Kubota presents its new M7002 tractor, successor to the well-known M7001 model. The large-scale upland farming tractor, with up to 170 horsepower, has greatly improved features and is easier to use, with better customization options and manoeuvrability.
The main innovation in this M7002 model is the new 6-speed Powershift transmission, under load in 30/15 or 54/27 if equipped with creeper. Some of its specifications have also been improved, such as the increase in maximum permissible weight to 11,500 kg, offering a greater payload, together with efficient engine performance focused on increased power and lower fuel consumption. This all increases the productivity of the tractor, which can be driven at a speed of 50 km/h. The tyre size range has been increased, with the incorporation of 600/60R28 sizes for the front axle and 710/60R38 for the rear axle, minimizing compaction and maximizing traction.
Technology is another of the strengths of the new M7002 tractor thanks to improvements in the operation of the main joystick and the increased HMS header memory making work notably easier. Autosteer has been optimized, giving it a new “nudge” function, for example. Thanks to this, the driver can see the distance from the set route in centimetres, and several HMS settings can be created, up to a maximum of 20.
High levels of comfort inside and out
The Japanese manufacturer knows that working in comfort ensures high productivity, so the new Kubota M7002 adds suspension and low-noise options to the comfort features already recognized in its predecessor, the M7001, as well as other new elements. These include the Deluxe MSG95AL741 seat, for greater comfort during tough working days. Along these lines, it also includes LED working lights for better visibility and a higher quality finish inside the cabin. Finally, to complete the benefits of the new M7002, Kubota has increased the customization options based on the standard model. This means it is possible to fit electric rear-view mirrors and an internal light for greater visibility.
