Kubota's latest addition is the 5,4 tonne KX057-4 mini excavator. Operators will appreciate the enlarged cab, which has a wider entrance and more foot space as well as being larger overall.
In terms of functionality, Kubota describes its new machine as "tool carrier," capable of working with a range of hydraulic attachments. It is equipped with two auxiliary hydraulic lines, with oil flows that can be adjusted independently via the in-cab digital control panel.
Power comes from one of Kubota's own 34 kW direct injection diesel engines, which is combined with a three-pump load-sensing hydraulic system. The machine offers a maximum digging depth of 3,9 m.
