Kubota launches new product range at Plantworx 2015
Construction equipment specialists, Kubota UK, has announced the launch of a new product line to the UK market at Plantworx 2015 this June.
Kubota’s KC250HR-4 crawler dumper and RT Series articulated wheel loader will be officially unveiled at the show, displayed alongside a range of its existing, high-performance mini-excavators, such as the popular 2.0 tonne KX019-4.
The latest wheel loader models have been added to the line-up to further enhance the company’s machinery range of equipment for the construction sector.
The RT270 combines heavy-duty axles with a maximum capacity of 12 tonnes to enable a travelling speed of up to 25 km per hour, whilst the RT150 offers a tipping load of 580kg, making it ideal for jobs where enhanced power and manoeuvrability is essential.
Both machines are built to fit through the narrowest of spaces thanks to the 45-degree articulation-oscillating angle. A key benefit to users is also the incorporation of hydrostatic transmission and a high performance pump, which work together to deliver maximum power.
Neil Winfield, Kubota Construction’s Business Development Manager, commented: “Plantworx provides the perfect opportunity for us to demonstrate to customers exactly why Kubota’s first-class machinery is equipped for any challenge on site.
“We are always working towards designing new machinery that can compete on price and quality, and the addition of the wheel loaders and crawler dumper are perfect additions to our existing range; fulfilling the varied requirements of construction workers and hire companies.”
Kubota’s new KC250HR-4 crawler dumper comes equipped with an 84-degree dumping angle, which ensures that all materials exit easily from the skip, whilst the addition of a rotary function allows users to tip sideways 180 degrees when carrying out tasks such as trench filling.
A variable speed, 2-pump, 2-motor, clutchless Hydrostatic Transmission system delivers smooth control and allows operators to switch between high speeds (up to 11 km per hour) for flat surfaces, or low speeds (up to 6 km per hour) for rougher terrain.
A hydraulic swivel motor mounted on a slew ring provides a precise and fast rotation of the skip at 180 degrees, making it a truly adaptable machine for a wide range of applications.
