Kubota 8 Tonne Excavator

The Kubota 8 Tonne Excavator (KX080-3) available from RAM Equipment is ideal for urban environments where space is limited. Work in the comfort of a luxury cab and feel peace of mind with clever features that ensure operator safety, increase productivity and keep operating costs to a minimum.

Tackle almost anything

The Kubota 8 Tonne Excavator features a tight-tail swing radius with a smooth, harmonised, hydraulic system for versatility.

Furthermore, with the KX080-3S, elevated productivity levels are certain with the combination of 6,650 kg bucket force and 3,880 kg arm forces.

Lastly, save money, time and personnel with a high-capacity dozer blade – no separate machines required.

High performance in tight spots

This compact excavator is designed with a shorter rear overhang. Thanks to the contoured, tight tail design, the 8-tonne excavator is more stable, can handle a wider range of loads, and can work in more restrictive spaces than traditional tail swing excavators.

In addition, its compact 2,200-metre width makes it ideal for working in close conditions, and much
easier to transport between job sites.

Ultimate comfort

Designed and engineered with comfort in mind, Kubota’s high-back suspension seat reduces strain and minimises operator fatigue. It reclines to accommodate your posture and offers weight compensation, firm arm support, and retractable seat belts.

With features like a cup holder, digital control panel, easy open front window, and air conditioning, this mid-sized excavator truly puts the operator in the driver seat.

Kubota KX series

The Kubota KX series are amongst the toughest excavators available on the market today. Delivering superior performance and luxury comfort, the Kubota KX series has an excavator to meet every operator’s needs.
