Kubota New Zealand product specialist Shaun Monteith says Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) tractors make up 30% of all tractors in their horsepower category in New Zealand. 

 

He says the release of the M5-1 ROPS models in Standard and Narrow configuration will give Kiwi farmers more horsepower choices, more versatility and a wide array of options.

“We’re excited to bring the M5-1 ROPS model to New Zealand. Its simplicity allows for easy movement and low height increases its practicality, while also allowing the operator to stay in contact with other workers around the tractor while remaining seated,” Monteith said.

 “With redesigned engine technology to give maximum horsepower at a lower engine speed of 2400rpm, the M5-1 ROPS also means greater fuel efficiency and will ensure it gets the operator through a long day of work.”

The new M5-1 ROPS line-up, including the M5091, M5111 Standard and the M5091 and M5101 Narrow, fits between the M40 Series ROPS and Cabin and the M5-1 Cabin models. Like the cabin models, the ROPS models feature the Kubota V3800 CR Tier 4i, four-cylinder engines of 92 or 103hp, 3.8 litre displacement, turbocharging, common rail and a particulate filter.

 The M5-1 Standard ROPS transmissions have been kept simple with 18 gears while still delivering the operator plenty of choice.

In the Standard models, six synchronised gears and three ranges team up with a smooth power shuttle to cover speeds from slow creep tillage and PTO to fast transport work. The transmission of the M5-1 Narrow feature dual speed splitters to offer 36 speeds for a multitude of applications in orchards and vineyards. The Kubota X46 front loader is designed to suit the M5-1 Standard ROPS models, with a specific hydraulic kit to suit the open workstation layout.

The M51 Standard ROPS are available now, while the M5-1 Narrow models will be arriving for delivery from January 2021.
