Kubota GL Series Diesel Generator
Kubota GL Lowboy II saves space and environment.
The Lowboy II series is designed to have the minimum possible height while using vertical diesel engines. This is achieved by direct coupling of the engine crankshaft with the cooling fan. Since they require less space for operation, the range of possible applications has greatly increased.
2-Pole Single Phase
Output Range: Single Phase 5.5 ~ 10.0 kVA
The generator and the engine are direct-coupled to ensure a more reliable power supply with minimum power loss.
A Skewed Rotor & Damper Winding
The waveform distortion is kept to a minimum by the skewed rotor, while the damper winding protects the generator during short circuits, regulates voltage fluctuations during condensive loads, and withstands load fluctuations during condensive and non-linear loads.
The diesel engines (Z482 and D722) selected to power the LOWBOYⅡ Series produce far less soot, HC and CO emissions thanks to Kubota's original E-TVCS combustion system. Both Z482 and D722 passed the USA EPA Emission Tier 4 Regulation.
Ease of Operation
Lower and more Compact
The LOWBOYⅡ Series is designed to have the minimum possible height while using vertical diesel engines. This is achieved by direct coupling of the engine crankshaft with the cooling fan. Since they require less space for operation,the range of possible applications has been greatly increased.
Lower Noise Levels
Four separate improvements help reduce the overall noise levels. First, the large capacity radiator successfully reduces fan related noise by direct coupling its crankshaft with the slower-speed fan. Second, the large capacity, built-in muffler helps reduce exhaust related noise. Third, the longer air cleaner hose reduces air suction related noise. Fourth, the ideally placed inlet vent and its improved design reduce noise coming from the enclosure's opening.
Longer Continuous Operation
The LOWBOYⅡ Series' large capacity (28L) fuel tank enables longer continuous operation on a single tank of fuel.
The special forklift openings on the base of the machine, and the one-point lifting eye enhanced transportability. A remote control kit is also available as an option.
Access Terminals for ATS make Wiring Easy
Access Terminals for ATS (Automatic Transfer Switches / not supplied by Kubota) are located behind the control panel.
One Side Maintenance
Oil, fuel, battery, and cooling water are all located on one side for easy maintenance.
Larger-Capacity Oil Pan
This helps stretching the oil change intervals, thus reducing the overall running cost.
Eliminated the time needed to adjust or replace the cog-belt by direct coupling the generator and the engine.
Double Element Air Cleaners
All LOWBOYⅡ generators come with double element air cleaners as standard equipment. Ideal for heavy duty applications in dusty environments.
Double Circuit Protectors
In addition to the overall circuit protector, each receptacle also has a circuit protector that will shut the engine down to prevent it from overcurrent damages.
Output Connection Cover
This cover, on all terminal type LOWBOYⅡ, stops the engine immediately when it is opened up during operation.
All moving parts of the engine's cooling fan and the generator are covered.
Automatic Shutdown System
This system automatically shuts the engine down when it senses the engine coolant temperature rising excessively or the oil pressure dropping below a safe level.
Starter Safety Relay
This relay prevents the starter from engaging again once the engine starts up.
