Kubota has unveiled two new construction loaders; the new SVL65-2 and R430 are now rolling out across Australia.


Both models provide increased performance and tailor-made for those big jobs in small places.

"We excited to release these two new construction loaders which will extend the model offering of Kubota's construction range," Kubota Construction Product Manager Nathan Thomas says.

Kubota’s SVL65-2 is a new edition to the Kubota compact track loader range and sits just under the current SVL75-2 and SVL95-2S. The SVL65-2 is 385kg lighter than the SVL75-2 and still offers the same superior functionality and exceptional comfort.

The new hydraulic system features an innovative, advanced multi-function valve that allows operators to run the AUX hydraulics, bucket and loader arm functions together without stalling.

The SVL65-2’s new electronic travel torque management constantly monitors the load of the machine to optimally control the hydraulic pump output and prevent engine stalls.

The compact track loader also offers the benefits of the reliable 68HP engine to work faster and with greater efficiency.

Kubota has also improved on its wheel loader.


The upgraded R430 articulated wheel loader now replaces the previous R420S which was discontinued in 2017.

The machine offers greater performance with impressive power, excellent versatility and a compact frame. With its long reach and high clearance, all types of dumping jobs are now within range.

Kubota’s R series model offering will still include the larger R065 available in Cab or Canopy models as well as the new compact and smaller R430 only available in Canopy.

Kubota recognised comfort is key to operator efficiency, and the new construction loaders provide superior comfort with ample space to keep operators working comfortable and efficiently for longer.

Kubota’s R430 boasts a powerful new 47 horsepower T4 engine, a big step up from the previous model’s 39 horsepower.

Along with a modern digital display, the wheel loader can shift from high speed and low torque to low speed and high torque at the touch of a button.

"We’re proud of our new construction loaders and are committed to continue working towards meeting the needs of the Australian construction industry," Thomas says.

Launched at Kubota National 'Ride and Drive' events, the SVL65-2 and R430 are rolling out across Kubota dealerships now.
