COMMON RAIL & DPF
The Common Rail System (CRS) electronically controls the fuel injection timing and amount in stages rather than all at once for optimal combustion. The results are great efficiency, better fuel economy and less engine noise. Its combination with the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Muffler reduces harmful emissions to make the KX040-4 Tier IV-compliant.
Kubota’s original automatic regeneration system automatically burns accumulated particulate matter (soot) in the DPF muffler to keep the muffler clean for longer operation. For safety reasons, automatic regeneration can be turned off with the inhibit switch when the excavator is operating in areas that may pose a fire hazard.
NEW SPACIOUS CAB
The KX040-4 raises the standard in 4-ton excavator comfort with a spacious cab that rivals larger excavators. The luxurious cab features a wider entrance, greater legroom and a deluxe seat. Operation is greatly enhanced with more easy-to-use features than ever before.
