Kubota powering ahead with new wheel loaders

Wheel loader

Kubota’s new RT and RO Series wheel loaders made their UK debut at Plantworx.

Described by the firm as being specially designed to suit a variety of end user applications such as construction, agriculture, gardening and public works, the articulated wheel loaders have been developed to ensure “efficiency and flexibility” for users.

The latest models introduced to the company’s RT Series line-up incorporate a 45-degree articulation-oscillating angle, which Kubota says makes it easy for users to fit through the smallest of spaces without damaging surfaces when carrying out tasks. Hydrostatic transmission and a high performance pump also work together to “deliver maximum performance on site”.

Heavy-duty axles with a maximum capacity of 12 tonnes allow for a travelling speed of up to 25km per hour on the RT270 and a tipping load of 2600 that rivals that of its competitors.

Kubota said the RO65 and RO85 wheel loaders have undergone significant developments to offer a long dumping reach and high dumping clearance, allowing users to dump waste into truck beds with “complete ease”.

Neil Winfield, Kubota Construction’s Business Development Manager, said, “The new Wheel Loaders have been introduced to the market following extensive work to manufacture machinery that can deliver on performance, ease of operation and comfort. Not only have we designed wheel loaders that enhance user performance and safety, we have made significant developments to ensure that the operator can comfortably spend extended periods of time in the cab.”
