Powerful Kubota Engine

The R430 boasts a gross rating of 47.6 HP (SAE J 1995) that provides the extra muscle needed for all of the chores that the loader is capable of performing. 

Comfortable Work Station

Comfort and convenience are the keys to operator efficiency. The working station is mounted on rubber ISO mounts to minimize sounds and vibrations. Increase your comfort level in all seasons with an enclosed heated and A/C cooled cab. 

Load Sensing Transmission

As the travel and loading conditions change, the R430's transmission automatically shifts to compensate to provide maximum torque and speed for efficient ground speed operation. The manual switch can be operated with a convenient button located on the loader control level. 

Limited Slip Differential

Mud, sand, snow are no problem for the R430's front limited slip axle. If a front wheel slips, the power is transferred to the opposite wheel to restore traction. 

Hybrid Link Design

The well-balanced cylinder position of the Z link provides strong bucket break out forces and a lift path almost parallel to the ground for superior reach and lift. 

Rear Backhoe

The R430 takes versatility to a new level in compact wheel loaders with an optional backhoe attachment. The RBK4009SA backhoe allows the operator to dig a trench up to seven feet deep and 24 inches wide.
