Published:  19 January, 2017

Compact construction equipment specialist Kubota will be unveiling its new KX mini-excavator at this year’s Executive Hire Show (EHS 2017) at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.

The new generation machine will be revealed for the first time in the UK on stand A35 at 10am on Wednesday 8th February.

Richard Sayers, Kubota UK’s construction equipment senior dealer manager, said: ‘The KX mini-excavators have proven themselves as a massive success story for Kubota in the plant hire sector over the years, delivering strong performance, long-lasting reliability, fuel efficiency and high residual value.

‘The new KX080-4a mini-excavator has been designed and manufactured to raise the bar even higher, setting a new standard within the industry.’

Other machines on the stand will be the KC70VHD-4 tracked carrier, the U10-3 side lever mini-excavator, the RT210 wheeled loader and the RTV-400 utility vehicle.

The new KX080-4a mini-excavator will be stationed outside the north entrance of the Ricoh Arena and the RT150 wheeled loader is going to be placed near the breakfast dining area.

Kubota will be also unveiling a new engine – the V3800 BG diesel engine – which comes with a powerpack. Other engines will also be on how, including the V3307 diesel powerpack and the WG2503 duel fuel engine.
