Kubota Tractors Australia supplies Australia’s leading range of mid-sized tractors. Many of these tractors have been fitted with front end loaders from various sources. Now Kubota has released a new range of Kubota manufactured front end loaders specifically designed to suit this tractor range. These new loaders are manufactured by Kubota Industrial Equipment in their own manufacturing plant in Jefferson, Georgia USA and fully comply with all Australian front end loader requirements.
There are 5 new models of mechanical self levelling front end loaders all featuring quick detach loader assemblies. The convenient system saves time by letting the operator attach and detach the loader from the tractor. The mounting pins and hose couplings are within easy reach can be removed from the operator’s seat, without the need for any tools. Boom stays are mounted to the loader frame and easily engaged to ensure stability of the loader when detached from the tractor.
The new LA714 and LA854 loaders are ideally suited to Kubota’s Grand L series of tractors (35 – 52 horsepower). The Grand L series built in 4 outlet front end loader valve with its mudguard mounted single lever joystick is an ideal means of operating these loaders. There are also models to suit Kubota’s basic L series tractors. Loaders for the basic L series feature a joystick controlled valve fitted to the loader post and within easy reach of the operator.
The new LA514-B fits the 34 horsepower L3400 tractor, the LA714-B fits the 44 horsepower L4400 tractor and the LA854-B is designed for the 52 horsepower MX 5100 tractor. All of these loaders when fitted to the relevant model allow operators an excellent field of vision. The construction grade hydraulic cylinders are made to last. The high quality plating of the cylinder rods achieve superior rust protection and enhance sealing performance. For operator safety boom stops are stored on the loader frame for use when servicing the tractor. All of these loaders come standard with a front radiator guard.
To make the loaders as versatile as possible a skid steer type quick hitch is standard on all of these loaders. This hitch system allows operators to quickly attach or detach buckets or implements from the tractor. Loaders come fitted with standard type buckets. An electric operated third function kit is available and when fitted is ideal to operate the optional a 4:1 bucket available for all of these loaders. Other options available include pallet fork frames and bale spears. All of these options are also manufactured by Kubota to ensure correct fitting and efficient operation of the tractor Loader combination. A counterweight is offered as an option for all Kubota loaders and is recommended to ensure safe operation.
With the release of these new loaders, operators can take advantage of using a loader that perfectly matches the capability of their tractor.
