Specialising in compact, tracked dumpers, Kubota offers vehicles which can carry small loads across rough terrain without breaking a sweat. Second hand models represent a worthy investment, especially if they are well maintained and appropriately priced. And with rubber tracks these models can be deployed in many environments, with capacities ranging from around 700kg to over 4000kg.
The more compact dumpers on offer from Kubota will not feature a full cab, but instead provide an uncovered seat for the operator to occupy. This reduces weight and allows for efficient operation, while also boosting visibility. The RG range is comprised of many manageable dumpers, with recent updates improving pulling power. If you are buying second hand, checking the condition of the tracks is essential.

The rubber can suffer from serious wear and tear over hours of use on rugged surfaces, so assess whether or not replacement will be necessary in the near future. The RG15 is a tracked dumper that weighs just 1.5 tonnes and benefits from a roll bar as well as a drop side body that makes loading and unloading easy. With hydraulics allowing the loadbed to be tipped up for quick dumping, paired with the overall unobtrusiveness of the design, this is an inexpensive and appealing machine to choose, especially as a used bargain.
For a larger, higher capacity dumper than retains the tracked design for which Kubota is known, the RG60 may be a good choice. It features a full cab with glazing to protect the operator from the elements. And if it is going to be used in various weather conditions on a site that can succumb to slipperiness then it will be a more comfortable and convenient variant of this firm's dumpers. This range has been around for many years and has undergone refinement in the interim, meaning it is necessary to check the specifications of a used model carefully to establish which features it offers and the kinds of power and capacity that will be at your disposal if you purchase it.
Kubota's range extends to include the RY series of walk behind dumpers, which are the smallest of all and still offer excellent performance away from the tarmac thanks to the presence of rubber tracks. For moving heavy loads without relying on muscle power and a wheelbarrow, while still being able to get through narrow areas and into hard to reach spots, this kind of machine may be ideal. Just make sure that you can see through any superficial signs of regular use and work out whether a second hand model is still worth considering.
Buying a Kubota dumper for use on a construction site, industrial area or warehouse environment will be a priority for many organisations. And with reliable diesel engines and models dating back over a decade available, there are used dumpers from Kubota which offer the best of both worlds when it comes to both day to day performance and value for money; an excellent combo when working with a tight budget.
