The D1503-M engine complies with EPA Interim Tier 4 emissions regulations that are effective through the end of 2012. This engine also complies with EU Stage 3A requirements that are effective through 2012 and beyond in the European market.
The Kubota 03-M-Series is well recognized for industrial applications. With numerous features such as a built-in solenoid, low fan position and single side serviceability, this engine offers excellent performance characteristics and application flexibility.
The cooling water passages between the cylinder bores, using Kubota’s original casting technology as a countermeasure against heat load of high power density, provides both superior endurance and reliable engine characteristics.
The D1503-M engine offers a seamless transition from Tier 2 to Interim Tier 4 by maintaining the same footprint and hard mounting points with only slight performance changes from the Tier 2 engine.
Clean and Quiet Power
Kubota’s original E-TVCS (Three Vortex Combustion System) has been improved. The airflow, combustion chamber and piston recess were optimized to provide a 50 % lower particulate matter (PM) level, the same stringent level as above the 37kW class (EPA Interim Tier 4).
The half-float valve cover and MoS2 coated pistons lower noise levels by 1.0 – 2.0 dBA over conventional diesel engines and provide reduced transmitted vibration from the valve area for better noise characteristics.
The Kubota 03-M-Series engines offer side power take-off (PTO), in response to the trend of increasing hydraulic control devices in industrial machines. It is possible to install a hydraulic pump at two side PTO locations.
A great variety of additional accessories is available.
- RATED POWER 23.8 KW / 2800 RPM
- CYLINDERS 3
- COMBUSTION SYSTEM DIRECT INJECTION
