New Kubota KC300HR-5 and KC300H-5

Kubota has expanded its range of track dumpers with the launch of two new Stage 5 emissions compliant models. The KC300HR-5 and KC300H-5, are compact and powerful, and are suited to transporting construction materials, particularly on rough terrain. 

Both models have a maximum load capacity of 2,875kg and are capable of transporting large quantities of material in a short time. In the H version, the machine is equipped with a hydraulic, three-sided tiltable loading trough. The maximum tipping angle of this model is 55 degrees, while the tipping angle of the HR version is 84 degrees. In addition, the tipper is equipped with a stepless, hydraulic 180-degree rotation function (HR: hydraulic rotation 90 degrees right and 90 degrees left). With this version, the rotation function can be actuated at the same time as the tipping of the body. This gives the operator the great advantage of being able to unload the bulk material with pinpoint accuracy, which significantly increases the flexibility of the machine. 

The heart of these two models is the liquid-cooled, four-cylinder Kubota diesel engine V2403, which complies with the current European exhaust gas Stage 5 and, if required, provides a high driving speed of up to 11kph, even when loaded. Other design features include a robust crawler chassis that guarantees the operator efficient and comfortable working. Ground clearance is 330mm.

Emphasis was also placed on driver comfort when developing these new track dumpers. The reversible seat allows the driver to turn 180 degrees and face the opposite direction of travel. This allows the driver to quickly and easily adjust his seating position to the corresponding loading direction at all times, even in tight construction sites. Joystick operation and a digital display showing engine and machine data ensure simple and smooth operation and are always in the operator's field of vision, even in reverse gear and with the seat direction adjusted.
