LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. (April 6, 2021) – Kubota Engine America is proud to offer the newly developed D902-K, announced by Kubota Corporation’s President and Representative Director, Yuichi Kitao.  “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 in December 2022.

The new D902-K is a 3 cylinder diesel engine with a displacement of 0.898 L and an output of 18.5 kW.  “As an industry leader, Kubota continues to meet the diverse engine needs of equipment manufacturers from around the world,” 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.”

Equipped with a one-of-a-kind common rail system developed exclusively for small engines, the electronically controlled D902-K comes with a new TVCR combustion system. The result is an engine that is compact, easy to mount and reduces the amount of black smoke to an undetectable level.

In addition to the suppression of black smoke, the D902-K consumes approximately 5 percent less fuel than its current conventional model. The D902-K is capable of communicating via the Controller Area Network (CAN), which allows engine speed and torque to be controlled using signals from the vehicle and can also acquire engine operating data for telematics purposes.

Mass production is scheduled to begin in 2022. You can download the D902-K brochure here.  For additional information, please visit the Kubota Global Engine website
