Absolute proof that you need a turbo!

A RHB31 will fit nicely on the D722. And they're reasonably priced.

Got my turbo...finally. Ordered a Factory turbo manifold from a Military application. It came on the slow boat from Japan. Actually the only turbo option the Kubota factory offered on the D722 is from a military application. The Turbo I ended up with is a TD025M which is the factory turbo for that Engine. I'm debating on whether to build, modify or Buy the factory turbo intake manifold cause....the NA intake won't work.


I was underneath the cart trying to figure out an engine cradle for mounting the engine and found both frame rails rusted through....talk about a major bummer. Not in the usual corners but the actual frame rail. Looked around for a new frame etc etc....Almost tossed the whole thing and sold the engine....but I persisted and pushed through. Got all the frame rail damage cut out and replaced and beefed up. Looks awesome now. I'll try and grab some pics tomorrow.



Got the body done. I had it Scorpion Lined inside and out.

Cell phone pics....not very good.

Well....Everything got put on the back burner cause I was task with building a CNC plasma table...I stopped everything. I figured I could build all the parts I needed with that. Threw around some ideas and built this. My boss keeps telling me to work on the cart but...I don't feel right doing it at work but then again why should I when he tells me to do it.

It'll burn 68"x152"....Uses a hypertherm powermax 105...SHeetcam and Mach3 for control. It'll do both plasma and Oxy-fuel. Going to add and engraving tool when things pick up a bit. It has water to cut down on smoke.....when I want to drain/clean it I just open a valve and it dumps into a holding tank....when I want to re-fill it I shoot compressed air into the tank to fill the table. Works nicely. You can cut pipe with it to....sorta...I don't have a rotary axis for it yet but its coming.

These are some pics before we got it finished...it's all in working order now. In these pics only the bridge is mounted but no X axis and the Z. I don't have any recent pics on this phone. Maybe get some tomorrow.
