The No. 1 Selling Compact Tractor Brand in the United States for More than a Decade
Kubota Tractor Corp. was founded in California in 1972, three years after the first Kubotas — the 12-hp L200s — came to America and filled a void in the U.S. marketplace for sub-compact tractors. Shortly thereafter, Kubota introduced all of its primary tractor lines — the BX, B, L and M Series — and according to EDA Data, Kubota has been the No. 1 selling brand of compact tractors in the United States for more than 11 years. Ranging from 17.5 to 62 hp, Kubota compact tractors are ideal for everything from estate maintenance chores to commercial landscaping and small farming.
In the last four years, Kubota’s L2501 compact tractor has blazed a trail to tractor ownership for first-time buyers. With 24.8 hp on a larger chassis, cleaner emissions and modern styling, the L2501 compact tractor has the performance and features to get the job done right, at an outstanding price. The model features deluxe styling with plenty of extras for a more spacious, ergonomic and comfortable ride. Beyond its affordability, the model sets itself apart from the competition with smooth operation and maneuverability, designed to deliver a higher level of performance, says Kubota.
No matter the season or weather conditions, the Standard L Series has a versatile range of implements to handle virtually any job — from the LA525 front loader and the BH77 backhoe to pallet forks, bale spears and rear snow blowers. Also, thanks to Land Pride, a Kubota-owned company, customers have access to many other Kubota performance-matched implements such as rear rotary cutters, rear rotary tillers, rear blades and much more. All of Kubota’s compact tractor lines — from the B Series to the Grand L60 Series — stand out with Kubota engineering, quality and durability, says the company. The Grand L60 Series offers the features and comforts of a deluxe tractor on a compact frame, providing high performance to commercial, residential and farm jobs.
Advice to Buyers
“I would say that the majority of our customers are small private property owners,” says Robert Cockroft, Kubota senior product manager, sub and compact tractors. “However, compact tractors can be found in all sorts of other applications ranging from rental yards to landscapers. Manufacturers offers a wide variety of models that fit everyone’s needs, regardless of their application.”
