Kubota stretched beyond the mini-excavator market with introduction of the 18,300-pound KX080-3 crawler excavator. Kubota’s new largest excavator is designed to work in limited space with only 14 inches of counterweight extending beyond the track width. The KXO80-3 is the largest of five machines in class with swing-mounted booms. With 64 horsepower from its direct-injected diesel engine, the unit develops 8,554 pounds of arm-crowd force and 14,660 pounds of bucket breakout force. The KXO80-3 comes with the industry's first standard factory-installed anti-theft system.
