Kubota breaks 100 PTO hp range

Kubota Tractor Corporation (KTC) has proven itself as a leader in the under-100 horsepower (hp) tractor market. Building on that tradition, Kubota introduces the M105X and now enters the 100-plus PTO horsepower class with the all-new M125X.

Displaying high performance with ease is what these tractors do best.

The M125X is equipped with a five-cylinder 125 net hp diesel engine with a Direct Injection System that produces 103 PTO hp.

The all-new M105X with 90 PTO hp has a four-cylinder 105 net hp diesel engine with a Center Direct-Injection System that is turbocharged and intercooled. Both tractor engines are engineered to generate vigorous pulling power.

The innovative turbochargers use Kubota's advanced Waste-Gate System, allowing the M105X and M125X to generate high torque even at low rpm. They also meet strict EPA Tier II emissions standards.

Maximum performance is achieved when operating the Kubota M105X or M125X because both models are equipped with the Intelli-Shift transmission. This eight-speed, dual-range power shift with Auto-Mode produces superior results. The Auto-Mode feature is so intelligent it senses when the load or terrain changes, to automatically shift the M105X/M125X within a range of four gears.

The 16F/16R transmission is operated by a single lever that controls the powershift and the range shift. There is an optional cassette-type, creep-speed kit, bringing the total speeds to 24F/24R.

Kubota's highly engineered transmission also is easy to operate by a touch of a button. Upshifts and downshifts are controlled by a microprocessor that enables smooth powershifting. This feature allows for less changing of the gears during operation, providing the operator with fatigue-free operation.

The M Series is equipped with many features that allow the operator to maneuver the tractor with ease. Kubota's Bi-Speed Turn is an example of this. Once the front wheels exceed a turning angle of 35 degrees, the front wheels will turn at a rate of speed nearly twice that of the rear wheels. This results in a smoother, tighter turn allowing the operator to maneuver the tractor in and out of rows precisely.

The M105X/M125X also are equipped with Kubota's exclusive bevel-gear front axle that provides constant power to the front wheels at all steering angles. Achieving a tight turning radius just became easier with these advanced technological features.

Electro-hydraulic differential locks are standard on the M105X and M125X. If the tractor is deep into mud, simply engage the electro-hydraulic differential locks on both front and rear wheels to achieve positive traction.

Front loader operation is easy with a single-lever joystick. Mechanical self-leveling linkage maintains the bucket level automatically and a heavy-duty hydraulic system insures faster bucket operation.

Attaching and detaching the front loader is user friendly with the use of the boom stands and two mounting pins. There are no tools required. The operator can quickly attach and detach a variety of skid steer-type attachments including pallet forks and bale spear.

Kubota's cab has been redesigned to provide the operator with an ergonomically smart control console. All operating controls and switches are within easy reach, on the operator's right-hand side. A new, digital LCD panel informs the operator of precise travel speed and PTO rpm.

Additionally, the exhaust pipe is on the cab's right side corner-post, for an unobstructed field of view. The operator will ride in comfort with the deluxe air-ride seat, with automatic weight and height adjustment and seat swivel. The cab provides year-round operator comfort in any condition with the powerful air conditioner and heating system.
