Two new Kawasaki models, the 42ZV-2, a .78 cu. yd. (.6 cu m) loader, and the 45ZV-2, a 1.18 cu. yd. (.9 cu m) loader, are designed and engineered with all of the performance and reliability of the larger Kawasaki wheel loaders, but in a smaller package. With standard features such as a hydraulic quick coupler, third spool hydraulics and reliable Kubota engines, these loaders are small in size but big in value, according to the manufacturer.

Rugged and Dependable

With Tier IV interim emissions-compliant Kubota engines, heavy box frames and a well balanced design, these compact Kawasaki wheel loaders provide stable, reliable operation. HN bushing technology, easy access electrical relays, and the side-by-side aluminum radiator and oil cooler provide easy access for maintenance.

Operator Comfort

From the walk-through cab design, to the easy-read monitors, this is an operator-friendly wheel loader. A rubber-mounted cab is engineered to reduce noise and vibration, and the machine has a suspension seat and pillar-less full length windows.

The 45ZV-2 features an electronically controlled hydrostatic powertrain providing quick, smooth acceleration. The wrap-around counterweight allows for a very stable, well balanced loader, according to the manufacturer.
