Just back from the Kubota dealer meeting, company launches skid steers

As we mentioned earlier this week, Kubota Tractor Corp. had its 2014 Dealer Meeting in Nashville. And despite the constant rain, approximately 4,000 Kubota dealers and employees from the United States and Canada visited the opulent Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center‎ October 12-16 for the unveiling of 90 plus new product introductions. We’ll have a full report in the November/December issue of Compact Equipment’s print edition, but we had to share two big developments — the introduction of skid steers to Kubota’s product line and the launch of new compact wheel loaders.

Kubota will expanding its machine offerings to establish a broader line of construction equipment in 2015, including the new SSV65 and SSV75 skid steers, the company’s first entry into the skid steer market. Each of these two models is built with Kubota quality, reliability and performance. With standard two-speed travel and optional high-flow hydraulics, Kubota’s skid steer offerings will meet the needs of Kubota customers across the construction, rental and agriculture segments. Features include an overhead front door, new multi-function handles for high-flow machines, a side light feature, and optional high-flow hydraulics.

Kubota Tractor Corp. will also add all new R30-Series wheel loaders, the R530 and R630, bringing more features and more power to Kubota’s wheel loader offering. The R530 is the most compact of the new R30 Series, and the R630 with 4-mode HST is Kubota’s first entry into the 60-80 horsepower range, making all application needs possible. Kubota’s versatile R30-Series offers strength, comfort and superior operator benefits, each with a high quality air conditioned cab, large entrance and operator’s space, good tipping load, and each comes equipped with 100 percent on-demand differential lock and multifunction controller.
