If you follow the construction equipment industry, then you might be across recent trends in rising popularity of certain brands and models. Although Kubota has long been known as a crowd-favourite, it is their ultra-compact excavator, the K008-3, that is starting to gain a lot of traction and rise in popularity. So, what is so special about this piece of construction equipment? The compact excavator is super spacious and super comfortable, yet still incredibly practical and functional too. Despite feeling incredibly roomy from the operator’s perspective, the K008-3 still manages to squeeze into the tightest of spaces.

The equipment piece easily outperforms all competitors in each of the key areas, including reliability, performance, serviceability and comfort – making it a clear winner within the construction equipment category. 

Kubota’s environmentally friendly engines are not only sustainable, but also dependable and powerful.

Because the cylinder lives on top of the boom, the K008-3 can boast an extended service life. Inside the dipper you will find bucket hoses that are well protected from any potential damage. The auxiliary hoses remain protected by routing them through the boom.  Another clever feature of the K008-3 is that is no longer requires long hoses when connecting your implements, which means a lesser risk of snagging and causing damage.
