Kubota have introduced the new 5-litre engine “V5009” at Conexpo 2017.
Mass production will start from 2020, and the engineering support work starts before to match the application. This engine will be supplied to manufacturer for construction and industrial machines.
As the awareness for the conservation of the global environment has increased, emission standards for industrial engines have become more stringent. All industrial machinery manufacturers are now required to build their machine with emission certified engines, or to adopt after treatment device in regard to the required emission level. Kubota has taken measures to comply with the various needs from those manufacturers, to become top chosen under 100hp and decided to enforce and expand the line up to 200hp class.
Kubota has been developing the engine that meets the latest emission regulation in United States, Europe and Japan. Kubota has started development and production of engines with the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) before others, which is necessary technology to comply with the most stringent requirement, EU Stage V regulation. V5009 will be ready for the new emission EU Stage V regulation that starts from 2019/2020, which limits particulate numbers.
