The Kubota L3800 is very similar to the Kubota L3200, but it is slightly bigger and more powerful. The L3800 is powered by a 3 cylinder diesel engine. This engine has a total displacement of 1.826 liters and is a 4 stroke. The engine is prevented from overheated thanks to a liquid cooling system and is aligned vertically. The motor in the L 3800 has a rated speed of 2800 rpm. It’s maximum power output 37.4 hp, while the PTO has a maximum measured power output of 31.5 hp. The engine is started by a 12 volt battery that produces 470 cold cranking amps and is recharged by a 45 amp alternator.
There is a choice of transmission on the Kubota L3800 compact tractor. Some choose the gear shift transmission that gives the tractor 8 speeds when traveling forwards and 4 when it’s reversing. This gives the L3800 a top speed of 21.2 kph (13.2 mph). The other gearbox choice is a hydrostatic HST transmission. This transmission gives the tractor infinite speeds over 3 ranges. It allows the tractor to achieve a max speed of 22.7 kph (14.1 mph) when traveling forwards. The engine also powers the hydraulic system on the tractor which control the rear hitch. This rear 3 point hitch is a category 1 model that has a maximum safe lifting capacity of 906 kg (1998 lbs).
The Kubota L3800 compact tractor has a choice of chassis (either 2WD or 4WD) when you are purchasing it brand new. The 2WD chassis has a slightly smaller minimum turning radius of 2.4 m, while the turning radius of the 4WD model is 2.5 m.
