Proven, Powerful, and Reliable Kubota Diesel Engine
The M60 Series are powered by the V3307 Series Kubota diesel engine, This 3.3 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder engine has been designed specifically to reduce noise and vibration. The M60 Series engines also feature an electronic governor that gives you electronic control of engine rpm. Activating the system keeps engine revolution constant, preventing drops in PTO speed and enabling stable operation. It makes working with PTO driven implements much more efficient.
The Category I/II 3-point hitches provide fast and simple attachment of rear-mounted implements with telescopic lower link ends, standard on all models, which further shows how Kubota is a step above.
Fuel Saving Economy PTO*
For economy PTO operation, change the lever to 540E position. The engine operates at lower rpm to save fuel and reduce operating noise while still turning the PTO shaft at 540 rpm. Under the economy PTO operation, 540 PTO rpm is available at 1828 engine rpm on the M6060/M7060.
*Standard on M7060 HD12/HDC12; Optional for F8/R8 and other M60 series models
The hydraulics on the M60 Series are state-of-the-art. External hydraulic cylinders improve the lifting power and offer easier maintenance. The front loader cycle times are short, increasing productivity and facilitating operation. One (SCD) hydraulic remote valve is standard, with the option to add up to 2 more, plus an optional flow control valve to control the oil flow volume.
Hydraulic Independent PTO
Pulling, lifting, cutting or baling – the hydraulic independent PTO makes your toughest work easier. Self-modulation engagement with an Electric PTO Switch means implements like a rear cutter engage smoothly. The PTO brake engages when the clutch is shut off and securely holds the PTO shaft. The PTO clutch can be hydraulically engaged and disengaged on the go. This means mowing, operating hay equipment or spraying orchards are all made more efficient.
Ultra Grand Cab
Stay comfortable year-round in the Ultra Grand Cab – with curved glass and curved upper windshield for more visibility. For even more comfort, the optional Air Ride seat offers exceptional seat suspension to make sure whatever path you’re on is smooth.
The M60 Series also has the time tested Kubota bevel gear front axle, which allows for low maintenance, exceptional turning radius and better ground clearance when compared to traditional u-joint front axles.The bevel-gear front axle provides the M60 Series with greater all-around maneuverability, whether you’re in the tight confines of a barnyard or straddling tall windrows in a hay field. The limited slip differential on the front and differential lock on the rear are standard features, offering increased stability and traction on the challenging ground conditions.
- F8/R8 Transmissions – Four speed synchronized main shift and a high/low range supply tractors with 8 Forward and 8 Reverse speeds
- F12/R12 Transmissions (Factory Option)* – Six speed synchronized main shift and a high/low range give a total of 12 Forward and 12 Reverse speeds to help find the right speed for different applications
*Available on M7060
- Overdrive (F12/R12 models only) – The overdrive function keeps the engine revolutions at around 1960 rpm during high speed driving for better fuel economy
The M60 Series operator’s station provides optimal comfort with a deluxe seat, armrests, wide area rubber floor mat and ergonomic controls built into a console for a more refined finish. The M60 Series also has deluxe features such as a hydraulic shuttle and fully synchronized main shift transmission that allows for clutchless forward and reverse direction changes and easy on the go shifting.
