M8540 Narrow 85 HP

Kubota M8540n

Kubota M8540n is a 85HP 4WD tractor on a narrow compact chassis, the ideal choice for orchards, greenhouses and vineyards. Featuring Kubota’s latest Tier III compliant, 4 cylinder C-CDIS (centre direct injection system) turbo charged engine. The high performance, low emission engines certainly live up to Kubota's reputation for efficiency by delivering unrivalled fuel economy, and minimising noise and vibration levels. This excellent fuel economy is matched with a 110 Litre capacity fuel tank enabling you to undertake many hours of work without refuelling.

Delivering unrivalled productivity and manoeuvrability, the hydraulic shuttle gives smooth progressive take up of the drive and responsive, clutchless directional changes, ideal for front loader work in particular. Also fitted with Kubota’s Bi-Speed turn feature enabling smoother, tighter turns. Creep speed, Autohitch and 4 wheel braking are standard.

The M8540n offers a more spacious operating platform. All levers, including an Integral loader joystick, are conveniently located to the right of the driver for ease of access and simplicity of operation whilst the fully suspended seat, tiltable steering column and Air Conditioning fitted as standard provide comfort and reduce fatigue. Visibility is improved all round by the cab's rounded glass, front and back Halogen work lights and corner post exhaust pipe.

  • Tier III compliant engine
  • Bi-Speed turn
