Kubota Tractor announced its new stand-on track loader, the SCL1000, at Conexpo/IFPE. The loader is well-positioned to meet the demands of landscape contractors and rental yards with wide tracks, narrow body and a rated operating capacity (ROC) of 1,000 pounds.
The new SCL1000 features a 9.8 in. track that comes standard on the overall narrow, 36 in. machine. The integrated track design is engineered for durability with the undercarriage welded to the mainframe of the body. The grease track tension design includes sealed oil bath rollers for less maintenance and greater durability. The tracks, with a rating of 4.0 psi ground pressure, are low impact and minimize damage to grass and landscaping.
Kubota’s SCL1000 uses a 24.8 hp turbocharged Kubota diesel engine with quiet operation, high altitude performance and no diesel particulate filter requirement. The hydraulic pump directly connected to the engine reduces maintenance. And it is engineered with cushioned loader boom cylinders and an adjustable platform suspension system that increase operator comfort for maximum productivity. A 4.3-inch LCD color dash monitor provides easy-to-read consolidated machine monitoring.
The loader arms have a hinge pin height of 84.7 in. and a reach of 25.9 in. at a 45-degree dump angle. Travel speed is 5.1 miles per hour.
