Kubota’s lightest and most maneuverable compact track loader ever
Designed for big jobs in tight work spaces
Kubota is positioning the new SVL65-2 compact track loader in a lighter rated operating capacity weight class than the current SVL75-2 and the SVL95-2 models, further diversifying the company's construction and landscaping equipment offerings.
Designed for big jobs in tight work spaces, the new compact track loader is sure to meet the expectations of operators wanting exciting new features that will increase efficiency. With its exceptional comfort, Kubota says that the new SVL65-2 will delight operators by making their work easier while providing them with superior operational control, power and performance.
"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," says Bob Hickey, president of Kubota Canada Ltd. "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 engine ready to power through any job and boasts a wide working range including a rated operating capacity of 2,100 pounds at a 35 percent lift or 3,000 pounds at a 50 percent lift, a reach of 88.65 cm (34.9 inches) and a hinge pin height of 301 cm (118.5 inches). The standard self-levelling feature can be engaged with the flip of a switch and keeps the bucket or forks at level without the need to manually adjust the angle. Plus, multi-function levers provide control of all major vehicle and attachment operations at the operator's fingertip.
Advanced multifunction valve
The new SVL65-2 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 makes running any attachment that uses auxiliary hydraulics easy, particularly attachments such as a grapple bucket, a 4-in-1 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 spacious cab also includes a standard suspension seat that offers outstanding comfort with ergonomically placed armrests to minimize operator fatigue.
Consistent with the larger models in Kubota's SVL Series, the SVL65-2 features a sliding front door that can be opened regardless of the position of the bucket or loader arm; full machine operation is possible with the door open, when desired.
"Our newest product in the compact track loaders category further strengthens our construction equipment line. The SVL line represents our commitment to quality and safety for all our customers from coast to coast. Offering this smaller-class size compact track loader to Canadian customers and operators makes Kubota a stronger player in this category," said Yannick Montagano, vice-president of sales & marketing at Kubota Canada Ltd.
