With the introduction of the LX20 Series, Kubota Canada is adding two new compact tractor models to its lineup of compact equipment.

The new LX20 Series of compact tractors includes the LX3520 and the LX4020 models. The new series is available with 35 or 40 horsepower to meet a variety of needs, and includes upgrades such as ​​improved comfort​ and operator controls​,​​ noise reduction, ​​​​premium loader operability​ and an increased travel speed​.

Kubota Canada has also introduced the LX3520 Narrow is a narrow model with a width less than 101 cm, allowing for ease of use between trees, making it an ideal equipment option for orchards, vineyards, and nurseries.  

The new LX20 Series compact tractors will be available at Kubota dealers across Canada during​ the winter of 2024.​

 “The new LX20 Series models represent the core ​​​​​pillars​ of Kubota’s compact tractor lineup, built with quality, durability and performance in mind,” said Chris Isaac, Product Manager for Compact Utility Tractors at Kubota Canada.

“​​​​​Available​ with a variety of implements, the versatility of the LX3520 and LX4020 make them invaluable property maintenance tools for easy material handling and transport​.​​ The size of the equipment is just right in that it allows users to operate in tighter areas and be nimble, without sacrificing power, performance, or comfort.” ​ ​     ​ 

Kubota’s integrated cab

For operator comfort, the LX20 Series’ integrated cab includes features that prioritize noise reduction. The four-pillar design with rounded glass gives the operator ample space and panoramic views, while the high back suspension seat is designed to absorb shock and reduce operator fatigue.

The large, flat deck provides more legroom, and makes it easier to enter and exit the tractor, as does the door’s wide opening.

Each tractor has ergonomic lever grips and a steering wheel for easy access and smooth low vibration operation during any application, as well as powerful LED work lights to provide strong visibility at night.   

Compact tractor operability  

The LX3520 and LX4020 include an independent, clutch-less PTO switch for simple engagement and disengagement while in operation and the Kubota proven three-range HST transmission, which provides optimal speeds that cater to the job at hand.

As well, the LX20 series can be equipped with Land Pride’s Quick Hitch, a feature which improves ease of switching out rear implements and reducing the time it takes to do so. Designed for operators who have more than one rear three-point implement, the Quick Hitch saves time and helps to reduce fatigue.    

Improved lift capacity 

The 35 and 40 horsepower models meet a variety of needs and boast a new three-point lift capacity of 893 kg, nearly 136 kg more than the current LX3310 model.

The Kubota 4-Point Quick Connect Front Hitch lets the operator connect and disconnect the front PTO-driven attachments in no time at all, while the dual engine memory switch allows the operator to adjust ideal engine rpm by the press of the button.

The newly adapted brush guard option helps prevent the bonnet and grill from being damaged, and the auto throttle links the engine speed to the travel speed so the operator can control engine rpm with the HST pedal. This allows the operator to set the rpm to a desired level and increase as needed for various applications.  

LA545 front loader  

​​The Kubota designed and built LA545 loader matched to the LX3520 and LX4020 has premium valving, allowing simultaneous boom and bucket operation with a regenerative circuit that makes it comfortable to operate. ​
