Kubota launch new compact wheel loader
Latest R082 machine offers high productivity, increased efficiency and reduced fuel consumption
KUBOTA UK have expanded their range of compact construction equipment with the launch of the new R082 wheel loader. Specifically designed with the optimum balance of size, power and comfort, the compact loader delivers high levels of productivity and efficiency, allowing operators to tackle a wide range of loading, lifting and moving tasks with ease.
Powered by a Kubota diesel engine (47.3PS), the R082 has a long dumping reach and high dumping clearance to make all types of loading jobs fast and efficient whether using a bucket or pallet forks.
A key feature of the R082 is the machine’s arm tilt/parallel movement that keeps loads upright when raising or lifting the arm. The R082 is also equipped with a differential lock system, which gives the operator the ability to engage both the front and rear wheels for slip-free traction. Performance is enhanced further with a simple AUX hold switch, which sets and maintains the hydraulic oil flow for implements.
As well as the impressive performance, the R082 has also been designed with complete user comfort in mind. The operator station offers all the functions and amenities users need to keep working in comfort all day long. It features an intuitive digital display panel, adjustable suspension seat, a multi-functional operating lever, tilt steering and adjustable right-wrist rest.
With a high-visibility cabin, the rear of the cabin features rounded glass corners that, when combined with its sloped bonnet, provide superior visibility when reversing.
For easier maintenance on the R082, the engine bonnet at the rear opens wide, providing quick and simple access to the machine’s main service areas. The wheel loader also comes with Kubota’s reliable anti-theft system for added security.
Adrian Mann, product manager for Kubota UK’s construction equipment division, said: ‘The launch of the new R082 further strengthens our range of high-quality construction machines. It is a powerful machine that features excellent breakout force and superior maneuverability and stability to deliver impressive performance and productivity.’
