Kubota’s new RT and RO Series wheel loaders made their UK debut at Plantworx, cementing the company’s leading position in the construction equipment industry whilst expanding its already popular range of powerful machinery.
Specially designed to suit a variety of end user applications such as construction, agriculture, gardening and public works, the articulated wheel loaders have been developed to ensure efficiency and flexibility for users.
The latest models introduced to the company’s RT Series line-up incorporate a 45-degree articulation-oscillating angle to make it easy for users to fit through the smallest of spaces without damaging surfaces when carrying out tasks. Hydrostatic transmission and a high performance pump also work together to deliver maximum performance on site.
Heavy-duty axles with a maximum capacity of 12 tonnes allow for a travelling speed of up to 25km per hour on the RT270 and a tipping load of 2600 that rivals that of its competitors.
The RO65 and RO85 wheel loaders have undergone significant developments to offer a long dumping reach and high dumping clearance, allowing users to dump waste into truck beds with complete ease. They are also perfectly suited for pallet fork operations.
Superior breakout force, high levels of manoeuvrability and excellent stability make the RO wheel loaders excellent machines for use in all types of working conditions. A major benefit of the two models is their ability to be transported between job sites securely due to an overall height below 2500mm, allowing the machines to pass easily under road bridges.
Also showcasing at Plantworx was Kubota’s full RT range, which provides all round visibility and extra strong pivoting articulation. The RT series wheel loaders are built to deliver exceptional reliability and versatility on and off site.
Neil Winfield, Kubota Construction’s Business Development Manager, commented: “The new Wheel Loaders have been introduced to the market following extensive work to manufacture machinery that can deliver on performance, ease of operation and comfort.
“Not only have we designed wheel loaders that enhance user performance and safety, we have made significant developments to ensure that the operator can comfortably spend extended periods of time in the cab.”
All of the wheel loaders in the RO and RT Series are fitted with a Kubota Original Engine for a strong and powerful performance and with one of the lowest emission levels on the market. An anti-theft security system is also included on the RO Series as standard.
