These machines will be raising the bar in a 6 ton class machines.
Just the fact that it has twin aux circuits plumbed from the factory will be priceless.

That two auxiliary hydraulic is big. Wonder what is the 'refueling pump'? Very interesting.

It is to refuel the machine. You can pump out of a tank without a pump on it. They do this to cater to the rental market, where customers may not have a transfer tank. The KX80 has it standard.

I never would have seen that as necessary? But I guess that would be nice not having to mess with a pump on the fuel tank.

I think the extra hydraulics is very good, wonder how they control them? If they would have 'roller' switches going up/down and left/right to control the hydraulics that would be cool. Actually, I would like a setup like that on a skid. I have seen a few of the mini's set up from the Twin Cities that have rock grapples and it cost dearly to get the extra hydraulics.

The KX-080 already has dual aux lines. I assume it will be a copy of them.

That's what I get for not paying attention to the Kubota website.:) I know the dealer I got my 440 from has Kubota tractors but I don't know if they deal with any construction stuff?

It was made with the idea that you can pump directly out of a truck fuel tank. Twin hydraulics definitely nice. Use a thumb with any other attachment.
