A unique boom design incorporating boom cylinder and hydraulic hose protection, is just one of the features which promotes the new 1.5 tonne Kubota U15-3 zero tail swing mini excavator to class leading status.

With the boom cylinder relocated to the top of the boom, any potential for damage to the boom cylinder is eliminated. Unlike operators of conventional mini-excavators, operators of the U15-3 will therefore never have to be concerned with boom cylinder damage caused by concrete or other debris. Likewise, there are also no worries with hydraulic hose entanglement as the U15-3 hoses are completely encased within the boom.

With the zero tail swing, operators do not have to worry about striking the tail on any structure and the U15-3 boasts excellent stability, not previously seen in a zero tail swing machine. A massive bucket breakout force of 1550kg further enhances the U15-3’s class leading status.

As with it’s minimal tail swing brother, the KX41-3V, the U15-3 is exceptionally manoeuvrable thanks to a variable track enabling the operator to gain entry to sites with less than one meter wide assess! A two-speed travel switch has been added to the dozer blade lever to give operators more leg room for extra comfort. With a suspension seat with arm rests to minimize jolts and the newly developed short stroke control levers for more precise operations, the U15-3 really is “operator friendly”.

All Kubota excavators including the U15-3 feature a two pattern select system so the operating pattern can be changed from SAE to ISO with the flick of a lever.

For peace of mind a three year / 3000 hour warranty applies to all Kubota excavators and they have the full support of an authorised dealer network that delivers a high level of service and spare parts availability.
