Kubota Responds to Consumer Demand: Introduces New, Affordable, Special ...
“We asked customers what they needed in a mid-sized utility tractor and
they told us: affordability, power and ease of operation, among other
features that are typically found on more premium machines,” said Tyler
Pittson, product manager, ag tractors for Kubota. “As a direct response
to customer feedback, we are excited to introduce the M5660SU as part of
our 2015 lineup. Not only are we proud to introduce a tractor that is
built from the input of our customers, but one that is backed by
Kubota’s unparalleled level of engineering.”
The Next Level of Powerful and Clean
The M5660SU is available in two models: the two-wheel-drive M5660SUH and
the four-wheel-drive M5660SUHD. Both models are equipped with a 56 net
horsepower direct fuel injection engine. The M5660SU includes a common
rail system (CRS) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) as standard
equipment that work together to ensure clean operation and total
compliance with the EPA Tier 4 final emission regulations.
Featuring a Fully Synchronized Transmission and Hydraulic Shuttle
The M5660SU offers easy operation features typically reserved for
premium tractors, including a new transmission and hydraulic shuttle.
The transmission on the M5660SU provides eight forward and eight reverse
speeds to let operators choose the right speed for the job. New to this
class of tractor is a hydraulic shuttle that provides smooth-shifting
between forward and reverse by use of a single lever, eliminating the
need to engage the clutch to change directions. The left-hand hydraulic
shuttle lever boosts productivity in any job that requires repetitive
forward and reverse movements, such as front loader work.
The Power to Achieve Optimal Productivity
In addition to power features, consumers told Kubota that they wanted to
increase productivity through fuel economy and minimizing downtime.
Kubota’s M5660SU is available with an optional economy PTO that reduces
operating noise and fuel consumption. The M5660SU is also equipped with
a constant RPM management system that maintains a constant RPM rate
regardless of terrain as well as a constant travel speed and PTO RPM
rate when using PTO-driven implement, improving work accuracy and fuel
economy. In addition, the M5660SU offers a large 17.7 gallon capacity
fuel tank, reducing downtime between refueling.
