Kubota Z600The Kubota Z600 is a 0.6 L (570 cc, 34.78 cu-in) straight-two, water-cooled naturally aspirated diesel engine from Kubota 70 mm series.

The Kubota Z600 engine has a spherical type сombustion сhamber with glow plug, Bosch K-type mini fuel injection pump, and Bosch throttle type injection nozzle. The compression ratio rating is 22.0. The cylinder bore and the piston stroke are 72.0 mm (2.83 in) and 70.0 mm (2.76 in), respectively. The Z600 diesel engine produced 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 torque.

The breakdown of the engine code is as follows:

  • Z – 2-cylinders
  • 6 – Approximate displacement 600 cc
