Large comfortable cab to suit all operators

Not all operators are the same size. That’s why the interior of the Kubota U48-5 is generously-sized, with an adjustable seat and available air ride seat and sunshade. Plus, there’s more headroom and floor space along with a slim, ergonomically positioned right meter panel.

Available 5 auxiliary flow settings

Go with the flow: there are 5 auxiliary flow settings available on the U48-5, to match the attachment performance with the electronic return-to-tank for one-way flow attachments such as the Kubota Hydraulic Breaker. Dual Auxiliaries are standard equipment that allow thumb and attachment to be plumbed at same time.

9500lbs of bucket breakout force

Get the power to get the job done. With performance-matched buckets to help provide 9500lbs. of bucket breakout force, even tough digging jobs can be completed quickly and efficiently.

Keyless start option

When time is precious, it’s the little things that make the difference. The U48-5 offers a keyless start option, with the ability to program 10 different codes so every operator can have their own.

Increased visibility

Visibility is critical when operating equipment. With more glass in the front window, skylight, and left and right windows, operators get a wider viewpoint.

Rear-view camera. See the difference.

An optional rear-view camera provides increased visibility to the rear of the compact excavator by displaying the view on the 7” LCD screen in the cab.
