Case Study

Full VM engine rebuild for a NZ kiwifruit sprayer

Workshop image of a VM engine tractor parts NZ rebuild

Check out this VM engine rebuild, straight out of a kiwifruit sprayer in NZ's Bay of Plenty

We often get sent in photos from customers of repairs using our tractor parts. We are always stoked to see how it all plays out in the workshop!

This self-propelled kiwifruit sprayer in New Zealand's Bay of Plenty region is fitted with an Italian VM D754 water-cooled engine. Without regular quality maintenance, they can overheat & bust up.

We would hate to know how cramped it must be in that cabin too 😖.

You may also have seen this posted on our facebook page, because we like to share the interesting things happening in workshops here in NZ and around the world.

Here is the engine in rebuild mode, brought back to life with tractor parts supplied by our team at ProPart NZ.

This will definitely have been a fun job!

Fun fact about VMs: Interestingly, VM engines have been used in a number of other vehicles, including Toyota, Jeep, Isuzu, Chevrolet, Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Range Rover, Holden, plus marine Mercruiser engines, & a number of other brands.

At ProPart we carry a full range of rebuild parts for the VM engines, from cylinder heads, to liners & pistons, gasket sets, turbo, and all associated parts.

Our specialty is definitely in technical and breakdown tractor parts, serving both NZ and worldwide.
