Kubota plans to bring its new LX20 Series tractors, featuring 35- and 40-hp engines, to Canadian dealer lots in December.
The company showed off the compact tractors at Canada’s Outdoor Farm Show at Woodstock, Ont., last month.
Kubota compact utility tractor product manager Chris Isaac says a key feature that catches farmers’s attention is the redesigned transmission, which significantly reduces hydrostatic (HST) noise for the operator. The transmission also delivers an auto throttle that makes the tractor easier to drive.
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. There’s also an updated loader to match the power and ability of the higher horsepower engine.
Inside the cab, farmers will see a wider floorboard for easier and more comfortable entry, new grips, upgraded seats and easier-to-maneuver controls.
