Torrance, California -- Unveiled at Kubota Tractor Corporation's Dealer Meeting last week in Nashville, Tenn., the all-new L2501 compact tractor blazes a trail to tractor ownership for first-time buyers. With 24.8 horsepower on a larger chassis, cleaner emissions and modern styling, the L2501 compact tractor has the performance and features to get the job done right, at an outstanding price.
The introduction of the new L2501 is one of the many products unveiled across Kubota's turf, agriculture and construction segments - culminating in one of the largest product offerings in the company's 42-year history in the U.S.
"Our new L2501 makes the dream of tractor ownership a reality for customers looking for that top-quality, high-performance machine," said Stephen Barcuch, Kubota product marketing director, agriculture equipment. "With proven design, ample horsepower and operator comfort with a larger chassis, the L2501 is a classic tractor choice at an ideal price point for the first-time owner."
The L2501 is an all-new addition to Kubota's popular L-Series and features deluxe styling with plenty of extras for a more spacious, ergonomic and comfortable ride. Beyond its affordability, the model sets itself apart from the competition with smooth operation and outstanding maneuverability, designed to deliver a higher level of performance. With all the features needed to tackle a wide range of jobs, combined with the quality reputation of the Kubota brand, the new L2501 stands to become a favorite of first-time tractor owners everywhere.
Reliable Kubota Diesel Engines Under the Hood
Like Kubota's entire Standard L-Series line, the new L2501 is powered by a Kubota diesel engine. Under 25 horsepower, this new model complies with the latest EPA emissions regulations without the need for a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). A gas-strut hood with opener assist provides easier maintenance, and a 10 gallon fuel tank allows for more time on the job, and less time refueling.
The transmission delivers smooth operation with four main-shift speeds in two ranges for high and low, for a total of eight forward and four reverse speeds. The gear drive transmission models come in 2WD or 4WD, and the optional HST transmission offers simple forward and reverse change and 3-range shifting for optimal operating efficiency. Optional cruise control is also available on HST models.
A Range of Implements for Endless Possibilities
No matter the season or weather conditions, the Standard L-Series has a versatile range of implements to handle virtually any job - from the LA525 front loader and the BH77 backhoe, to pallet forks, a bale spear, and rear snow blowers. Also, thanks to the Kubota-Land Pride alliance, customers have access to many other Kubota performance-matched implements such as rear rotary cutters, rear rotary tillers, rear blades and much more.
Maximum Comfort and a Focus on Safety
With a spacious operator deck and adjustable seat suspension, the new L2501 offers exceptional operator comfort. Features include a dash panel with easy-to-read, large gauges for enhanced visibility of vital information. The model's sleek design with slanted one-piece hood provides an exceptional field of vision - ideal for highly productive and precise front loader work. Other operator-friendly features include two headlamps, a cup holder, and a tool box. With safety always a top priority in the design of Kubota equipment, all models come standard with a foldable ROPS and a retractable seatbelt.
