Kubota Z600-B

Kubota Z600-BThe Kubota Z600-B is a 0.6 L (570 cc, 34.78 cu·in) natural aspirated two-cylinders four-stroke liquid-cooled internal combustion vertical diesel engine, manufactured by Kubota for general-purpose applications.

A 72.0 mm (2.83 in) cylinder bore and 70.0 mm (2.76 in) piston stroke give the Z600-B engine a total of 570 cc of displacement. The compression ratio rating is 22.0:1.

The Z600-B engine produced 12.6 PS (9.3 kW; 12.5 HP) at 3,200 rpm of net (intermittent) horsepower, 14.1 PS (10.4 kW; 13.9 HP) at 3,200 rpm of gross (intermittent) horsepower and 32.9 N·m (3.4 kg·m, 24.2 ft·lb) at 2,000 rpm of maximum torque.

The Kubota Z600-B features:

  • Spherical type combustion chamber
  • Bosch K-type mini fuel injection pump
  • Bosch throttle type injection nozzle
  • Centrifugal ball mechanical governor
  • Forced lubrication by pump lubrication system
  • Liquid cooling system
