    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.
