The KX161-3S excavator, available from Kubota Tractor Australia , comes with a three inch rear overhang and offers tight tail swings.
The longer arm, delivers higher reach and digging depth, thereby increasing productivity by reducing the need to frequently reposition the machine when trenching. The higher bucket breakout force is attainable due to the stability created by the overhang.
Lifting capacity is increased due to the higher stability and countered balanced technology. The long tumbler distance, lower centre of gravity and double flanged lower track rollers combine to deliver safe and effective performance when working to the side or with hydraulic attachments or lifting heavy objects. This extra lifting capacity means the minimal tail swing can perform a variety of tasks.
With a powerful 46hp diesel engine, a load sensing hydraulic system, simultaneous four function operation, strong bucket force and smooth boom operation, the KX161-3S excavator makes short work of tough digging and dozing jobs.
Powered by the Interim Tier IV compliant 2.4L diesel engine, the KX161-3S excavator delivers higher horsepower and performance while offering low noise and vibration levels and better fuel economy.
Fitted with Kubota Tractor Australia’s auto idle function, the KX161-3S excavator switches the engine to idle when the control levers are left in neutral for more than four seconds and immediately returns to revving mode upon movement of the control levers. This feature has the benefit of reduced noise and exhaust emissions while simultaneously reducing operating costs.
The KX161-3S excavator is an alternative to zero tail swing excavators. Its operating area reduces operator fatigue. The high-back deluxe suspension seat equipped with armrests and height or spring firmness adjustability can ensure optimum comfort for operators.
A quick flip of the twin pattern selection system (TPSS) switch enables operators to change between ISO and SAE operating patterns without the need for tools or leaving their seats.
The KX161-3S excavator has a large bucket capacity, long reach and formidable digging depth, and makes light work of all job requirements on the construction site. The powerful and responsive front working group handles digging, lifting and loading requirements. Due to its powerful breakout force, the KX161-3S excavator will not slow down when heavily loaded.
