24 | www.cedmag.com | Construction Equipment Distribution | March 2015 Kubota Enters Skid Steer Market with SSV-Series Kubota Tractor Corporation unveiled its new SSV-Series skid- steer loaders designed to meet the needs of customers in the construction, rental and agriculture segments. e SSV-Series includes the 64 gross horsepower SSV65 and the 74 gross horse- power SSV75, both available at Kubota dealerships starting this June. With this introduction, Kubota now offers a full line of compact construction equipment. Both SSV models feature a unique, slide-up, front-entry door that rises overhead, instead of swinging out. is design allows the door to be opened regardless of loader position so that the operator can enter and exit the machine even when the skid steer is in a tight or difficult position. Other standard features include a spacious, dust-resistant pressurized cabin with an optimized climate control system, and a side light that allows for better visibility and safer operation at night. In addition, an optional multi-function lever feature is available, allowing for fingertip control of major machine and implement functions. e SSV-Series is powered by an EPA Tier-4 certified four-cylinder Kubota diesel engine. With standard two-speed travel and optional high-flow hydraulics, Kubota's vertical li geometry skid steers will meet the needs of Kubota customers across the construction, rental and agriculture segments. e SSV65 boasts a rated operating capacity of 1,950 pounds and bucket breakout force of 4,839 pounds; the SSV75 has a rated operating capacity of 2,690 pounds and bucket breakout force of 5,884 pounds. e loaders on the SSV-Series are easily capable of dumping into a dump truck with 10-foot sides. e SSV65 and SSV75 feature hand-and-foot controls, and pilot control models are expected to join the lineup next year.
