May 4, 2023 | Diesel generator

Viking Industrial is thrilled to offer a range of Kubota engines in various sizes. Coupled with Stamford alternators, our Kubota diesel gensets offer unparalleled fuel efficiency and reliability that surpasses other generators in their class. We are excited to offer these top-of-the-line engines to our customers and provide them with a dependable and efficient source of power for industries Australia-wide.

Trusted by clients for a diverse range of applications, Kubota generator engines are used as a reliable and cost-effective back-up power source for off-grid businesses, as well as an on-site solution for mobile contractors and outdoor events. They are also ideal for large-scale civil and construction projects, and with minor aftermarket modifications, can be mine-ready too.

So, if you’re in the process of planning an upcoming project, a Kubota generator engine could be the ideal choice. To help you weigh it up, in this article we’re sharing seven key advantages of Kubota generator engines.

1. High fuel efficiency

Kubota generator engines are designed to be highly fuel-efficient, which means they can generate power for longer periods with less fuel consumption. Not only does this result in more cost-effective operation, it also minimises emissions, an important consideration as we all look for ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

2. Low noise 

If your site, project or event is situated in an area where excessive noise will cause issues, it’s essential you choose a generator that is suitable for use in noise-sensitive areas. Kubota engines are built with advanced noise reduction technology, ensuring they operate at low noise levels, which makes them an ideal choice. 

3. Durability 

Kubota generator engines are built to last, with robust components and materials that can withstand harsh conditions and heavy use. Opting for a durable genset is a smart choice as it delivers cost-efficiency in the long-term, and reduces the risk of downtime and headaches due to breakdowns.

4. Compact design 

If you’re working in a small area and need a compact genset solution, Kubota is a great choice. The engines are built with a compact design, which means they can fit into tight spaces. In addition, they are also easy to transport, which is a plus for businesses and contractors who are on the go, and need a reliable generator that can move with you.

5. Easy maintenance 

Kubota generator engines are designed for easy maintenance, with user-friendly components and access points that make servicing and repairs straightforward. This is another smart and cost-effective feature that can save you money and time over the journey.

6. Environmentally friendly

Designed to meet strict emissions standards, Kubota engines are a more environmentally friendly choice than many of their counterparts. They are also suitable for use in areas with strict emissions regulations, which is an important consideration for a growing number of projects.

7. Versatility 

Kubota generator engines come in a range of sizes and power outputs, making them suitable for a variety of applications. From residential backup power for solar and off-grid homes, to large-scale industrial use, there’s a size for almost every need, from 6kVA to 30kVA. 

A recent example of this versatility was seen in a made to order single-phase 15kVA Kubota genset for a client in the defence sector. To meet their requirements, we created a custom gland box and made adjustments to the controller to ensure compatibility with their telemetry and on-site BMS needs. The result is a machine that is reliable, efficient and capable of handling even the toughest tasks.
