extensive durability and field testing. We also tested the engines against similar engines from other manufacturers. Multiple comparison tests were made in heavy grass using identical mowers fitted with competitive engines.
“In all cases, performance of the Exmark engines was equal to or better than the other engines tested.”
Both Exmark engines feature overhead valve (OHV) designs to decrease fuel consumption and emissions and reduce engine operating temperature. Additionally, the engines are tuned for quicker, stronger governor response to deliver more power precisely when it’s needed. A wide power band gives operators the confidence to tackle challenging jobs without fear of stalling the engine.
Durability-enhancing features such as cast iron cylinder liners, oversized crankshaft bearings and triple-ring pistons increase the long-term durability of both engines. Exmark is so confident in the engines that it offers a three-year warranty on both, with parts and warranty support available from more than 1,500 Exmark dealers across the nation.
Exmark also includes a QR code on each engine, which allows for scanning with a smartphone or tablet to provide the user with maintenance and service information for the engine, as well as specifications and other information.
