With a larger entrance, more legroom and an enhanced circulation system to keep you cool when the weather gets hot, the U-35 offers up the luxury you'd only expect from a 5-ton excavator.
New spacious cab
Kubota believes that operator comfort is a top priority. That's why the U35-4 is equipped with the same spacious cab as our larger 5-ton excavators. This roomy cab features a larger entrance, more legroom and an interior that is both luxurious and comfortable. Enhanced ergonomics allow you to perform routine operations with ease.
New digital panel
With easier access, simple settings and easy to read indicators, you're always aware of your machine's critical functions. The wider, more visible diplay with push buttons is located to the right front of the operator.
Auxiliary diverter valve
The standard diverter valve on the auxiliary circuit allows a second hydraulic attachment to be connected and the oil flow switched to the second attachment, with no need to disconnect the main attachment.
Save fuel with Kubota's Auto Idle. Reduce engine RPM instinctively when high engine speed isn't needed. When the control levers are in neutral for more than 4 seconds, the engine RPM automatically idles. Move any control lever and the engine RPM immediately returns. This innovative feature reduces noise and exhaust emissions while reducing operating costs.
Angle blade option
Save time and work more efficiently. With a simple movement of the rocker switch on the dozer lever, the hydraulic angle blade can be angled right or left to push soil to the side as the machine moves forward, eliminating the need for repetitive repositioning at right angles when backfilling trenches.
3rd Line Return
When working with one-way hydraulic attachments, such as a breaker or brush cutter, the standard third-line hydraulic return system allows oil to flow directly back to the tank without running through the control valves. This contributes to less oil contamination, reduced back pressure, and greater oil flow efficiency.
Variable Displacement Pumps
Smooth operation is a must when you're working in close quarters. Kubota's unique hydraulic system and large-capacity variable displacement pumps put the U35S2's speed and power under smooth, precise control. The performance matched boom, arm, and bucket greatly improve job efficiency. With all that hydraulic power harnessed in the front working group.
The swivel negative brake automatically locks the swivel function in its current position. This prevents unexpected machine movement. It's particularly useful during work on slopes or when towing the excavator between worksites.
The accumulator makes replacing attachments safer and more efficient. Turning the key to the "on" position clears residual pressure in the auxiliary hydraulic hose. If the engine is accidentally shut off while the front attachment is raised, turning the key to the "on" position allows you to safely lower it.
Adjustable/Proportional Auxiliary Flow
Now you can conveniently program up to five different oil flow rates for specific attachments on the new digital control panel. No tools or manual adjustment is required. Auxiliary attachments are operated with a proportional bi-directional rocker switch, or full flow button, on the right hand control lever.
Your U35-4 is protected by Kubota's industry-leading anti-theft system. Only programmed keys will enable the engine to start up. Attempting to start with an un-programmed key will activate the alarm. Newly enhanced features include an alert to remind the operator to extract the key after operation, and an LED to alert potential thieves that the system is activated.
Easy open front window
Unlike many excavator windows, the front glass window of the U35-4 opens with ease. Just flip the latches on the window sides and slide it up. A gas-assist mechanism makes this action almost effortless.
