One of the best-known names in tractors worldwide, Kubota, is making its presence felt in the construction industry with its new EK110 Xtreme extendable reach TLB.

The Japanese brand enjoys unprecedented support in farming circles in South Africa where its tractors dominate several segments of the market. Now, its Kubota EK110 Xtreme spells good news for the construction industry as it provides Japanese durability and reliability at considerably lower initial and aftersales costs than comparable reach TLBs from Europe and the USA.

In a major shakeup for the local equipment market, the Kubota machines are up to 30% more affordable than comparable competitors and similar kinds of saving can be had across the entire range of construction machines. Added to these the Kubota machines are extremely fuel efficient, the engines are easy to maintain and are supported by one of the largest dealer networks in the country.

Distributor, Smith Power Equipment, also has all-new financial packages that can be carefully compiled for contractors and operators of the equipment. These will be completely unique and will set the trend for future equipment from the supplier. Rather than just chasing “prime-less…” deals, it is exploring new ways for customers to purchase its construction equipment alongside one of the biggest banks in the country.

The Kubota EK110 Xtreme is a versatile TLB for use in general construction, trenching and lifting applications among others. It is supplied with a unique six-in-one loader bucket capable of being used as a blade, lifting, scraping, levelling, loading and even opened up as grab. Its has a 105hp Perkins engine that provides more than enough power to lift extra heavy loads and to power the backhoe which also has the additional benefit of being extendable up to an additional 2.4m for extra deep excavations and longer reach. In addition, the boom has a standard 3rd function for the operation of accessories such as rock hammers.
