Kubota KX61-3 GL overview

  • Kubota KX61-3 GL features overview

    Wrist rest
    With this new feature to assist with smooth operation and produce less operator fatigue, wrist rests are fitted as standard. Easy adjustments can be made easily, in addition the operation is smoother and low-fatigue.
  • Engine / Driveline and transmission

    Variable displacement pump
    For efficient operation, both the oil flow and pressure from the variable displacement pumps are adapted to the workload. By using variable pumps a more efficient engine is selected which results in fuel efficiency, low vibration and noise levels.
    Low noise level
    When designing the KX61-3, we have continued to focus on being environmentally and user-friendly. Thus, the noise level of the KX61-3 in the cab is an amazingly low 77 db.
    Kubota V1505-EBH engine
    The powerful and reliable Kubota V1505-EBH engine ensures economical and environmentally friendly performance. The engine is so fuel efficient, a full tank gives 10 hours of continuous work.
    Kubota Intelligent Control System
    An innovative upgrade that keeps you always in tune with the vital signs of the KX61-3. Kubota Intelligent Communication Control System is equipped with warning indicators for engine, fuel, temperature and oil; a service mode allowing accurate troubleshooting; as well as standard indicators displaying current working conditions such as engine rpm, hour meter & more.
  • Hydraulics

    Digging arm and bucket
    Equipped with the longest arm, the KX61-3 delivers the largest digging depth and reach of all 2.5-ton class. Even during the long arm specification it still generates the greatest power in its class for both the arm and bucket trenching.
    Boom swing / Auxiliary operation
    For easier operation, the boom swing pedal and auxiliary hydraulic operations are controlled by independent pedals, with one pedal located on the right side of the floor and the other on the left side.
    Hydraulic system
    Pressure accumulator, Hydraulic pressure test, Straight travel circuit, third line hydraulic recirculation.
    Working equipment
    1050 mm Arm, auxiliary hydraulic circuit line to the arm end, 2 working lights on the cab and 1 light on the boom.
  • Tyres / Tracks

    Increased rear visibility
    The KX61-3 has an 18 % reduced overhang with consistent stability like our conventional model. Now, KX61-3 offers increased rear visibility and facilitates operation in confined areas.
    2-speed travel switch
    With the 2-speed travel switch switched from ground to dozer lever, you can enjoy improved dozer operation at changing travel speeds.
