Compact & Narrow

Specifically engineered to work in vineyards.


Kubota has engineered these models specifically for those who work in vineyards, orchards or anywhere else that might require a narrow and compact tractor with M-Series power.


With an overall width of just 1520mm with standard tires, you can work almost anywhere. To further ensure that these machines go where you want them, we’ve also rounded the standard fenders, placed the ROPS in the middle of the tractor, included standard foldable hazard lights and made certain that the operating levers are positioned so as not to interfere with low

Hydraulic Shuttle Shift

The steering column-mounted hydraulic shuttle shift makes forward and reverse maneuvers smooth and quick. Clutch-less operation helps boost productivity, especially when operating in narrow orchard’s where the frequent forward and reverse movements are necessary. An improved inching feature gives the same feel as a half-clutch operation for easier attachments of implements.

Bi-Speed Turn

Kubota’s exclusive Bi-Speed Turn feature rotates the front wheels at a rate of speed nearly twice that of the rear wheels whenever the front wheels exceed a turning angle of about 30 degrees. The result is a smoother, tighter turn, allowing you to turn into an adjacent crop row on your first attempt. This feature also helps to significantly reduce surface damage.
