In tough economic times, versatility is as important as price, which is why the Kubota M108S agricultural tractor is a firm favourite with farmers and contractors alike.
Part of the hugely popular Kubota M Series, the M108S has been designed to offer the agricultural sector power, performance, versatility and reliability – and all at an affordable price.
It offers exceptional pulling power and unparalleled levels of productivity which make it equally suited for use on livestock, dairy, mixed use or arable farms. Powered by Kubota’s 108hp new common rail engine, the M108S combines a 32 x 32 gearbox with hydraulic shuttle, swing shift and dual speed for smooth and progressive directional changes, as well as on demand 4WD to ensure exceptional traction and efficient braking.
The engine itself has been designed to reduce fuel consumption, which together with its high power to weight ratio means it is very economic to run. What’s more, with a 175 litre fuel tank, this tractor offers hour after hour of efficient working without the need to refuel.
Fuel efficiency is complemented by Kubota’s unique cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system, which reduces emissions by diverting exhaust gas through a cooler and returning it to the combustion chambers.
The M108S features hydraulic independent PTO with 4,000kg lift capacity and can be fitted with the Kubota LA1403 loader. This offers a host of features specifically aimed at the farming market such as hydraulic self levelling, third function hydraulic service, Euro eight quick hitch, single lever quick coupler and Kubota's shockless ride. And with a wide range of Kubota matched implements available, it is suitable for all manner of jobs.
The cab itself has been ergonomically designed to increase comfort and reduce operator fatigue. It is spacious with a well thought-out-layout; controls are conveniently located, the dash is easy to read and the air suspension seat is extremely comfortable. Air conditioning and a CD/Radio come as standard.
Routine maintenance is designed to take the minimum of time and effort thanks to the slanted bonnet which opens fully allowing quick and easy access to the engine. The sliding louvreless-type AC condenser and condenser net can also be removed easily for cleaning.
"The M108S has been designed with farmers in mind," said David Blackwood, sales and marketing manager at Kubota Tractor and Groundcare. We know that in this economic climate it’s important that farm machinery must be adaptable, so the M108S is highly versatile and can be used for a wide variety of tasks.
"It is also extremely easy to use, offers a comfortable ride and is fuel efficient, making it economical to run."
Like all of Kubota’s agricultural tractors, the M108S comes with a three year manufacturer's warranty as standard.
