Kubota launches next-generation R070 and R090 wheel loaders
New machines offer ease and efficiency, without compromising power
18th March 2020 – Kubota, a leading manufacturer of construction and agricultural machinery, today announces the launch of its next-generation wheel loaders, the R070 and R090. The new machines are suitable for use in both construction, agricultural and groundcare environments.
Redesigned inside and out, the new machines are built to get the job done quickly, easily and efficiently. Both the R070 and R090 wheel loaders boast a fully enclosed glass cabin for improved visibility, as well as a more ergonomic control layout. New features include:
Long reach and excellent lifting power ensures superior performance for a wide range of loader tasks. Both machines have a high lifting capacity (R070: 1880 kgf, R090: 2160 kgf), enabling operators to smoothly manoeuvre materials. All major loader functions are on a single RH lever that is easy to operate with just one hand, both on the R070 and R090. The 2-step speed control switch enables the operator to quickly change speeds for optimum efficiency.
Kubota's V2607 direct-injection engine is now fully Stage-V compliant and fuel efficient. Additionally, the new and improved DPF reduces maintenance by increasing the service intervals.
Glen Hampson, Business Development Manager for Construction at Kubota UK, said “We’re really proud to introduce our new and improved wheel loading machines. Both the R070 and R090 are built for enhanced performance, with productivity features and power to spare. They’re also built for safe and simple operation, even by operators with no loader experience.”
“We know our customers want versatile, reliable, low maintenance machines, which is why the R070 and R090 are designed to meet Kubota’s exacting standards of quality and performance. The wheel loaders are designed to be easy to maintain, with areas that require routine maintenance easily accessible for fast and straight forward servicing.”, added Rob Edwards, Business Development Manager for Agriculture at Kubota UK.
KUBOTA a leading manufacturer of construction machinery announces the launch of three new 5-tonne machines. The KX060- 5, U56-5 and U50-5, have been developed in line with customer feedback to ensure the machines are aligning with the demands of the industry. The launch of the three machines means Kubota’s customers continue to have the choice of either a reduced tail swing or the conventional excavator.
Each machine has been designed with the operator in mind, starting with a larger cabin, enhanced insulation, improved visibility, and a multitude of new comfort features. The exterior of the machines has also been redesigned, to give each a modern look. The KX060-5 offers a conventional tail swing which can be used in different applications to the U-series. It is also the machine most suitable to heavier attachments due to the off-set of the conventional tail swing weight.
The U56-5 has a powerful engine and is the largest reduced tail swing machine in the range. The machine is built to have good lifting capacity and will be a great machine for an owner or operator.
The U50-5, which will be available from July, has been designed as an entry-level machine and built for the hire market. The size of the machine means it is well suited to working in smaller spaces and will have excellent site access.
All machines come fitted with the following features:
Glen Hampson, Business Development Manager for Construction at Kubota UK, said: “We’re proud to be welcoming three new models into our 5-tonne range. The new range builds on the success of its predecessors when it comes to how the machines operate and overall functionality. The new machines, however, offer improved comfort and safety to the user. It is important for us here, at Kubota, that we’re providing machines that get the job done, but are also enjoyable and comfortable to use. The KX060- 5, U56-5 and U50-5 are just this.”
