Kubota says its new L3560 Limited Edition tractor features a deluxe factory-installed cab on a compact tractor while being set at an affordable price point.
The L3560LE has a 37-horsepower diesel engine and an electronic HST Plus Transmission for power. It is designed to meet the needs of rural residential and light commercial applications. Optional turf tires are also available for turf management as well.
“The introduction of the new Kubota L3560LE is completely market-driven,” says Kelcey Cockrell, Kubota assistant product manager. “We heard from rural residential and light commercial tractor owners that they need a cab to protect themselves from the elements, inclement weather or for certain applications. Of course, adding a cab to a tractor tends to add to the price tag, but the L3560LE is engineered with a lot of deluxe cab comfort features at an entry-level price point.”
The cab is wide and features a deluxe suspension seat, tilt steering and swivel seat adjustments. An air ride seat is optional. The machine has a three-point hitch with a lift capacity of 3,748 pounds at the lower link ends.
Customers have the choice between either the LA555 or LA805 front loader. Both come standard with a two-lever quick coupler for universal attachments. The LA805 has an optional one-lever hydraulic quick coupler for easier removal of the loader.
The L3560LE has a loader lift capacity of up to 1,715 pounds at pivot pin and a front loader maximum lift height of up to 105 inches at pivot pin. The new tractor is available now at authorized Kubota dealers nationwide.
