LinkedIn +

Kubota has introduced two new ranges of compact tractors, meeting Stage V emissions regulations and completed with a refreshed design.

The latest L1 tractors are powered by 45hp, 51hp and 55hp Kubota diesel engines and come with a choice of a three-range HST hydrostatic gearbox or a synchronised manual transmission with eight forward and reverse speeds.

A folding rear ROPS frame and a height-adjustable steering wheel enhance operator safety and comfort and the L1 is completed with a maximum rear lift capacity of 1,750kg.

Three L2 tractors run from 45hp to 61hp, in either cabin or ROPS model variants. A 16×16 mechanical transmission or three-range hydrostatic version is available and the machines offer a 1,750kg rear lift capacity.

The L2 range is said to have a user-focused design, including one-piece engine cowling that can be fully opened for easy access to service points. Additionally, the front axle has a bevel gear drive and there is integrated power steering for manoeuvrability.

Both ranges can be specified with Kubota front loaders, with prices starting at £15,549 for the L1382, increasing to £22,126 for the L2452 ROPS machine.
