Kubota to show new KX030-4 mini-excavator at Hillhead

Published:  31 May, 2018

Kubota UK will be showing its range of compact construction equipment at this year’s Hillhead show, including mini-excavators, wheeled loaders and tracked dumpers.

At the heart of the stand (Stand W3) will be the new KX030-4 mini-excavator featuring several innovative features, including two hydraulic variable pumps and a gear pump to allow smooth, synchronised digging and dozing operations for improved output and productivity.

The large flat floor space, full suspension seat and Kubota’s intuitive ergonomic control panel come as standard in the large cabin with high visibility for reduced operator fatigue.

Glen Hampson, business development manager at Kubota UK’s construction division, said: ‘As one of the leading suppliers of construction equipment, Hillhead provides us with the ideal platform to not only highlight the breadth of our product range and how we can meet the needs of the industry, but also the array of aftersales support and maintenance services on offer to contractors and owner operators.

‘Hillhead is always a highlight in the calendar and the team and I are very much looking forward to meeting existing and potential new customers to provide expert advice on their machinery requirements.’

Representatives from Trakm8, which provides telematics solutions to Kubota, will also be on stand to offer fleet efficiency and security advice.
