Kubota to exhibit alternative drives at Agritechnica 2017


Kubota will be exhibiting its industrial engines with diesel and alternative drives at Agritechnica 2017, taking place in Hanover, Germany, from November 12-18.

In an age when diesel engines are getting increasingly complex and, in spite of costly exhaust gas aftertreatment, some machinery manufacturers are looking for alternative drives that can be inserted into existing machine concepts in a cost-effective manner.

To meet customers’ needs in this area, Kubota, a leading manufacturer of industrial engines, offers its comprehensive product range consisting of diesel, petrol, LPG or natural gas engines.

Kubota’s petrol engine versions are very much on a par with its diesel engine of the ‘same structure’ in terms of torque and performance, thanks to extensive technical interventions in the engines. For example, some diesel engines have four-valve technology, while the spark-ignited versions (petrol/LPG/natural gas) have a two-valve cylinder head which is designed for a particularly good performance and torque development.

As the industry transitions to EU emission Stage V, which will come into force in 2019, robust, cost-effective alternatives to diesel drives are becoming increasingly sought after.

Visit Kubota at Agritechnica where the company will be exhibiting its product range in the ‘Systems and components’ exhibition area in hall 16, at stand D53.
