KUBOTA UK has described next month’s Executive Hire Show as the “ideal platform” to launch its new KX030-4 mini-excavator.

The machine features two hydraulic variable pumps, along with a gear pump, which the manufacturer claimed allows “smooth, synchronised digging and dozing operations for improved output and productivity”.

A “large flat floor space”, full suspension seat and Kubota’s ergonomic control panel come as standard.

The KX030-4 is available in both standard and high spec versions and includes anti-theft technology for extra security. The machine is powered by a EU Stage V ready Kubota-built engine.

A statement from Kubota UK said, “This compact machine offers impressive digging force and the ability to simultaneously operate the boom, arm, bucket and swivel, delivering a more than competitive digging cycle. The high spec version offers users innovative thumb-operated AUX 1 & 2 oil flows with proportional flow control and Auto shift, for even greater versatility. Built with ease of maintenance in mind, the KX030-4 has three easy opening hinged access doors to provide quick and easy access for service and inspection.”

Kubota will also be displaying a host of other machines including the 4-tonne KX042-4 mini, which incorporates a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Common Rail System (CRS) with Kubota’s ECO Plus mode.

Dave Roberts, managing director of Kubota UK said, “The Executive Hire Show is the pinnacle event for the plant hire industry. The show gives us the opportunity to highlight our ongoing commitment to bringing the most innovative and high performance compact construction machinery to the market and showcase our Stage V certified engines. It’s also a great chance to meet current and potential customers and answer any questions they might have about our product and service offering.

“The Kubota stand features all our key solutions that are ideal for this sector, including the UK debut of the KX030-4, which we are delighted to be launching at the event.”
