Hello and welcome back to our excavator series

and today with me we’ve got our 6 Tonne

excavator the KX060-5 from Kubota.

In this tutorial video we’re going to

cover how to successfully change the

bucket on one of these machines. And to

get started we need to make sure we get

into the machine and get it running.

Let’s get ourselves into the machine

unlock the door

make sure it locks securely in place and

enter the machine using three points to


Now once comfortably in your seat pop

your seat belt on

and commence your startup procedure.

To begin your change the bucket sequence,

start by lowering your left arm arm rest

and picking up the bucket

with your boom.

Crowd the bucket round on itself all the

way around.

And now disengage the lock by using the

hydraulic quick hitch button on the dash.

You’ll hear a buzzing warning sound and

we’re going to crowd the bucket around further

to disengage the pins.

You’ll hear the pins unlock and now

you can lower the bucket to the floor.

And to lock the quick hitch once again

just simply turn off the button which

will automatically lock the pins into

place for you.

Now when you’ve manoeuvred to get to

your new bucket you need to reopen the

hitch which will follow the same process.

Crowd the hitch all the way around to nine


unlock the hitch by using the quick

hitch button again.

Crowd to nine o’clock

to open those pins and now you’re ready

to pick up your new bucket.

To lock the pins into place

engage the quick hitch. And just to

ensure that the bucket’s secure

simply place it on the floor and put a

little bit of pressure through it to

ensure that it’s correctly engaged.

Now you’ve successfully changed your

bucket on your excavator.

And that’s it from our excavator

tutorial today on our 6 Tonne KX060-5

from Kubota. Now if you’re having any

problems still changing the bucket on

your machine please get in contact with

your local depot as soon as possible but

hopefully, this video will troubleshoot

99% of the problems that you may come

across. Thank you ever so much again for
