Kubota unveils brand new electric compact wheel loaders

Kubota has launched two new next generation electric RT compact wheel loaders, further bolstering its Smart Energy Solutions range of sustainable construction machinery.

The RT210-2e and RT220-2e have been deisgned to provide high productivity, outstanding user comfort and control with zero emission performance, giving operators the same level of excellence they’ve come to expect from Kubota machines – without the carbon output.

Both machines feature an extremely powerful, high torque electric motor that can be recharged within 90 minutes when using the optional supercharger, making them a reliable choice for a wide range of projects and tasks. Powered by a 48V system with modular 260Ah lithium-ion batteries as standard, the machines regenerate energy when the machine decelerates or travels downhill, further enhancing their reliability.

Boasting enhanced loading versatility, the RT210-2e’s long loader arm has a reach of up to 2,852mm, while the RT220-2e shorter loader arm has an increased lift capacity of up to 1,140kg.

Compact and agile, both the RT210-2e and RT220-2e are highly manoeuvrable with all-wheel steering on each axle, with a pivot steer of 44 degrees, making them perfect for work in restricted spaces. Further versatility is added by a hydraulic quick hitch which is compatible with a host of attachment options.

The machines have been manufactured with user-comfort front of mind, with an ergonomic design that minimises noise poullation and vibrations for fatigue-free operation. Operator safety is priorotised via a unique overheating function and through both ROPS (Roll Over Protective Structure) and FOPS (Falling-Over Protective Structure).

Both the RT210-2e and RT220-2e also have electric / hydraulic integration that delivers complete multi-functionality for operators, particularly for lifting and the top cylinder. The machines also have optional boom suspension to provide even better retention of load inside the shovel, even at higher speeds.
