Kubota has just announced a new LPG powered mini-excavator enabling you to enjoy all the benefits of a clean and quiet LPG engine as well as all the comfort and performance you need in a powerful, reliable, low maintenance mini-excavator. This new model is ideal for remote places, locations with restricted access, and for working in low emission zones.
Powered by Kubota’s stage 5 compliant WG972 -L-E4 spark ignition engine delivering high levels of productivity, low emissions, lower noise levels, and far less toxicity than petrol or diesel. Emissions are just 5% of a diesel or petrol engine for cleaner performance. A single tankful of LPG is enough for a full day’s work, depending on the working environment. Refuelling is quick and easy using standard equipment and gas bottles.
An auxiliary circuit comes as standard, with easy control of proportional, constant, and maximum oil flow settings.
The track width is variable for easy access through spaces less than a metre wide, while still providing a stable platform delivering up to 2.5m digging depth.
Kubota’s new propane engine has no DPF filter to clean or replace, no need for combustion regeneration, less strain on the engine, and reduced engine maintenance to minimise downtime.
A wide door makes entry and exit easy, while the flat floor, ample legroom, and adjustable suspension seating in a large cab make even long shifts comfortable. The Kubota Intelligent Control System’s digital panel is also easy to use.
ROPS (Roll Over Protective Structure), TOPS (Tip-Over Protective Structure) and OPG (Operator Protective Guard) Level 1. A hard cover protects the onboard LPG tank from exposure to sunlight or contact with other objects.
