The M8 Series is Kubota’s breakthrough tractor line boasting over 200 horsepower. It answers the call of forward-thinking farming and is the company’s newest, largest and highest horsepower utility ag machine yet.

With its eye specifically on large utility and material handling tractor market, the commercial hay and forage market, as well as the mid-sized row crop market, Kubota expects to create synergies for the M8 Series and complementary implements with other areas of its businesses and affiliate supply chains.
Kubota’s new M8 Series is purpose-built for comfort, power and simplicity. A variety of applications are available with easy to use and conveniently located controls.
