Common Rail System and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Muffler 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 greater 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.
Spacious Cab - Designed for greater comfort, the large cab with a fully flat floor provides more legroom to minimize fatigue.
Automatic Regeneration System - 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 are prone to fires.
Introducing ECO PLUS® - Kubota’s original ECO PLUS® prioritizes fuel economy, and supports the environment. For tough digging applications, use Standard Mode and experience a 3% productivity improvement over the prior model and use less fuel, up to 12% less.
Easy-open Front Slide Window - Unlike many excavator windows, the front glass window of the KX040-4 opens with ease. Just flip the latches on the window sides and slide it up. A gas-assist mechanism makes this action almost effortless.
