  Tokyo, February 1, 2016 - Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI) today announced that its Industrial Products Company has redesigned the flagship Subaru EX Series general-purpose engines. The new models will be showcased at World of Concrete, the world’s largest annual event dedicated to the concrete industries, which begins on February 2, 2016, in Las Vegas. In addition to a new exterior design, the new EX Series engines offer enhanced performance and gear reduction options to meet a wider range of customer needs. The start of sales is scheduled for April 2016. The EX Series started out with four models in 2001, followed by two more in 2007 for a total of six models. All engines in the series adopt overhead cam (OHC) technology, achieving superior performance and durability as well as environmental excellence. The proven durability has earned this series wide use in the construction machinery industry and in a variety of products from generators to pressure washers.   < New EX Series Key Enhancements >
