Orange Hire among the first to offer new Kubota Compact Tracked Loader

New Kubota machine hits Australian shores this April

The Orange Hire team has just taken delivery of the new Kubota SVL97-2 compact tracked loaders. These new machines set the productivity bar higher; offering a 96HP engine with a rated operating capacity of 1451kg at 35% tipping load.

The loaders come with a lockable DEF door, improved sealing and a newly redesigned diesel exhaust fluid system, cementing the popular unit as a leading machine in its category.

Orange Hire’s National Asset Manager, Paul Thompson, adds that these incredibly versatile loaders are fresh off the line from Japan.

“The new SVL97-2 are rolling into our branches in April, and Orange Hire is one of the first rental companies in Australia to offer these loaders to our customers.”

The new unit replaces Kubota’s largest compact tracked loader, the SVL95-2s. Let’s take a look at the improvements that make the SVL97-2 a great choice for contractors looking for productivity, precision and power.

Kubota SLV97

High Productivity Meets New Standard Technology

The new SVL97-2 boasts a 96-horsepower engine with a rated operating capacity of 1451 kg at 35% tipping load. The track loader outperforms the competition by boasting an impressive 3611 kg of bucket breakout force and a staggering 1035 mm reach at max height.

Optional front LED work lights are available for more efficient and safer work during the night and in any low light condition.

Enhanced DEF System

Key improvements to the unit include a significantly improved diesel exhaust fluid system. The DEF system has been re-engineered to ensure long-term reliability and productivity.

Kubota also improved the sealing of the cab, reducing the amount of dust, water and debris entering the operating space. This upgrade will give operators a cleaner and more efficient work environment on site.
