Attachments Boost Kubota Mini Excavators Productivity


Kubota mini excavators are stealing a further march over their competitors due to the increasing number of useful attachments that can be fitted, delivering added versatility and productivity in construction and many other sectors, including agriculture, landscaping, industry, demolition, quarrying and recycling.

All 18 Kubota models, spanning the weight range from 850kg up 8 tonnes, can have the Miller Bug or the Klac quick hitch coupler system fitted by distributors to allow the operator to rapidly switch between attachments from inside the machine's cab.

Kubota distributors provide a wide range of specialist attachments from some of the UK's leading suppliers, including branded Kubota breakers made for the company by Sandvik.

According to attachment supplier Exac-One, the most popular tool currently in demand from Kubota users is the Mini-Mower range, an alternative to hand-held strimmers which is widely used by landscapers, plant hirers, local authorities, water authorities and ground care contractors.

Among other Exac-One attachments most often requested are the Powertilt bucket swing attachment, Mini-Hammer, the Kerb-Krawler system for fast kerb laying, Tiltrotator, Compactor, Clamshell bucket, Log grab, Mini-grapple and Orange Peel grab.

BPH Sales also supplies Kubota distributors with a range of specialist attachments which include Arrowhead Rockdrill hammers, Kinshoffer HPXdrive clamshell buckets and grapples, and Berti flail mowers and mulchers.

Said Richard Harrison, Sales and Marketing Manager, Kubota (UK) Ltd – Construction Equipment Division: “Kubota excavators have a legendary reputation for quality, reliability, durability and appetite for hard work., as well as their exceptional versatility.

“To make them ever more productive each of our distributors is able to advise on and provide customers, whichever sector they operate in, with a wide range of specialist tools from some of the country's top attachment manufacturers and suppliers. All the attachments we recommend meet current Health & Safety legislation.”
