Kubota Tractor Corporation entered the stand-on track loader market with its SCL1000. The new stand-on track loader is well-positioned with wide tracks, narrow body and a Rated Operating Capacity of 1,000 pounds and meets the demands of landscape contractors and rental yards alike.
The new SCL1000 features a wide 9.8-inch track that comes standard on the overall narrow, 36-inch machine. The integrated track design is engineered for durability with the undercarriage welded to the mainframe of the body.
Kubota’s SCL1000 also boasts a 24.8 horsepower turbo-charged Kubota diesel engine with quiet operation, high altitude performance and no diesel particulate filter requirement.
The loader arms reach high and far with a hinge pin height of 84.7 inches and a reach of 25.9 inches at a 45-degree dump angle. The SCL1000 has a best-in-class travel speed of 5.1 miles per hour.
“Kubota has an unwavering commitment to the compact construction market,” said Tim Boulds, Kubota construction equipment Product Operations Manager. “And, while we took our time to engineer our inaugural product in this segment, the SCL1000 truly is a testament to that commitment, specifically filling the requests from contractors in the marketplace. We’re excited that Kubota can now compete in this segment with the SCL1000.”
