Kubota gear up to launch new mini at the Executive Hire Show
Kubota UK will be using the Executive Hire Show 2018 ( 7th& 8th February at the Ricoh Arena) to officially launch its new KX030-4 mini-excavator – which Kubota say is a powerful machine with a number of innovative features to maximise operational performance.
The KX030-4 features two hydraulic variable pumps, along with a gear pump, which allows smooth, synchronised digging and dozing operations for improved output and productivity. A large flat floor space, full suspension seat and Kubota’s intuitive ergonomic control panel come as standard within the largest in class cabin, offering quiet comfort with high visibility for reduced operator fatigue.
Available in standard and high spec versions, the KX030-4 includes Kubota’s unique anti-theft technology to increase machine security and is powered by a reliable and robust EU Stage V ready Kubota-built engine. This compact machine offers impressive digging force and the ability to simultaneously operate the boom, arm, bucket and swivel, delivering a more than competitive digging cycle. The high spec version offers users innovative thumb-operated AUX 1 & 2 oil flows with proportional flow control and Auto shift, for even greater versatility. Built with ease of maintenance in mind, the KX030-4 has three easy opening hinged access doors to provide quick and easy access for service and inspection.
Also at the Show will be the KX042-4, a 4-tonne machine which according to Kubota is the most environmentally friendly excavator in its class. The mini-excavator incorporates a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Common Rail System (CRS) with Kubota’s ECO Plus mode to maximise fuel efficiency.
In addition, a whole host of other Kubota machines will be on display, including a number of firm favourites within the plant hire sector, such as the K008-3, KX016-4 and the zero tail swing U17-3 and U27-4 models. The company’s KC70VHD-4, a reliable high dump tracked carrier that’s ideal for moving materials on-site through narrow spaces and on softer ground, will also feature on-stand.
Kubota will also have a dedicated area on its stand for its Stage V certified engines. This will include the D1803-CR Common Rail diesel model that is factory fitted with DPF technology to offer a cleaner high-performance engine, as well as the WG1605 model, a large spark ignited engine available in LPG, Gasoline or dual fuel versions. Visitors to stand can also view up close the Z482, a 2-cylinder (13.3HP at 3600RPM) vertical, lightweight and water-cooled diesel engine, which ideally suited for the lighting tower OEM market and packs a real punch as one of the most hardworking and cleanest running diesel engines available in its category.
As well as Kubota’s expert team of construction and engine specialists on-stand to help answer any queries visitors might have, representatives from Kubota’s aftersales division will be on-hand to discuss servicing and the benefits of Kubota’s genuine parts offering. Kubota will also be promoting Trakm8, its telematics solution that can be integrated with its anti-theft technology to increase fleet efficiency and security.
Dave Roberts, Managing Director of Kubota UK, said: “The Executive Hire Show is the pinnacle event for the plant hire industry. The show gives us the opportunity to highlight our ongoing commitment to bringing the most innovative and high performance compact construction machinery to the market and showcase our Stage V certified engines. It’s also a great chance to meet current and potential customers and answer any questions they might have about our product and service offering.
“The Kubota stand features all our key solutions that are ideal for this sector, including the UK debut of the KX030-4, which we are delighted to be launching at the event. There’s so much for visitors to see on our stand we look forward to seeing you at the Ricoh Arena in February.”
