Breaker Couple & Operation (6T Excavator)
6T Excavator (Kubota KX060-5)
Hello everyone and welcome back to our
excavator series and in today’s video
we’ve got our brand new 6 tonne
excavator the Kubota
KX060-5. And in today’s video what we’re
going to do is take you through the full
procedure of attaching a breaker,
operating, it and it’s successfully
depressurizing it. To get started we need
to jump into the cabin
and as always, to enter the cabin we’re
going to use three points of contact.
Firstly securing the door in position
and then climbing into the excavator.
Now as soon as we’re in the excavator
we’re going to do is pop our seat belt
on which are fun on your left hand side.
And now we’re ready to start the
procedure to attach the breaker. First
thing we need to do is make sure there’s
no pressure in the system to start with.
We do this
by popping our key
and into our ignition and turning it to
Drop your left hand armrest
and then on your right pilot control
select the auxiliary output.
We can now vent the auxiliary by rocking
the toggle switch on a right hand pilot
Now once you’ve rocked that toggle a few
times you can key off the machine and
so you can attach the brake hoses to the
Now to attach the auxiliary all we need
to do is unravel the pipes
and then connect them
into the auxiliary output one.
Making sure you turn and lock them when
in position. This ensures that the
attachment won’t come loose when in
operation. Once you do one side you walk
around to the other
to couple up the other auxiliary hose.
Now you have successfully attached your hoses to
your excavator we can jump back into the
machine and get ready to start the work.
Now we’re back in our in the excavator
let’s pop our seat belt back on
and we could commence our normal startup
procedure. Once the machine is running

place you’d like to commence the work.
Once in working position simply select
the auxiliary output on the right hand
and then use the right toggle switch to
operate the breaker.
Once you’ve finished with the attachment
simply light down into the service
Now the breaker is in the service
position we can commence the
Now to start this sequence all we need
to do is key off, wait a couple of seconds.
Key on to position one,
and drop our left arm arm rest.
Now select the auxiliary again on the
right hand pilot control.
And rock the toggle switch to release
the pressure out of the hoses.
In doing so you’ll see your hoses Flex
on your breaker
notifying you there is no more pressure
in those and can be released with ease.
Now you’re at a point where you can get
out the excavator and detach the hoses.
Now to detach our hoses make sure that
the bubble lines up with the little
insert and simply lift
Making sure that you roll up
your hoses for when the excavators in
And there you go guys that is the full
correct procedure to attach a breaker
