Kubota Launches KX080-5 Compact Excavator

Kubota Tractor Corp. announced the launch of the KX080-5 compact excavator from the showroom floor at World of Concrete, as it celebrates its 50th anniversary manufacturing construction equipment globally.

Replacing the popular KX080-4 with performance, utility and comfort upgrades, the new KX080-5 takes the top spot in Kubota’s robust excavator lineup and will be available at authorized Kubota dealerships within the first quarter of 2024. Equipped with a 66.6-hp Kubota engine, the KX080-5 features a working range that includes a digging depth of 15 feet 1.1 inches, a maximum dumping height of 17 feet 2.7 inches, and a bucket breakout force of 14,660 lbs, delivering impressive performance and efficiency for its size.

The 2-pump load-sensing system improves the overall smoothness of operation when using attachments, letting operators effortlessly perform simultaneous tasks. Additionally, the auto-shift system enables automatic travel shift from high to low depending on traction effort and terrain, providing simultaneous operations when dozing and turning. A new programmable Engine Auto Stop feature turns off the engine when idling up to 30 minutes, and an Auto Idling System reduces engine RPM instinctively when high engine speed isn’t needed and the control levers are in neutral for more than 4 seconds.
