The new KX101-3α4 Hi-Spec and U27-4 Hi-Spec machines were exhibited in the UK for the first time at Hillhead. The company has also launched a new conventional KX101-3α4, which replaces the existing KX101-3α3 model.
The two new Hi-Spec versions of the KX101-3α4 and popular U27-4 excavators include a number of enhancements, such as the inclusion of extra hydraulic pipes for powering auxiliary equipment. The two independently acting proportional control circuits are designed to allow the new machines to power a greater variety of attachments.
The new U27-4 Hi-Spec and KX101-3α4 Hi-Spec also feature factory fitted tie down points to meet European legislation, whilst the machines have also been restyled around the superstructure panels and counterweight.
Neil Winfield, Kubota Construction’s Business Development Manager, said: “Today, machines are required to work as hard as possible to maximise their return on investment. It’s not just about how well an excavator can dig, operators are also using them to carry out a wide range of tasks using a variety of attachments. That’s the reason why we have launched these two new Hi-Spec models with the extra auxillary lines.”
