Kubota has unveiled the latest additions to its 100hp tractor line-up for the first time in public at LAMMA 2017.
The new M5001 Series, a brand new range of 95HP to 113HP tractors, powered by a four cylinder V3800 Kubota engine, includes a host of leading edge technology to maximise power, performance and end-user comfort and control. The range has been introduced to replace and succeed the company’s previous M8540 and M9960 models.
The launch of the M5001 Series completes the renewal of M Series, which started with the introduction of the Flagship M7001 Series, introduced to target the 130HP to 170HP sector and the company also invested over €40 million in a new production facility in Northern France.
Kubota is the first manufacturer to incorporate a CRS (Common Rail System) equipped with a urea catalyst (SCR), a system to recirculate exhaust gases with water refrigeration (EGR), a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC). The combination of these technologies optimises operation and reduces power consumption. In addition, this 16-valve engine meets Phase 4 emission requirements.
Also on show was the new generation MGX Series range boasting machines from 90 to 140HP. With one of the largest cabs in its class, the MGX range offers operator comfort and visibility.
The four-cylinder engine, combined with its eight-gear powershift transmission allows users to quickly switch between multiple applications without losing power ensuring difficult daily challenges are overcome easily with the modern engine technology.
The new range comes complete with Intelli-Shift, a smart powershift transmission system, which makes changing gears easier, either automatically or manually; particulatly useful when undertaking work on difficult ground conditions such as slopes.
Available in five models – M95GX, M105GX, M115GX, M125GX and M135GX – Kubota say the series is fully equipped to provide farmers with increased output and improved productivity, more comfortable driving and full visibility from its large cab.
