Power, Control & Simplicity

High-performing efficient tractor.


Fully synchronised main and shuttle transmission. This efficient 16-forward and 16-reverse gear transmission is synchronised for smooth, shift-on-the-go operation. Now, all you need to do is simply step on the clutch, shift and go. With Kubota’s Carbon-Cone Synchro-Shuttle, faster and smoother forward/reverse directional changes are easier to attain. This Carbon-Cone design makes shuttle shifting lighter and easier for instant responses.


Responsive hydrostatic power steering makes every job easier. Straight lines and tight turns alike are taken smoothly, while steering remains easy and worry-free when a heavy load is applied.
