Electric model amongst new Kubota tracked dumpers

KUBOTA has added to its tracked dumper portfolio with the launch of two new models.

The KC70VSL-4 e is an electric model, while the KC110SL-4 is a new diesel machine.

The KC70VSL-4 e has been developed on the base of the KC70H-4 e, featuring a lithium battery pack of 48V and 120 Ah. Kubota said the new model will be a ‘perfect fit’ for city centre working due to its quiet operation. The tracked dumper is said to bring more versatility than the KC70H-4e with a variable track and a self-loading device.

The model has a maximum load capacity of 700kg. The width of the machine is 758mm (tracks retracted), allowing users to work in tight areas. The tracks are also electrically powered. Kubota added that the machine can be charged totally in three hours and reach 80% charge in 1.5 hours. A complete charge will allow a full day’s work. The Universal fast external Battery Charger (UBC) is sold with the machine and it works with the following power and tensions (3 kW and from 80V to 240V).

The new KC110SL-4 is equipped with a front tip skip of 1,200kg of capacity and self-loading device. The model boasts a Kubota D722 Stage V engine. The manufacturer explained that the machine can overcome any slopes up to 20° and will be useful for construction work, renovation or landscaping.
