force, respectively, and a lifting capacity of 4,881 lb. and  5,869 lb.,

injection, turbo-charged Kubota diesel engine. The vertical lift loader
allows for optimum reach and dumping capabilities. Standard features
include engine stall guard, 2-speed travel, self-levelling lift and a
floor drain outlet for easy cleaning.

Comfort and stability

The SVL's offer a wide cab entrance and an ultra spacious, comfortable
operator area. The roomy operator area features a high-back, fully
adjustable suspension seat and ample leg and elbow room. A
hand-and-foot throttle ensures exceptional versatility and the 2-speed
travel and high ground clearance provide optimal travel performance.
Visibility around the entire machine, and to the tracks and the bucket
edge is clear from the seat. The rigid mount undercarriage and triple
flange track rollers keep operators working confidently on rough or sloped
terrain.

Kubota’s SVL75 and SVL90 feature an easy tilt-up cabin for convenient
access to all hydraulics. Daily maintenance checks for engine oil,
fuel filter, water/fuel separator, air cleaner and coolant level are
simple, and all grease fittings accessible from ground level. A
slide-and-tilt radiator and oil cooler allow for easy cleaning and easy
access to the engine compartment.

Kubota Canada is introducing the SVL Series across the country in its
