Kubota Tractor Corporation has announced the launch of the new L60LE Series. With launch of the L3560HSTC-LE last year, three new models have been added to complete the new L60LE series, which now offers a total of four models — two cab models and two ROPS models, that range 37 to 42 gross horsepower. The new L60LE compact tractors will be available starting November 2020.
Kubota’s new L60LE Series is comprised of the L3560LE and the larger framed L4060LE, each with cab and ROPS models, offering a total of four models in the new series. They are built with a heavy-duty large chassis, all metal hood and fenders and equipped with a Kubota-built diesel engine. Kubota’s electronic HST Plus Transmission comes standard on all models, the company says.
Other performance features include a heavy-duty three-point hitch with a lift capacity of 2,646 lb. (24 in. behind the pin) on the L3560LE and 2,760 lb. (24 in. behind the pin) on the L4060LE. Additionally, with available options for the LA555 or LA805 front loader, the L60LE Series has a loader lift capacity of up to 1,715 lb. (at pivot pin) and a front loader maximum lift height of up to 105 in. (at pivot pin).
Kubota says the BH77 and BH92 backhoes are performance-matched with the L60LE Series to deliver more power and greater capacity. A mid-PTO option can also be used with a variety of performance-matched, front-mounted snow removal implements. And the L60LE Series can be equipped with a full line of performance-matched implements and attachments from Land Pride.
Additionally, the company says the new series includes premium features such as a larger chassis size, low engine noise, high performance HST Plus transmission, smooth loader operation and spacious operator platform. To further customize the tractor, Kubota offers a wide variety of tire tread types and sizes. For example, agricultural tires are available for heavy-duty field work requiring maximum traction; turf tires are designed for mowing with minimal ground disruption; and, industrial tires are designed for loader work requiring a more everyday-use style tread.
Standard features for both cab and ROPs models include a wide, spacious operator area and standard deluxe suspension seat with swivel feature, as well as standard tilt steering, electric PTO switch, full-flat deck with rubber floormat, wide step, cup holder, full open hood and ground level fuel tank fill, the company says.
All cab models come standard with the wide, deluxe Grand L cab with heater and A/C. Optional accessories include an air-ride seat, ROPs canopies, front weights, and rear hydraulic remote valves, Kubota adds.
