50HP – 170HP
What you thought was impossible in a mid-size tractor is now …
Sales of Kubota M Series tractors ranging from 50 to 170 horsepower are on the rise. In fact, the company is reporting impressive sales growth within this market segment on a monthly and yearly basis.
According to Kubota Australia’s M series Product Manager, Lars Pasedag, the increasing popularity of Kubota M series is due to a number of factors. “As more farmers experience the reliability and performance of Kubota tractors, a large number of sales are made based on word of mouth recommendations. Combined with an ever increasing tractor range incorporating the latest in engine and transmission advancements, Kubota tractors are now high up on the shopping list. Also, Kubota dealers are eager to recommend and sell Kubota M series tractors because they are secure in the knowledge the tractors are pretty much bullet proof.” Lars said.
The extensive range of Kubota M series begins with the value for money 50 horsepower MX5100 and progressively works through a number of series and configurations culminating in the top of the range 170 horsepower M7171.
