Launched in 2017, Kubota’s KX042-4 is the most environmentally friendly excavator in the four-tonne weight category. The powerful machine boasts significant eco-friendly credentials thanks to the incorporation of a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) that ensures a clean exhaust and Kubota’s ECO Plus Mode to reduce fuel consumption. The Common Rail System (CRS) electronically controls the fuel injection timing and amount in stages rather than all at once, for optimal combustion. This results in greater efficiency, better fuel economy and less engine noise.
In addition, certain features of the KX042-4, such as the AUX oil flow with proportional flow control, auto idling, auto-shift and dozer float position, provide the machine with the power and versatility to handle tough jobs with ease.
Kubota U36-4, also launched last year, is a 3.5 tonne machine that combines superior power and outstanding versatility to tackle the most demanding jobs. The zero-tail swing ensures excellent stability and the ability to work in confined spaces, whilst the operation of auxiliary attachments is now simpler with precise oil flow control to the auxiliary circuit. A more powerful arm breakout force, combined with an array of enhanced functions, results in the smooth and productive operation.
Adrian Mann, Kubota UK’s product manager for its Construction Equipment Division, said: “These flexible finance solutions have been launched to support owner operators and those within the plant market, giving them the opportunity to own their first Kubota or expand their fleet. At Kubota, we are constantly looking at ways we can raise the bar and enhance the service we provide. This new initiative is another example of our commitment to driving the construction sector forward.”
