New Engine Packs Compact Power for the Turf & High-Altitude Applications

Jul 17, 2019 | Engines

Kubota’s newest engine, the D902-T-E4, proves it’s possible to pack a lot of power into a compact premium package. The D902-T-E4 will make its debut October 17-19 in booth #2084 at the 2018 Green Industry and Equipment Expo (GIE) in Louisville, Kentucky, allowing expo attendees the first look at Kubota’s newest offering.

The D902-T-E4 is far lighter and more compact than comparable engines, offering an output of 18.5 kW at 2800 rpm and a maximum torque of 72.2 Nm at 2400 rpm. This light-weight, high-torque engine is designed for use in the turf industry as well as applications including utility vehicles, mini excavators, mini-track loaders, trenchers and welders. The high torque with the lower RPM produces minimal noise, making it an ideal option for the turf industry.

The addition of a turbo-charger makes it a versatile and powerful engine especially useful for applications at high altitudes.

The D902-T-E4 has the same engine footprint as its counterpart, the naturally aspirated D902-E4 mechanical engine. Like the D902-E4, the D902-T-E4 also has a mechanical fuel injection system, so it fits right into its family of Kubota Super Minis.

“The new D902-T-E4 engine has the same engine footprint as the D902-E4, allowing for easy machine integration,” said Chris Mottla, Kubota Regional Sales Manager. “It does not require an after-treatment device such as a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), because it falls below the 19 kW threshold to meet Tier 4 Final emission regulations.” 

The engine complies with U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V.

Kubota will also introduce the V1505-CR-T engine to the U.S. market at GIE. The V1505-CR-T, which was unveiled at the INTERMAT show in Paris earlier this year, is a vertical, water-cooled 4-cylinder, turbo-charged diesel engine. It can achieve a rated output of 33.0 kW at a speed of 3000 rpm with a maximum torque of 118.5 Nm at 2000 rpm.

Kubota is one of the first companies to offer both diesel and spark ignited counterpart engines. The spark ignited counterpart engines to the D902-T-E4 and V1505-CR-T models – the WG972 and WG1605 models – will also be on display at GIE.
