Kubota Engine America, Lincolnshire, Illinois, offers the newly developed D902-K, announced by Kubota Corporation’s president and representative director, Yuichi Kitao, as “Kubota’s first electronically controlled diesel engine below 19 kW.” The D902-K will bolster Kubota’s diesel engine line as it responds to various regional emission standards, including EPA Tier 4, Stage V, China IV standards and China’s Category III national smoke regulations, which will be implemented December 2022.
The new D902-K is a three-cylinder diesel engine with a displacement of 0.898 L and an output of 18.5 kW, and it consumes approximately 5% less fuel than its current conventional model. Tomokazu Matsushita, president of Kubota Engine America, said: “Kubota’s D902-K electronically controlled engine allows manufacturers to easily replace the existing engine without the need to redesign the current machine. It will match current dimensions, structures and power takeoff of existing engine.”
Mass production is scheduled to begin in 2022.
