What users demanded: o Higher working efficiency as a 4-ton class excavator. o Easy maneuverability on soft ground. o High durability and minimal maintenance requirements. o 5- to 6-tonne range excavators with dozer blade, for side-ditching. This is a compact machine that can complete large excavation and earthmoving work along with small jobs in restrictive areas. KUBOTAs experience in the design and production of compact but powerful equipment made it possible to develop this new fully swinging excavator, the kh-28: The giant among the mullets. The KH-28 is a 5.2 tonne excavator with a swing boom, a bucket with a large capacity of 0.28 cubic meters and many other advanced features.

    The KH-28 can work harder than its compact size suggests. With a bucket width of 650mm (2' 1.59) and a bucket capacity of 0.28 cubic meters, the KH-28 offers the largest capacity of all minis. Maximum digging force corresponds to 3200k9 (7055 lbs.) for the bucket as well as 2550k9 (5622cbs.) for the arm. The powerful hydraulic system of the KH-28 ensures that a 6-ton machine is excavated.fficient boom swinging for precision work ln response to customer demand for a 6-tonne class machine with oscillating boom Kubota developed the 5.2 tonne strong KH-28. The KH-28 ́s Boom rockes up to 50 degrees in both directions. A combination of swing boom and fully curved body makes trouble-free working apart from walls and buildings: In all his work operations...i 28°Spirals are equipped "Kh" like follows."
