We have just built up the Kubota B1241 in our workshop, its the only tractor in our range that comes with the folding mid ROPS option. Perfect for nurseries, specalist fruit and vegetable growers and smallholders.
The ROPS is positioned in front of the operator platform, providing essential protection for fieldwork, but folding flush with the bonnet when working in a height-restricted situation. This reduces the overall height of the tractor to a maximum of 1.41m, ideal for accessing polytunnels, greenhouses or low buildings. It also avoids any interference with rear mounted implements, and folding is a simple matter of removing two pins at the base of the ROPS frame.
A number of other improvements have been made to the B1 series tractor, which is available with a choice of 18 and 24hp proven Kubota E-TVCS engines. The straightforward mechanical transmission offers three forward speeds in each of three ranges while highly effective power steering improves manoeuvrability in tight yards and sheds. Bevel gear four-wheel drive keeps productivity up in tough conditions, its design also enhancing ground clearance.
There’s no end to the tasks that can be accomplished with the Kubota B1 series, which has a category 1 rear linkage and optional mid-pto for a mower deck on the 18hp B1181 model. The LA213 front loader can also be specified for the B1181 to tackle materials handling jobs around the farm or nursery.
Operator comfort is ensured by a roomy platform with easy access when frequent climbing on and off a tractor is required. There’s a fully rubber covered deck, clear control layout with lever guides and handy cup holder.
This is also a tractor that’s a breeze to maintain – the bonnet lifts clear, side guards come away and the front grille comes out to give all-round access to the engine.
