Kubota Tractor Corporation announced today that it is furthering its commitment to the hay and forage segment by offering a two-year (2) standard limited warranty across its entire hay tools line, including Kubota balers, and a three-year (3) standard limited warranty on its disc mower and disc mower conditioner cutterbars and gearboxes. The news was recently previewed for Kubota’s 1,100 authorized dealers at its virtual annual dealer meeting, along with the introduction of seven new hay and forage products for its already full line of equipment. The new warranty programs are available immediately.
“Kubota is driven to be a leader in the market, and we are taking our warranty offering to a new level to support this goal,” said Dave Palmer, Kubota senior product manager for implements. “We know that farmers have so many struggles to contend with, but equipment shouldn’t be one of them. We will always be there, and we’re backing that assurance with a longer warranty because we’re confident in the quality of products.”
Expansion of Solution-Driven Tools to Deliver Maximum Productivity
New for 2021, Kubota will introduce seven products to expand upon its already full line of hay and forage equipment. These product introductions were previewed with dealers at Kubota’s annual dealer meeting and will be introduced with more details as they are available in the first half of 2021:
• The Kubota Disc Mower Conditioners Series (DMC) will add several new products, including:
– The DMC6300 Series will add the DMC6332 and the DMC6336TVARIO

• The Kubota BV Baler Series (BV) will add the new BV5160R;
• And, the Kubota Wrapper line (WR) will add the new WR1600.

• The DM, DMC, TE, RA, WR products offer a two-year standard limited warranty

Hay Tools Heritage of Innovation and Quality
From disc mowers, disc mower conditioners, tedders and rakes, to balers and wrappers – Kubota’s hay tools are built on a long legacy of groundbreaking agriculture innovation that has been tested and proven in the hay and forage market for more than 100 years. Early inventions by Vicon and Kverneland in the 1900s – from the finger wheel rake in 1949, to the first rotary tedder in 1961 and the first disc mower conditioner combination in 1974 – are now all under the Kubota brand, designed, engineered and built by Kubota.
Kubota completed a full-ownership acquisition of Kverneland Group in 2013, which helped make the first phase of Kubota hay implements possible, including disc mowers, a rotary rake and a tedder. In 2015, Kubota introduced round balers and disc mower conditioners, as well as expanded offerings in the disc mower, rake and tedder lines. In 2016 and 2017, the company launched additional disc mowers, disc mower conditioners, rakes and variances to its round baler line.
“Kubota has built a brand trusted for offering durable, quality-built equipment, and for listening to our customers’ needs – from the day we design a new product, to the day we deliver it,” added Palmer. “This two-year standard limited warranty is a testament to our commitment to our customers to providing solutions for them and for our dealers as we grow together.”
Growing with Farmers into the Future
Not only are Kubota’s product lines growing, the company’s network is growing too. In recent years, Kubota has been on an aggressive North American growth strategy to strengthen its position in the agricultural marketplace and respond to increased demand for its products. For example, in late September, Kubota Manufacturing of America broke ground on a new Research & Development center in Gainesville, Georgia.
In August, the company announced an expansion underway at Great Plains Manufacturing in Kansas to increase production capacity for Kubota equipment in the Midwest. Last year, the company opened its dedicated North American Distribution Center, also in Kansas. Along with expanding the company’s facilities and parts distribution centers, Kubota is also growing its team of product experts to better respond to customers’ needs across the U.S.
Kubota offers a wide range of hay tools from disc mowers, disc mower conditioners, tedders and rakes, to balers and wrappers – all supported by authorized Kubota dealers nationwide. For more product information, please visit the Kubota Hay Tools product pages on www.kubotausa.com/farm-implements.
