When we built the Kubota M135GX mid size tractor sold and serviced at Western Implement Co., at Grand Junction and Montrose Colorado; the most powerful tractor in the Grand X Series, we had three things in mind — comfort, quality and innovative performance. We checked off comfort with a luxury Grand X Cab, quality with a 135 HP Kubota diesel engine and frame design, and innovative performance with a host of hardworking features. It's one powerful solution to all your tough jobs.
Clean and Powerful Performance
The Common Rail System (CRS) electronically controls the fuel injection timing and amount in stages rather than all at once for optimal combustion. The results are great efficiency, better fuel economy and less engine noise. Its combination with the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Muffler reduces harmful emissions to make the Grand X Series Interim Tier IV-compliant.
Kubota Clean Diesel Engines
Kubota’s compact 4-cylinder turbocharged Common Rail System (CRS) diesel engines with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Muffler combine tremendous power with outstanding fuel economy, and low noise and emissions. The V6108 engine for the M126GX and M135GX packs a whopping 125HP and 135HP respectively, while the V3800 for the M100GX and M110GX delivers an ample 100HP and 110HP respectively. And with maximum torque at low rpms, you can get the job done quicker and more efficiently. These engines also feature a powerful Waste Gate System turbocharger, for remendous lugging and recovery power.
Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Muffler/4-valve, Center-Direct Injection System
Intelli-Shift Transmission for maximum versatility, the 24F/24R Intelli-Shift transmission features an 8-speed powershift with a 3-speed, Hi/Med/Low range for 24 gears in forward and reverse. A convenient single lever operates both the powershift and range shift. Upshift and downshift are also at the touch of a button. A sophisticated microprocessor enables smooth, fatigue-free powershifting, and generous gear overlap means less changing of gears during operation.
Auto Mode enables automatic shifting to maximize performance when your load or terrain changes. In Travel mode, the gears will be adjusted depending on road conditions and amount of acceleration; uphill and downhill. In Field mode, a downshift of 2 gears occurs once the three-point hitch has been raised. Field mode also keeps drops in PTO revolution to a minimum when the PTO switch is engaged.
When the front wheels exceed a turning angle of about 35°, Kubota’s Bi-Speed Turn rotates the front wheels at a rate of speed nearly twice that of the rear wheels. The result is a smoother, tighter turn, allowing you to turn into rows on your first attempt, or to easily maneuver around livestock yards or buildings.
Bevel-gear Front Axle
Another Kubota exclusive, the bevel-gear front-wheel drive enables the tractors to achieve a tight turning radius, thanks to a generous 50° wheel-turning angle, enabling easy handling in varying conditions. The bevel gear design eliminates open U-joints and all components are hermetically sealed in oil.
Electro-Hydraulic Differential Locks
Getting bogged down in mud will no longer slow you down with this feature. Simply engage the electro-hydraulic differential locks on both front and rear wheels to achieve positive traction—and you’re up and out and back on the job.
Front Suspension System
The front suspension helps give you a comfortable ride and stable and precise operation. It works seamlessly with a shock absorber to smoothly negotiate rough terrain.(Available as a factory option for M135GX only)
Quad Front Lights
Two main head lights at the bottom and two work lights on the top of front mask increase visibility especially in dark and inclement conditions.
One-piece Full-open Hood
The one-piece hood fully opens for easy access to the engine for maintenance. The hood is also slanted to increase visibility.
Wrap-around Front Grille
The smooth, flat, and easy-to-clean front grille design prevents hay, straw, and grass from getting caught inside the tractor. And, by allowing a high volume of air to flow in, the engine stays cooler.
Easy Cleaning and Maintenance
For fast cleaning, the sliding, louverless-type AC condenser and condenser net can be removed in a snap. The flat surface of the battery and tray also makes serviceability easier.
Dual Element is standard equipment, the internal sa
High Crop Clearance
To offer one of the highest crop clearance in their class, the front axle propeller shaft passes through the engine oil pan to provide ample clearance.
Hydraulic Flow Valves and Auxiliary Control Valve
To ensure faster loader cycle times and instantaneous implement response, Grand X tractors have high-flow, 18.7 gpm (M100GX/M110GX) and 20.4 gpm (M126GX/M135GX) hydraulic pump. Two remote valves come standard—an SCD/Self-Canceling Detent and FD/Float-type valve. The maximum installation is 4 valves.
Individual Flow Control Valve (Optional)
The optional individual flow control valve allows the hydraulic flow to be adjusted independently for up to 4 auxiliary control valves so each valve together or the valves and 3-point hitch can be operated simultaneously. The oil flow rate is easily regulated by adjusting each flow control dial.
Live-Independent Hydraulic PTO
No matter what kind of work you need to do, you’ve got the power to operate a variety of rear-mounted implements with Kubota’s 2-speed PTO (540 rpm and 1,000 rpm). To further increase productivity, our independent PTO can be engaged and disengaged by simply operating a control knob with automatic modulation for smooth engagement, and without stopping the tractor.
Live-Independent Hydraulic PTO
One snap ring, easy to change PTO shafts.
High Capacity 3P Hitch
Thanks to its large diameter outer cylinder, the 3-point hitch offers extra lifting capacity to easily handle jobs that require heavy implements.
Floating Lift Rods
The standard, both-side floating lift rods give these tractors a smoother ride and enhanced traction while using the 3-point hitch, especially on uneven terrain.
Quick Implement Hookup
The innovative design of the Category II 3-point hitch permits fast and easy implement attachment. The telescopic lower link ends, telescopic stabilizers, crank-style right-lift rod, and the left fender-mounted remote hitch switch all work together to make hookup a snap.
Ultra-durable and ultra-tough, the super sturdy drawbar bracket can handle the roughest hauling jobs, such as pulling heavy trailers.
Trailer Coupler (7-Pin)
An electric outlet is standard for use with a trailer or additional electrical implements.
