806Re: Rescue Minor Kubota Diesel Source
- Sep 13, 2005Rob,
Yeah, we are alright down here. Actually Dennis was much worse than
Katrina in this section but we are still waiting our turn.
That engine was the D722E (called D722N then). Kubota is funny. They
have regional distributors who won't do business outside their
territory. Another man was inquiring into one and asked me to check
my distributor in NC and my price was higher than his in Fla. I
can't remember what it was but this was about three years ago and
maybe some $2,200 for the cheapest one. He finally searched around on
the internet and found some for less than $1500 so he bought two. It
was some surplus thing but the engines were identical to mine.
I think you just have to scratch around. The main thing is that a
basic engine is much cheaper than a marinized one.
