 Kubota B2150 Engine life in hours

I have a B2150 with 2000 hrs. She's still running strong at the moment. My question is how many hours are normal for the life expectancy of a motor

8x56mn,

At 5000 hours an engine is considered to be at, or very near the end of its serviceable life expectancy.

Depending on maintenance Joel has it pegged pretty good.

We put about 2,000 hours a year on the tractors, and run them 3 or 4 years before rotating them out of the fleet.

I know of units we sold years ago that had 8,000+ hours on them then that are still going strong today, but we maintain them to death!! At busy times of the year it's not unusual for a tractor to get 2 oil changes a WEEK!

Best of luck.

KleinChris,

I don't know how the market handles the imported tractors.

Generally speaking, when any diesel engine has reached the 5000 hour mark, it is considered spent.

This is why most older tractors sell with "Fresh Rebuild", or "Recent Overhaul". If the owner of the tractor didn't invest in the engine rebuild, he wouldn't be able to sell it.

At 5000 hours, MOST (not all) diesel engines will require a minimum of new rings, rod and crank bearings, and a valve adjustment. However, while the engine is out, most people just spend the money to do a complete rebuild, as downtime is something that costs a lot more money in the end.

Tractors with over 5000 hours on them sell CHEAP, unless a certified overhaul spec. sheet can be produced, detailing the services performed. This is the reason why most farmers do not overhaul their own engines. They need the dealer service spec sheet to make it worth anything on trade or at sale time.

Joel

Noone knows how long they will last these days of almost exact tolerances and synthetic oils. I think the engine is the last to go. And hey Murf, after 5,000 hrs isn't everyhing else on the tractor so beat up that it ain't worth fixing?? Just wondering.

There are so many differences in design as well as the materials used to build an engine that with out knowning the engine it's hard to predict. As well as the tolerences that the manufacturer uses while building you also have the use and maintence that play into as well as the quality of the fluids.

I know of many that are lucky to get three thousand hours as well as engines that live to 18000 hours.

There is no key here but a balance of all the moving as well as stationary parts working well together.

If the exact same work and maintenance was perforformed on a Yanmar engine and a Jinma engine, do you think the Jinma would hold out as long as the Yanmar?

KK; That would be a shot in the dark. Just too many variables to consider. Are the bearing materials of the same quality, the clearances of working parts the same, cylinder walls of the same grade of finish, same quality piaton rings, etc., etc. I've heard nothing bad about either engine. You just do your best at maintenece and hope nothing goes wrong. Very few engines just totally wear out, most die from a coolant leak into the engine oil, overheating from a failed cooling system, failed air cleaner, etc. before total wear out. The 5000 hour figure has been used here, that's probably an average normal hour overhaul, some go lots less, others go twice that long. What is your intended use for the tractor? Unless you are a commercial landscaper or someone who piles on the hours a five thousand hour engine will last you a lifetime. Frank.

Well thanks to all for the insight. I have owned this tracor now for 5 years and have put on 400 hours. I have changed the oil and filter once each spring. The hardest work it sees is bush hogging. I feel better know knowing it could last me the rest of my days at this rate and a little luck.
Thanks
