What is the Kubota U-10 compact excavator?

Ultra-compact. Enhanced operator protection. The efficient and easy-to-use Kubota U10-3 with zero tail swing is the mini-excavator you can count on to get the job done. Highly trusted in the compact excavator market, the efficient combustion created by our engine’s unique Three Vortex Combustion System reduces exhaust emission, noise and vibration. Its layout also puts most components within easy reach for faster maintenance.

Here at Forth Plant Hire we have seen pretty much every construction job under the sun. So here are our ideal scenarios for where you are likely going to need this mini excavator.

  •  Digging (obviously I hear you say!)
  • Breaking concrete
  • Clearing and loading
  • Lifting

If you are unsure about what machine is best for your job, then give us a ring or pop into the office for a brew, we will be happy to have a chat.


Please note, this digger comes complete with x3 ditching buckets.

Typical Projects used for?

The typical projects that the Kubota U-10 micro excavator is used for are:

  • Digging (obviously)
  • Clearing debris like fallen trees after some windy winter weather
  • Removing underbrush with one of the many attachments
  • Loading the debris onto another vehicle or trailer

These excavators are ideal for loading and unloading trucks with sacks containing construction materials, due to the swing system.
