Stens Corporation announced March 6 that it will serve as the exclusive North American parts distributor for Liquid Combustion Technology (LCT). Stens will also manage LCT’s service network, including recruitment of new service centers and processing of all warranty claims.
LCT is a U.S.-owned-and-operated company with employees worldwide and more than 30 years of engine manufacturing experience. It is a full-service manufacturer of small engines, building them from the ground up, including concept, design, patent and engineering. Stens will initially offer 208-cc (6-hp.), 291-cc (8.5-hp.) and 414-cc (12-hp.) engines, as well as LCT parts. These general-replacement, horizontal-shaft engines are designed for use in a variety of outdoor power equipment, including generators, pressure washers, water pumps, compressors, blowers and tillers.
LCT controls the quality of its product by closely managing operations and working with OEMs to track issues through its quality systems. Warranty data shows that LCT has less than a 1-percent defect rate, which is equivalent to or better than industry leaders. LCT routinely performs emissions testing and has found that its engines meet EPA and CARB approval.
