Kubota Canada is diversifying its construction and landscaping equipment lineup with the introduction of the new SVL65-2 compact track loader.
The new compact track loader is positioned in a lighter rated operating capacity weight class than the current SVL75-2 and the SVL95-2 models. The new unit will be available in Kubota Canada dealerships starting on April 15th.
“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,” said Bob Hickey, president of Kubota Canada.
“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.”
Small size, big power
The SVL65-2 is powered by a 68 hp and features a rated operating capacity of 952 kg at a 35 per cent lift or1,360 at a 50 per cent lift, a reach of 88.65 cm and a hinge pin height of 301 cm.
The standard self-levelling feature can be engaged with the flip of a switch and keeps the bucket or forks level, without the need to manually adjust the angle. As well, multi-function levers provide control of all major vehicle and attachment operations at your fingertip.
The SVL65-2 also features an Advanced Multifunction Valve (AMV) for improved multifunctional operation and allows for smooth operation when using simultaneous controls, such as auxiliary, boom and bucket circuits, allowing operators to be more productive throughout their work day.
The AMV valve, makes running any attachment that uses auxiliary hydraulics easy, particularly attachments such as a grapple bucket, a four-in-one bucket or a hydraulic auger.
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 cab also includes a standard suspension seat that offers 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 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.
