Four new products are included in Kubota Australia's autumn catalogue across agriculture, lifestyle and construction.
The company says its new M5-1 ROPS (rollover protective structure) tractor series, RTV520 utility vehicle and SVL97-2 track loader heightened its focus on comfort, safety and flexibility while the R540 compact wheel loader was Kubota's best compact wheel loader yet.
Kubota general manager for marketing in Australia Malcolm Owens said Kubota's new M5-1 ROPS Series would provide greater flexibility for users working with height restrictions, tight spaces, and uneven surfaces.
"The M5-1 ROPS operator station's advanced simplicity combined with a flat floor allows easy mounting and operation. The shorter stature keeps users in close contact with those around them and prioritises worker welfare," Mr Owens said.
The M5-1 ROPS series featured a 3.8 litre engine that produces horsepower of 93 (69.3 kilowatts) and 103 (76.8kW) on standard and narrow models at the lower engine speed of 2400rpm while six synchronised gears in three ranges provide a wide range of options, he said.
The SVL97-2 track loader replaced the existing SVL95-2s track loader.
Mr Owens said the SVL97-2 kept the same features and specifications while modifications had been made to the cab, diesel exhaust fluid tank (DEF), engine along with design changes to improve quality and function.
"These updates increase the SVL97-2's longevity. The large cabin design features a unique front sliding window and improved sealing ensuring a cleaner cabin environment and better air conditioning," he said.
Mr Owens said the RTV520 utility vehicle had a bold new look, improved suspension and increased engine displacement.
"The new water-cooled two-cylinder engine, with 17.4 horsepower (12.9kW), is just as quiet as the previous model with very little vibration while noise at the operator's ears remains at 83dBA," Mr Owens said.
The all new R540 compact wheel loader replaced the established R065 with a range of new features including a redesigned cabin, multi-function joystick and increased rated operating capacity, he said.
"The added space and simple design in the R540 deliver better visibility and more intuitive operation across both the cab and canopy models.
"Operators can revel in our new pilot-controlled joystick featuring an integrated auxiliary valve switch which creates a smoother experience for the user," Mr Owens said.
