Mid-Size Tractor Line Expands

Mid-Size Tractor Line Expands
Kubota adds the MX5800 to its MX Series utility line.

The MX Series utility tractor line gets a new family member with the MX5800. The four-wheel drive HST model delivers 61.4 engine horsepower and the engine offers environmentally friendly performance with its final Tier 4 design.

The new machine is already being delivered to dealers and will be the largest crossover hydrostatic tractor on the market, according to the company. Paul Williams, senior product manager, Kubota, adds: "In addition to its strength, the MX5800 has plenty of comfort features, like a wide comfortable seat, a wide deck with ample leg room and the digital LCD dash panel to make operations a breeze."

The Kubota diesel engine in the new MX5800 uses a common rail system and a diesel particulate filter to deliver cleaner emissions that comply with the tighter Final Tier 4 standard. And the electronic common rail direct fuel injection system maximizes fuel economy. The machine also features hydraulic servo HST systems that "increase pedal responsiveness and shifting easy regardless of load size, reducing vibration and fatigue to improve tractor performance and operator comfort," the company reports.

The MX5800 comes equipped with easy-turn hydrostatic power steering, and a touch-and-turn electric PTO switch is positioned to the right side of the console for convenient operation with a push and turn start.

The suspension seat on the MX5800 helps reduce operator fatigue after a long day’s work. The flat deck enables safe and easy mounting and dismounting, with 30 inches of space between fenders, giving the operator more room to work in comfort. In addition, the easy-to-operate hanging pedals optimize leg room. Additional comfort features include a convenient cup holder, behind-the-seat toolbox, and newly designed LCD dash panel with large, easy-to-read gauges. The MX5800 also features a larger fuel tank with 13.5-gallon capacity for longer, more productive operation, with fewer stops to fill up.

The machine also has a one-piece slanted hood for better operator visibility, and it's made of steel for added strength. Hydraulic dampers on the fully opening hood make routine maintenance easier too.
