Kubota D905 Engine Specificationsby Chester Rockwell
The Kubota D905 is a diesel-powered industrial engine used in light machinery and construction equipment. Its small size makes it suitable for a number of applications, however its limited horsepower levels do not make it a practical motor for use in heavy machinery or motors which will be responsible for powering large payloads.
The D905 is powered by a three-cylinder engine, consuming diesel fuel, and using a inline layout with a respective bore and stroke of 72 mm and 73.6 mm. Its overall displacement is reported at 54.8 cubic inches, making it a relatively small engine. The engine's dry weight with its rear-end plate installed is 205 lb, which is raised to 242.5 lb when the flywheel and its housing are added.
As a relatively small motor, the D905 shows appropriate output levels. Kubota provides three output parameters, gross intermittent, net intermittent, and net continuous. The engine's net continuous power is rated at 17.4 horsepower at 3,000 rpm while its net intermittent power is rated at 20 horsepower at 3,000 rpm. Gross intermittent output is reported at 20.8 horsepower at 3,000 rpm.
Engine Size and Weight
The D905's size slightly varies depending on if the flywheel housing is installed or not. As most applications will include the engine's flywheel, the dimensions here assume one is installed. The engine's overall width measures in at 22.31 inches while its overall height measures in at 23.81 inches. The engine's total depth is 7.87 inches.
