Future technology solutions for construction from Kubota.

At bauma 2022, Kubota is showcasing future technology solutions for construction, including an electric powered mini-excavator and compact wheel loaders plus a compact tracked loader concept model that features a micro-hybrid engine.

To meet construction and infrastructure demands across Europe, whilst complying with strict emission and noise requirements, Kubota’s future solutions for construction feature next-generation, sustainable engine technology. These include the development of alternative power sources such as electricity, LPG and HVO, alongside Kubota’s core technology – diesel power.

At bauma 2022, the new U36-4 Electric mini excavator and RT210-2e/RT220-2e electric compact wheel loaders will be the latest additions to Kubota’s Smart Energy Solutions range.

These machines deliver all the performance and reliability you’d expect from a Kubota combined with ultra-low environmental impact. The current range includes an LPG mini-excavator and electric compact tracked dumpers which offer high levels of productivity with zero or low emissions.
