At 59 horsepower, Kubota Tractor™s M59 utility backhoe has a 12-foot digging depth and 7,597 pounds of bucket digging power. The loader end has 3,960 pounds of lifting capacity and lift height high enough to load a standard dump truck. A flat deck and walk-through step makes switching to the backhoe end a snap. The machine™s HST Plus transmission provides automated control of both the pump and motor. Another advantage of the HST: a smoother, more responsive pedal.
