Kubota Tractor Corporation is expanding its SVL compact track loader lineup with the introduction of the new SVL97-2.
The new compact track loader delivers increased productivity alongside new technology and an enhanced Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) system.
The new SVL97-2 replaces Kubota’s popular SVL95-2s and is expected to be available at Kubota dealerships this month.
“Kubota’s new SVL97-2 sets the bar for our compact track loader line with standard equipped telematics, rearview camera, lockable DEF door and a newly redesigned DEF System,” said Patrick Baker, Kubota’s construction equipment product manager.
“Our SVL line has been a core product offering within the construction equipment marketplace, and the enhancements available on this unit keep Kubota at the top of its game.”
The new SVL97-2 features a 96 hp engine with a rated operating capacity of 1,451 kg at 35 per cent tipping load. The compact track loader also delivers 3,611 kg of breakout force, as well as about 1 metre of reach at maximum height.
Furthermore, the new SVL97-2 track loader comes standard with telematics, delivering the ability to monitor the machine’s health and location to provide peace of mind and added protection.
The rear-view camera is also standard, and can be set to display constantly or only when the machine is moving in reverse, allowing for better rear visibility and increased operator comfort.
The track loader is also available with optional front LED work lights for more efficient and safer work during the night and in any low light condition.
Enhanced DEF system
Other improvements made by Kubota to the track loader include a significantly improved DEF system. The DEF system has been re-engineered to ensure long-term reliability and productivity.
Kubota also improved the sealing of the compact track loader’s cab, reducing the amount of dust, water and debris entering the operating space. The upgrade is designed to give end-users a cleaner and more efficient work environment.
