Kubota Engine America Corp. has introduced a new generator able to better serve the diverse needs of the power generation market

The Lowboy Pro GL14000 is a 60Hz, 14 kVA single-phase generator that is Tier 4 -certified. It is powered by Kubota’s reliable D902 diesel engine and is much quieter than similar-sized models on the market, with noise levels as low as 65 dB while running. 

 “The GL14000 complements our existing Lowboy II line of generators, but offers greater application potential to suit our customers’ industrial needs,” says Gary Odden, Kubota generator expert. “At Kubota, we saw increasing demand for diesel-powered generators in the 14 KVA range that can serve industries such as construction, oil, gas and back-up power. The GL14000’s higher outputs allow us to give them greater power capability.”

Like Kubota’s existing generators, the LowboyPro line’s GL14000 is fully enclosed and compact, while most competitors offer only open units. These features allow the GL14000 to reduce noise while protecting the unit from environmental factors and improve the running life of the generator. It also has both the receptacle and terminal in one package, offering more flexibility and versatility for use. It also includes a higher quality alternator that is triple-sealed during production and uses corrosion-resistant paint. 

 “We’re very excited to be able to offer our customers more unmatched, reliable options,” Odden says. “The GL14000 is unique in that it is compact and fully enclosed, while still carrying the renowned Kubota quality and unrivaled dependability our customers have come to expect. The long-lasting alternator, higher outputs and other focused upgrades will only help us serve them more.”

“The GL14000 is quiet, requires a small space claim and is resistant to the elements,” says Matt Mazanti, Industrial OEM manager at CASCADE Engine Center. “The GL14000 looks like, and is, a quality product.”

The GL14000 hit the market at the beginning of the2Q 2017.
