Kubota Launch New Non-Digger Range for UK.


Kubota yesterday unveiled a range of compact Telehandlers, Tracked Dumpers and Wheel Loaders.  All of which will be available through their 32 strong UK distributorship. 

Watch the nimble KTH 4815-2 in action here and look out for a special feature in the next edition of UK Plant Operators Magazine. 

Kubota (UK) Ltd has launched its first telehandler, as it seeks to provide a wider range of machinery solutions for Construction and associated industries. Called the KTH4815-2, the compact machine boasts an overall width of 1.6m and an overall height of below 2m.

Model numbering is indicative of the telehandler’s lifting capability, with the KTH4815-2 capable of achieving a maximum lift height of 4.8m and a maximum lift capacity of 1.5 tonnes, depending on the variant. Hose burst check-valves and a load-moment sensor with forward over-turn protection meeting EN15000 certification, is also part of the standard specification.

Four versions of the KTH4815-2 telehandler are available; two are canopy-equipped models with a curved front screen, and two use fully glazed cabs with a two-piece door – the glazed upper section can be secured in the open position. The entry-level KTH4815-2 is supplied without a 170kg rear counterweight and is shod on 10/75×15.3 narrow tyres, reducing both its cost and performance. A wider, 31/15.5-15 skid steer tyre option is available. 

While canopy machines forfeit the left-hand door and work lights, the specification of fully glazed cab models includes three work lights, side-view mirrors, cab heating and a radio. Air conditioning is available as an option, and all models benefit from a reach and rake adjustable steering column.
