New Kubota track dumpers feature Stage V engines
By Belinda Smart06 April 2021
Kubota has expanded its track dumper range with the launch of two new models suited to rough terrain.
The KC300HR-5 and KC300H-5, are “compact and powerful and are ideal for transporting construction materials quickly and efficiently.”
Glen Hampson, Construction Division Manager at Kubota, said; “These two KC300H-5 and HR-5 models are an exciting new addition to our track dumper range and the result of years of experience and continuous investment in new product development.
“The KC300-5 meets the latest European Stage V diesel emissions regulations and combines power and speed with unbeatable flexibility - all in a compact design.”
Both dumpers have a maximum load capacity of 2,875 kg. The KC300H-5 is equipped with a hydraulic three-sided tiltable loading trough and has a maximum tipping angle of 55°.
Meanwhile the maximum tipping angle of the HR version is 84° and it is also equipped with a stepless, hydraulic 180° rotation function (HR - hydraulic rotation 90° right / 90° left). This model’s rotation function can be activated at the same time as the tipping of the body. This allows the operator to unload material with a high level of accuracy, which increases the flexibility of the machine.
Both models feature the liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engine V2403, which complies with the current European exhaust gas stage V. The four-cylinder diesel engine provides the operator with “a wide power spectrum in all working situations” and, if required, a high driving speed of up to 11 km/h, even when loaded.
“Other design features include a robust crawler chassis that guarantees the operator efficient and comfortable working. Ground clearance is 330 mm, ensuring avoidance of obstacles and making machine use on uneven terrain much easier.”
Kubota says both machines have been designed for driver comfort, featuring a reversible seat that allows the driver to quickly adjust the seating position to the corresponding loading direction at all times, up to 180 degrees in the opposite direction of travel if needed. Other key features include joystick operation and a highly visible digital display showing engine and machine data.
