California CIC

California CIC

California CIC

My company has begun manufacturing sod roll installation equipment.  Mainly these units are in the landscaping industries to install large rolls of sod on residential or commercial properties.  They are powered by Kubota D902 diesel or a Kohler Command 27 Gas Engine.  My question is where on the CARB website would I find the requirements for these engines and any other requirements that our machines may need to quaulify as CIC (Clean Idle Certified). Also, are there any requirements regarding hydraulic systems as far as the reservoir or lines?


RE: California CIC

As far as special California requirements go, I have worked for several off-road OEM's and the only two I can think of is they require a 3" seat belt (everyone else is fine with 2") and you need a sticker to warn the operator that diesel fumes can cause cancer.

As far as the emissions go, I'm not sure where to find out. You should be able to ask your engine supplier or call up Kohler/Kubota, they should be willing to help out since you are helping to sell their brand.
