Kubota, the world's leading manufacturer of compact Diesel engines, is also famous for being the first to meet the emissions standards for engines under 19 kW (25 HP) enforced by the California Air Resource Board (CARB). What makes Kubota different? The answer is in the four fundamentals that have never changed since 1922, when Kubota built its first engine: excellent performances, energy efficiency, labour-saving and respect for humanity. The aim Kubota pursues today is no longer simply to build high-performance engines, but to develop engines that will be friends to the environment and people. This concept is central to every stage of an engine's development, from conception to design, manufacturing and delivery, through to after-sales service. Kubota engines' strength lies in their emissions, which are the lowest, and their ability to satisfy all the demands a customer can make on an engine. The aim Kubota has set itself for the 21st century is to become the world's top producer of engines up to 75 kW (100 HP).

There is no end to its research. Kubota's challenge has been, and will always remain, its innate passion for engines, preferably the best. The V3800 is highest-powered engine in the Kubota range below 75 kW. This engine does not need any electronic control devices. It has a side PTO to meet the growing demand for hydraulic control systems installed on machines. This option opens out an exceedingly vast range of applications.
