Lighter compact track loader to debut in April
Feb. 6, 2019 – Kubota Canada Ltd. has unveiled its lightest and most maneuverable compact track loader to date. The SVL65-2 is positioned in a lighter rated operating capacity weight class than previous models in the series.
It features a slide-up overhead front door, a self-leveling function and an Advanced Multifunction Valve (AMV Valve) that provides smooth operation when simultaneous functions are used, such as auxiliary, boom and bucket circuits, allowing operators to get the job done faster. The SVL65-2 boasts a wide working range, including a rated operating capacity of 2,100 pounds at 35 per cent lift or 3,000 pounds at a 50 per cent lift, a reach of 88.65 cm (34.9”) and a hinge pin height of 301 cm (118.5”).
Designed for big jobs in tight workspaces, the SVL65-2 compact track loader is to meet the expectations of construction and landscaping entrepreneurs who have been waiting for its new features that will increase their team’s efficiency. With its high comfort level, the new SVL65-2 will make operators’ work easier while providing them with superior operational control, power and performance.
Small size, big power, performance and reliability
TThe standard self-leveling feature can be engaged with the flip of a switch and keeps the bucket or forks at level without the need to manually adjust the angle. Plus, multi-function levers provide control of all major vehicle and attachment operations at the operator’s fingertip.
Advanced multifunction valve
The AMV valve, makes running any attachment that uses auxiliary hydraulics easy, particularly attachments such as a grapple bucket, a 4 in 1 bucket or a hydraulic auger.
A comfortable operator is a productive operator and while the overall footprint of the new SVL65-2 is smaller, the cab is equivalent in size to the SVL75-2 and SVL95-2s, providing ample room for the operator’s legs and adding to its comfort and convenience. The spacious cab also includes a standard suspension seat that offers outstanding comfort with ergonomically placed armrests on the right and left sides to minimize operator fatigue.
Consistent with the larger models in Kubota’s SVL Series, the SVL65-2 features a sliding front door – its signature and best-selling feature – that can be opened regardless of the position of the bucket or loader arm; plus, full machine operation is possible with the door open, when desired.
“Our newest product in the compact track loaders category further strengthens our construction equipment line,” Yannick Montagano, vice-president of sales and marketing at Kubota Canada Ltd. “The SVL line represents our commitment to quality and safety for all our customers from coast to coast. Offering this smaller-class size compact track loader to Canadian customers and operators makes Kubota a stronger player in this category.”
“Kubota Canada has set the standard in the landscaping and construction market worldwide, raising the bar in engineering innovation, power and performance with user-friendly serviceability in every one of the models of our compact track loader lines,” Bob Hickey, president of Kubota Canada Ltd., said. “With the latest SVL65-2, Kubota carries on with its reputation for quality, comfort and performance, making it an ideal choice for landscapers, rental companies and small contractors.”
The new unit will be available in Kubota dealerships across Canada starting April 15.
