Kubota king for DPS Gessner proves a ripper
Since 1970, Diesel Parts and Service (DPS) has earned a reputation as a highlyrespected source of engines, generators and spare parts
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.
