New Kubota KX080-4S Excavator
Common Rail System and Diesel Particulate Filter
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 great efficiency, better fuel economy and less engine noise.
Its combination with the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Diesel
Particulate Filter (DPF) Muffler reduces emissions to make the KX080-4S
engine Tier IV certificated.
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 contain flammable materials.
Introducing ECO e PLUS
Kubota’s original ECO e PLUS prioritizes fuel economy, and supports the
environment. In Standard mode, KX080-4s delivers up to 8% productivity
improvement and 14% fuel savings over the previous model. For even
greater fuel savings, activate ECO e PLUS Mode with the flick of a switch
for up to 16% fuel savings over Standard Mode. Other benefits of the new
ECO e PLUS mode include a reduction of noise as well as improved front
2-Pump Load-Sensing Hydraulic System
A new 2-pump load-sensing system improves the overall smoothness of operations when using front
attachments, letting you effortlessly perform simultaneous operations. You’ll notice the difference when
simultaneously operating the front working group while traveling.
Tight Tail Swing and Compact Machine Width
Thanks to its contoured, tight tail design created by the shorter rear overhang, the KX080-4S has excellent
stability, can handle a wider range of loads, and can work in more restrictive spaces. The compact 7’2.6″ width
of the under-carriage makes it ideal for working in close conditions, and much easier to transport between job
Industrial Digging Force
You need exceptional power when trenching through compacted soil. With the KX080-4S, elevated
productivity levels are certain with the combination of 14,660 lbs. bucket force and 8,554 lbs. arm forces. The
KX080-4S powers through those demanding applications so that you can quickly move on to the next job.
The auto-shift system enables automatic travel shift from high to low depending on traction effort and terrain.
This gives smoother simultaneous operations when dozing and turning.
Proportional Flow Control of Auxiliary Circuits
(AUX1/2) and Maximum Oil Flow Settings
Two auxiliary circuits (AUX 1 & 2) come standard on the KX080-4S.
The convenient thumb-operated switch allows easy proportional flow
control of the auxiliary circuit, while a forefinger-operated on/off
switch enables simple operation of special applications that require a
constant oil flow. The maximum oil flow setting is conveniently
adjustable from the digital panel. You can even program up to five oil
flow rates corresponding to specific attachments so they can be
quickly retrieved for the next job.
Adjustable Maximum Oil Flow Control for Auxiliary Port
This unique function lets you control the oil flow and eliminates the
hassle of using tools to change settings manually. The system will
even store your settings for the next time you need it. Adjustable oil
flow enhances performance and saves fuel.
Hydraulic Angle Blade (option)
Save time and work more efficiently. With a simple movement of the
new thumb operated rocker switch on the dozer lever, the hydraulic
angle blade can be angled to the 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.
Auto Idling System
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.
Hydraulic Angle Blade (option)
You don’t need to adjust the dozer height to make a clean ground
surface-after backfilling, just travel backward along the covered ditch
with the dozer in the float position. Ground finishing work is now fast and
Up, down, left, and right – the angle blade can be moved and positioned
with just a single lever.
Easy-Open Front Window
Unlike many excavator windows, the front glass window of the KX080-4S
opens with ease. Just flip the latch on the side of the window and slide it
up. A gas-assist mechanism makes this action almost effortless.
Window Guard (Optional)
Operators need protection from flying chips and debris when using some attachments. On some sites antivandalism
is important. Kubota provides the window guard mounting points around the front window as a
The KX080-4S features a guttering system to the cab’s roof. This helps prevent rainwater from entering the
cab, even when the window is open on a rainy day.
Overall air circulation in the cab is better than ever, thanks to a stronger
cooling/heating unit and the positioning of six vents. Airflow is also
directed towards the operator’s face for better all-round comfort.
Deluxe Suspension Seat
Designed and engineered with comfort in mind, Kubota’s high-back
suspension seat reduces strain and minimizes operator fatigue. It
reclines to accommodate your individual posture, and offers weight
compensation, firm wrist support and retractable seat belts.
With the convenience of a bigger cup holder, you can quench your
thirst and work longer without leaving the cab. Or store your cell
phone*. The charging port is located conveniently close by.
*Cell phones should not be used during machine operation.
Raise the safety control lever and the console moves with it, providing more room for entry and exit. To
prevent unexpected machine movement during entry or exit, all control levers are then disabled until the
console is back in place.
The Two-Pattern Selection System can shift control styles, whether it’s the
ISO pattern or the SAE backhoe pattern, with the simple turn of a switch.
ROPS/OPG (TOP Guard, Level I)
The OSHA-certified ROPS/OPG (TOP Guard, Level I) provides protection in the event of accidental rollovers
and falling objects.
The underbody beneath the engine features a mesh cover to prevent gravel and soil from entering.
Steel Crawler (Optional)
A rugged steel crawler is an excellent option for using your KX080-4S on worksites that may compromise the
durability or integrity of the standard rubber crawler. In addition to an 18-inch crawler, an extra-wide 24-inch
model is available for increased floatation.
Swivel Negative Brake
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 inclines or when transporting the
excavator between worksites.

Triple Opening Hood
All three of the excavator’s access panels can open at once. This allows you to easily inspect and view the
centrally located components of the KX080-4S. You can easily access the hydraulic components under the center
hood, or the battery, oil filter and tool box under the right hood. Maintaining your excavator has never been this
Variable Speed Fan
The variable speed fan drive provides the right amount of cooling efficiency by regulating the engine fan speed
according to the ambient temperature after the air passes through the radiator. The benefits are reduced fan noise
and fuel savings through effective use of engine output.
Two-Piece Hose Design
Kubota’s innovative two-piece hose design for the dozer blade reduces hose replacement time by nearly 60%
compared to non-joint types. This design virtually eliminates the need to enter the machine for maintenance.
Double Structure Muffler
The double structure muffler controls increases in muffler temperature caused by automatic regeneration of
Tie down points are now installed on the track frame and the cabin.
Following the excellence of Kubota’s Intelligent Control System,
the new digital panel puts convenience at the operator’s fingertips.
Featuring easier button operation, the user-friendly digital panel is
positioned to the front right corner of the operator. This
operator facing wider display greatly improves visibility. With easier
access, simpler settings, easy-to-read indicators and alerts, you’ll
always be aware of the excavator’s functioning status.
Operation History Record
Operation history is automatically recorded on the KX080-4S. You can
trace back up to 90 days of the machine’s usage dates by simply
checking the built-in calendar.
Automatic Regeneration Mode
The automatic regeneration system automatically burns particulate matter (soot) that accumulates in the
diesel particulate filter (DPF) muffler. The soot is burned when the engine is operating at sufficient speed for
regeneration. If the engine speed is lower than the required level for regeneration, the indicator requests an
increase in the engine speed to keep the accumulation level low and the DPF clean. A service call or DPF filter
replacement is required when the accumulated soot reaches a level that reduces the engine speed.
