Kubota KX030-4 GL HI overview

  • Kubota KX 030-4 GL HI features overview

    Powerful digging force
    The KX030-4 delivers an impressive bucket digging force. Its powerful and well-balanced arm and bucket allow the operator to dig quickly, deeply and efficiently even in the toughest of conditions. It provides power combined with excellent stability.
    Excellent visibility
    To help you perform your tasks more efficiently and safely, the KX030-4's cab offers a wide field of vision that enhances your awareness. The extra front and rear visibility from ground level allows you to take sensitive jobs easier in confined spaces minimizing risks for man or object. In addition, all boom hydraulic hoses have been enclosed inside the boom to reduce their damage so they can stay durable over the long term as well as improving your viewing area enabling you to better concentrate on the job.
  • Engine / Driveline and transmission

    1. Kubota original engine
    The KX030-4 is powered by Kubota's tough and reliable engine. Designed with the power to maximize digging and lifting performance, it also delivers minimized noise and vibration as well as meets all current engine emission regulations.
    Standard Equipment Engine/Fuel system
    KUBOTA Genuine Engine, Double Element Air Cleaner, Fuel Level Indicator Buzzer, Battery Isolator, Automatic Fuel Ventilation System, Water Separator
  • Hydraulics

    Simultaneous operation of four functions
    When simultaneous operation of boom, arm, bucket and swing is required, two variable pumps distribute an exact amount of oil flow to each actuator depending on the lever stroke. This process allows continuous high performance digging and dozing.
    Hydraulic system
    2 variable displacement pumps and 1 gear pump, pressure accumulator, hydraulic pressure check ports, Straight travel circuit, Auxiliary Hydraulic Circuit Line up to the arm end, 1. auxiliary circuit (AUX1) via foot pedal control (For Standard-Spec), AUX 1 & 2 proportional flow control of additional circuit (For High-Spec), Adjustable maximum oil flow at AUX1 via digital panel (For High-Spec), adjustable maximum oil flow on AUX2 by dial (For High-Spec), third line hydraulic return.
  • Tyres / Tracks

    Auto shift (High-Spec model only)
    The autoshift system allows automatic travel shift from high to low depending on traction force and terrain. This achieves smoother operations when dozing and turning.
    Compact machine width
    The 1500 mm track width provides all the stability needed for each task while being narrow enough to operate in places where space is limited.
    300 mm rubber track, Short sloped rubber scraper, 2-speed travel, Autoshift (For High-Spec), 3 double flange rail rollers on each track, 1 upper run roller.
