Like Kubota’s entire standard L Series line, the L2501 is powered by a Kubota diesel engine. Under 25 hp, this model complies with the latest EPA emissions regulations without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF). A gas-strut hood with opener assist provides easier maintenance, and a 10-gal fuel tank allows for more time on the job and less time refueling. The transmission delivers smooth operation with four main shift speeds in two ranges for high and low, for a total of eight forward and four reverse speeds.
