Kubota Tractor Corporation introduced the world to its new SVL95-2s compact track loader at World of Concrete in Las Vegas. The new model offers greater multi-tasking capabilities, more powerful hydraulics and more class-leading comfort upgrades than ever. The SVL95-2s takes the place of the SVL90-2 compact track loader in the Kubota product line-up and is scheduled to arrive at Kubota dealerships nationwide this month.
“Kubota is raising the bar with the introduction of our new SVL95-2s. This new compact track loader offers a heightened level of performance and convenience features,” said Jorge De Hoyos, Kubota senior product manager, skid steers and compact track loaders. “With its more powerful engine, five-way-adjustable high flow hydraulics, 3,200-pound rated operating capacity and quiet, radio-ready interior, the new SVL95-2s offers customers unparalleled levels of utility and refinement.”
Here are some highlights:
Stronger Hydraulics: Five-Way Adjustable, Triple Duty-Capable
With five hydraulic presets available for the operator to choose via an in-cab control, the SVL95-2s, when equipped with the optional high flow, is ideal for jobs that require running more than a single attachment. At the heart of the SVL95-2s is its new, more powerful high-flow hydraulic system, which can be programmed and instantly adjusted at the push of a button to adjust flow rates from as little as 5 to as much as 40 gallons per minute—a 19 percent improvement over previous models—and at line pressures of 3,553 PSI.
Operators can utilize up to three hydraulic circuits in parallel, which control the loader, the bucket and an auxiliary device such as an auger or drill, making the SVL95-2s capable of performing all three functions at once without sacrificing performance. With bucket breakout force of 7,961 lbs. and a unique vertical lift designed to deliver an exceptionally long reach of 40.7 inches, the SVL95-2s provides outstanding performance and productivity, and will prove to be an accomplished and versatile workhorse that’s at home on a variety of job sites.
CRS Diesel Engine: Powerful and Fuel Efficient
Powering the SVL95-2s is a turbocharged, liquid-cooled, four-cylinder diesel engine with a Common Rail System (CRS). In tandem with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR), a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), and a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, the CRS enables the engine to produce 96.4* gross hp while adhering to Final Tier IV emissions standards. The engine’s exceptional performance is matched by its fuel economy; with a 28.8-gallon fuel tank and a 5-gallon Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) tank, the SVL95-2s can run a full eight to 10 hour workday without needing to refuel and a four to five day workweek before a DEF tank refill is needed.
Interior: Convenient Hand/Dial Throttle Control, Radio-Ready Electronics
Inside the cab, the SVL95-2s offers a plethora of new comfort and convenience features including push-button control for the optional high flow hydraulics and a high-back suspension seat that provides enhanced support while minimizing fatigue on long workdays. A wider entrance makes entering and exiting the cab easier, and the hand/dial throttle control is optimal for jobs where constant engine speeds are necessary, such as when trenching or snow-blowing. The interior of the SVL95-2s, when ordered with a cab enclosure, also comes radio-ready—prewired from the factory and equipped with an antenna, speakers and mounting bracket. In addition, the unit is 6 inches longer and thus the radiator fan has been relocated further back to the rear of the vehicle, greatly reducing interior noise.
In all, Kubota’s new SVL95-2s offers prospective buyers an impressive array of features, with marked improvements over previous-generation models in power, functionality, comfort and convenience.
