Kubota Canada Limited announced three additions to its construction lineup: SCL1000 stand-on track loader, K008-5 conventional tail swing excavator and U10-5 zero tail swing excavator.

“Kubota has an unwavering commitment to the compact construction market,” said Jonathan Gardner, Product Manager, Construction Equipment, Kubota. “With the new K008-5 and the U10-5, we now have a broad offering of 13 compact excavator models across the 1-to-8-ton weight class and feature more flexibility among the conventional and zero tail swing lines. And, while we took our time to engineer the SCL1000, this inaugural product now allows us to compete and fill requests in the stand-on track loader marketplace.”

The new SCL1000 features a 9.8-inch track that comes standard on the overall narrow 36-inch machine. The integrated track design is engineered for durability with the undercarriage welded to the mainframe of the body. The grease track tension design includes seal oiled bath rollers. Its wide track design, with a rating of 4.0 psi, is low impact.

Aligned with the rest of Kubota’s excavator lineup, the K008-5 and U10-5 offer single-level maneuverability with hydraulic adjustable track widths that contract to fit through tight spaces; thin doorways, fence gates, and inside buildings, hallways and elevators. On the K008-5, the tracks adjust down to 2 feet 4 in. and the U10-5 contracts to 2 ft. 6 in., then, when increased stability is needed, widen out to 2 ft. 10 in. and 3 ft. 3 in.


“The U10-5 is Kubota’s answer to the rental or professional customer,” said Gardner. “No matter how far you turn, the tail on the U10-5 remains within the width of the tracks to ensure excellent balance, stability and fast operation. It truly is the ideal model for working in the tightest, most compact spaces.”
