Kubota Tractors – Multitasking
The phrase multitasking has become commonplace, and is liked and disliked in equal measure by many people. It has a better meaning in an industrial or mechanical sense, and is actually an ideal phrase for understanding the nature and diversity of the work as a modern day Kubota tractor can do. It is not simply that a modern day Kubota tractor can do several tasks at once just for the fun of it because it is more productive.
It is actually in the nature of the work that a Kubota tractor is likely to do on a modern-day form a large area of land, that it is necessary, often vital to be able to manoeuvre several different tasks at the same time. The driver of a Kubota tractor will need to be able to control and use steering controls, shifting controls and use remote hydraulic controls at the same time.
This obviously depends to an extent on the nature of the task, but there are numerous examples where the work of a Kubota tractor will involve negotiating rough terrain or land, whilst engaged in the work that the Kubota tractor, such as the Kubota B series B 2320 HST, is being designed to do.
Over the years all contract manufacturers have tried to standardise as far as possible the type and colour of control needed for different functions within the instrument panel or control panel of the tractor.
As such, if you’re using a modern day Kubota tractor is likely to be standardised with other manufacturers by way of colour coding of various controls, and where those controls are located within the operating cab of the tractor.
Whilst this is true of many modern day tractors, it will not necessarily apply to older tractors which may well still be in use on many farms and agricultural holdings nowadays. It is important therefore when using any Kubota tractor or any tractor by any manufacturer to be clear as to the age and stability of the tractor.
