Trio of new Kubota models wow Plantworx visitors

KUBOTA has launched three new models at Plantworx 2023.

The 8.5-tonne KX085-5 mini-excavator was joined on the stand by two new additions to Kubota’s Smart Energy Solutions range of sustainable machinery: the RT210-2e and RT220-2 electric RT compact wheel loaders.

The KX085-5 is powered by a low emission Kubota engine and can be used with a two-piece boom, expanding the working range and increasing efficiency in narrow spaces.

Kubota’s next generation RT compact wheel loaders are powered by a 48V system with modular 260Ah lithium-ion batteries. The machines regenerate energy when the model decelerates.

In addition to the new machines, visitors to the Kubota stand were also able to find out more about the manufacturer’s new OnSite App, which allows users to access their machinery handbook and quick start guide, and ‘how to’ videos for each machine.

Rob White, division manager for construction at Kubota UK, said, “It’s been an exciting year for Kubota so far, with a host of new models and service updates announced, so it was brilliant to be able to demonstrate them to the visitors to our stand. Plantworx is a cornerstone event of the UK construction machinery sector and it was great to see so many people at this year’s show and to see such interest in our newest models to market.”
