Kubota says it has designed its new LX20 Series compact tractors to deliver both comfort and performance.
At the National Farm Machinery Show at Louisville, Kentucky, earlier this month, the company rolled out the new LX3520 and LX4020 — the first opportunity for farmers to get a close-up look at the tractors.
RealAgriculture’s Bernard Tobin caught up with Kubota LX Series product manager Beau Woodbury at the annual machinery showcase. In this video report, Woodbury says the 35- and 40-hp configurations can handle greater variety of performance-matched implements. He adds that the tractors were built with the operator in mind, delivering an updated cabin area, new grips and easier-to-maneuver controls.
The LX20s feature a redesigned transmission aimed at significantly reducing hydrostatic (HST) noise for the operator, while an auto throttle helps the tractor to drive with ease. The new tractors features a wider front axle as well as a performance matched front loader that further improves their ease of operation and maneuverability.
The LX20 Series comes with a dual engine memory switch, allowing the operator to preset their preferred RPMs and have the engine match that speed at the push of a button. New mower decks are also available for both models, with integrated wash port attachments to make cleaning under the deck easier.
