The Kubota challenge, always at the

technological apex

Kubota, world leader in the manufacture of

compact, diesel engines, is also famous for

being the first company to have brought

emissions below 19 kW (25 HP) as stipulated

by the California Air Resource Board (CARB).

What makes Kubota different? The answer

lies in the four cornerstones that have

remained the same since 1922 when Kubota

produced its first engine: high performance,

energetic efficiency, savings in working time

and respect for humanity. Kubota’s objective

is not only to manufacture high performance

engines but to develop engines that are

environmentally friendly. This concept is

imprinted into every phase of the engine’s

development, from design to production to

delivery and after sales service. The advantage

of Kubota engines lies in their emissions, the

lowest around, and in their ability to satisfy

all the customer’s expectations. Kubota’s

objective for the 21st century is to become

the first producer of “clean” engines up to 70

kW (100 HP). There is no end to the research.

Kubota’s driving force, is and will always be an

innate passion for engines, which are possibly

the best.

The V3800 is the engine, which within the

Kubota range below 75 kW, offers the greatest

power. This engine doesn’t need electronic

control devices. It offers a lateral PTO as a

response to the increase in demand from the

hydraulic systems fitted in the machines. This

option opens up a wide range of applications.
