Kubota launches next‐generation R070 and R090 wheel loaders

New machines offer ease and efficiency, without compromising power

Kubota, the world leader of construction machinery, announces the launch of its next‐generation wheel loaders, the R070 and R090. The new machines are suitable for use in both pastoral and urban environments.

Redesigned inside and out, the new machines are built to get the job done quickly, easily and efficiently. Both the R070 and R090 wheel loaders boast a fully enclosed glass cabin for improved visibility, as well as a more ergonomic control layout.

New features include:

  • High visibility cabin
  • Enlarged glass surface
  • Full opening right window
  • Air conditioning (optional)
  • New lift arm design
  • Adjustable right wrist rest
  • Digital display
  • Large foot space
  • Full suspension seat
  • Tilt steering

Long reach and excellent lifting power ensures superior performance for a wide range of loader tasks. Both machines have a high lifting capacity (R070: 1880 kgf, R090: 2160 kgf), enabling operators to smoothly manoeuvre materials onto a wide range of trucks. All major loader functions are on a single lever that is easy to operate with just one hand, both on the R070 and R090. The 2‐step speed control switch enables the operator to quickly change speeds for optimum efficiency.

Equipped with CRS and DPF, Kubota's V2607 direct‐injection engine is now fully Stage‐V compliant. Additionally, the new and improved DPF reduces maintenance by increasing the service intervals for both the regeneration filter and ash cleaner.

Keigo Watanabe, Director of the Construction Machinery Division at KUBOTA EUROPE SAS, said “We’re really proud to introduce out new and improved wheel loading machines. Both the R070 and R090 are built for enhanced performance, with productivity features and power to spare. They’re also built for safe and simple operation, even by operators with no loader experience.”

“We know our customers want reliable, low maintenance machines, which is why the R070 and R090 are designed with inbuilt, dependable security features. The wheel loaders are designed to be easy to maintain, with areas that require routine maintenance easily accessible for fast and straight forward servicing.”, added Bernard Dewaele, Marketing Products Manager at KUBOTA EUROPE SAS.
