Two upgraded diesel generators are featured as part of Kubota’s latest catalogue release.

Kubota's upgraded generators, including the SQ series models, are available in its 2021 spring catalgoue

The two models – the GL Series compact diesel generator and SQ Series (super quiet) diesel generator – have been designed with new features and can be easily transported and maintained.

Kubota says the GL series is efficient and provides safe back up power as the 2021 summer storm season approaches.

"As we approach the season, it’s important to stock up on generators. Sadly, we’ve seen the full impact storms can have on power supplies and Kubota’s GL series ensures back-up electricity at the push of a button," Kubota spokesperson James Tibos says.

While boasting a generous fuel tank which allows for extended operation time between refuelling, the GL Series also offers improved fuel economy and reductions in both emissions and noise levels, Kubota says. 

With factory-fitted circuit breakers and residual current device, the GL Series benefits from a redesign, making single-side maintenance and servicing a possibility 

Designed with durability in mind, the SQ series generators offer operators a 24-hour operation time and the ability to withstand Australia's harsh conditions.

The new models have waterproof recessed button receptacles, as well as a new emergency stop button and RCDs for each outlet, as well as a battery isolator, a larger fuel tank and a limit switch that shuts down the engine when the door opens.

"The SQ Series is Kubota’s largest diesel generator and gives you incredible power that you can rely on, day in, day out. They are the perfect partner for any application where prime power is required and are ideal to help weather any storm," Tibos says.

Both the GL and the SQ seriese also feature Kubota’s Deep-Sea 4520 Start Controller which provides operator information in a back-lit, easy-to-read manner.

The generators are listed in Kubota’s 2021 Spring catalogue.
