A dynamic duo

January 15, 2010  By  Mike Jiggens

The first of Kubota’s Dash 4 Super Series, the KX057-4 and the new U55, are taking their industry leading excavator line to new heights. These 6 ton models have been significantly re-engineered with more strength, stability, comfort and standard features.

The spacious cab features a wider entrance, improved climate control, more foot space and a repositioned and advanced instrument panel. In addition to standard operating information, the panel features service/maintenance information, operation history, warning alarms, and controls for many of the excavator features.

Other standard features include a dozer blade with float function, two auxiliary hydraulic ports with adjustable flow, air conditioning, anti-theft system, refuelling signal, and performance matched load sensing hydraulics.

The KX057-4 and U55 are both available with an angle blade option.
