In the midst of one of the largest product introductions in its history, Kubota Tractor Corporation has debuted its R065-Series wheel loader.

Kubota says the R065-Series brings more features and more power in a bold new design to their wheel loader offering, helping power the company’s growth in the construction and agricultural equipment market.

"The R065-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," Kevin Hamilton, New Zealand Kubota construction equipment sales manager, says. "It’s exactly what our customers expect from Kubota’s expansion in the market.

The R065 is Kubota’s first entry into the 60–80hp range, raising the standard for Kubota wheel loader performance and opening up new markets and extended applications.

With a 64.4hp engine, the R065 delivers a maximum bucket breakout force of 4,263.6kgf (41.8kN). There are two models available with ROPS/FOPS certified canopy or new factory air-conditioned cab.

Offering versatility, the R065-Series helps provide strength, comfort, and superior operator benefits. The R065 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 R065-Series wheel loaders to fit in tighter spaces and under eaves.

The R065 features an E-HST (electronic) transmission with four modes—normal mode, attachment mode, power mode, and Eco mode. 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 R065-Series expands attachment selection with a new hydraulic skid steer style quick coupler and a hydraulic Euro-style coupler. The R065’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 operators quality breakout force to power through tough applications.
