Kubota Tractors South Africa have signed an agreement with Evans Cooling Systems (Africa) that creates the opportunity for new Kubota Tractors to be factory filled with Evans Waterless Engine Coolants and permits distribution of the coolants to Kubota’s network of dealers across Southern Africa.

Evans Waterless Coolants are revolutionary engine cooling fluids formulated to prevent cooling system failure. Common problems such as overheating, corrosion, electrolysis, liner pitting, high pressure, and much more can be resolved by replacing the engines antifreeze with Evans. Evans unique waterless blend safely operates beyond the limitations of water under the most arduous conditions.

Wally Bergman, Managing Director of Kubota SA said.

‘Water based coolants often overheat which can be costly in two ways. The most obvious cost is the time wasted, less obvious is the unseen damage created within the engine itself. In the long-term this could result in the need for a complete engine rebuild. Evans coolants don’t overheat and prevent the downtime caused by boil over, but also protect from internal damage increasing the life of the engine. Kubota Tractors are known for their toughness in harsh working conditions, converting to Evans Waterless Coolants will minimise their downtime even further’.

Evans Coolants will not freeze even at temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius, while its boiling point is an impressive 191 degrees Celsius and even then it won’t boil over.

Unlike water and antifreeze mixes, Evans is a maintenance free fluid. There is no need for top ups or supplemental coolant additives. Evans will last for the life of the engine. Owners switching to the new product also have further peace of mind as unlike traditional antifreeze solutions, it is classed as non-toxic, dramatically reducing its health dangers.

Kubota and Polaris recommend the use of Evans Waterless Coolants in all Kubota tractors and Polaris ATV's.

Evans Waterless Coolants are available from your local Kubota or Polaris Dealer or from Smith Power Equipment on (011) 284 2068.
