New Stage V versions of Kubota’s L1 and L2 series now available

Kubota has launched two new ranges of compact tractors, building on the success achieved with previous L1 and L2 series. Both new ranges are now equipped with Kubota’s Stage V engines, and the exterior and interior designs have been refreshed giving a stylish new look.

The new Kubota L1 series compact tractors have been designed to be highly durable, easy to operate and simple to maintain.

There is a choice of three-range HST hydrostatic transmission or a synchronised manual gearbox featuring eight forward and eight reverse gears. The L1 tractors are powered by four-cylinder 45hp, 51hp and 55hp Kubota Stage V diesel engines, which make them exceptionally clean-running.

One of the key advantages of Kubota compact tractors is the spacious, comfortable design of their platform, and the L1 series is no exception with a folding rear ROPS frame and a height-adjustable steering wheel. The L1 series also features generous rear lifting capacity, with a maximum lift of 1750kg.

Compact tractors in the L2 series feature an improved combination of comfort and efficiency, which makes them ideal for demanding professionals.

The L2 range allows users to choose between three different engine outputs from 45-61hp, spacious and well-equipped cabin or ROPS versions, 16F+16R mechanical or three-range hydrostatic transmission. Rear linkage lift capacity is 1750kg.

Another key aspect of this latest L2 range is its user-focused design, and an example of that is the one-piece engine cowling that can be fully opened, giving operators effortless access to all important service points and daily checks, in the engine compartment.

In addition, the front axle with bevel gear drive and the integrated power steering deliver effortlessly agile manoeuvrability, suiting use in tight spaces.

Both L1 and L2 tractor ranges can be specified with Kubota front-end loaders offering even more versatility and expanding the range of tasks that can be performed.

Prices for the L1 models start at £15,549 for the L1382
