Excavator U10-5

Industrial Equipment

The ultra-compact U10-5 1.2 tonne excavator sets the standard for excavators in its class, powered by a renowned Kubota 10.3HP engine, providing exceptional reliability and performance. Designed to operate safely in the tightest of spaces, the U10-5 features zero tail swing, hydraulic pilot controls, front foldable ROPS and variable track down to just 750mm width.

Zero Tail Swing Design

The U10-5 has an ultra-compact design with zero tail swing allowing you to work safely in narrow areas, ensuring that you are working within the track width of the machine.

Hydraulic Side Levers

An improved operator layout now features hydraulic side levers ensuring operation of comfort and reducing fatigue. Further to this, the U10-5 features a safety start meaning the machine won’t start unless you manually move the levers to the unlock position, to support safe operation.

Adjustable Track Width

Narrowing your track width is easy with a hydraulic adjustable track width down to 750mm for access to tight areas, or extended up to 990mm to increase stability.

Front Foldable ROPS

The ROPS Roll-Over-Protection-System is now foldable to the front and is in the width of the machine’s body. Folding the ROPS from work to transport position can be done simply with a pin adjustment allowing you to track under doorways and low hanging branches and can be transported at minimal height.

Modern Exterior Design

The U10-5 has a newly updated exterior design to run inline with Kubota’s latest range of excavators, along with a super bright LED boom light delivering plenty of illumination to work in dark conditions.


Powered by a 10.3HP Kubota engine renowned worldwide for their exceptional reliability and maximum performance. It offers low noise, low vibration levels and exceptional fuel efficiency, with Tier IV stage V emissions. Maintenance can easily be done, simply by tilting the engine cover up allowing access to servicing components.

Pin Bushing

To increase life of components, swing bracket pins have bushings.
