Kubota Mini Diggers (Mini Excavators)
Kubota manufactures construction equipment, offering a variety of tools to the contractor. If one is looking for a Kubota mini excavator
, good model choices include the KX41 series, which have a variable width undercarriage, meaning the tracks narrow to the machine’s width of 990mm (39”) or spread out to 1300 mm (51.2”) as needed for stability. Another slim model is the Kubota mini digger KX36-2, fixed at 990 mm (39”), great for squeezing into backyards and such.
The Kubota excavators
U Series offers a bit larger machine, longer reach, and more auxiliary power for attachments. For example the U45 offers a digging depth of 3850 mm (151”), quite a bit for a Kubota compact excavator.
As far as Kubota backhoe loaders
go, a popular choice in the U.S. market is the Kubota R520 series, a great machine in a wholesale yard/nursery type environment, coupled with the backhoe option. If you’re in search of a used Kubota, be sure to check the manufacturer’s website to learn about ‘grey market’ Kubotas, built for the Japanese market and not intended for export. While the price may be attractive, getting parts and support down the road may be tough. When you’re looking for a Kubota digger be sure to arm yourself with knowledge in order to purchase the right tool for your work.
