Performance-Matched Kubota-Built LA435 Swift-Tach Loader

Why would you ever want to remove your front end loader? One good reason is that removing the front loader helps prevent ground compaction and turf damage when mowing. It also reduces your turning radius when working in confined areas or around trees. In fact, you’ll find that there are plenty of times that removing your front loader will make your job quicker and easier. That’s why it’s so important that the B01 series swift-tach front loader can be removed quickly, without ever leaving the operator's station.

  • Curved Boom Design – Allows for better visibility when performing front loader work
  • Simultaneous Lift and Curl Functionality - One of the key advantages to Kubota-built front loaders is the hydraulic flow design which allows for the bucket to curl or dump while raising or lowering the loader at the same time. This maximizes efficiency and allows for quick and smooth operation.
