Kubota diversifies its construction equipment line with the introduction of two skid steer loaders, the new SSV65 and SSV75.
Several innovative features on the Kubota SSV-Series are standard on all Kubota SSV models is a unique, slide-up, front-entry door that rises overhead, instead of swinging out. This design allows the door to be opened regardless of loader position so that the operator can enter and exit the machine even when the skid steer is in a tight or difficult position. Other standard features include a spacious, dust-resistant pressurized cabin with an optimized climate control system, and a side light that allows better visibility and safer operation at night. In addition, an optional multi-function lever feature is available, allowing for fingertip control of major machine and implement functions.
The SSV-Series is powered by an EPA Tier 4 certified four-cylinder Kubota diesel engine. With standard two-speed travel and optional high-flow hydraulics, Kubota’s vertical lift geometry skid steers will meet the needs of Kubota customers across the construction, rental and agriculture segments. The SSV65 boasts a rated operating capacity of 1,950 pounds and bucket breakout force of 4,839 pounds; the SSV75 has a rated operating capacity of 2,690 pounds and bucket breakout force of 5,884 pounds. The loaders on the SSV-Series are easily capable of dumping into a dump truck with 10-foot sides. The SSV65 and SSV75 feature hand-and-foot controls, and pilot control models are expected to join the lineup next year.
