Kubota has expanded its range of tracked dumpers, with the launch of a new electric model - the KC70VSL-4 e - and the KC110SL-4 diesel machine.

The KC70VSL-4 e (above) has been developed on the base of the KC70H-4 e, boasting a lithium battery pack of 48V and 120Ah. The new model will be a perfect fit for customers working in noise-sensitive sites. The unit has a maximum load capacity of 700kg and is able to transport large quantities of material speedily. The width of the machine is 758 mm (tracks retracted), allowing users to work in tight areas.

The tracks are also electrically powered, and the new machine can be charged totally in three hours - or reach 80% charge in as little as 1.5 hours. A complete charge will allow a full day’s work, however. In addition, the universal fast external battery charger is sold with the machine and works with the following power and tensions - 3kW and from 80V to 240V.

Meanwhile, the new KC110SL-4 (below) is equipped with a front tip skip with a 1200kg capacity and a self-loading device. It has a Kubota D722 Stage 5 engine and can overcome slopes up to 20°.
