Certain Kubota excavators can cope with tasks where manoeuvrability and compactness are both key, while others are designed to offer raw power and traction where restrictions on movement do not exist. They are also created with quality and resilience in mind, which is why buying a used unit is entirely feasible. The scaled-down KX Series models are small, safe and efficient, with the range also incorporating heavy duty models. The same goes for the U Series and so rather than waiting for a newly ordered Kubota excavator to arrive, you may be better off investing in a used model that can do just as good a job.
Starting things off is the K008-3, which Kubota has built with operator safety at the top of the agenda. This mini excavator comes with an E-TVCS engine which produces lower emissions than rival power plants, while also keeping unwanted noise and vibrations to a minimum, enhancing usability and operator comfort. It features a rollover protection bar which is built to allow for easy transport thanks to a foldaway mechanism. This even helps when squeezing the excavator through narrow passages and doorways, letting it get to places that others cannot penetrate.

The U10-3 is another of Kubota's mini excavators, which this time is fashioned into a zero tail swing setup that benefits from many of the same comfort and safety features as its KX Series equivalent. The track gauge can be reduced to just 750 millimetres, which helps it to make narrow manoeuvres while still being able to offer lots of traction and stability once it has squeezed through the gap in question. Meanwhile the improved hydraulic system and controls can increase productivity by almost a tenth compared with older models. Because the body will stay within the width of the tracks no matter how it rotates, there is no need for the operator to worry about whether or not it will get damaged during operation.
The top tier of the KX Series of excavators from Kubota is occupied by the KX080-4, which has been engineered to operate economically and with a degree of sensitivity to the surrounding environment which might not usually be associated with this type of machinery. The direct injection diesel engine is quiet, compact and provides plenty of power without wasting fuel, with up to an 18 percent improvement in efficiency available when the eco mode is activated. The cab comes with a deluxe suspension seat that helps to prevent the operator from becoming fatigued, as well as comfort features such as air conditioning to keep the temperature pleasant throughout the year. With a bucket capacity of 0.25 cubic metres and modern hydraulics controlling the boom, this is a manageable machine with an operating weight of 8270kg.
Safe, affordable and well known in the UK, Kubota excavators dig deep, last long and live up to a hard earned reputation. So when buying used look out for smooth, consistent operation of the hydraulics as well as general upkeep in the cabin and the underlying machinery.
