3 Reasons Why the Kubota L Series is the Best Compact Tractor for Farmers


For farmers, small acreage doesn’t mean small jobs. Even for residential farmers, the chore list can be extensive. But whether you’re maintaining your land or moving large amounts of earth around, Kubota USA has you covered with our L Series compact tractors. There are three L Series ranging in size and power to tackle any application you may have, and it’s because of that flexibility that Kubota has been the #1 best-selling compact tractor brand for over a decade.

Why? We’re glad you asked.

When it comes to quality, comfort, and ease of use, nobody outpaces Kubota compact tractors. Of our three L Series – the Standard L01 Series, L356HSTC Limited Edition, and Grand L60 Series – our best seller is the Standard L01 Series. The Standard L01 Series offers several benefits that make it stand out as a perfect option for small property owners.


  • The Standard L01Series’ open working station provides a roomy, airy operating space with contoured suspension seating to reduce fatigue and improve comfort on longer rides.
  • An ergonomic control layout with large gauges make monitoring speed and other levels a breeze.
  • HST models come equipped with a three-range transmission, PTO clutch system and treadle pedal that make finding the balance between torque and speed simpler for easy operation.


  • Kubota is the #1 manufacturer in the world for under 100 HP non-automotive, multi-cylinder diesel engines, and many of our compact tractors are built right here in the USA.
  • We provide heavy-duty construction from the front axle to the rear end, topped off with a steel hood and fenders that ensure strength for years of use.
  • Helical cut gears in the rear housing mean a quieter, stronger gear set that makes jobs run more smoothly and enjoyably.


  • A variety of front loaders and backhoes make digging holes and carrying materials a cinch, with smooth hydraulics for superior lift-and-curl functionality. Best of all, they’re designed to be easily removed and reinstalled without using one tool.
  • Rotary tillers, cutters, and mowers for maintaining beautiful lawns, readying the land for planting and clearing away brush and other unwanted flora.
  • In addition to post hole diggers, ballast boxes and much more, Kubota also offers Land Pride branded attachments engineered specifically for Kubota compact tractors that are backed by the Land Pride Performance Matched Implements and Attachments

In addition to the Standard L01 Series, our L356HSTC Limited Edition and Grand L60 Series models offer comparable quality and premium engineering, but with climate-controlled covered cabs that still offer full, sweeping views and wide legroom for a comfortable ride. The STD L Series comes in 2WD/4WD while all other models come equipped with 4WD and multiple tire options that will suit whatever the specific conditions are of your application and environment.

If you’re looking for further customization of your compact tractor, Kubota provides a “Build My Kubota” service that lets you select all of the options you need to suit your needs. And, as always, each Kubota product is backed by a standard two-year warranty that covers your machine, with the option to extend the warranty through our Orange Protection Program that offers up to six years.
