Patented StormForce™ Design
LCT’s patented StormForce Series engines are designed to deliver maximum performance for sub-zero winter conditions with industrial grade components and uniquely designed features.

Overhead Valve (OHV) Design
OHV Technology delivers more power and improved efficiency by running smoother and cooler which results in longer engine life. OHV also improves fuel economy while reducing exhaust emissions and greenhouse gases.

Cast Iron Sleeve Bore
A cast iron sleeve reduces bore wear and extends the life of the engine while improving emissions and oil consumption over an extended run period.

Dual Ball Bearings
Industrial ball bearings reduce friction and wear for prolong engine life.
