Kawasaki, most famously known for its manufacture of motorcycles, has been a key player in the stationary engine market for over 50 years. Stationary engines are generally used to power immobile equipment such as power tools or pumps. Kawasaki released their first stationary engine in 1957, and today manufacture two-stroke and four-stroke petrol stationary engines. Kawasaki Heavy Industries is a Japanese corporation which manufactures ships, industrial plants, ATVs, motorcycles and aircraft parts.
Kawasakis offers four different ranges of four-stroke horizontal stationary engines: the FJ Series, the FE Series, the FH Series and the FD Series. These engines can produce up to 29 horsepower.
The FJ engine is a forced-air-cooled, four-stroke, horizontal-shaft, OHV gasoline engine. It has a displacement of 5.97 cubic inches, and a maximum power output of 3hp.
In contrast, the FD750D of the FD series is a liquid-cooled, four-stroke, horizontal shaft, OHV gasoline engine. It has twin cylinders, a displacement of 45.5 cubic inches and a power output of 27hp.
Kawasaki's four-stroke vertical range of stationary engines are equipped with single or twin cylinders, and can output between five and 37 horsepower.
The FJ151V STD, at the lower end of the specifications scale, has an air-cooled, OHV, single-cylinder, vertical PTO, which is designed to output five hp.
On the other end of the scale, the FX1000V is a powerful vertical shaft, four-stroke, air-cooled, OHV stationary engine, which is able to output 37hp at 3,600rpm.
Kawasaki offers a range of two-stroke horizontal stationary engines, which includes the TJ Series, the TH series and the TK series.
The TJ27E has a forced-air-cooled, two-stroke, gasoline, stationary engine. It has a displacement of 1.7 cubic inches, and a max power output of 1.2hp at 7,500rpm.
The more powerful TK65 has a forced-air-cooled, horizontal-shaft, gasoline, stationary engine. It has a displacement of 4 cubic inches, and a power output of 4.6hp at 7,500rpm.
Kawasaki's only two-stroke vertical stationary engine, the TH23 V, is a forced-air-cooled, two-stroke, vertical shaft, gasoline stationary engine. It has a displacement of 1.4 cubic inches, a bore and stroke of 1.26 inches by 1.10 inches and a max power output of 1.3hp at 7000rpm.
