History of Kubota Tractors
The Japanese concern has set up serial production of tractor equipment since the 60s of the last century. The results of the corporation's half-century presence on the market are more than a hundred different products and 4 basic series. The Kubota range of tractors predominantly contains mid-range equipment and compact units. The manufacturer produces special equipment in the engine power range: 18 - 140 hp. These indicators are sufficient for the operation of machines from the private sector to municipal services and large agricultural holdings.
Basic series of Kubota tractors
The variable range of Kubota's special equipment has a set of common features. The models combine maneuverability and compactness with sufficient traction for agricultural operations.
Completely, the Kubota tractor range includes 4 series:
BX. The line is succinctly described as a mini tractor unit, where the main emphasis is on the safety of the operator. Cars with a capacity of up to 25 hp. optimal for use in private households.
B. Compact tractors Kubota targeted at small-scale farming. High maneuverability and small dimensions of the devices are aimed at working in confined spaces. Alternatively, the B series models are an excellent choice for landscaping.
L. Series additionally focused on the utility sector. Power 30 h.p. enough for laying pipelines, cleaning territories. The functionality of the units expands the ability to install auxiliary working units: buckets, bulldozer dumps.
M. Models with the most powerful engine of the Kubota tractor.
The last category of equipment from the Japanese manufacturer is capable of developing power up to 140 hp. The Kubota tractors of this series are equipped with an E-CDIS engine with a central direct injection system. The unit is characterized by low noise level, economical fuel consumption without loss of performance.
In fact, the Japanese manufacturer predominantly manufactures small tractors. Mid-range cars are represented exclusively by the M series.
A distinctive feature of the small-sized Kubota tractors is the use of a hydraulic return mechanism. The technology provides a change in the trajectory of tractor equipment, without a clutch pedal. Another important characteristic of Kubota mini tractors is four-wheel drive, with the optional disconnection of the rear wheelset.
A striking example of a mini-tractor of the eastern concern is the model 1200. Basic technical characteristics of the compact tractors Kubota:
2-cylinder branded diesel engine with a volume of 479 cc;
power - 12 hp;
rotation speed with PTO 540/1000 rpm;
the number of forward / reverse gears is 6 and 2, respectively.
An attractive aspect of the Kubota agricultural tractor is its low operating costs. Fuel consumption by small-sized equipment does not exceed 1.4 l / h.
A tractor with an enclosed cab can be purchased for increased operator comfort. The demand for a specific model is determined by the scope of potential operation: on the site or in a greenhouse, other premises.
Where high tractive effort is needed
Separately, in the model range of Japanese agricultural machinery, there is the M series. The machines perform a wide range of tasks in soil cultivation and sowing. The technical characteristics of the Kubota tractors are conveniently viewed on the M9540 model.
The primary parameters of this variation of agricultural machinery:
4-cylinder engine of the Kubota V3800-DI-TE3 tractor with turbocharging;
rated power parameters with a rotation speed of 100 hp, 2600 rpm, respectively;
the working volume of the diesel engine is 3769 cc;
fuel reserve - 110 liters;
turning radius - 3.8 m.
The lifting capacity of the tractor at the link end is fixed at 4100 kg. The maximum travel speed is 39 km / h. The lower travel limit is 430 m / h. The switching of the driving parameters is carried out by a 6-speed gearbox. Each wheel is equipped with a wet disc hydraulic braking system.
Subgroup GX Series M
These are the most powerful models produced by the Kubota Corporation. The flagship tractor product is the M135GX. The tractor is equipped with a proprietary V6108-TI-CRS engine with the following configuration:
135 h.p. power;
190 l fuel tank.
The total weight of the equipment remains quite low - 4.7 tons. The dimensions of the advanced model are kept relatively compact. The length of the tractor is limited to 4.4, with a wheelbase of 2.69 m. The carrying capacity of the Kubot flagship at the ends of the rear arms.
