High power, lower emissions, outstanding reliability and economic performance are all delivered by Kubota’s impressively powerful, Stage V compliant 10.3 PS engine.
MAXIMISED OUTPUT FOR MINIMISED SPACES
Incredibly compact and highly reliable; the efficient K008-5 offers a high power to weight ratio with an adjustable width track making it the perfect choice take on tough jobs in small spaces.
