Kubota’s much anticipated M7001 Series tractors have been arriving at dealerships and on farms across the UK since the turn of the year, and the company’s three latest models were on display at Cereals 2016.
Hailed as a key new addition to the 135-175 HP tractor category, the M7001 Series models took centrestage at Cereals.
Available in three options, Standard, Premium and Premium KVT, the M7001 Series is designed for carrying out a wide range of jobs on both mixed and arable farms and comes with a host of features to maximise performance, reliability and operator comfort and control.
It is powered by Kubota’s V6108 engine which has full Stage IV compliance, including DPF and SCR technology to clean up emissions, which Kubota say results in a cleaner, more environmentally friendly tractor.
The Standard and Premium models feature a powershift transmission whereas the Premium KVT is a CVT. The Premium models in the M7001 Series range feature an interactive touch-screen K-Monitor that manages all functionality intuitively, including headland management, ISO-BUS implement control, GPS-controlled auto-guidance and a camera function.
Rob Edwards, Kubota UK’s Business Development Manager for Agriculture comments: “Cereals is one of the premier events in agricultural calendar and one that still draws huge numbers of visitors each year. At last year’s show our new M7001 Series tractors were unveiled to the market, but we’re delighted this year to have had the opportunity to speak to an audience of new and prospective customers, some of whom have already put the new machines through their paces as part of dealer ride and drive days.”
Kubota also showcased its MGX-II series (100HP to 135HP), its popular M60 Series and range of RTV utility vehicles.
