Field test­ing for 22 months in the U.S. and for 10 months in Aus­tralia has been ex­tremely pos­i­tive, with testers gen­uinely ex­cited about the en­gines.

The Australian Mining Review - - COMPANIES GEARING UP -


The new fam­ily of Kub­ota en­gines, mod­els WG2503 and WG3800, share many of the same com­po­nents found in the com­pany’s heavy-duty diesel coun­ter­parts. Known for their ex­treme dura­bil­ity, the new line was de­signed to en­dure harsh en­vi­ron­ments found in oil and gas fields.

“Pushed it to the max and came away sat­is­fied”.

“Su­per clean en­gine, easy to in­stall. All around, it’s go­ing to work for us”.

Com­pared to to­day’s com­mon au­to­mo­tive-based de­signs, the Kub­ota en­gines will pro­vide a much longer life cy­cle and of­fer many other ben­e­fits and pro­gram fea­tures for cus­tomers search­ing for a re­li­able so­lu­tion in the im­prov­ing oil and gas mar­ket.

“We are very happy with it. We are anx­ious to see them when they hit the mar­ket in quan­tity”.

Fea­tures in­clude: Three fuel op­tions – nat­u­ral gas, LPG or petrol. Front gear train with heavy-duty value tim­ing con­trol. Pre­mium en­gine valves with ro­bust cast iron cylin­der head. En­gine block and com­po­nents based on diesel model. State-of-the-art ig­ni­tion sys­tems. State-of-the-art fuel sys­tems with water re­sis­tant elec­tri­cal con­nec­tors. Knock sen­sors – de­tect det­o­na­tion, in­clud­ing coil-on-plug ig­ni­tion.

“Ef­fi­cient en­gine that burns a lot less gas. That leaves the gas com­pa­nies more to sell”.

“Tests have gone very well. The en­gines run smoothly, are re­li­able and the lads like work­ing with them”.

The new WG en­gines all are four­cylin­der, ver­ti­cal in­line, water-cooled con­fig­u­ra­tions, and are nat­u­rallyaspi­rated, with dis­place­ments of 2.49L for the WG2503, and 3.76L for the WG3800.

Net con­tin­u­ous out­puts on nat­u­ral gas/ com­mer­cial LPG for the WG2503 has out­puts of 43.3hp/47.3hp at 2700 rpm for the WG2503, while the WG3800 has out­puts of 65.8hp/70.8hp at 2600 rpm. Kub­ota’s war­ranty cov­ers the WG2503 and WG3800 for two years or 2000 hours on all well­head ap­pli­ca­tions.

Kub­ota also of­fer in­dus­trial diesel en­gine power packs and come fully as­sem­bled, com­plete with ra­di­a­tor, air cleaner, muf­fler, fuel fil­ter, en­gine feet, so when you re­ceive it there is no assem­bly re­quired.

The power packs com­po­nents have been de­signed to with­stand Aus­tralia’s harsh con­di­tions, so you know your Kub­ota will be up to any task.

Kub­ota in­dus­trial diesel power packs are avail­able in six pre­assem­bled mod­els and all en­gine as­sem­blies are idea for pump en­gine power units, hy­draulic power packs or any ap­pli­ca­tion where a full en­gine unit is re­quired.
