2013 Kubota M108SHD (4WD)
What you thought was impossible in a mid-size tractor is now ... M Possible.
V3800 4-cylinder Kubota Diesel Engine - The M96S and the M108S are built with the power and durability to take on even the most heavy-duty tasks. This is due to their 4-valve, Electronic Center Direct Injection System engines, which help them realize greater pulling power.
M108S Engine - The engine of the M108S has been redesigned and reengineered. Of course, it boasts the same durability and quality you've come to expect from Kubota E-CDIS diesel engines. But, this new turbocharged engine is now cleaner than ever before, offering higher torque and incredible pulling power. The CRS (Common Rail System) and Cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) System reduce emissions, helping with compliance to U.S. EPA Tier III emissions regulations. We've increased horsepower to 108 on the M108S and PTO power from 93 to 96HP. These are big changes for a big tractor, and ones you'll certainly observe out in the field.
CRS (Common Rail System) - Typically found in automobiles to help reduce emissions and decrease fuel consumption, CRS has been implemented on our M108S engine to accomplish the same results. The CRS electronically controls the timing and amount of fuel injection. By delivering high-pressure injections in stages, rather than all at once, an optimal combustion rate is achieved, thus offering greater efficiency in the cylinder. This equates into less combustion noise, commonly known as "diesel knocks", better fuel efficiency and cleaner emissions. By controlling the amount in the mid-to-high revolution range, such as baling, can be performed more smoothly.
Cooled EGR System - Our Cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) System aims at the same end as the CRS; to reduce noxious emissions. Specifically, the Cooled EGR System reduces smog-producing nitrogen oxides by lowering the combustion temperature. It accomplishes this by diverting exhaust gas through a cooler and then returning it to the combustion chambers, where the cooled gases minimize temperatures and hamper nitrogen oxide formation.
Swing Shift - Our "Swing Shift" gives you access to a total of 16 speeds! The synchronized main shift's "H" pattern puts four speeds immediately at your disposal. The Swing Shift adds to that by actuating the electric-over-hydraulic high/low synchronized range shift for a total of eight speeds-all controlled by a single lever. If a task requires more than eight speeds, simply move the auxiliary range lever left of the seat for eight more to equal16F/16R. An optional, simple-to-install, cassette-type creep provides eight additional slower speeds. That's 24 speeds-enough for the most demanding and precise work.
Swing Shift Plus with Dual Speed - Swing Shift Plus models give you 32F/32R speeds, and allow you to operate the Swing Shift as well as the Dual Speed with just one lever. Should your load suddenly get heavier, just push the Dual Speed's high/low button while you're still in motion. Your speed will reduce by 17%, but lugging force will dramatically increase. Put this feature to best use when taking on large load increases, when working in mixed soil or during hay tool applications. Combining the Dual Speed with the optional creep provides 16 additional slower speeds-a total of 48F/48R-for specialty applications. (Swing Shift Plus with Dual Speed not available on all models. See specs for details.)
Hydraulic Shuttle Shift - Mounted on the left side of the steering column, the shuttle lever's fingertip control makes it possible to shift smoothly from forward to reverse without using the clutch or stopping the tractor. This makes front loader operation significantly easier.
Multiple Wet-Disc Main Clutch - Our multiple wet-disc main clutch ensures smooth and effortless operation and offers greater durability.
Hydraulic Brakes - All it takes is a light touch to activate these highly responsive, hydraulic, wet-type brakes. This feature helps to reduce operator fatigue.
Easy to Shift 4WD Engagement - Stay moving and stay productive by switching the 4-wheel drive on and off without stopping, even when moving out of a field onto a road. (Do not engage while carrying heavy loads, or when a rear wheel has lost traction.)
Extended Wheelbase - The extended wheelbase gives these tractors a lower center of gravity, directly equating to exceptional stability and pulling power.
Heavy-Duty Front Axle - The M96S and M108S are equipped with the same rugged front axle found on larger tractors. So you can rest easy knowing that you can count on reliable performance, even when using the front loader.
Tire Options - To enable the M96S and M108S tractors to perform their best, we offer a variety of tires, including cast iron discs.
Slant Full-Open Hood - The slant-nosed, full-open hood design makes maintenance a snap, as the one-piece hood's dual gas shock assist enables it to lift up easily. This design feature also improves operator visibility over the center of the tractor hood for safer and more efficient working conditions. The curved design also provides a sleeker overall appearance.
Air Cleaner with Built-In Pre-Cleaner - This air cleaner will help protect your engine when operating your Kubota M96S or M108S in particularly dirty or dusty areas.
Corner-Post Exhaust Pipe (Cab Model) - All of our cab models feature a corner-post exhaust pipe, which gives the operator an unobstructed field of view.
New Halogen Headlights with Corner Lamps - We've mounted the headlights high to improve visibility, even during loader work. These halogen lights with corner lamps are efficient and provide excellent illumination.
Deluxe Suspension Seat - Our cab's deluxe suspension seat, with optional air ride suspension, is as comfortable as its name implies. This contoured, high-back seat is ergonomically designed to reduce fatigue, even after long workdays.
Front-Opening Side Glass - The glass panels on the side of the tractor now open from the front, providing better interior air flow.
High Quality Air Conditioner - Our air conditioning system boasts nine air outlets, a dual-level air function and a stronger force of air--to keep you cool even on the hottest days.
Slide-Out AC Condenser - When they require cleaning, the sliding, louverless-type AC condenser and condenser net can be removed easily and quickly.
Radio/Cassette/CD Ready - Speakers, antenna and wire harness are preinstalled for easy hookup.
Auxiliary Remote Control Valves - One remote valve (SCD) is standard on both the M96S and M108S. With the optional flow control valve installed, you can simultaneously operate the 3-point hitch and one remote valve, or two remote valves. Up to three remote valves can be installed in total.
Independent PTO - The PTO clutch enables the implement drive system to engage smoothly, which helps reduce operator fatigue. And because the PTO is independent, you don't have to stop the tractor to engage or disengage the PTO, saving time no matter what the task.
Floating Lift Rods - Floating lift rods are standard on the M96S and M108S. The floating position offer a smoother ride and enhanced traction while using the 3-point hitch, especially on uneven terrain.
Cat. II Hitch (Telescoping Links Standard) - The category II 3-point hitch provides fast and easy attachment of rear-mounted implements. The hitch's telescopic stabilizers and lower link ends make hook up and adjustments simple and worry-free.
Heavy-Duty Drawbar - This rugged and dependable drawbar, usually found on higher-end models, has the muscle it takes to tackle your toughest tasks, such as pulling heavy trailers.
Instrument Panel with LCD Readout - The new instrument panel makes viewing the vital functions of the tractor clear and easy. The LCD readout displays travel speed, PTO revolution and hour meter information digitally. Illuminated analog indicators include a large tachometer, temperature gauge and fuel gauge. A battery warning light has also been added to these tractors to prevent surprise battery failures, as well as indicator lights for 4WD engagement, PTO and oil pressure.
Easy Step Tilt Steering Wheel - Find the position most comfortable for you. Step on the pedal; tilt the wheel to select from among six wheel positions, and the lock it in place. Simply step on the pedal again to unlock the wheel for easy tractor mounting and dismounting.
Foldable ROPS (ROPS Model) - A foldable Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) comes standard on the M96S and M108S. The ROPS can easily be folded down without tools so that the tractor may pass under areas with height constraints, such as doorways or low branches. (There is no operator protection provided by the ROPS in the folded position. For operator safety, the ROPS should be placed in the upright and locked position and the seat belt fastened for all other operations.)
Extra-Wide Operator Platform - The M96S and M108S boast a wide platform that offers more legroom for greater operator comfort.
