Kubota Tractor Corporation unveiled the newest member of its compact track loader line with the SVL97-2, replacing the popular SVL95-2.

“Our SVL line has been a core product offering within the construction equipment marketplace, and the enhancements available on this unit keep Kubota at the top of its game,” said Patrick Baker, Kubota construction equipment product manager.

The new SVL97-2 will replace the popular SVL95-2s and will be available at Kubota dealerships this month.

According to Kubota, the SVL97-2 has a 96-horsepower engine with a rated operating capacity of 3,200 pounds (at 35 percent tipping load). The track loader offers 7,961 pounds of breakout force and a 3.4-foot reach at max height. Also, the machine comes standard with telematics to monitor the machine’s health and location.

Kubota says the standard rear-view camera can be set to display constantly or only when the machine is moving in reverse. Optional front LED work lights are available for more efficient and safer work during the night or in any low light conditions.

The DEF system has been re-engineered to ensure long-term reliability and productivity. Kubota also improved the sealing of the cab, reducing the amount of dust, water and debris entering the operating space.
