Hi,

 

I had purchased a used Kubota D600 diesel from a Steiner mower for a repower project that I was contemplating-Economy/Power King tractor. I have since sold the candidate tractor and would like to sell the engine along with a new radiator that I had purchased for the project.

The enigne is a 3 cylinder water cooled Kubota D600 diesel that is rated at 15 hp.

It seems to start and run well, but I purchased it after it had been pulled from the Steiner

as it was being repurposed. As a minimum it will need a new oil pan gasket.

The radiator is a brand new unit.

 

The engine is complete with starter, alternator, flywheel  and is runable in my shop for a short time.

There is no air filter or fuel filter.

 

I am located in east central Indiana.

 

I am asking $400 for the engine with radiator. I will be posting on Indianapolis Craigslist soon.

 

Chuck

Hi,
I do not know the hours on the engine.
But, I have asked the guy I bought it from if the Steiner had an hour meter.
I have not heard back from him.
Thanks for your interest.
Chuck

Hi,

The hours are unknown for this engine as the Steiner did not have an hour meter.

   I'm finding hours and hour meters can easily mean nothing. On most of the tractors if the key is left on the hours add up in a hurry. More than hours is how is the engine running when you purchase it. Some engines with 2000 hours that have not been maintained are junk. Others with 5000 hours and taken care of are in excellent condition. How does it start and run "now" is what is really important.

  If this engine is in good condition, the $400.00 asking price is a really good deal. If we lived closer together I would be over there looking right now. Advertise it on Craig's list in a major city near you and it should sell quickly.

Good Luck with the sale.

Sorry to take so long to get back to this.

It is roughly 12" wide(has angle iron mouning feet) by 16" long(fan blade to flywheel) Does not include radiator thickness.

 

I would be willing to trade for a Cub Cadet with Kohler/hydro in decent running condition-no deck required.

 

thanks. Chuck

Boy that's a tiny little bugger! I believe these are around 14hp. The D640 I have in my super cub has right around 16hp.

Hi,
I've just completed a deal with a guy in California that wants to buy the D600.
He saw this posting and looked up my C'list add and called.
While talking about possible shipping options, I mentioned that some people had success
with Fastenal. We both have stores within reasonable distances.
I called my local store and after asking about this service, they had to call and check with management outside of their store. They got back to me with a request for size/shape/weight information.
I received a quote later in the day for $225. The buyer in Ca also had contacted his local store and got a cost of nearly the same. We have since made the deal and I will be packing the engine/radiator on a pallet for shipping to Ca.

Thanks for listening and interest.
Chuck

If I had the money when you first posted this, that engine would be in my shop this very minute, but Santa can't afford it now.  :(   Glad you found a buyer!

I missed this thread, that was a GREAT deal on the engine and that shipping quote is the best you'll find anywhere.
