Kubota launch next-generation wheel loaders
New R070 and R090 machines said to offer ease and efficiency without compromising on power
KUBOTA have launched their next-generation R070 and R090 wheel loaders, both of which have been redesigned inside and out and now boast a fully enclosed glass cabin for improved visibility, as well as a more ergonomic control layout.
New features include: a high-visibility cabin with enlarged glass surface; fully opening right window; optional air-conditioning; adjustable right wrist rest; digital display; full suspension seat; and tiltable steering wheel.
A new long-reach loader boom design and high lifting capacity (R070: 18,436N; R090: 21,182N) ensure smooth performance in a wide range of loader and material-handling tasks. All major loader functions are on a single, easy-to-operate right-hand lever, whilst the two-step speed control switch allows quick changes in speed for optimum efficiency.
Moreover, Kubota’s fuel-efficient V2607 direct-injection engine is now fully Stage-V compliant, whilst the new and improved DPF reduces maintenance by increasing the service intervals.
Glen Hampson, business development manager for Construction at Kubota UK, said: ‘Both the R070 and R090 are built for enhanced performance, with productivity features and power to spare. They’re also built for safe and simple operation, even by operators with no loader experience.
‘We know our customers want versatile, reliable, low-maintenance machines, which is why the R070 and R090 are designed to meet Kubota’s exacting standards of quality and performance. The wheel loaders are easy to maintain, with areas that require routine maintenance being easily accessible for fast and straightforward servicing.’
