The Kubota B6000 compact utility tractor is much smaller than many compact tractor models you will find available today. It enjoyed a run of 4 years on the assembly lines from 1973 until production finished in 1977. During this time, 2 variants of the tractor were made available. The first is the Kubota 6000C which is a version of the regular tractor with a 4×4 MFWD 4WD chassis, while the Kubota 6000E has a 4×2 2WD chassis.
The tractor is powered via a Kubota designed and built diesel engine. This 2 cylinder engine gives this small tractor up to 13 hp. The tractor itself is very versatile even in the muddiest of conditions thanks to it’s very rugged tires. The transmission on the tractor provides the Kubota 6000 with 6 gears going forward and 2 gears for reversing. It’s pleasing to note that this plucky little tractor has a rear PTO and category 1, 3 point hitch allowing it to accommodate a wide variety of attachments.
The Kubota B6000 can also obviously take a mower deck so that instead of just being used around you garden or farm as a small and nimble tractor, you can also use it in your garden for cutting the grass. When weighed the tractor with the 4×2 2WD chassis tips the scales at 390 kg (860 lbs), while the 4×4 MFWD 4WD chassis gives the tractor a total weight of 476 kg (1050 lbs). The B6000 is still in wide use today and many feel that it’s just as good, if not better than many of the John Deere ride on lawn mowers and garden tractors that were produced around this time.
