Kubota KX080-5 Excavator Replaces KX080-4

Jan. 23, 2024
Dash 5 upgrades include 2-pump load-sensing system.

The KX080-5 Kubota excavator replaces the Kubota KX080-4 and is the company’s largest excavator. Maximum dig depth is 15 feet 1 inch for the 66.6-horsepower excavator, which has an operating weight of 18,520 pounds. Maximum dumping height is 17 feet 2.7 inches, and bucket breakout force is 14,660 lb.-ft.

The 2-pump load-sensing system improves the overall smoothness of operation when using attachments, and the auto-shift system enables automatic travel shift from high to low depending on traction effort and terrain.

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.

The Kubota KX080-5 cab has a double adjustable air suspension seat equipped with a slide that can be double adjusted to find the right level of comfort, and the joystick consoles on the left and right sides can be adjusted independent of the seat to match individual operator requirements. A new full-color 7-inch LCD monitor with jog dial provides operators with vital information and access to functions like auxiliary flow adjustment and automatic activation of 3rd line hydraulic return.

A factory-designed rear-view camera displays a fish-eye view of the rear of the KX080-5 on the monitor while reversing. LED work lights with turn off delay allow the lights to remain on for up to two minutes after the engine is turned off so the operator can exit the machine and worksite under full illumination.
