Kubota releases the SVL97-2 Compact Track Loader
Kubota has released the next evolution of its Compact Truck Loader, the SVL97-2 which will replace the SVL95-2.
Keeping the same features as its predecessor, the new model comes with improved sealing, a redesigned diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) tanks and clean-burning tier four final 96.4 horsepower Kubota engine.
Kubota assistant product manager Nathan Thomas says the modifications to the new SVL97-2 are all about user comfort and experience: “We are excited to announce the introduction of the SVL97-2 Compact Track Loader to our existing range, continuing on the best aspects of the previous model with additional improvements.
“An update to the sealing increases the cabin pressure and eliminates the risk of water and dust ingression. The addition of grommets on the cabin floor further increases cabin pressure, ensuring a cleaner cabin environment and better air conditioning.”
He adds that the DEF tank capacity has decreased in size, down from 18.5L to 12L, to improve longevity and minimise deterioration while a lockable DEF fuel cover eliminates the risk of accidental diesel fill ups.
“Modifications to the brackets and the repositioning of the clamps on the DEF harness improves durability by reducing possible friction and vibration damage ensuring longevity,” Nathan says.
The outer cover of the hydraulic oil tank gauge, prone to dust build up, has been removed to enhance operator visibility when checking the hydraulic oil level.
