Kubota M6002: power and comfort
Kubota’s new M6002 series was presented to the public for the first time in February, at the FIMA in Zaragoza. This series, consisting of the models M6122, M6132 and M6142, was created as an effective solution for those who work on livestock farms or on farms with animals.
The tractors in this series are equipped with a 4-cylinder 6108 Stage V Kubota engine and are available in 121 Hp, 131 Hp and 141 Hp versions with additional power boost of 20 Hp for high performance in transport operations. This engine has a much longer particulate filter cleaning interval, increased from 3000 to 6000 hours, which makes maintenance operations easier.
The transmission has been improved; 8-speed powershift with progressive adjustment of the gearbox designed to deal with high speeds and heavy towing operations. These models also feature the new Xpress restart function which directly activates the main clutch by pressing the brake pedal. The operator is thus able to stop the tractor without having to use the clutch pedal.
The cabin is also new, with a new multifunction lever on the armrest with reverse shuttle, engine function memory, lift control and automatic transmission. Its ergonomic side console for operating all the main levers is positioned to the right of the operator’s seat and is easily accessible from the armrest, for maximum driving comfort. The large roof offers excellent visibility and is particularly useful for working with front accessories. It features 10 standard full LED work lights and 6 additional optional LED lights for 360° coverage. Finally, the cabin is also equipped with a Premium Grammar seat and mechanical suspension.
