<a href=”http://kubota.com/f/home/home.cfm” target=”_blank”>Kubota</a>&nbsp;is growing its mid-size tractor lineup with four new models that were released at the 2009&nbsp;<a href=”/blogs/blog.aspx?blogid=184&amp;tag=shows”>National Farm Machinery Show</a>&nbsp;in Louisville last week. The new releases include the M100X, M110X, M126X and M135X with 97.7, 107.5, 125, and 135 net horsepower engines respectively.&nbsp; The M135X is Kubota&rsquo;s most powerful M-Series tractor to date, with a 374 cubic inch, turbocharged direct injection four-cylinder diesel engine that boasts 118 PTO horsepower.</p>
<p>

</p>
<p>&ldquo;Increased horsepower and enhanced design elements on these M-Series deluxe mid-size tractors will allow operators to be more efficient during long days in the field,&rdquo; says Paul Williams, Kubota product manager. &ldquo;Leading the pack is the new M135X, a deluxe, high performance tractor with advance features at an affordable price.&rdquo;</p>
<p>

</p>
<p>Other standard features include a dual-range eight powershift speed transmission (16 total speeds forward and reverse) wide-front tread that provides an overall 70-74 inch tread spacing, making straddling wide windrows in baler applications easier. &nbsp;Float links have been added to the three-point hitch, which provide lateral floatation for the use of wide implements. To provide for a smooth, comfortable ride on the M135X, especially when equipped with a loader, Kubota offers optional front axle hydraulic suspension with a toggle switch to turn the system on-and-off. These features, combined with the standard radial tires on each M-Series model, provide excellent traction and a quiet ride.</p>
<p>

</p>
<p>To further enhance the new M-Series designs, Kubota is also introducing two new loaders: the LA1953 and the LA2253.&nbsp; Each loader is configured with Kubota&rsquo;s current quick coupler system or, new to these models, is the ISO Euro-coupler system.&nbsp; The LA1953 is performance matched to the M100X and the M110X and has a lifting capacity of 4299 pounds, while the LA2253 is matched to the M126X and the M135X and has a lifting capacity of 4934 pounds.</p>
<p>If you are in the market for a chore boy in the 100 plus horsepower range, check these new utility tractors out at a Kubota dealer near you.</p>
