Die Kubota M8540-laeprofieltrekker van 63,1 kW is een van die modelle wat by die Synag-melkboerdery diens doen. Dit is soortgelyk aan die M9540 (70,9 kW) op die foto, maar het ’n nouer bakwerk en effens minder enjinkrag.

As jy nog nie met dié kompakte toerusting se groot krag kennis gemaak het nie, kan jy gerus glo wat boere oor Kubota se trekkers

Tony Teerink, onderhoudsbestuur-der van Synag-suiwelboerdery, sê die tegnologie in Kubota-trekkers is “asemrowend”

Voer moet vir al die beeste gemaak word en ’n trekker wat vir Synag wil werk moet homself gereed maak vir grondbewerking, plant-, strooi-, sny-, baal-, sleep- en mengwerk. Kubota het onlangs vir die diens aangetree en die koeie en hulle base glimlag van oor tot oor oor hierdie sinvolle toevoeging.
