The new KX037-4 replaces the KX101-3a4 in Kubota’s comprehensive line up, boasting a wealth of new features to improve everyday efficiency, ease of use and compliance with industry regulations.
The 3.7-tonne machine will be available from Boss Plant Sales from the end of January 2019.
Numerous safety features come as standard on the KX037-4, including four top frame tie-down points for safe transportation of the machine between worksites. The new model also features Kubota’s engine safe start system plus a hydraulic lockout on the left-hand console, and optional safety valves for the boom, arm and dozer.
A fuel tank level buzzer alerts operators to possible overfilling of the fuel tank, preventing fuel waste and harm to the environment. This new machine also features large opening service panels, allowing excellent access for routine maintenance. The KX037-4 is protected by Kubota’s highly-regarded anti-theft system, which is fitted as standard.
Numerous improvements have been made with regard to comfort for operators, including a larger, more spacious cab with increased foot space, a new door configuration – which is approximately 40% wider than the previous KX101-3a4, offering enhanced access. The cab also features a weight-adjustable full suspension seat as standard, and air conditioning as an optional extra. An easy-to-read LCD panel in the cab enables effortless monitoring of the machine’s status at all times.
The KX037-4 is powered by a Stage V-ready 17.8 kW Kubota engine delivering power, fuel economy and low emissions. The excavator comes with auto-shift and auto-idle features as standard, which offer both smoother operation when dozing and turning and reduced fuel consumption with lower noise levels and emissions.
Glen Hampson, Business Development Manager, Construction Division, Kubota UK, comments: “Offering powerful digging force, market-leading versatility, and smooth, simple comfortable operation, the KX037-4 is a mid-weight compact excavator which does not compromise on performance. As well as Kubota’s traditional reliability and ease of servicing, the new features of this model are designed to aid compliance with environmental and construction industry standards making this the ideal excavator for multiple applications.”
The KX037-4 also offers proportional controlled Aux 1, with 12% greater flow than the previous model, with proportional Aux 2 available as an option. In addition, large capacity variable displacement pumps enable smooth, synchronised operation of the boom, arm and bucket, returning exceptional productivity.

Leading manufacturer of material handling equipment Manitou was one of the stars at the LAMMA exhibition last week (now at the NEC) with an impressive stand. Taking the market by surprise they unveiled a skid steer loader to the public and the press.
The 2700 V (for vertical lift) has a 1,225 kg load capacity, a 3.3 metre lift height and a 19 kph travel speed. Powered by a 72 hp Yanmar engine the compact machine is 1.76 m wide, 3.7 m long and 2m high.
More information will follow.
The 2 day LAMMA exhibition attracted over 40,000 visitors!
The MHT 10230 all-terrain high capacity telehandler is capable of flexibly and safely transporting heavy, larger loads with complete precision. The large number of compatible attachments available make it a truly versatile multi-tool carrier, whilst the ergonomic driver's cab features intuitive controls which can be grasped immediately by the operator.
With a lift capacity of up to 17,000 kg this machine is capable of jobs others simply cannot handle.
Comfort and the panoramic view provide optimum working conditions and help contribute to safety during delicate handling operations. You could, for example, transport large pieces of rock or marble at a quarry or handle long components such as steel bars, rails or metallic structures. It's also useful when maintaining mining equipment, changing wheels, replacing cylinders or shifting conveyors.
The annual investment allowance (AIA) will rise to £1 million for two years, chancellor Philip Hammond announced in the recent budget. Hammond said the AIA will rise to £1 million from £200,000, delivering on a long-standing ask of the British Chambers of Commerce. This allowance will be available from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2020. This increase is part of the government’s aim to ‘stimulate business investment’, Hammond said.
The annual investment allowance (AIA) is a capital allowance that enables a business to write off the cost of most items of plant and machinery in full against profits in the year in which the expenditure is incurred.
What qualifies? The AIA is available for most items of plant and machinery. This includes capital items used in the business. All types of construction and industrial equipment qualify.
And what doesn’t? The main exclusion is cars. However, 100% first year allowances are available for new and unused cars with CO2 emissions of 75g/km or less. Where first year allowances are not available, writing down allowances are given at the rate of 18% where the car is new and the CO2 emissions are between 75g/km and 130g/km, or where the car is second-hand and the CO2 emissions are below 130g/m. For cars (new and second-hand) where the CO2 emissions are 130g/km or more, writing down allowances are given at the special rate of 8%.
The AIA allowance can be claimed on equipment which is being purchased using a hire purchase scheme which is why our current promotion is an HP scheme with a 3-month initial ‘holiday’ period before the monthly repayment begin.
Here’s a unique offer from Boss Plant Sales when ‘there’s never been a better time to buy’!
Great machines at competitive prices and 3 months before the first of 36 monthly repayments!
Take a holiday with Boss Plant Sales and treat yourself to a brand-new market leading machine from Kubota, Manitou or BOMAG.
