Kubota was one of the many participants at the recent National Association of Farm Broadcasting Trade Talk event in Kansas City, Missouri last week. I had the opportunity to talk with Kent Brown, Senior Product Manager of tractors over 100 HP, and David Palmer, Senior Product Manager covering hay and forage implements, each with something new and exciting to talk about in their divisions.
A highly awaited addition to the large tractor division is the new M7 and it finally hit dealerships earlier this year. The company is hosting “Ride and Drive” events throughout the country to garner excitement for this new product and inviting customers out and putting them in the seat of the largest tractor built by Kubota is working, Brown told me.
“We’ve gotten a lot of excitement about. People who said, ‘I didn’t realize Kubota had a tractor this big’ and saying ‘We’re really going to look at this tractor’.”
Palmer spoke about new additions in his division as well- a new, 13 foot width roller conditioner and 5×6 variable chamber baler.
“We’re excited about these two new products we’re brining to the market place and it just continues to prove that Kubota is not only is leading the hay and forage industry, they’re continuing to expand into the marketplace each year.
