Hi, beta engines are marinised kubota engines, parts
availability is very good worldwide, you don't need to frequent marine engine
outlets as the base engines are used in many and varied industrial applications, whereas Bukh are an older marine
that forces you to deal with "marine" dealers exclusively. There are Bukh dealers that recondition second hand engines, often with a can of red paint
, which have been known to become money
The fact that you have quoted dear Pauline tells me that you are an Aussie, intuition tells me that you are most likely located in Sydney
or thereabouts and I could probably guess the dealer that you mentioned.
Another kubota based mariniser is WM diesel
on sydney's northern beaches, in my opinion a better product however a little dearer.
Good luck in your decision making process.
