SSL's main market is North America. It is used for multiple purposes, such as construction, civil engineering, and agriculture.
For the development of society, it is crucial to enhance social infrastructure (social environment), such as constructions and roads. Housing demand in North America, in particular, has been showing an upward trend.
For the sustainable development of society, it is necessary to improve work efficiency, paying attention to the preservation of natural environment and cost reduction for public works and construction companies. Under these circumstances, construction machinery that can meet a wide range of construction needs of not only urban centers but also in rural areas is expected to play an extremely significant role.
Kubota launched skid steer loaders (SSL) in 2016, taking a new step forward as a comprehensive small-sized construction machinery manufacturer. By adding the SSL to its main product lineup of compact excavators, wheel loaders and compact truck loaders, Kubota aims to advance from the world's top share holder in the compact excavator market to the top share holder in the entire small-sized construction machinery market. In such position, Kubota will provide greater support for urban infrastructure development around the world, contributing to the creation of a more comfortable, safe, and beautiful living environment.
