With the success of the launch of the L3560HSTC-LE last year, three new models have been added to complete the new L60LE series, which now offers a total of four models – two cab models and two ROPS models. Ranging from 37 to 42 gross horsepower, the new Series offers an array of deluxe quality and comfort features at an affordable price point. The new L60LE compact tractors will be available starting November 2020.
“Last year, Kubota launched a single unit, the L3560HSTC-LE, based on the market-driven needs for an affordable, deluxe cab. Since then, we found that many of our customers were looking for tractors that would provide the level of quality, comfort and entry-level affordability the L3560HSTC-LE offered, but needed either a little bit more horsepower or in a ROPs version. It was with these market-driven needs that I am excited to introduce the completion of an entire L60LE Series, adding three more models with a variety of sizes and power options,” said Kelcey Richardson, Kubota product manager. “The L60LE Series will exceed expectations in terms of providing so many premium features found on our Grand L60 series which maximize both performance and comfort, but without breaking the bank. The L60LE series is designed to provide maximum performance for every operator, no matter the experience level, in a wide variety of applications. Perfect for property maintenance, hobby farms, equestrian facilities or landscaping, to name a few, this new series really is a steal for anyone who wants the best bang for their buck in terms of both premium features and affordability.”
Kubota-Engineered Power and Performance
Kubota’s new L60LE Series is comprised of the L3560LE and the larger framed L4060LE, each with cab and ROPS models, offering a total of four models to chose from in the new series. Built with a heavy-duty large chassis, all metal hood and fenders and equipped with a Kubota-built diesel engine, this series provides the quality and durability Kubota is known for. Kubota’s industry leading electronic HST Plus Transmission comes standard on all models and is designed to provide smooth, quiet operation and maximize productivity and ease of use.
With many features, like Stall Guard and Auto Throttle Advance, the HST Plus transmission allows any operator, no matter the experience level, feel and look like a professional. Other performance features include a heavy-duty three-point hitch with a lift capacity of 2,646 pounds (24” behind the pin) on the L3560LE and 2,760 pounds (24” behind the pin) on the L4060LE. Additionally, with available options for the LA555 or LA805 front loader, the L60LE Series 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 BH77 and BH92 backhoes are performance-matched with the L60LE Series to deliver more power and greater capacity. And, thanks to the full-flat deck and a quick attach/detach mounting system, the backhoes deliver optimal legroom for maximum operator comfort. A mid-PTO option can also be used with a variety of performance-matched, front-mounted snow removal implements. Lastly, the L60LE Series can be equipped with a full line of performance-matched implements and attachments from Land Pride.
Premium Quality at an Affordable Price
Kubota offers multiple deluxe standard features and options for customers throughout the L60LE Series lineup. The new Series includes premium features such as a larger chassis size, low engine noise, high performance HST Plus transmission, smooth loader operation and spacious operator platform, all at an unexpected affordable price. To further customize the tractor, Kubota offers a wide variety of tire tread types and sizes. For example, agricultural tires are available for heavy-duty field work requiring maximum traction; turf tires are designed for mowing with minimal ground disruption; and, industrial tires are designed for loader work requiring a more everyday-use style tread.
Comfort Features and Options Galore
The new L60LE tractors boast a wide range of ergonomically designed comfort features and functions to reduce fatigue and maintain productivity. Standard features for both cab and ROPs models include a wide, spacious operator area and standard deluxe suspension seat with swivel feature, as well as standard tilt steering, electric PTO switch, full-flat deck with rubber floormat, wide step, cup holder, full open hood and ground level fuel tank fill.
All cab models come standard with the wide, deluxe Grand L cab with heater and A/C. Many optional features are available to outfit the tractor to meet exact customer needs. Optional accessories include an air-ride seat, ROPs canopies, front weights, rear hydraulic remote valves, and many more to choose from based on your needs.
