With lower overall height and a lower profile, the M108S is perfect for low-clearance applications, especially orchard work. The tractor height reaches a modest 91 inches with ROPS upright (69 inches with ROPS folded) and boasts a host of ergonomic features including low fenders, a special operator station and a lower foldable ROPS frame, all specifically designed for this type of work. Yet, with all these fearutes the M108S still provides the power and durability you've come to expect from a Kubota tractor.
The rounded fenders of the M108S provide two height settings depending on the tire size—the low setting is 55.7 inches and the high setting is 58.1 inches. The fenders are also free of lever guards and hazard lamps to prevent low-hanging limbs or branches from getting caught.
The engine of the M108X has been redesigned and reengineered. Of course, it boasts the same durability and quality you 've come to expect from Kubota E-CDIS diesel engines. But, this new turbocharged engine is now cleaner than ever before and offers higher torque and incredible pulling power. The CRS (Common Rail System) and Cooled EGR (Exaust Gas Recirculation) System reduce emissions, helping with compliance to U.S. EPA Tier III emissions regulations. We've increased horsepower to 108 and PTO power to 96HP.
CRS (Common Rail System)
Typically found in automobiles to help reduce emissions and decrease fuel consumption, CRS has been implemented on our M108S engine to accomplish the same results. The CRS electronically controls the timing and amount of fuel injection. By delivering high-pressure injections in stages, rather than all at once, an optimal combustion rate is achieved, thus offering greater efficiency in the cylinder. This equates into less combustion noise, commonly known as "diesel knocks", better fuel efficiency and cleaner emissions. By controlling the amount of fuel injection, the CRS also serves to provide greater torque so that operations in the mid-to-high revolution range, such as baling, can be performed more smoothly.
Cooled ERG System
Our Cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) System aims at the same end as the CRS; to reduce noxious emissions. Specifically, the Cooled EGR System reduces smog-producing nitrogen oxides by lowering the combustion temperature. It accomplishes this by diverting exhaust gas through a cooler and then returning it to the combustion chambers, where the cooled gases minimize temperatures and hamper nitrogen oxide formation.
The new LCD readout makes viewing the vital functions of your tractor clear and easy. View travel speed, PTO revolution, and hour meter information digitally. Illuminated analog indicators include a large tachometer, temperature gauge and fuel gauge. A 4WD indicator and battery warning light have also been added to keep you informed.
New halogen headlights with corner lamps
We've mounted the headlights higher to improve visibility, even during loader work. These halogen lights with corner lamps are efficient and provide excellent illumination.
