B-Series growth for Kubota

  • 06-Feb-2009 11:40 EST

Fitted with a midmounted mowing deck, Kubota's B3200 is suitable for maintaining large lawns.

Kubota has introduced four new tractors to its B-Series, the B2320, B2620, B2920, and B3200. Targeted toward larger ground care, landscaping, and light construction, the B-Series offers a variety of options to suit changing demands.

“The B-Series tractors have always been one of our most popular lines because they are small enough to be extremely versatile yet powerful enough to conquer larger landscaping and even light construction jobs,” said Jeremy Coltin, Product Manager, Kubota.

The B2320, B2620, and B2920 share the same engine, a three-cylinder Kubota diesel, ranging from 18 to 21 PTO hp (13 to 16 kW), depending on the model. These three models are also matched with specific attachments, while the B3200 can handle slightly larger equipment. The B3200 has a four-cylinder diesel, with 23 PTO hp (17 kW). All models use Kubota’s E-TVCS, a three-vortex combustion system, which is claimed to improve power and torque while lowering noise and emissions. The hydrostatic transmission with three ratios gives maximum speeds of between 11 to 12 mph (18 to 19 km/h).

Mowing and ground care take time and effort, and new B-Series tractors all have a high-back seat and large running boards so that operators stay as comfortable as possible. Safety features include a foldable rollover protector.

The B-Series can handle front loaders, backhoes, midmounted mowers, rotary cutters, box blades, and finishing mowers. At the rear, the backhoe attachments are assisted by the optional reversible seat, which swivels for rear use. Cruise control and power steering are also available.
