Kubota launched the KX080-5 compact excavator, meant to replace the KX080-4 with performance, utility and various upgrades.

“With the new KX080-5, customers are getting Kubota’s biggest and most powerful excavator in our lineup with all of the five upgrades included,” said Bill Holton, Kubota product manager, construction equipment. “When a customer walks into a Kubota dealership looking for our top-of-the-line model, the KX080-5 will give them all the power, performance and premium operator experience features that come standard, like the air suspension seat, 7-inch LCD monitor and keyless start, without having to add any upgrades.”

Features of the KX080-5 compact excavator include: 

  • Equipped with a 66.6-hp (SAE J1995 gross) Kubota engine, the KX080-5 features a digging depth of 15 feet, 1.1 inches, a maximum dumping height of 17 feet, 2.7 inches and a bucket breakout force of 14,660 pounds.
  • The two-pump load-sensing system supports the use of attachments, letting operators perform simultaneous tasks.
  • The auto-shift system enables automatic travel shift from high to low depending on traction effort and terrain, providing simultaneous operations when dozing and turning.
  • A new programmable engine auto stop feature turns off the engine when idling up to 30 minutes. 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 four seconds.
  • The interior of the new KX080-5 has a spacious cab with tech-forward features. A double adjustable air suspension seat is equipped with a slide that can be double adjusted 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 information and access to functions like auxiliary flow adjustment and automatic activation of third line hydraulic return.
  • KubotaNOW telematics come standard on the KX080-5 providing operators with information like accumulated hours, fuel level, location and temperatures through the myKubota app.
  • In addition, keyless start comes standard enabling the engine to be started by entering a four-digit passcode on the excavator keypad and up to 10 user passwords can be set.
  • A factory-designed rear-view camera displays a fish-eye view of the rear of the KX080-5 on the 7-inch LCD monitor while reversing. LED work lights with turn off delay, allowing 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. The quiet cabin helps to protect the operator from loud engine noise and features an expanded glass area that provides visibility for loading, unloading and digging work.
