Latest heavy-duty powerplant has new look and great features.
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Jan. 2020) Kawasaki’s EFI engines, recognized as industry workhorses consistently providing high performance power to numerous OEM applications, receives an infusion to its line-up with the new FX1000V EFI. A 38.5 HP SAE Certified engine, this unit brings the family to a total of five engines, providing the essential ingredients for commercial mowers and heavy-duty industrial and construction equipment. The FX1000V EFI joins the FS730V, FT730V, FX730V, and FX850V engines as the largest and most powerful option available.
Like all of Kawasaki’s EFI engines, this engine features an integrated electronic throttle control and boasts serious strength with three valves per cylinder, a commercial canister air filtration system, and magnetic clean-out ports for easy tool-less maintenance.
It even looks new—with a distinct design differentiating it from other Kawasaki units—featuring a uniquely designed rain cap cover and new hex-shaped screen guard.
“Kawasaki’s open-loop EFI system provides simple, efficient, reliable performance for the toughest of in-field operational requirements. The integrated electronic throttle control instantly adjusts engine power-to-load, for maximum cutting power at higher speeds, cleaner mowing in heavy turf, and fewer recuts. The high pressure returnless fuel system offers consistent fuel delivery and maintains smooth operation in high temperature conditions. And, economy and efficiency are heightened via Kawasaki’s multi-port sequential fuel injection, providing high-precision fuel delivery to maximize power-per-stroke, achieving more work with less fuel.
At the heart of the FX1000V EFI is Kawasaki’s ECU; the advanced electronic control unit is constantly monitoring ambient conditions and real-time engine performance to adjust as needed and deliver optimum power and efficiency, regardless of the mowing conditions.
The EFI system coordinates with OEM systems for seamless, efficient integration of controls, sensors, and displays. This blending of technical information provides advanced features to the end user.
