Kubota Engine Dealer Offers Cost-Saving Solutions

Scott Schlabach, General Manager of Country Sales and Service LLC, offers cost-saving solutions to equipment owners especially when it comes to maintaining older equipment.

We have a variety of stock replacement engines. If we can match it, we've got it. If not, we have it in a re-manufactured engine.

As a result of final tier 4 regulations taking effect plus the recent changes to Kubota’s replacement engine standards, new engine costs are on the rise and many engine models will no longer be available. “We're seeing the price for some new engines double depending on the engine package plus many popular models are no longer available from the manufacturer,” says Scott Schlabach. “In most cases, equipment owners now pay a core charge and must return their old engine to be destroyed if they want to purchase a new Kubota industrial replacement engine. In other words, an industrial replacement Kubota engine can only be used to replace another Kubota engine.”

Equipment owners are faced with the challenge of knowing what their options are and how to go about choosing the best one. So when does it make sense to repair or replace an engine? Which is the best option, a new replacement engine or a re-manufactured engine? “With some applications, owners have no choice but to get a new replacement engine or to purchase a rebuilt engine of same, make and model especially if it fits a specialty application that requires a certain amount of available space for the engine,” says Scott Schlabach. "One of the biggest advantages of choosing a rebuilt engine is faster turnaround time resulting in more up time."

Scott Schlabach goes on to address equipment owners who have older machines. “If a customer’s machine is 10-15 years old, in most cases, the machine is definitely worth repairing. However, if the machine has a bunch of hours on it and has been subjected to a harsh environment, it may not be worth repairing. Instead, replacing the equipment may make sense in this situation. We can offer our customers many different options to keep their older equipment well maintained thus extending the equipment’s life.”
