There’s something for everyone in Kubota Australia’s autumn catalogue with four exciting product releases across agriculture, lifestyle and construction
Worth a special mention is the new M5-1 ROPS (Rollover protective structure) tractor series.
The M5-1 ROPS series get their power from a 3.8-litre engine that produces power of 68 and 76kW (93 and 103hp) in either standard or narrow models.
They operate from a lower engine speed of 2400rpm for specialist operations, while there are six synchronised gears in three ranges to provide a wide range of options.
Kubota General Manager for Marketing Australia and New Zealand Malcolm Owens said Kubota’s exciting new M5-1 ROPS Series will provide greater flexibility for users working with height restrictions, tight spaces, and uneven surfaces.
“The M5-1 ROPS operator station’s advanced simplicity combined with a flat floor allows easy mounting and operation. The shorter stature keeps users in close contact with those around them and prioritises worker welfare,” Mr Owens said.
Also added to the Kubota line is the RTV520 Utility Vehicle that sets a new standard in utility vehicle performance and comfort.
Drawing on the tried and tested RTV500, the refreshed and bold new look of the RTV520 has improved suspension and increased engine displacement.
“The new water-cooled two-cylinder engine, with 13kW (17.4hp), is just as quiet as the previous model with very little vibration, while noise at the operator’s ears remains at 83dBA,” Mr Owens said.
Other new products in Kubota’s autumn 2021 catalogue is the SVL97-2 Track Loader that heightens Kubota’s focus on comfort, safety and flexibility, while the R540 compact wheel loader is Kubota’s best compact wheel loader yet.
Replacing the existing SVL95-2s Track Loader, the SVL97-2 keeps the same stand out features and specifications while modifications have been made to the cab, diesel exhaust fluid tank (DEF), engine and design changes to improve quality and function.
“These updates increase the SVL97-2’s longevity. The large cabin design offers a unique front sliding window and improved sealing ensuring a cleaner cabin environment and better air conditioning,” Mr Owens said.
While the all new R540 compact wheel loader replaces the established R065 with a range of new functions.
Showcasing a redesigned cabin, multi-function joystick and increased rated operating capacity, the R540 prioritises comfort and stability.
“The added space and simple design in the R540 deliver better visibility and more intuitive operation across both the cab and canopy models.
“Operators can revel in our new pilot-controlled joystick featuring an integrated auxiliary valve switch which creates a smoother experience for the user,” Mr Owens said.
Customers can equip themselves with necessary implements for autumn tasks thanks to a $500 credit towards the purchase of Land Pride performance matched attachments.
This bonus credit is available when purchasing a new Kubota BX, B, L, MX & M Series tractor.
“Kubota tractors, utility vehicles, mowers, power equipment, drills, precision planters and other professional farming and construction equipment are all documented in Kubota’s 2021 Autumn catalogue,” Mr Owens said.
