The KX018-4 delivers an impressive bucket digging force. Its powerful and well-balanced arm and bucket allow the operator to dig faster and more efficiently even in the toughest conditions.
The KX018-4?s superior stability is due to its long tumbler distance and wide variable track width. It enables you to safely perform jobs using a host of Kubota attachments. And Kubota?s unique hydraulic system, together with a powerful boom cylinder, delivers the lifting power you need to broaden your range of lifting jobs. Combined, you get an advanced hydraulic system that automatically regulates and distributes the optimum amount of oil to each cylinder, based on the weight of the load for smooth, responsive and stable lifting capacity and overall operation.
To optimize stability when using heavy attachments, the KX018-4 tracks can be expanded to a maximum of 4’3.2″ and retracted to 3’3.0″ to make passing through narrow doorways and tight work possible. Either adjustment can be made in just seconds by operating the independent track gauge lever.
Following the excellence of Kubota?s Intelligent Control System, the new digital panel puts convenience at the operator?s fingertips. The user-friendly digital panel is positioned to the front right corner of the operator for better visibility, and features one-touch button operation to view the time, hour meter and tachometer. Warning lamps with code numbers on the display will alert you in case of emergencies such as overheating, hydraulic problems or low battery.
With easier access, simpler settings, easy-to-read indicators and alerts, you?ll always be aware of the excavator?s functioning status.
