TORRANCE, Calif.-- Kubota Tractor Corporation has introduced a new line of front-mount commercial diesel mowers. The F90 Series consists of three models: the F2690E, F2690 and the F3990, available now at Kubota dealerships nationwide. The F3990 is the top-of-the-line, four-wheel-drive model with the highest-ever horsepower among all Kubota front-mount mowers, featuring 39 hp at 2500 rpm.

“From golf courses to municipalities, whatever your grounds maintenance application, there’s a Kubota F90-Series mower that can do the job with more power, precision and efficiency than ever before,” said Christine Chapman, turf product manager for Kubota. “The F90-Series mowers are an excellent choice for large scale, year-round grounds maintenance because they are designed with the needs of professional users in mind. With a wide range of implement options for all seasons, the F90 Series allows operators to get more done in less time.”

Power, Precision and Expert Maneuverability
Kubota’s F90-Series offers multiple innovations for unparalleled comfort, power, traction and versatility with cleaner Tier IV emissions standards and enhanced fuel efficiency. At the core of the series is an efficient, clean performance Kubota diesel engine that delivers 25.5 hp to the F2690E and F2690, and 39 hp to the F3990. The F90-Series’ high torque rise ensures faster, smoother recovery under sudden loading, allowing the operator to power through tall or wet grass without slowing down.

Each F90-Series model has a single-speed pedal hydrostatic transmission allowing for quick response directional changes and varying speeds to keep the operator’s hands free for steering and implement control. Each model has a 16.1 gallon fuel tank to minimize fuel stops between jobs, and Auto-Assist four-wheel-drive that works in forward and reverse to ensure appropriate traction and prevent landscape damage. The Series’ PTO shaft drive offers a smooth and direct power transfer from the engine to the deck and other PTO-driven attachments. And, because there are no belts or pulleys, less overall maintenance is required.

Heavy Duty Commercial Deck Combines Performance and Versatility
The heavy duty commercial mower deck comes with an improved baffle to prevent cut grass from discharging to the front, and a larger discharge chute for better discharge performance. The side or rear discharge mower is available in 60” and 72” widths and both tilt up 90 degrees for easier cleaning and blade sharpening.

The F90-Series’ fabricated steel mower deck is stronger and more durable than conventional pressed steel decks and is designed to provide years of reliable cutting performance with minimal maintenance. The deck’s 6-inch deep design lets tall grass stand up so that it can be cut more efficiently, resulting in a faster cut and cleaner appearance.

A high lifting capacity gives the F90-Series the versatility to handle an array of implements, including a grass catcher, snow blower, rotary sweeper, debris blower, front blade, and the 100” flex mower deck. An easy-to-install one-piece cab enclosure is also available for winter applications.

Optimal Comfort and Easy Maintenance
With a tilt steering wheel and adjustable, deluxe high back seat, plus a large operator platform and ergonomically placed levers, operator comfort comes standard with any F-Series model. Designed for easy serviceability, the F90-Series offers simple maintenance with a quick-release engine cover and 90-degree tilt mower deck ensuring operators can get back to the job quickly.

One-Stop Manufacturer Warranty
Kubota’s F90-Series mowers are covered by a comprehensive two (2) year, unlimited hours, manufacturer warranty on both the mower and the engine. For more information on Kubota’s full line of commercial mowers, visit
