The new generation engines with E controls I don't think come out until next year in the under 50 hp class. My impression is that you are still getting Tier II engines this year.

I've got a Lincoln Vantage 400 welder wtih a 33 hp perkins in it.
it seems to be a very nice engine bought last year--- but it is TIER II and all mechanical. The mechanical ones are likely to work a lot longer and give a lot less trouble than the E machines, but alas they will have more emissions.

Re: Most advanced small diesel engine? (10-40 HP)

Doesn't Yanmar or Kubota make some small engines with electronic controlls?

don't know, but they all will be as the EPA TIER III slides down to engines under 50 HP. If it adds $3k to thte price of the engine like it has for larger engines, I doubtful it there will be much demand for these engines.

Re: Most advanced small diesel engine? (10-40 HP)

I will start by saying that I don't know anything about them. I don't know if you guys have ever heard of Branson tractors before... but there is a dealer here in my area that I've delivered freight to, and taking a look at some of their equipment, I was surprised to see that many, if not all of their even smallest power units carried the "Powered by Cummins" badge. I for one was surprised to see that Cummins had a part in this market, and Cummins does a real good job of marketing itself as the technology leader, and a company of firsts. I'm just saying I would be surprised if they aren't producing something that might meet your needs.

Post-posting comments:

I just took a look at the Branson Website.. digging through there it looks like their smallest HP Cummins is a 65hp with the following specs:

4 Cylinder, 4 cycle Water Cooled Diesel
Direct Injection
Naturally Aspirated
65@2600 rpm (57 PTO)
4 cylinder
3.74 x 4.52 bore/stroke
3260 cc 3.3L
18:1 Compression
0.083gal/hp.hr Fuel Consumption
Dry, Element Air filter

I posted it anyway, but maybe not what you're looking for, and heaven only knows what the availability of an engine like this might be.

I'm looking for something around .5 to .9 litre. Which manufacturers have the cleanest burning system?

Try Hatz, their small air-cooled diesels are supposed to be very clean running. www.hatzusa.com

Kubota is one tough engine, very reliable and efficient.
