Customer Question
I have a Kubota...

I have a Kubota diesel E300 engine running a ground thaw machine. The engine runs great for an extended period of time then dies out unexpectedly. There is plenty of fuel in the tank, the fuel has been treated for these cold temps, we are confused as to why it runs so good for so long then dies.

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Thank you
