KUBOTA UNVEILS NEW GENERATION MINI-EXCAVATOR

Kubota has introduced the U27-4, a compact excavator that doesn’t compromise on power and performance and is ideally suited to the hire market. From a rugged Kubota-built engine and powerful digging force through to the biggest cab in its class, the U27-4 ensures the machine’s productivity far exceeds that of its competitors whilst also offering maximum comfort.

The 2.6 tonne excavator, its weight meaning the machine is ideal for towing, is available in two models. The Standard U27-4 model is ideal for general excavation jobs, whilst the High-Spec model utilises AUX oil flow with proportional flow control and auto-shift for even greater versatility and performance to meet the needs of any job.

Delivering an impressive bucket digging force, the U27-4 has a powerful and well-balanced arm and bucket that allows the operator to dig fast, deep and more efficiently even in the toughest conditions. Furthermore, when simultaneous operation of the boom, arm, bucket and swivel are required, two variable pumps will distribute the correct amount of oil flow to each actuator, enabling continuous high performance digging and dozing.

In addition to powerful performance, the U27-4 has also been designed with comfort in mind. The U27-4’s operator station offers all the functions and amenities users need to keep working in comfort all day long, including excellent visibility, easy-open front slide window, an adjustable suspension seat and an innovative forward mounted intuitive panel for simple programme setting at your fingertips. The U27-4 offers a generous amount of foot space for improved comfort, as well as a tall and wide door to facilitate faster and easier entry and exit.

Maintenance on the U27-4 is a straightforward task, thanks to the fully opening access door and hood, proving quick and easy access to all inspection and maintenance areas of the engine. The U27-4 is also equipped with a full range of safety features, as well as a variety of conveniences, including tie-downs and a tool box.

Kevin Hamilton, Kubota NZ CE Sales Manager, said: “At Kubota, we are constantly taking on the feedback of our customers and dealers to ensure we bring new machines to market that offer the performance requirements and operational comfort they seek.”

“Our new U27-4 excavator is perfect for the New Zealand market, as the machine not only offers contractors superior productivity and efficiency, but also the ability for operators to work in comfort all day long.”
