KUBOTA has launched its new M6002 tractor series which consists of three models – and these are mainly designed for livestock and mixed farms.

The Japanese manufacturer said the new tractor had been developed entirely by them when they unveiled the first model at FIMA 2020, the International Fair of Agricultural Machinery in Zaragoza, Spain. The three new M6002 series models – the M6122, M6132 and M6142 – boosts technology that addressed both the increasing focus on sustainability and the needs of modern farmers.

Kubota said the new series will be commercially available during the second half of 2020. German Martínez, VP sales tractor business unit at Kubota Holding Europe, said: “The new M6002 Series is a completely new concept built 100 percent by Kubota. These models address the majority of needs from dairy and mixed farms looking for power, efficiency, low cost of operation, manoeuvrability, ease of use and comfort combined with Kubota’s well-known reputation for durability and reliability.”

With this new tractor, farmers will benefit from new features such as the Xpress restart function, efficient new eight-speed powershift transmission and the 4.5m turning radius with the patented Kubota Bi-speed system.

The M6002 series is equipped with a four cylinder 6108 Stage V engine which features the latest stage V Kubota technology increasing both efficiency and reliability. This one unit offers three horse power levels of 121hp, 131hp and 141hp with an additional 20hp power boost for transport operations.

They have an extended cleaning interval of the DPF from 3000 to 6000 hours to improve maintenance performance and there’s also a large 230-litre fuel tank, which is useful for long working days.

The transmission is completely new and features an eight speed powershift transmission, with shifting progressive adjustment designed for high speed and heavy towing capacity.

These powershift models include the new Xpress restart function that controls the master clutch directly via brake pedal activation. The driver can stop the tractor without using the clutch pedal.

The new large cab of this tractor range stands out for its new interior and exterior. It features a new multi-function lever arm rest with shuttle, engine memory, linkage control and auto shifting control.

An ergonomic side console for all main lever operation is located on the right side of the driver´s seat and on the same radius point of the arm rest for maximum driver comfort.

The wide sunroof offers optimal visibility, especially useful for front loader applications. It features 10 standard full LED working lights and six optional LED additional working lights for a 360-degree angle coverage.

Finally, the cab is equipped with a Premium Grammar seat and a mechanical cab suspension, for the highest levels of comfort.

The new heavy duty rear and front axle allows for high speed travel with increased payload capacity and heavy front loader application.

The Kubota Bi-speed system included as standard provides an improved 4.5m turning radius, making the M6002 an ideal tractor for tight working applications.

Moreover the M6002 series offers additional performance, thanks to its hydraulic power steering system with CCLS pump of 115l/min which improves tractor reactivity. For the back-end, the M6002s have a seven-tonne lift capacity and 115 litres/min flow rate to manage some pretty hefty implements.
