Kubota-M7-171 tractorFarm machinery

The first UK showing of new higher-horsepower tractors from Kubota will feature at Lamma, with examples of the 130-170hp M7-series on hand for inspection.

A semi-powershift (24×24 or 40×40 creep) transmission with four-speed powershift will be available in standard and premium specification, but the K-VT stepless unit will be available only with the more comprehensive premium specification, which includes a 110-litre/min load-sensing hydraulics package.

Both transmissions are sourced from ZF, but the all-new tractors are powered by Kubota’s own 6.12-litre four-cylinder engine, with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and a diesel particulates filter (DPF) employed to meet emissions rules.
