FEATURES
CLEAN-RUNNING KUBOTA ENGINE
Powerful and dependable, the R420S and R520S diesel engine
delivers superior horsepower and performance. It offers low noise
and vibration levels, exceptional fuel efficiency, and complies with the
EPA's 2008 interim Tier IV emissions regulations.

LIMITED SLIP DIFFERENTIAL
Kubota’s 4-wheel drive lets you outmuscle challenging terrain, such
as mud, sand, and snow. When loose or soft terrain causes one front
wheel to lose its grip, the Limited Slip Differential transfers that
wheel’s power to the opposite wheel to restore traction.
LOAD SENSING TRANSMISSION (LST)
To operate more efficiently, this innovative feature enables our wheel
loaders to automatically shift from high speed/low torque to low
speed/high torque as load conditions vary. For optimal operation in tight
spaces, the travel speed limiter reduces maximum travel speed with just
a touch of a button, while maintaining full performance of the auxiliary
hydraulics.
AUXILIARY HYDRAULICS-A STANDARD
FEATURE
With the hydraulic valve and the control lever built-in on both our
models, you’ll save time and money whenever you need to hook up a
hydraulically operated attachment.
SUPERIOR LIFTING CAPACITY
A strong feature that provides smooth lifting and dumping of heavy
loads into truck beds.

FEATURES
HIGHEST DUMPING CLEARANCE
For easy dumping, even into trucks with high beds, the Kubota R420S
and R520S have the highest dumping clearance in their class.
HANGING-STYLE FOOT PEDALS
For increased foot space and a cleaner floorboard appearance, our
wheel loaders are equipped with hanging-style foot pedals.
FULLY ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION SEAT
Since every operator’s weight and ideal sitting position varies, we
created a seat that easily adjusts to provide a high level of comfort to
a wide range of drivers. Our seat adjusts according to the operator’s
weight, plus has hip support and reclines. And, because safety is
always a priority, there’s an enclosed, retractable safety belt.
LOWER SOUND AND VIBRATION
To enhance operator comfort, both models utilize a new engine
mount design, a helical gear, and an F-shaped fan to significantly
reduce overall noise and vibration.
ELECTRIC SHUTTLE SHIFTING
Increase production with on-the-fly shifting. Mounted on the steering
column, this timesaving, labor-reducing feature lets you shift from
forward to reverse to forward without ever clutching or braking.

ARTICULATION AND FRAME OSCILLATION
For greater stability and more comfort when operating on rough terrain,

a unique center-type joint allows for 8 of frame oscillation and 40 of
articulation in either direction. Plus, the heavy-duty components ensure
long life operation.
ULTRA-COMFORTABLE CAB
Your job is tough enough-your cab environment shouldn’t be. With
this mindset, we focused our efforts on creating a cab that maintains
your peak performance all day long. The result? A factory cab that
offers a clear field of view, a fully adjustable suspension seat, a vent
system with heater, low sound, minimal vibration, and more.
AUTOMATIC PARKING BRAKE
This safety feature automatically engages the parking brake whenever the engine is turned off. Particularly useful when our wheel
loaders are parked on steep slopes or transported by truck.
EXCEPTIONAL SERVICEABILITY
From simple daily maintenance to more complex repairs, a lockable,
wide-opening, flip-up engine cover provides easy access to most
areas of the wheel loader’s engine.
VERSATILE 60A ALTERNATOR
For the ultimate in versatility, a 60A alternator provides ample power
for the rotating safety lights (optional), as well as the cabin lights of
either model.

FEATURES
REAR ATTACHMENT CAPABILITY
Unlike most of our competitors, the Kubota R420S and R520S offer
greater versatility with auxiliary hydraulics plumbed to both front and
rear, enabling you to attach a backhoe whenever your job demands it.
ROPS/FOPS CAB AND CANOPY
You’ll work confidently and with peace of mind knowing you’re
protected by our Roll-Over Protective Structure and Falling Object
Protective Structure. Forged and attached at the Kubota factory, both
the ROPS and the FOPS meet the applicable, ISO, SAE, and OSHA
standards.
SAFETY STARTING SYSTEM
To prevent mishaps, our Safety Start System will not allow the engine to
start until the electric shuttle shift is in neutral and the parking brake is
applied.
