Kubota is launching two KX-3 Series mini tracked excavators this year. Joining the 3.2 tonne KX91-3 and 3.5 tonne KX101.3 introduced to the UK last November, the new KX121-3 and KX161-3 are rated at 4 tonnes and 5 tonnes respectively.

Both models are powered by Kubota E-TVCS diesel engines which offer reduced emissions and better fuel economy thanks to their three-vortex combustion system.

Other features of the machines include Kubota's Hydraulic Matching System (HMS) which permits enhanced straight line travel with simultaneous operation of the boom, bucket arm or dozer blade.

In addition to its latest KX-3 Series machines, Kubota will be showing examples from its full range of tracked machines from 800 kg to 7.5 tonnes, as well as compact tractors.
