Kubota Enters Compact Track Loader Market
TORRANCE, Calif. (June 29, 2010) – Kubota Tractor Corporation announces the arrival of its new, eagerly awaited, compact track loader series, with the introduction of the 75-horsepower SVL75 and the 90-horsepower SVL90 models. Powered by efficient Kubota engines, the new compact track loaders are all-Kubota designed, engineered, and manufactured to deliver exceptional reliability, durability and quality that operators have come to expect from Kubota.
“The addition of the compact track loaders to the Kubota product line, at selected Kubota dealers, offers customers an efficient, rugged, highly maneuverable track loader that only Kubota could make,” says Greg Embury, Kubota vice president, sales and marketing. “The Kubota track loaders are different from our competitors because they are created exclusively from Kubota engineered and manufactured components in a specific track loader design. The SVL75 and SVL90 models offer customers a new dimension in Kubota quality and versatility to add to their equipment selection. Kubota is involved in each and every aspect of these machines, and we are proud of what these compact track loaders can deliver to our customers in terms of machine quality, innovation and value.”
Outstanding Power and Performance
Both Kubota compact track loader models deliver best-in-class bucket breakout force and exceptional lifting capacity to provide outstanding performance and productivity. The 74.3-gross horsepower SVL75 boasts a 6,204-pound bucket breakout force and a 4,881-pound lifting capacity. The 90-gross horsepower SVL90 has a bucket breakout force of 7,961 pounds and a lifting capacity of 5,869 pounds. Both models are powered by a four-cylinder, direct injection, turbo-charged Kubota diesel engine. Kubota’s versatile compact track loaders are equipped with a rigid-mount undercarriage and a vertical lift designed for long reach and maximum lifting and dumping capabilities. A variety of performance-matched attachments are available for the SVL75 and SVL90, including several bucket options with teeth or straight edges, 4-in-1 buckets, pallet forks and more.
Exceptional Comfort and Stability
The new Kubota SVL75 and SVL90 compact track loaders offer a wide cab entrance and a spacious, comfortable operator area. The roomy operator area features a high-back, fully adjustable suspension seat and ample leg room. A hand-and-foot throttle ensures exceptional convenience. Both models are equipped with two-speed travel and high ground clearance for optimal travel performance on rough construction site terrain. The overall design is built to ensure stability and comfort in uneven terrain.
Easy Maintenance and Durability
Kubota’s SVL75 and SVL90 are designed with time-saving maintenance in mind, featuring an easy tilt-up cabin for convenient access. Daily maintenance checks for engine oil dipstick, fuel filter, water/fuel, air cleaner and coolant level are simple, and greasing the machine is also easy with all grease fittings accessible from ground level. A slide-and-tilt radiator and oil cooler are simple to reach because it requires the removal of only four bolts to be tilted for easy cleaning. In addition, Kubota’s compact track loaders were designed to sustain hard work and heavy loads; the main frame and undercarriage are a one-piece, welded unit to provide uncompromised structural strength.
