The Tillotson brand has been trusted for over 100 years and is synonymous with professional quality, durability, power and performance. As we continue to innovate through technology and product advancements, we are excited to announce our new line of Tillotson® Paragon Series vertical shaft engines. Our overhead valve vertical shaft engines are available in 140cc, 173cc and 196cc displacements with either a recoil or electric start option. The engines are all equipped with our high performance TCT fuel system and offer customers improvements in power, torque and stability for ultimate performance and better cost alternatives. The patented TillotsonTCT technology delivers up to 10% more torque, a more stable power curve and lower emissions and noise levels.
The engines are produced in partnership with our sister company, T/CCI Manufacturing, a leader in heavy duty automotive manufacturing. T/CCI’s ISO-9001:2008 with Design, ISO14001 and TS016949 certification provides us with the highest standard automotive grade manufacturing capability which translates to a superior product and greater savings for our customers and our customer’s customer. Together, Tillotson and T/CCI dedicate ourselves to a collaborative philosophy with our customers that starts with engineering & application expertise, a fast, responsive support program and global logistics through our facilities in the US, Ireland, Argentina, China, Germany and Spain.
What makes our engines better? Two things: A better, fully integrated fuel system and higher quality manufacturing. Most mower engine manufacturers will tell you torque is critical to the performance of an engine, and that’s 100% correct, but what is really critical is what happens to torque as you put the engine under load. In most cases, you get a drop in rpm, as much as 25%. That’s the bogging down sound you hear as you go through heavy grass. Our TillotsonTCT fuel system virtually eliminates engine bog so you can maintain torque under even the heaviest load. You can see it in the drop curve, which shows how the rpm’s of our engine stay steady while others drop as the engine is put under load.
