68 | www.cedmag.com | Construction Equipment Distribution | December 2014 New & Improved Kubota Tractor Corp. debuted its R30-Series Wheel Loaders including the R530 and R630 models, adding more features and power. The R530 is the most compact of the new R30-Series. Featuring a 51 horsepower engine, the R530 is larger in size than the prior model with a larger bucket and a maximum bucket breakout force of 7,761 pounds. The R630 is Kubota's first entry into the 60-80 horsepower range, raising the standard for Kubota wheel loader performance, and opening up new markets and extended applications. With a 64.4 horsepower engine, the R630 delivers a maximum bucket breakout force of 10,415 pounds. Both models are available with ROPS / FOPS certified canopy or new air-conditioned cab. Kubota's versatile R30-Series offers strength, comfort, and superior operator benefits. Each model has a high- quality air-conditioned cab, wider entrance for maximum operator space, full suspension seat, and improved visibility. The cab offers lower noise levels, and a lower cab height allows Kubota's R30-Series wheel loaders to fit in tighter spaces and under eaves. Both R30-Series models are equipped with a hydrostatic transmission (HST), and the R630 features an E-HST (electronic) transmission with four modes – normal mode, attachment mode, power and Eco- modes. Normal mode is compatible with everyday load and carry operations. In attachment mode, the operator can independently control travel speed from flow to the attach- ments. To save on fuel, Eco-mode conserves fuel up to 15 percent over other modes, while power mode exchanges travel speed for an increase of about 40 percent in traction power to excavate or attack a hard packed pile with ease. The new R30-Series expands attachment selection with a new hydraulic skid-steer-style quick coupler and a hydraulic Euro-style coupler. A wide variety of Kubota attachments are available for both models. The R30's hybrid link system provides the best features of the parallel link system and the Z-bar link system, enhancing pallet fork operation, and allowing Kubota customers to enjoy exceptional breakout force to power through tough applications.

This latest addition to the Premium range has been upgraded to encompass the many product refinements of the larger QA451 triple deck version in order to improve operation, efficiency and ease of maintenance. New features on the QA441 include a color-coded push button control system with sequential start-up for ease of operation as well as an updated feeder hopper and feeder drive system for increased throughput. To speed-up screen media changes, the QA441 includes hydraulic screen separation, new wrap-around walkways, a newly designed access ladder, optimized screen drives and hydraulic raise / lower facility on the main conveyor. The standard radio remote control and upgraded electrical system will also further enhance operator safety and control. Featuring the patented Doublescreen system, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary since its launch in 1999, this unique, world-class technology is a revolutionary design utilizing two high velocity screen boxes that work indepen- dently of each other; the primary screen works as a fines extractor, while the secondary screen operates as a grader. Doublescreen advantages over competing products include greater material control, greater adjustability, increased accuracy and higher screening efficiencies, making this unit ideal for producing massive volumes of high specifica- tion products, without compromising on productivity. The QA441 is therefore ideal for large scale aggregates produc- ers but lends itself to many applications including iron ore, topsoil, recycling, minerals, coal, sand and gravel.
