Kubota

Kubota

In General:

Kubota can be identified on the following tables 

  Location (short description)
Vehicle identification number – in the middle of the vehicle imprinted on the boom mounting bracket and on the tail imprinted on the cross member
– on the type plate
Engine Number – on an adhesive type plate
– The type plate is on the valve cover
– punched into the flat surface of the injection pump or some other place on the engine block

 

The vehicle identification number can be used to determine the power trains installed when the vehicle was first delivered. It is not possible to do this in reverse order. Except for vehicles made in Germany. Which can partly be traced back.

Serial number àUnit installed = Yes
Aggregat àSerial number = No

 

1. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):

Breakdown of the 17 character VIN:

WKF R 240 00 X Z 0 00101
1 2 3 4 5 6 7

 

1= World Manufacturer Identifier Code (WMI)
2= Model
3= Free number
4= Year of manufacture
5= Manufacturing plant
6= Free number
7= Machine number
Since October 2005 an International Product Identification Number (PIN) has been used in place of the VIN. The excavators made in Germany have a punched-in 17-digit VIN. In vehicles made in Japan the 17-digit VIN is only indicated on the VIN plate; in the frame, however, only a 5 or 7 digit PIN (= the last digits of the 17-digit VIN) is punched in.
1.1 Location of the VIN

1.1.1 Location of the VIN on compact excavators

On a compact excavator the VIN is at the front, in the middle, imprinted on the boom mounting bracket, and on the tail, imprinted onto the cross member. It is also stamped onto the type plate, at the front, on the left, seen in the direction of travel.

1.1.2 Location of the VIN on zero tail-swing excavators

The VIN is located as described under Item 1.1.1 Location of the VIN in compact excavators.

1.1.3 Location of the VIN on wheel loaders

On wheel loaders the VIN is at the front, imprinted onto the front mounting of the bow of the vehicle, on the right, in the direction of travel, and on the tail, imprinted onto the cross member. It is also stamped onto the type plate and imprinted beneath the type plate, at the front, on the right, in the direction of travel.

2. Type Plate:

There is a type plate on every machine.

2.1 Location of the type plate

2.1.1 and 2.1.2 Location of the type on compact excavators and zero tail-swing excavators

The VIN plate with VIN is glued or riveted to the front of the body.

2.1.3 Location of the type plate on wheel loaders

The type plate with the VIN is stuck on and is on the front mounting of the bow of the vehicle, on the left

2.1.4 Location of the type plate on crawler dumpers

The VIN plate is glued to the front right side of the cab platform frame member.

2.2 Composition of the type plate

2.2.1 Shape of VIN plate in compact excavators, zero tailswing compact excavators, wheel loaders and crawler dumpers

The type plates are sometimes printed and the VIN and model year are stamped on.

The following data appear on the type plate:

Manufacturer (Name and country)

Model

Serial-No. (Vehicle identification number)

Operating weight and maximum weight

Engine performance

Year of manufacture

CE Mark

3. Engine Number:

3.1 Location of the engine number

3.1.1 Location of the engine number on compact excavators, zero tail-swing excavators and wheel loaders

The engine number is printed onto an adhesive type plate. The type plates are on the valve cover.

On adhesive type plates the engine number is called the Serial No. Adhesive type plates are put in place at the works and cannot be removed without being destroyed.

The VIN cannot be determined from the engine number.
In addition, the engine identification number is punched into a flat surface under the injection pump (red arrow).

3.2 Appearance of the engine number

All engines used are produced by KUBOTA.
The engine serial number contains information on the engine model and date of production

1 = Engine model of Kubota
2 = Separator
3 = Year of production (5=2005)
4 = Month of production 
5 = Serial number

4. Vehicle Keys:

Since September 2005, 17 Kubota models have a standard anti-theft system (ANTI THEFT). It ist a transponder system with one red key (master key) and 2 – 4 black normal keys. All machines have the same mechanical key!
