Kubota Tractor Australia has launched Kubota diesel engines which are technologically advanced in emission control and fuel efficiency. Kubota diesel engines continue to defy the argument that petrol engines are cheaper to run than diesel.
Dealing directly with the original equipment market (OEM) and through their dealer network Kubota Tractor Australia continues to promote the features and benefits of diesel power over petrol.
To prove this concept engineers of Kubota Tractor Australia set up a test. Assuming the average diesel engine life span is 8000 hours and the average petrol engine life span is 3000 hours, rigorous trials were conducted over periods of 1000, 2000, 3000 and 4000 hours. Factoring in an adjustment for the higher initial purchase price of a petrol engine, the tests revealed substantial operating cost savings in relation to servicing and fuel consumption.
These results are further enhanced by the fact there is no requirement to purchase a replacement diesel engine at 3000 hours as would be the case with a petrol engine.
Kubota diesel engines are built to last and are economical to run.
Kubota diesel engines are increasingly being purchased by major original equipment manufacturers as a replacement power source for petrol engines.
A recent example of this has been the development of the Sewer Jet drain clearing system. Developed and produced using advanced technology by AIM Equipment, the Sewer Jet incorporates diesel power
Utilising a Kubota D902-SAE 23.5hp at 3600rpm 3 cylinder water cooled diesel engine coupled with a Bertolini triplex pressure pump, makes the Sewer Jet a high quality, reliable drain cleaning system that is now more economical and reliable.
