KOHLER, Wis. – Kohler Engines, a manufacturer and marketer of world class gas and diesel engines for lawn and garden, commercial, construction and agriculture markets since 1920, donated three engines and a lawn tractor powered by a KOHLER engine to the Gibbs family of West Union, Iowa. The family of six including Audrey who is legally blind, is the focal point of one of the last episodes of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," which aired Jan. 6.

“Kohler Co. has a long history of supporting the good works of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition,” said Justin Blount, director of marketing for Kohler Engines. “It is only fitting that Kohler Engines was able to aid the Gibbs family, whose children are also quite interested in engines and how they work.”

The three oldest sons –Josh, Nathan, and Thomas – are all engine enthusiasts. Kohler Engines donated a Kohler Courage XT, Kohler Command PRO Single Cylinder, and Kohler Courage V-Twin engines for the boys to “tinker” with at their leisure. The family also received a Craftsman 54-inch Garden Tractor powered by a 26-hp Kohler Command PRO engine to mow their more than two acres of land.
