Kubota Tractor Australia offers the New Super Mini Series (NSM) engines. Manufactured by one of the leading diesel engine manufacturers, these engines are part of the extensive range of Kubota’s diesel line up from 8.8hp (6.6kw) through to 99.2hp (74kw) and are suited to original equipment manufacturers (OEM’s). With an engine to satisfy multiple applications, Kubota customers include manufactures of mini loaders, marine generators, access equipment, pumps and air conditioning systems.
The 23.5hp D902 NSM has been specifically designed to surpass the next tier of the EPA emission levels without compromising output. In fact, a number of improvements have been incorporated into the new engine. These include a 16% increase in power density, reduced weight, enhanced reliability, smoother operation and a more compact size. Even the noise has been substantially reduced by the addition of a floating valve cover and coated pistons.
“As the world is demanding stricter environmental protection; engines are therefore required to meet stricter emission regulations”, according to Ian Dawson, National OEM account manager at Kubota Australia, Ian went on to say “We all want to live in a healthy environment so our engine product environmental management section at Kubota Corporation in Osaka Japan was established exclusively to work on environmental issues. They have been sourcing emission information from all over the world and disseminating it throughout the section - testing, analysing and retesting to meet and in some cases exceed the regulations. Kubota is taking all possible measures to ensure engines produced possess the high level of adaptability to pass future regulations and meet Kubota’s high quality standards”.
To assist OEM customers with development of their products, Kubota Australia and its Kubota Power Centre dealers, offer engine application testing. This ensures the engine is matched correctly with the product it is powering and does not compromise the engine with regard to emissions, output or the finished products’ reliability.
Kubota also has a range of air cooled and fan forced air and oil cooled diesel engines suitable for wide range of applications.
