Kubota Z750A

Kubota Z750The Kubota Z750A is a 0.75 L (743 cc, 45.34 cu·in) straight-two, water-cooled naturally aspirated vertical diesel engine manufactured by Kubota for general-purpose applications.

A 76.0 mm (2.99 in) cylinder bore and 82.0 mm (3.23 in) piston stroke give the Kubota Z750A engine a total of 743 cc of displacement. The compression ratio rating is 21.0:1.

The Z750A diesel engine produced 17.3 PS (12.7 kW; 17.0 HP) at 2,800 rpm of output power.

The breakdown of the engine code is as follows:

  • Z – 2-cylinders
  • 750 – Approximate displacement 750 cc
