Security key


Kubota has become the first excavator manufacturer to offer an individual electronic key as standard issue on its 1.5 to 5.5-tonne minis. The factory-fitted anti-theft system's keys are programmed to work like a conventional ignition key.

If another key is used, the fuel, hydraulic and electric systems are immobilised and an alarm will sound.
