J.J. Zeilstra of Kawasaki Engines introduces the company's new engine, the FT730V-EFI,
which is the first engine from Kawasaki to employ Vortical Air Filtration (VAF). This advanced,
high-efficiency air intake system uses centrifugal air movement to move heavy grass, dust,
and debris away from the air filter and eject it through a duckbill ejection valve. Once the
ejection process is completed, only fine dust is left, which is easily trapped in the filter.
Yanmar was founded in 1912 and developed the world's first commercially viable small diesel engine in 1933. The diesel engine has continued as our core business ever since, our key tool in the rationalization and modernization of agriculture, fishing and industry.
