In the midst of one of the largest product introductions in its history, Kubota Tractor Corporation debuted its R065-Series wheel loader at the Australasian Dealer Conference held in September 2016 in Sydney. The impressive new R065-Series brings more features and more power in a bold new design to Kubota’s wheel loader offering, helping power the company’s growth in the construction and agricultural equipment market.
"The R065-Series continues our commitment to high performance in a compact footprint while increasing our ability to meet the power needs of a wider variety of applications,” said Kevin Hamilton, New Zealand Kubota construction equipment Sales Manager. "It’s exactly what our customers expect from Kubota’s expansion in the market.”
The R065 is Kubota’s first entry into the 60-80 horsepower range, raising the standard for Kubota wheel loader performance, and opening up new markets and extended applications. With a 64.4 horsepower engine, the R065 delivers a maximum bucket breakout force of 4,263.6 kgf (41.8 kN). There are two models available with ROPS / FOPS certified canopy or new factory air conditioned cab.
Kubota’s versatile R065-Series offers strength, comfort, and superior operator benefits. The R065 has a high-quality air-conditioned cab, wider entrance for maximum operator space, full suspension seat, and improved visibility. The cab offers lower noise levels, and a lower cab height allows Kubota’s R065-Series wheel loaders to fit in tighter spaces and under eaves.
The R065 features an E-HST (electronic) transmission with four modes – normal mode, attachment mode, power and Eco-modes. Normal mode is compatible with everyday load and carry operations. In attachment mode, the operator can independently control travel speed from flow to the attachments. To save on fuel, Eco-mode conserves fuel up to 15 percent over other modes, while power mode exchanges travel speed for an increase of about 40 percent in traction power to excavate or attack a hard packed pile with ease.
More features and more power come to Kubota’s
wheel loader offering with the introduction of the
all-new R065-Series. The R065 is Kubota’s first
entry into the 60-80 horsepower range, giving
operators the power for a wider variety of applications.
The new R065-Series expands attachment selection with a new hydraulic skid steer style quick coupler and a hydraulic Euro-style coupler. The R065’s hybrid link system provides the best features of the parallel link system and the Z-bar link system, enhancing pallet fork operation, and allowing Kubota customers to enjoy exceptional breakout force to power through tough applications.
