Kubota Canada Ltd., the Canadian marketer and distributor of Kubota tractors and equipment, announced in November that it will be adding two new models to its compact wheel loader lineup. The new R530 and R630 have been designed emphasizing comfort and efficiency and will be equipped with powerful Kubota diesel engines and advanced features, the company says.
All new inside and out, the two new models will feature a choice of a four-post ROPS/FOPS canopy or deluxe factory cab with air conditioning. The new factory cab will feature low noise levels and high visibility along with fresh and modern styling and a lower cab height. The ergonomic interior layout will be packed with standard features including suspension seat, tilt steering, exterior mirrors, lights, and digital display, Kubota says in a news release.
The R530 will feature a Kubota 51 H.P. Tier 4 final diesel engine using a common rail system (CRS) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) coupled to its tried and true hydrostatic transmission (HST). A 64.4 H.P. version of the engine will power the R630 but it will use an advanced electronic hydrostatic transmission (E-HST) offering 4 different operating modes which will allow the operator to choose the most suitable mode depending on the machine application.
The R30 series loaders will showcase Kubota’s new hybrid link system which blends the best features of parallel linkage and Z-bar systems and will allow operators to lift fully loaded pallets up and down while keeping the loads level and at the same time, giving full breakout force when in bucket mode, the news release says. A choice of either skid steer or euro type hydraulic coupler will be available on both models with bucket sizes starting at .85 cu.yd for the R530 and 1.0 cu.yd for the R630
Both R30 series wheel loaders will be available with either standard R4 bias, industrial L-2 radials or Nokian radials with TRI 2 tread design for traction in snow applications exclusive to Canadian customers.
