Cabin Walkthrough & Controls Mini Digger (1.5T Excavator)
1.5T Excavator (Kubota KX19-4)
Hello and welcome back to our excavator series
and in today’s episode, we’re going to
help you familiarize yourself with the
controls and the internal features on
KX19-4. Now if you’re ready please feel
free to jump into the cabin with me and
we’ll start from there.
To start with we’re going to enter
the machine using three points of
contact. When you get in, you’re going
to be surrounded by all these different
controls and that’s what we’re going to
help you go through right now. So to
start with you’ve got our seat belt which you
should attach before you start using the
And then you’ve got your pilot controls
in front of you. Left hand pilot control,
controls the arm of the machine and also
the turning of the machine as well. To
extend the arm of the digger
we push it forward, to bring it closer we
bring it back. And if we want to rotate
on our axis where we are we can either
go left or right using this control.
On your right-hand side, you’ve got your
other pilot control and this controls
the boom of the machine. Obviously, we
push it forward the boom will extend
further away from the machine pull it
back it will move closer.
To crowd the bucket of the machine
we simply move this right hand
joystick to nine o’clock.
And to reopen it or uncrowded it, we’ll
move it to three o’clock. And those are
your basic controls to help you use the
excavator. Whilst digging, also you’ll
find on the right-hand joystick is our
horn and also our auxiliary toggle switch.
From here in front of us we’ve
got our drive levers that operate the
left and right tracks that can be used
together or one at a time.
Now below these tracking levers, we’ve
got our boom lock and underneath the
right pedal we’ve got our boom slew
where we can turn the boom of the
machine either left or right aiding us
whilst we’re doing our excavation.
Coming back up we’ve got our heads-up display
where we’re showing our fuel our
oil temperatures and any hazard warning
lights that may display.
Further on our heads-up display, we’ve
got three buttons at the bottom left one
is for our auxiliary
the middle one is our servicing button
and on the right, it changes the hours to
RPM on the heads-up display.
Moving further back we’ve got our dozer
blade which is operated by pushing
forwards to go down
and then pull backwards
to raise. On top of the dozer blad we’ve
got our a green button which allows the
machine to Fast Track whilst in motion.
When we push this button a green hare
will appear on your heads-up display to
notify you. Further back we’ve got our
ignition where our key goes in to start
the machine. To the right of that we’ve
got our throttle that’s shown by the
tortoise and the hare.
Below that, moving back towards you
you’ve got your lights
and also you’ve got your beacon light;
they’re two separate switches.
But above that most importantly we have
got our quick hitch operation button. Now
if you’re not too sure how to operate
the quick hitch please feel free just to
click the link above where we’ve made a
video dedicated especially to this
machine on how to operate the quick
hitch. And that’s the basic components of
the internal cabin of the KX19-4.
Now follow me to show you where you can
fuel the machine and get yourself
To refuel the machine you can find the
fuel cap on the right-hand side of the
digger simply twist to unlock,
and close accordingly. Please note that
all machines from WHC Hire must be
refuelled with white diesel.
