Kubota unveils new KX080-4a2 midi excavator

    New machine delivers usual Kubota efficiency with a cleaner design and improved performance

    Kubota, a leading manufacturer of construction
    machinery, today announces the launch of the KX080-4a2 as the latest in its
    range of midi excavators.

    This new machine is capable
    of the same reliable performance as previous models but includes Kubota’s V3307
    direct injection engine – which is now fully Stage-V compliant.  The new
    model has a reduced engine RPM DPF re-gen, giving reduced noise levels,
    increased DPF re-gen intervals and increased DPF replacement life. This reduces
    maintenance costs and the machine’s environmental impact whilst enhancing
    productivity for a wide range of tasks.

    The KX080-4a2 incorporates a
    brand new 2-pump load-sensing hydraulic system which ensures smoother
    operations when using front attachments, regardless of loading size. By
    allowing hydraulic oil to flow according to the specific range of the
    operator’s lever motion, the new system reduces fuel consumption and improves
    the overall operating performance. The machine’s auto idling system is fitted
    as standard – reducing not only running costs but noise and exhaust emissions,
    enabling users to operate in a wider range of environments. What’s more, vital
    components such as the battery, fluid tanks and filters are now easier to
    access, making maintenance simpler than ever.

    Numerous safety features
    come as standard on the KX080-4a2; such as the auto-stop function on the tank’s
    electric refuelling pump, an anti-drop valve on the boom and arm cylinder,
    advanced visibility mirrors, a seat belt indicator and increased stability. The
    machine is protected by Kubota’s highly regarded anti-theft system, meaning
    only programmed keys will enable the engine to start up. Anyone attempting to
    start with an un-programmed key will activate the alarm. Newly enhanced
    features send an alert to remind the operator to extract the key after
    operation, and an LED to alert potential thieves that the system is activated.

    The updated excavator – which
    is a compact width of 2,200mm comes with a floating dozer blade fitted as
    standard. This model has been designed with improved operator comfort,
    including a more spacious cab, improved foot space, including a re-designed
    foot pedals and deluxe high-back suspension seat. The cab features an air
    conditioning unit and an easy-to-read LCD panel so users can monitor the
    machine’s status at all times.

    The machine can also be
    equipped with a two-piece boom. This feature’s user-friendly design makes
    operation simple whilst its innovative hydraulic mechanism enables smooth
    operation. Users benefit from expanded working range, impressive dumping range
    and the ability to operate in narrow spaces.
