Kubota Enters Hay Tools and Spreaders Market
Kubota Tractor Corporation announced it will enter the hay market in 2014 with an all-new line of Kubota Hay Tools.
The new implements will be produced by Kverneland Group, an international company that develops, produces, and distributes ag machinery. Kubota completed a full-ownership acquisition of Kverneland Group in May 2012. The Kverneland Group brings to Kubota 134 years of experience in successfully developing and producing implements.
“Kubota’s acquisition of Kverneland strengthens our global product portfolio while providing an opportunity for our U.S. dealers to expand their offerings to serve the needs of our haymaking customers,” says Todd Stucke, Kubota.
The first phase of implements will be available at Kubota dealerships in early 2014 and will include five disc mowers, ranging from 5’6” to 10’5”; a rotary rake and tedder, with a working width of 13’9” and 17’1” respectively; and pendulum spreaders, with capacities ranging from 7.8 to 47.7ft3.
