Kubota’s new U27-4 tight tail swing excavator features adjustable auxiliary flow hydraulics, an auxiliary diverter valve, two-speed automatic downshift travel, and best-in-class reach and dig depth. The U27-4 also boasts one of the largest operator stations in its class with a tight tail swing design. An enclosed cab option with heat is also available.
The tight tail swing design on the U27-4 allows the compact excavator to maneuver and work in tight spaces where larger equipment can’t fit. The excavator delivers a digging depth of 9 feet, 5 inches and a bucket digging force of 7,014 lbs. It features powerful digging force combined with the ability to simultaneously operate the pilot-controlled hydraulic functions, making the workday more efficient and productive.
The U27-4 is powered by a Kubota Tier 4 Final diesel engine, which is designed to minimize noise and vibration. The auto-shift feature automatically shifts travel speed from high to low, depending on traction and terrain, allowing for smoother operation. In addition, a third-line hydraulic return system allows oil flow directly to the tank when working with one-way hydraulic attachments such as a breaker or brush cutter. This simple flow return system provides greater flow efficiency, reduced back pressure, and less heat, according to Kubota.
The tight tail swing excavator will be available at Kubota dealerships later this spring.
