Kubota L45 tractor-loader-backhoe

April 2009 Vol. 64 No. 4

The new L45 tractor-loader-backhoe (TLB) operates like three machines in one, combining a strong loader and backhoe with three-point implement capabilities.

Powered by a 45-hp Kubota diesel engine and new HST Plus Transmission, Kubota’s L45 is equipped with hydro dual speed, load-sensing ability and auto throttle.

The loader is designed with a slanted boom and braceless frame, and has a lifting capacity of 2,200 pounds with a nine-foot, six-inch lifting height. The sloping hood allows the operator to visually check the surrounding area when working with the front loader, even with the bucket lowered. The L45 backhoe boasts a 10-foot digging depth, a high-performance inching valve and a standard hydraulic thumb bracket.

The L45 features standard backhoe crawling mode, providing the ability to move at “creep” speed, ultimately saving time when repositioning while trenching. 888.458.2682, x900, www.kubota.com
