Kubota powers into new class of engine with 300 hp S7509
Kubota Engine America is moving into a new engine class with the launch of its 300 horsepower S7509. The manufacturer showed off the upcoming large displacement industrial diesel engine at Conexpo 2020.
“Kubota integrates state-of-the-art design to produce high performance and durability in all of our engines and the S7509 will be no exception,” Tomokazu Matsushita, president of Kubota Engine America, said in a release. “The S7509 will further expand the 09 series and Kubota’s goal is to become the number one supplier of engines up to 300 HP.”
Mass production of the new S7509 is not slated to start until 2023, but Kubota said the compact 7.5 litre, 6-cylinder engine will possess low fuel consumption with a direct injection combustion system. Among other attributes, the engine is designed for versatility, with the exhaust side auxiliary PTO taking up to two hydraulic pumps in addition to the intake side PTO.
