Kubota Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning Program Kubota Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaning Program

The world’s most reliable engine manufacturer recently launched a cleaning program to ensure each diesel particulate filter, or DPF, in its diesel engines meets full certification standards. The new program by Kubota is available in the United States and Canada and guarantees certified clean DPFs by the original engine manufacturer. The complete, no-hassle program is available via two methods. The Clean DPF Exchange Kit minimizes downtime for end-users, while the Clean and Return option is best for planned downtime. Both methods allow end-users to avoid unscheduled issues and increase DPF life cycles before too much ash builds up and collects in the filter, restricting exhaust gas flow and increasing back pressure.

Then, using state-of-the-art cleaning equipment and inspection techniques, it’s fully restored and reassembled. This brings the part back to the original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) standards. Buying remanufactured parts instead of new helps to reduce ownership and operating costs while improving resale and maintenance values, ensuring the JCB machine remains an attractive investment.

Cat Bar-Style Rubber TracksCat Bar-Style Rubber Tracks

Caterpillar offers a bar-style rubber track for all compact track loader models as both a factory option and as a replacement part offering. The bar-style rubber track incorporates steel imbeds and longitudinal steel cords similar to the block-style track. However, the bar-tread rubber track differentiates itself in its ability to minimize ground disturbance, making it ideal for landscapers who perform finish grade work. The bar-style track leaves behind a series of narrow, parallel ridges that are easily knocked down with a rake prior to installing sod or other finishing product. The bar-style tread also offers extra traction when operating in snow, especially when compared to a traditional block-tread pattern. The bar-style track will allow Cat track loader models, both old and new, to be even more versatile. For more info, contact your local cat dealer or visit
