Kub­ota king for DPS Gess­ner proves a rip­per

Diesel Parts and Ser­vice (DPS) is Bris­bane’s num­ber one Kub­ota sup­plier, of­fer­ing the com­plete range of diesel en­gines and gen­er­a­tors from the Ja­pa­nese brand.

While the fam­ily-run Bris­bane busi­ness sup­plies prod­ucts from Perkins, Deutz, Cum­mins, Hatz, Yan­mar and Kohler, to name a few, man­ager Paul Brown says Kub­ota is king.

But not all of the new Kub­ota en­gines they sell leave in a new ma­chine, with many cus­tomers from the agri­cul­ture and con­struc­tion in­dus­tries keen on re­pow­er­ing an ex­ist­ing ma­chines in­stead.

“This is ba­si­cally be­cause of the re­li­a­bil­ity of their en­gines,”

Brown says. “The farm­ers who buy them just keep com­ing back.”

“And the price of a new Kub­ota M7 could be around $200,000, whereas its engine is around the $20,000 mark,” Brown adds.

“So, for a tenth of the cost you have a brand-new engine.”

Kub­ota carry about 140 dif­fer­ent en­gines to suit their own ma­chines, which DPS bring in on a sup­ply and de­mand model. These en­gines can power al­most any­thing, from Kub­ota rough ter­rain ve­hi­cles, to their ex­ten­sive trac­tor range.

Brown says DPS’s high­est-pow­ered Kub­ota engine of­fer­ing is a 86hp (64kW) unit, but adds that the com­pany has worked hard to gain at­ten­tion in the higher horse­power range, with even big­ger units on the way.

With such a va­ri­ety on of­fer, Brown and his 23-strong team at DPS use the com­pany’s 48 years of ex­pe­ri­ence to be your first point of call when look­ing for a re­power engine.

“Whether you’re look­ing to re­power your ma­chine or up­grad­ing an ex­ist­ing ap­pli­ca­tion, our renowned re­li­a­bil­ity and per­for­mance cou­pled with our ex­pert knowl­edge of the prod­uct range en­ables us to de­liver the right engine with the right ad­vice to meet your de­mands,” he says.
