GRAPEVINE, Texas - Kubota Tractor Corporation announced the launch of the new L60LE Series. With the success of the launch of the L3560HSTC-LE last year, three new models have been added to complete the new L60LE series, which now offers a total of four models – two cab models and two ROPS models. Ranging from 37 to 42 gross horsepower, the new series offers an array of quality and comfort features. The new L60LE compact tractors will be available starting November 2020.
“Last year, Kubota launched a single unit, the L3560HSTC-LE, based on the market-driven needs for an affordable, deluxe cab. Since then, we found that many of our customers were looking for tractors that would provide the level of quality, comfort and entry-level affordability the L3560HSTC-LE offered, but needed either a little bit more horsepower or in a ROPs version. It was with these market-driven needs that I am excited to introduce the completion of an entire L60LE Series, adding three more models with a variety of sizes and power options,” said Kelcey Richardson, Kubota product manager.
Kubota’s new L60LE Series is comprised of the L3560LE and the larger framed L4060LE, each with cab and ROPS models, offering a total of four models to choose from in the new series. They are built with a large chassis, all metal hood and fenders and equipped with a Kubota-built diesel engine. Kubota’s electronic HST Plus Transmission comes standard on all models and is designed to provide smooth, quiet operation and maximize productivity.
Other performance features include a heavy-duty three-point hitch with a lift capacity of 2,646 pounds (24” behind the pin) on the L3560LE and 2,760 pounds (24” behind the pin) on the L4060LE. Additionally, with available options for the LA555 or LA805 front loader, the L60LE Series has a loader lift capacity of up to 1,715 pounds (at pivot pin) and a front loader maximum lift height of up to 105 inches (at pivot pin). The BH77 and BH92 backhoes are performance-matched with the L60LE Series to deliver more power and greater capacity. And, thanks to the full-flat deck and a quick attach/detach mounting system, the backhoes deliver optimal legroom for maximum operator comfort. A mid-PTO option can also be used with a variety of performance-matched, front-mounted snow removal implements. Lastly, the L60LE Series can be equipped with a full line of performance-matched implements and attachments from Land Pride.
Kubota offers multiple standard features and options for customers throughout the L60LE Series lineup. The new Series includes premium features such as a larger chassis size, low engine noise, high performance HST Plus transmission, smooth loader operation and spacious operator platform. To further customize the tractor, Kubota offers a wide variety of tire tread types and sizes.
The new L60LE tractors boast a range of ergonomically designed comfort features and functions to reduce fatigue and maintain productivity. Standard features for both cab and ROPs models include a wide operator area and standard deluxe suspension seat with swivel feature, as well as standard tilt steering, electric PTO switch, full-flat deck with rubber floormat, wide step, cup holder, full open hood and ground level fuel tank fill.
All cab models come standard with the wide, deluxe Grand L cab with heater and A/C. Many optional features are available to outfit the tractor to meet exact customer needs. Optional accessories include an air-ride seat, ROPs canopies, front weights, rear hydraulic remote valves and more.
