Introducing Kubota’s New B2401 Compact Tractor

2/10/2020 Categories: Company News , Media Center

GRAPEVINE, Texas (February 13, 2020) – Kubota Tractor Corporation today unveiled its newest compact tractor, the B2401, adding two new models to its popular B01 Series of compact tractors – the new B2401DT and the B2401DT Narrow. Both models come standard with a gear drive transmission and boast a 21.9 gross horsepower Kubota diesel engine at an affordable price point. 

 “Kubota established the B Series tractor line over 46 years ago, and today we are adding a gear drive transmission to the current lineup that raises the bar in power and productivity for the entire category,” said Kelcey Cockrell, Kubota product manager. “With this model, residential and professional operators alike will experience a new level of power and control, especially when operating front, mid, and rear implements.”

B2401: Affordable, Powerful, Functional 

The B2401 offers more power options, and thus more value to its compact tractor offerings. The B2401 operates intuitively with an ergonomic lever design, optimal precision with position control, and ease of implement attaching and detaching with the new LA435 Swift-tach Loader and telescopic stabilizers on the 3-Point Hitch. Kubota's industry-exclusive B2401 Narrow is only 35.6 inches wide, making it ideal for spraying, mowing and towing in tight rows, such as 48-to-60-inch rows, for commercial and hobby farm vineyards, nurseries and greenhouses.

Kubota B01 Series Now Complete with Three Models

Whether mowing lawns, working light construction or landscaping, the B01 Series has an operator-friendly compact tractor for the job. Kubota launched the B01 Series with the B2301 and B2601 in 2019; now, the B2401 rounds-out the compact tractor series with a wider range of industry-leading power and comfort features. Kubota’s B01 Series features the industry exclusive Goodyear® R14T crossover tire, with a new hybrid tread design. 


Implements for Every Job 

Optimized for overall versatility and flexibility, the B01 Series is designed to work with a large variety of easy-to-use implements to increase operator productivity. From the popular, Kubota-built LA435 Swift-Tach front loader, mid mount mowers, and BH70 backhoe, to the full lineup of performance-matched Land Pride implements, the B01 Series is the tool of many trades using its power and functionality to meet many demands. Additional implements include Land Pride’s rotary cutters and tillers, landscape rake, post hole diggers, rear-mount snow blower, and box blades, among others, as well as Kubota’s four-point quick connect front hitch with a variety of front snow removal implements. 

Kubota’s complete B01 Series of compact tractors, including the new B2401, are available now at authorized Kubota dealers nationwide.
