Kubota introduces new utility tractor model

Kubota introduces new utility tractor model
The new MX5800 utility tractor from Kubota offers more power and plenty of creature comforts.

Kubota has announced its latest model in the MX-Series utility ag tractor line with the MX5800, a four-wheel-drive HST model delivering 61.4 gross horsepower. The MX5800 meets Tier 4 Final emissions standards and has increased engine power, and ergonomic features for operator comfort.

More power

The Kubota diesel engine in the new MX5800 provides a smooth transfer of power, low noise and quick starts. A Common Rail System (CRS) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) deliver cleaner emissions that comply with EPA Tier 4 Final emission regulations, and electronic common rail direct fuel injection maximizes fuel economy. The MX5800 features hydraulic servo HST systems that increase pedal responsiveness and shifting ease regardless of load size, reducing vibration and fatigue to improve tractor performance and operator comfort.

Smooth handling and maneuverability on the new model make traveling between jobs easier. The MX5800 comes 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. The flat deck enables safe and easy mounting and dismounting, with 30 inches of space between fenders. And 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.

The slanted hood of the MX5800 increases the operator’s field of view and is made of steel. With hydraulic dampers for easier access, the fully-opening hood makes routine maintenance checks efficient.

Front loader and backhoe

Kubota’s LA1065 front loader and BH92 backhoe were designed to ensure precise operation and improved productivity for the MX-Series. The LA1065 front loader has a maximum lift height at pivot pin of 111.2 inches, and lift capacity at pivot pin of 2,275 pounds. The series valve provides dual function ability for simultaneous operation of the lift and bucket circuit. The regenerative dump circuit provides fast bucket dump times. A two-lever quick coupler is now standard equipment for easy attaching and detaching of implements such as buckets and bale spears. Hydraulic tubes are enclosed within the rounded boom for protection and a clean look.

The BH92 backhoe delivers more power and greater capacity with 9.1 feet of digging depth. Attaching and working with large implements is simplified with the powerful Category I and II 3-point hitch, as well as the telescoping link ends and stabilizers that come standard on the MX5800.
