Kubota introduces the new KX080-5 compact exavator with enhanced performance, comfort, and tech features that come standard.

Equipped with a 66.6 horsepower Kubota engine, the KX080-5 features a working range that includes a digging depth of 15 feet 1.1 inches, a maximum dumping height of 17 feet 2.7 inches, and a bucket breakout force of 14,660 pounds. The two-pump load-sensing system improves the overall smoothness of operation when using attachments, letting operators effortlessly perform simultaneous tasks. The auto-shift system goes from high to low depending on traction effort and terrain, providing simultaneous operations when dozing and turning.

A new programmable Engine Auto Stop feature turns off the engine when idling up to 30 minutes, and an Auto Idling System reduces engine speed when high engine speed isn’t needed and the control levers are in neutral for more than 4 seconds.
The deluxe interior has a spacious and comfortable cab with an air suspension seat equipped with a slide that can be double adjusted and the joystick consoles on the left and right sides can be adjusted independent of the seat

A camera displays a fish-eye view of the rear of the machine on the 7-inch LCD monitor while reversing. LED work lights with turn off delay allow the lights to remain on for up to two minutes after the engine is turned off so the operator can exit the machine and worksite under full illumination. The quiet cabin helps to protect the operator from loud engine noise and features an expanded glass area that provides more visibility for loading, unloading, and digging work.
