Kubota launches extensive NEW 10 model lineup in RT compact articulated Wheeled loader range

Following the recent introduction of two battery-powered RT compact wheeled loaders, Kubota (UK) Ltd has widened the range with the introduction of an additional 10 models, powered by Kubota diesel engines.

Revealed at LAMMA ’24, the extended portfolio includes high-lift and heavy lift specifications, with a range of tipping loads that extends from 550kg up to 1,600kg. Lift heights extend from 2.17m up to 2.96m, while operating weights are from 1,100kg up to 2,900kg. Depending on the model, cab or canopy options are available, with ROPS and FOPS protection.

The diesel-powered RT models have power outputs from 15-36kW from their EU Stage V compliant Kubota engines. The two most powerful models feature a DPF/DOC emissions control module, along with a 6,000-hour service interval.

Compact dimensions are a feature of the RT range, with the narrowest model, the entry-level RT100-2, measuring 920 mm wide. The RT105T-2 features a telescopic boom, increasing its working envelope. The widest model is the range-topping RT280-2, at 1.4m with 31x15.5-15 tyres. Overall height is up to 2.34m, reducing to below 2m when using the folding canopy.

Drive is hydrostatic throughout the range, with the smallest four models using heavy duty Poclain wheel motors. From the RT210-2 upwards, Bosch Rexroth hydrostatic transmission are used to drive mechanical axles, and this enables limited slip or 100% mechanical diff locks to be used to boost traction. Travel speed is up to 30kph, depending on model. RT270&RT280-2

Up to two auxiliary hydraulic circuits available, with one offering proportional control through the multi-function joystick, flow rates vary from 28-51 LPM. Boom float is part of the standard specification, as is a Eurohitch headstock.

Models equipped with a fully-glazed cab include a heater and radio, plus road lighting kit and rear-view mirrors. Engine service intervals are every 500 hours, and all models are offered with a two-year, 2,000-hour warranty.
