Why Kubota’s D902-T engine is a perfect option for turf industry machines

May 07, 2020 | Engines

The hum of lawn mowers outside isn’t just a welcome reminder of warmer weather. It’s a reminder of the power needed to keep that equipment running efficiently and effectively.

Our D902-TE4 packs a lot of power into a compact premium package, making it the right choice for turf industry machines. Far lighter and more compact than comparable engines, the D902-TE4 has an output of 24.8 HP at 3200 rpm and a maximum torque of 53.2 lb-ft at 2400 rpm.

The high torque with the lower RPM produces minimal noise, making it an ideal option for the turf industry.

This lightweight engine is also well-suited for other applications, including utility vehicles, mini excavators, mini track loaders, trenchers and welders. The addition of a turbo-charger makes it a versatile and powerful engine especially useful for applications at high altitudes.

The D902-TE4 has the same engine footprint as its counterpart, the naturally aspirated D902-E4 mechanical engine. Like the D902-E4, the D902-TE4 also has a mechanical fuel injection system, so it fits right into its family of Kubota Super Minis.

“The new D902-TE4 engine has the same engine footprint as the D902-E4, allowing for easy machine integration,” said Chris Mottla, Kubota sales manager. “It does not require an after-treatment device such as a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), because it falls below the 25 HP threshold to meet Tier 4 Final emission regulations.”

Kubota is one of the first companies to offer both diesel and spark ignited counterpart engines. The engine complies with U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V.
