Kubota will be re-affirming its commitment to UK agricultural industry at LAMMA and also showcase its move into higher horsepower tractors

The Japanese-based manufacturer now has a major manufacturing facility at Dunkirk, and has repeatedly stated it will invest in becoming a global brand in the agricultural industry and challenging conventional brands.

It will be showing its complete range of high performance tractors and machinery on Stand R10, with its new flagship M7002 Series (up to 170hp) taking centre stage on its UK show debut. Kubota’s stand will also feature its popular M5001 Series MGX-III tractors and an exclusive UK show preview of the M5001 (Narrow) tractors.

Also catching the eye will be new orange-liveried implements which will also be on display, such as its RA2072 twin rotor rakes, BV5260 variable chamber baler, WR1600 trailed turntable wrapper and DM1024, DMC6032N and DMC7032N disc mowers. The new TE6576 mounted tedder, SE3185 chopper, DSXW1500 weighing spreader and VS330H pendulum spreader will also be on show.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to find out more about Kubota Farm Solutions, the company’s unique support offering which offers farmers and contractors complete aftersales support, servicing, and financing.

Rob Edwards, farm business development manager for Kubota UK, said: "Kubota Farm Solutions is designed to help farmers improve productivity, but not at any cost. Kubota Finance, for example, enables farmers to make planned investments with ease and convenience. Whether financing or leasing, they will benefit from Kubota’s professional advice and continued support.

“We are very excited to introduce the new M7002 Series to the UK market and for farmers to get a closer look at its enhanced performance capabilities. The introduction of this new range is yet another example of our continued investment into the agricultural industry and our ambitious growth plans as a business."

In addition to Kubota’s ag commitment, the company’s groundcare products will be showcased on stand R41.

The M7002 Series:

The main innovation in Kubota’s new M7002 Series is the new six-speed Powershift transmission, which as either 30/15 or 54/27 if equipped with creeper.

A number of its specifications have been improved, such as an increase in maximum permissible weight to 11,500 kg, offering a greater payload, together with efficient engine performance focused on increased power and lower fuel consumption.

Other key features include an increased tyre size range with the incorporation of 600/60R28 sizes for the front axle and 710/60R38 for the rear axle to minimise compaction and maximise traction. Comfort has been improved with the inclusion of a deluxe seat, LED working lights for better visibility and a revised finish inside the cabin. Kubota has also increased the customisation options based on the standard model, meaning it is now possible to fit electrical rear-view mirrors.

Technological improvements have also been made in the operation of the main joystick and the increased headland management system (HMS) memory, making work notably easier.

Autosteer has been optimised, giving it a new 'nudge' function, for example. Thanks to this, the driver can see the distance from the set route in centimetres and several HMS settings can be created, up to a maximum of 20.
