Enhanced Digging Force
The KX018-4 delivers an impressive bucket digging force. Its powerful and well-balanced arm and bucket allow the operator to dig faster and more efficiently even in the toughest conditions.

Extraordinary Stability and Lifting Capacity
The KX018-4?s superior stability is due to its long tumbler distance and wide variable track width. It enables you to safely perform jobs using a host of Kubota attachments. And Kubota?s unique hydraulic system, together with a powerful boom cylinder, delivers the lifting power you need to broaden your range of lifting jobs. Combined, you get an advanced hydraulic system that automatically regulates and distributes the optimum amount of oil to each cylinder, based on the weight of the load for smooth, responsive and stable lifting capacity and overall operation.

Variable Track Gauge
Variable track gaugeTo optimize stability when using heavy attachments, the KX018-4 tracks can be expanded to a maximum of 4'3.2" and retracted to 3'3.0" to make passing through narrow doorways and tight work possible. Either adjustment can be made in just seconds by operating the independent track gauge lever.

The auto-shift system enables automatic travel shift from high to low depending on traction effort and terrain. This gives smoother operations when dozing and turning.
