New Kubota Excavator

        New for 2013 is Kubota’s KX040-4 featuring Kubota’s “Eco-Plus” mode.
Kubota’s new four-ton KX040-4 packs superior performance, versatility and comfort into one compact machine.  The new excavator leads the pack this year and replaces the KX121-3, Kubota’s single most popular model. The KX040-4 prioritizes the economy and supports the environment with its “Eco-Plus” system, giving operators the option of “eco mode” for up to 20 percent less fuel consumption than prior models. For applications that require full power, operators can switch to standard mode and still experience improved efficiency and lower fuel consumption.
     Kubota’s auto idling system also conserves fuel. When the control levers are in the neutral position for more than four seconds, the engine RPM automatically idles. Move any control lever and the engine RPM immediately returns to the preset level. This innovative feature reduces noise and exhaust emissions while reducing operating costs.
     Keith Rohrbacker, Kubota construction equipment product manager had this to say about Kubota construction equipment.
     “Upgrade, innovate and expand are three words that describe Kubota’s approach to the construction market this year. We have upgraded several of our existing lines to include Tier IV engines, improved serviceability, and updated/repositioned control panels for greater ease of use. From excavators to newly introduced compact track loaders, we have introduced a lot of exciting equipment this year that is sure to motivate construction contractors nationwide.”
