The Kubota Grand L60 Series is equipped with highly advanced, yet user-friendly, computer controls. Additionally, the eye-catching series offers enhanced style and operator comfort with a deluxe Grand Cab ™ and a sharply styled, one-piece hood. Clean engine emissions, favorable fuel economy and uncompromising power further define the Grand L60 models as a best-in-class tractor series.

“The Kubota Grand L60 Series raises the standard of tractor styling and luxury, comfortable operation, and ease of use,” said Paul Williams, senior product manager for Kubota. “With its simple, intuitive operation, this technologically advanced, great-looking, hard-working series is sure to be highly sought-after from coast to coast.”

The New Grand Cab™

The interior of the Kubota Grand L60 cab model offers spaciousness and deluxe features, including a wider cab with 20 percent more space than previous models, extensive glass windows to minimize blind spots, and increased legroom and headroom. Also, wider opening doors allow for easy entry and exit, and an ergonomically designed suspension seat, abundant storage compartments, and an air conditioner/heater make operation comfortable and more productive than ever.

The Grand L60 Series features reduced noise and vibration levels, as well as an integrated loader valve and control lever, helping improve operations and reduce operator fatigue. Additional cab features include a tilt steering wheel, power steering, an electric PTO switch and easy access to the 12 volt power supply.

Intuitive Operation and a “Kubota Original” Throttle-Up Feature

Kubota Grand L60 Series tractor operation is made easier with the new IntelliPanel™ electronic dash. Incorporating highly intuitive computer controls, the large-screen digital panel combines an analog tachometer, temperature gauge, fuel gauge and standard indicators to keep operators informed on the tractor’s operating status and maintenance needs. In addition, cruise control and the new combination headlights/indicator lights lever allow for simple, car-like operation.

On L60 HST Plus models, a “Kubota original” feature has been added for superior power. The Kubota Throttle-Up switch, located on the loader lever, gives operators more engine RPM power with the push of a button, allowing operators to complete loader jobs quickly and easily. Throttle up functionality allows the operator to set their preferred RPM speed in the IntellipanelTM. Engine speeds are raised on demand and only when necessary, resulting in reduced noise and improved fuel efficiency.

“Right now, Kubota is the only tractor line to feature the Throttle-Up Switch,” Williams said. “It further demonstrates that Kubota excels at engineering deluxe, high performance tractors.”

Cleaner Emissions and Outstanding Fuel Economy

Get all the power while using less fuel with the Kubota Grand L60 Series, which comes equipped with clean-emission Common Rail direct injection engines. In compliance with Tier IV emission regulation, the Kubota Grand L60 engines deliver greater fuel savings and lower emissions while maintaining a high level of power and torque. Three state-of-the-art transmissions are available: Hydrostatic Transmission (HST) Plus, Glide Shift Transmission (GST) or Fully Synchronized Main and Shuffle Transmission (FST).

“The Kubota Grand L60 Series is truly the total package,” Williams said. “With a choice of five clean-emission engines and three advanced transmissions, the series offers a higher level of performance while going easy on the environment and providing exceptional value for the dollar.”
