Kubota has announced its new M6002 series of tractors. The first unit was presented at FIMA 2020, the International Fair of Agricultural Machinery that takes place in Zaragoza, Spain, in February. The new tractor provides a strong solution to the needs of dairy livestock and mixed farms. This new M6002 series will offer three models: M6122, M6132 and M6142. The technology in the new M6002 series addresses both the increasing focus on sustainability and the needs of modern farmers.
The M6002 series is equipped with a four-cylinder 6108 Stage V engine, boosting both efficiency and reliability. It offers three horsepower levels with 121hp, 131hp and 141hp with an additional 20hp power boost for transport operations. The engine has an extended cleaning interval of the DPF from 3000 to 6000 hours to improve maintenance performance. In addition, it comes with a big 230-litre fuel tank, useful for long working days.
The transmission is completely new. It features an eight-speed powershift transmission with shifting progressive adjustment designed for high-speed and heavy towing capacity. These powershift models include the new Xpress restart function that controls the master clutch directly via brake pedal activation. The driver can stop the tractor without using the clutch pedal.
The large cab of this tractor range stands out for its striking new interior and exterior. It features a new multifunction lever arm rest with shuttle, engine memory, linkage control and auto-shifting control. Its ergonomic side console for all main lever operation is located on the right side of the driver’s seat and on the same radius point of the arm rest for maximum driver comfort. The wide sunroof offers optimal visibility, especially useful for front loader applications. It features 10 standard full LED working lights and six optional LED additional working lights for a 360° angle coverage. Finally, the cab is equipped with a Premium Grammar seat and a mechanical cab suspension, for the highest levels of comfort.
The new heavy duty rear and front axle allows for high-speed travel with increased payload capacity and heavy front loader application. The Kubota Bi-speed system included as standard provides an improved 4.5m turning radius, making the M6002 ideal in tight working applications.
Moreover the M6002 series offers additional performance, thanks to its hydraulic power steering system with CCLS pump of 115l/min which improves tractor reactivity.
The M6002 series has a 7000kg lifting capacity and 115l/min flow rate to manage all implements with maximum productivity and efficiency.
Other key features include:
- Well known 7in Isobus K-Monitor as an option.
- Autosteer as an option for increased productivity.
- Pto Speed 540/540E/1000/1000E as standard.
- Auto-modulated control activation for a soft and easy start.
- Adjustable smoothness activation with the K 7in monitor.
- Pto switch activation on rear fender or directly on the armrest.
- Overdrive system to ensure low noise and fuel consumption at 40kph at 1640rpm.
- Autoshifting mode.
- Large offer of front loader with five models for Utility segment up to Premium segment.
