Kubota UK has strengthened and expanded its market leading range of compact construction equipment with the launch of its new R082 wheel loader.
Specifically designed with the optimum balance of size, power and comfort, Kubota’s R082 delivers maximum levels of productivity and efficiency, allowing operators to tackle a wide range of loading, lifting and moving tasks with ease.
Powered by a robust 47.3 PS Kubota diesel engine, world renowned for its reliability and low fuel consumption, the rugged and durable R082 is one of the most cost-effective in the Kubota range, enabling users to get more done in less time.
Adrian Mann, Kubota UK’s product manager for its Construction Equipment Division, said: “The launch of the new R082 further strengthens our range of high quality construction machines. It’s a powerful machine that features excellent breakout force and superior maneuverability and stability to deliver outstanding performance and productivity.”
The R082 has a long dumping reach and high dumping clearance to make all types of loading jobs fast and efficient whether using a bucket or pallet forks. A key feature of the loader’s functionality is its arm’s tilt/parallel movement, keeping loads upright when raising or lifting the arm, as well as its differential lock system, which gives the operator the ability to engage both the front and rear wheels for slip free traction. Performance is enhanced further with a simple AUX hold switch, which sets and maintains the hydraulic oil flow for implements.
In addition to the performance of the machine, the R082 has also been designed with complete user comfort in mind. The loader’s operator station offers all the functions and amenities users need to keep working in comfort all day long. Its intuitive digital display panel, adjustable suspension seat, multi-function operating lever, tilt steering, and adjustable right wrist rest provide the ideal cabin environment for users to work long hours with minimal effort.
With a high visibility cabin, the machine provides improved views from all directions. The rear of the cabin features rounded glass corners that, when combined with its sloped bonnet, provide excellent visibility when reversing. Up front, a wide view and redesigned Z-bar linkage configuration allows for unobstructed views of the pallet fork tips.
Maintenance on the R082 is a straightforward task, the engine bonnet at the rear opens wide, providing quick and easy access to the machine’s main service areas. Items that require routine maintenance and service are within easy reach for fast and simple servicing.
For security, the loader is also fitted with Kubota’s reliable anti-theft system, only programmed keys will enable the engine to start up and any attempt to start the machine with an unprogrammed key will activate its alarm.
