Kubota Technology (KX121-3 & the 6-In-1 Blade)

     Kubota’s new hydraulic six in one blade can be angled right and left, and now, tilted as well.  This new blade enables six different positions:  neutral, float-up, left-end-up, right-end-up, left-end forward and right-end forward.  This feature makes leveling and backfilling work incredibly easy.  Now operators can be even more productive on inclines and uneven terrain.
     The hydraulic six in one blade has a full ten degrees of tilt, making it ideal for landscaping on slopes and swells.  Contractors will find this diverse blade perfect for shaping foundations and finish work.  When compared to the Komatsu PC40MR-2 it out-performs in traction force, blade performance and operating weight.
     One might think that such a complex blade would be difficult to operate but it isn’t.  The blade is operated with an easy single lever and a push of a button.  The blade is angled by moving the lever right or left.  To tilt the blade simply press the “T” button on top of the lever.
     The six in one blade comes standard on the KX121-3 which will only be available for a limited time.  This model which uses a tier three engine is being replaced by the KX040-4.  So, get more for less while inventory lasts at Great Plains Kubota.
