Kubota’s All-New R30-Series Wheel Loaders

Kubota’s All-New R30-Series Wheel Loaders Bring More Power, More Features to Compact Construction Equipment

Model Choices Accommodate Tight Spaces and Varied Applications

TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- In the midst of one of the largest product introductions in its history, Kubota Tractor Corporation debuted its R30-Series Wheel Loaders this week at the company’s 2014 Dealer Meeting in Nashville, Tenn. The impressive new R30-Series includes the R530 and R630, and brings more features and more power in a bold new design to Kubota’s wheel loader offering, helping power the company’s growth in the construction equipment market.

“The R30-Series continues our commitment to high performance in a compact footprint while increasing our ability to meet the power needs of a wider variety of applications,” said Paul Manger, Kubota product marketing director, construction equipment. “It’s exactly what our customers would expect from Kubota’s expansion in construction.”

The R530 is the most compact of the new R30-Series. Featuring a 51 horsepower engine, the R530 is larger in size than the prior model with a larger bucket and a maximum bucket breakout force of 7,761 pounds. The R630 is Kubota’s first entry into the 60-80 horsepower range, raising the standard for Kubota wheel loader performance, and opening up new markets and extended applications. With a 64.4 horsepower engine, the R630 delivers a maximum bucket breakout force of 10,415 pounds. Both models are available with ROPS / FOPS certified canopy or new air conditioned cab.

Kubota’s versatile R30-Series offers strength, comfort, and superior operator benefits. Each model has a high-quality air-conditioned cab, wider entrance for maximum operator space, full suspension seat, and improved visibility. The cab offers lower noise levels, and a lower cab height allows Kubota’s R30-Series wheel loaders to fit in tighter spaces and under eaves.

Both R30-Series models are equipped with a hydrostatic transmission (HST), and the R630 features an E-HST (electronic) transmission with four modes – normal mode, attachment mode, power and Eco-modes. Normal mode is compatible with everyday load and carry operations. In attachment mode, the operator can independently control travel speed from flow to the attachments. To save on fuel, Eco-mode conserves fuel up to 15 percent over other modes, while power mode exchanges travel speed for an increase of about 40 percent in traction power to excavate or attack a hard packed pile with ease.

The new R30-Series expands attachment selection with a new hydraulic skid steer style quick coupler and a hydraulic Euro-style coupler. A wide variety of Kubota attachments are available for both models. The R30’s hybrid link system provides the best features of the parallel link system and the Z-bar link system, enhancing pallet fork operation, and allowing Kubota customers to enjoy exceptional breakout force to power through tough applications.

That's all well and good, but they have nothing on their website?

Why do a news release but have no info available?

Just trying for some constructive criticism here.
