Why would I want to build a rock wall with this 4.5 tonne excavator?

Rock walls or rock retaining walls are an easy solution for gardeners and homeowners with not much space but an eye for aesthetics. Not only do rock walls look good, they can stand the test of time… much like our Kubota excavator. The 4.5 tonne Kubota KX040-4 rubber-tracked excavator’s most popular attachment is the hydraulic rock grab attachment fitted to the dipper arm with a quick hitch fitted for easy bucket changes.

The bucket can level the ground before placing the rock with the rock grab. The rock grab’s rugged blade is designed to push the rocks firmly into position. You can get in and out of the job in the 4.5 tonne excavator without damaging the ground beneath you, as the rubber tracks leave no physical damage to the work zone. Rock wall done!
