Kubota L5040 taking agricultural market by storm

There has been unexpected interest in the Kubota L5040 from the farmers around the country and especially in the Western Cape. This is according to Robert Keir, Communications Officer of Smith Power Equipment, which distribute Kubota tractors, TLBs and RTVs in South Africa.

The combination of a competitive price, parts availability, simple operation and amazing power makes the Kubota L-Series tractors ideal for famers no matter what their task may be from estate maintenance and commercial landscaping to general farming,” says Keir

Some of the more salient features of the L5040, which delivers 38.9 kW power, include:

ENGINES – Kubota are world leaders in designing and selling Diesel engines up to 100hp. The 4-cylinder turbo-charged engines fitted in Kubota tractor ranges meet all the requirements of emission legislation around the world. Kubota are recognised cutting-edge leaders in this field and ensure exceptional power output together with long life fuel- efficient, smooth and quiet operation.

BRAKING – very smooth and effective four-wheel braking action is automatically achieved in 2 or 4-wheel drives through wet-brake disc packs in the differential system. The hand brake features a pedal latch and conventional lever system.

SHUTTLE CLUTCH – just under the steering wheel is a Shuttle operating lever, this lever has three positions: Middle = Neutral; Forward = Forward; Rear= Reverse. The lever must be in F or R before the tractor can move. The benefit of this system is that clutchless changes can be made on the move when operating implements such as front-end loaders or forks and rear- mounted forklifts.

Keir says that these features are unique to Kubota. “Kubota has a blend of unique technologies in our tractors and are part of the reason why they are one the fastest growing tractor brands in Southern Africa and the world.” he says.
