The Kubota B8200 compact utility tractor was manufactured mostly in the eighties from 1983 up until 1990. There is a slightly smaller version of it available, called the Kubota B7200. All production of the tractor took place in Japan, where they also produced 5 variations. The first is the Kubota B8200F tractor that is built on a 4×2 2WD chassis. The Kubota B8200DT is built on a 4×4 MFWD 4WD chassis. A 4×2 2WD chassis is used on the Kubota B8200E. Both the Kubota B8200D and the Kubota B8200HST-D are built on a 4×4 MFWD 4WD chassis, but the HST-D is different as it uses a hydrostatic transmission. The tractors using the hydrostatic transmission have an infinite range of gears both in forward and when reversing, which gives it a top speed of 11.7 mph. The other variations have a top speed of 12.1 mph using a tranmission box that gives it 9 speeds going forward and 3 in reverse.
The engine used in the Kubota B8200 is a Kubota designed and built D950-A-DT diesel with natural aspiration. This 3 cylinder engine has a displacement of 0.9 liters and maintains it’s temperature using a liquid cooling system that needs to be kept full at 4.2 liters to work optimally. The air intake for the engine is filtered using a dry paper element air cleaner.
To adequately control it’s speed, the Kubota B8200 uses dry, internal expanding brakes while it comes with manual steering as standard, but you had the choice of upgrading to power steering when buying it new. The open hydraulic system on the this compact tractor has a hydraulic fluid capacity of 18.2 liters (4.8 US gallons). It uses a category 1, 3 point hitch for attaching implements to the rear of the tractor which has a maximum rear lifting capacity of 580 kg (1280 lbs).
