Kubota has introduced numerous new products this year, but perhaps the most surprising is the introduction of Kubota’s Hay Tool Implements. Kubota now offers disc mowers, tedders, and rakes to their already impressive line of agriculture equipment. The disc mowers offer effective and reliable performance as well as easy operation for non-stop mowing productivity. Kubota tedders and rakes are the perfect combination to help speed up the drying process and ensure clean raking performance.
DISC MOWERS – Kubota is proud to introduce an extensive new range of side mounted disc mowers, specifically developed for the North American market. The DM-series side mounted disc mowers offer a working width ranging from 5’6” up to 10’5”. The counter-rotating three blades per disc Kubota mowers are constantly cutting and offer no compromises in performance. This means a third less load per blade; an even load on the drive; and smoother power usage. The result is neat, clean stubble.
Being prepared when mowing season takes place is essential. The new range of Kubota mowers is designed to offer maximum productivity.
The Kubota DM2000 models are lightweight, simple mowers with a compact, but durable design for maximum output at a competitive price. They are offered in working widths of 9’2” and 10’5”. Featuring the Kubota cutterbar with triangular discs, continuous and excellent cutting performance, especially in difficult crop conditions, is ensured.
The mowers are equipped with a powerful and flexible spring loaded V-Belt drive. As the belt loosens, the spring pushes the drive wheel outwards, automatically tensioning the belt. The DM2000 series is fitted with the Kubota Non-Stop BreakAway system to protect the cutterbar. The integrated BreakAway system is designed to protect the cutterbar from foreign obstacles. Upon striking an obstacle in the field the mowing unit swings backwards and up. This provides maximum protection of the cutterbar. What this means to the operator is effortless continuous protection for efficient cutting.
The 2000 series is just as easy to operate as the small 1000 series disc mowers. Adjustable suspension springs are easily set, to provide the ground pressure required. Once the machines have been set correctly, all the operations can be done from inside the tractor. No use of the three point hitch is needed when lifting on headlands or going into transport position.
Having added hay tools to the line-up means that Kubota is expanding its footprint in the agricultural market. Great Plains salesman, Brent Elliott, commented on the new products.
“It is nice to see Kubota is making a quality effort in completing the line of farm and forage equipment. The disc mowers especially will be a great added bonus for our Kubota customers. The name Kubota is synonymous with quality and I expect nothing less with their hay tools,” said Elliott.
RAKES – Kubota is also offering it’s first pull-type rotary rake with a working width of 13’9” (4.2m). The Kubota RA1042T is fitted with 11 tangential tine arms and 4 double tines per arm. The high tine frequency ensures clean raking performance, even at reduced rpm and high travel speed.
Infinitely variable cam track adjustment allows fine tuning to obtain optimum raking and swath formation according to crop conditions.
The new Kubota RA1042T single rotary rake is designed for low power requirements, while still delivering considerable working width of 13’9”. Offering a pull-type design and linkage mounted drawbar, the Kubota RA1042T can be easily operated by low horsepower tractors.
TEDDERS – The new Kubota TE4052T is designed to optimize performance for producing dry hay. The four rotors, in combination with a wide overlap, ensure complete pick up of the hay and equal distribution over the entire working width. The Kubota TE4052T rotors are driven by a low maintenance gearbox with only one grease point. The bearings from the pinion and crown wheel ensure maximum longevity of the driveline. The low weight of 904 lbs is ideal for applications with small tractors, or on hilly terrain.
series has five tough and reliable models to choose from. The DM1017, DM1022, DM1024, DM2028, and the DM2032 cutting widths range from 5’6” to 10’5”.
The new Kubota DM1000 series cutters feature a new heavy-duty Kubota cutterbar, which is designed for low maintenance and quiet operation. The fully welded cutter with overlapping C-channels has a rigid and sturdy construction, ensuring a very high level of durability.
The Kubota cutterbar has a high oil capacity which ensures a low working temperature. The long curved gear wheels run smoothly in oil and provide optimal power transmission with little slack. Kubota disc mowers also feature a spring loaded break away. When an obstacle is encountered, the mower swings backwards to protect the cutterbar. By reversing, the mower is reset into working position.
