Kubota’s four-ton KX040-4 replaces the KX121-3, Kubota’s single most popular model. The KX040-4 prioritizes the economy and supports the environment with its “Eco Plus” system, giving operators the option of “eco mode” for up to 20% less fuel consumption than prior models. For applications that require full power, operators can switch to standard mode and still experience improved efficiency and lower fuel consumption.
The KX040-4 also boasts auto downshift travel motors, which shift automatically to improve productivity; operators will benefit from smooth turns and faster backfilling. The KX040-4 has a 42.4 gross hp engine, a dumping height of 12 feet, 9.5 inches and a digging depth of 11 feet, 2.6 inches. Other features include a Tier IV certified Kubota engine, an automatic regeneration system, and the popular angle dozer blade option, which speeds up finish work and features a float function and bolt-on cutting edges.
