Kubota extends front end loader range

Kubota's X46. Kubota's X46.

The range of Kubota MGX front-end loaders has been extended with the arrival of two mechanical self-levelling units.

The X46 & Q5S are manufactured by Swedish industry leader ALO and branded in the familiar Kubota Orange. 

The X46 is suitable for the M100GX and M110GX while the Q5S compliments the M126GX and M135GX tractors.

The new models are in addition to the Kubota-made LA1954 and LA2254 loader models. 

These new loaders come standard with industry leading build quality and finish, third service, boom suspension, Euro Hitch, Ergo-Drive Joystick, flat-faced couplers and optional Hydraulic Quick Coupler. The latter is offered as standard on the Q5S model.

For the Q5S, an optional Electro-Drive Electronic Joystick takes operation to the next level, using a novel thumb control, mounted on a flexible joystick that can be moved out of the way when not in use. 

Designed for strength, durability and all-round visibility, the loaders’ layout has curved 80mm-wide high-tensile steel loader arms with a round, low-set cross-tube for the best torsional force absorption. Cast or forged components are used in crucial areas such as the arm ends, at the “knee” of the loader and at the rear of the Q Link. 

Durability is enhanced with all pipes or hoses running inside the boom profiles, which also provides obstruction-free forward vision to the implement. 

Easily accessible greasing points, facing outwards, makes routine maintenance easy. The wide, stable parking legs are stowed under the boom for quick tool-free removal and re-fitment of the loader.
