Kubota Canada Launches New Wheel Loaders
Kubota Canada Ltd., the Canadian marketer and distributor of Kubota tractors and equipment,has announced that it will be adding two new models to its compact wheel loader lineup. The new R530 and R630 have been designed emphasizing comfort and efficiency and will be equipped with powerful Kubota diesel engines and advanced features.
All new inside and out, the 2 new models will feature a choice of a 4-post ROPS/FOPS canopy or deluxe factory cab with air conditioning. The new factory cab will feature low noise levels and high visibility along with fresh and modern styling and a lower cab height. The ergonomic interior layout will be packed with standard features including suspension seat, tilt steering, exterior mirrors, lights, and digital display.
The R530 will feature a Kubota 51 H.P. Tier 4 final diesel engine using a common rail system (CRS) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) coupled to its tried and true hydrostatic transmission (HST). A 64.4 H.P. version of the engine will power the R630 but it will use an advanced electronic hydrostatic transmission (E-HST) offering 4 different operating modes which will allow the operator to choose the most suitable mode depending on the machine application.
The R30 series loaders will showcase Kubota’s new hybrid link system which blends the best features of parallel linkage and Z-bar systems and will allow operators to lift fully loaded pallets up and down while keeping the loads level and at the same time, giving full breakout force when in bucket mode. A choice of either skid steer or euro type hydraulic coupler will be available on both models with bucket sizes starting at .85 cu.yd for the R530 and 1.0 cu.yd for the R630
Both R30 series wheel loaders will be available with either standard R4 bias, industrial L-2 radials or Nokian radials with TRI 2 tread design for traction in snow applications exclusive to Canadian customers.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
