The Engines and Power Products Division of Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. exemplifies the ongoing commitments of the brand to provide the ultimate combination of performance and reliability for any application. Since its first motorcycle was sold in the U.S. in 1966, Kawasaki has built an enviable reputation in a number of categories that touch the lives of so many Americans.
Creating products both for leisure-time and work, Kawasaki has successfully melded its engineering expertise to categories where power and dependability are at the top of every user’s wish list. Having recently surpassed the seven million mark in engine production at its Maryville, Mo. facility, Kawasaki is answering the call of the lawn and garden industry, as well as industrial and golf vehicle manufacturers.
As one of the largest employers in the area, the Maryville operation also includes an advanced Research and Development Center that is continually investigating ways to build new products that simplify tasks for users, and keep our environment clean for future generations.
Kawasaki’s engines—and their broad acceptance in so many areas—reflect the level of design and technology that is built into every unit that comes off the production line. They have become The Critical Component for so many professionals. The company recently went further than any other brand to provide the most accurate power ratings in the industry, with the introduction of Critical Power ratings that now see engines power-rated to a tighter, automotive-caliber specification.
With a growing list of handheld power products that populate its string trimmer, edger, hedge trimmer and clipper, backpack and handheld blower, and multi-task power series, Kawasaki has become the brand that professional landscapers turn to for assurance—both in the field and when contacting any of the more than 8,000 retailers. The company’s popular Leading Edge Warranty covers most of these for five years of consumer or two years of commercial application.
Motorcycles, Jet Ski® personal watercraft, all-terrain vehicles, MULE™ utility vehicles, Teryx® Side X Side, or high-powered trains, airplanes, and sophisticated gas turbine plants—the Kawasaki brand has always been associated with the advancements in engine building that set the standards for many industries.
The company’s Engines and Power Products Division continues that heritage with its leadership positioning in an industry that puts a premium on the perfect blend of performance and reliability.
