K008-3 Compact Excavator – Kubota™

The Kubota Ultra-Compact Excavator K008-3 weighs 2,200 pounds and is only 9 feet long, lightweight, nimble and powerful enough for small construction sites.

With a height of 7 feet 4 inches and a width of 2 feet 10 inches, the Kubota K008-3 has a small footprint. You can also adjust its track width from 2 feet 10 inches to 2 feet 4 inches. This adjustment allows the mini excavator to pass through doorways, gates and narrow corridors at construction sites.

Clean-running Kubota Engine: Powerful and dependable, the K008-3’s diesel engine delivers superior horsepower and performance. It offers low noise and vibration levels, exceptional fuel efficiency, and complies with the EPA’s 2013 Tier IV emissions regulations.

TPSS: TPSS is standard equipment, allowing the operator to select the most familiar operating control pattern, either ISO or SAE.

Two-speed Travel: Need to make up time? Step on the K008-3’s hi-speed pedal, and you’ll maneuver around job sites faster than any other compact excavator in its class.

Two-way Lever: Located within easy reach, it lets you switch between control of the blade or the adjustable track width.

Spacious Operator’s Area: You’ll find it more comfortable behind the operating levers of the K008-3. That’s because we’ve generously increased the space between the operating levers and the operator’s seat, and lengthened the floorboards.
