The Kubota L45TLB utility tractor redefines versatility with rugged performance and intuitive design. Ready to work with a 45 HP Kubota diesel engine, smooth HST Plus transmission and standard 4-Wheel Drive, the L45 is built to bring it day after day.
You'll experience greater power, dependability and cleaner emissions with the 45HP Kubota diesel engine. It starts quickly in cold weather and sustains high torque rise, even under heavy loads or at lower speeds. Special balancers provide lower noise and vibration levels, and a spark arrestor muffler is standard equipment.
HST Plus Transmission
With Hydro Dual Speed (H-DS), Load Sensing Ability, HST Response Control and Auto Throttle Advance, the L45's HST Plus Transmission achieves superior performance by providing automated control of both the HST pump and motor.
Feather-Step Operation (Hydraulic Servo System)
Our HST also comes with a smoother, more responsive pedal, thanks to Kubota's traditional hydraulic servo system, which decreases the amount of pressure required to depress the pedal.
Four-Wheel Drive
The L45's four-wheel drive gives you the power and stability you need, especially when pulling heavy loads or working on unsound terrain. The front wheel drive bevel gear assures that you always get a smooth and full power transfer.
The L45's onboard system provides comprehensive tractor information. Get current working status, engine, fuel and oil warning signals, as well as maintenance indications in simple, standard indicator form.
Full Flat Deck
Ou full-flat deck gives you ample legroom. This makes operation more comfortable and mounting and dismounting the tractor easy. Additionally, this deck substantially reduces vibration and driver fatigue through the use of rubber mounts.
Walk-Thru Step
The generous step-thru area lets you switch from loader to backhoe operation quickly and easily. The seat pivots on the spot to eliminate operator dismounts or having to climb over the seat.
Arm Rests
The L45's arm rests help reduce arm movement and operator fatigue, especially when performing loader work.
Slant Nose Hood
The L45's distinctive slant nose hood design isn't just for looks. This unique styling offers you a greater field of view, allowing you to see more of what's in front of you.
Backhoe Crawling Mode
A rare feature for this type of TLB, Kubota's backhoe crawling mode allows you to move at "creep" speed while at the controls of the backhoe. This is especially time-saving when repositioning along lengthy trenches.
Integrated Main Frame
The L45's integral main frame absorbs twisting loads during backhoe and loader opeation and will not transmit flex to the tractor chassis. This ensures the tractor's structural integrity.
Heavy-Duty Rear Axle
The heavy-duty rear axle uses multiple wet-disc brakes for extended life and smooth stopping performance.
Independent PTO
Our independent PTO allows you to engage and disengage the rear PTO while the tractor is in motion. So, there's no need to stop the tractor's travel to engage or disengage the rear PTO. For safer and more convenient PTO use, the L45 features auto shut-off and protective flip-up shields.
3-Point Hitch Storage
Have the backhoe mounted? When not in use, pack away the optional Category I 3-point hitch linkage in our convenient storage spaces.
Lifting Capacity
The L45's productive hydraulic system means heavy-duty loads are no match for its 2,200-pound lifting capacity and 9'6" lifting height.
Auto-Leveling Valve
The auto-leveling valve automatically keeps the bucket or pallet fork horizontal as the loader boom raises and lowers. The On/Off switch deactivates the system for greater operation control. Spills are reduced, while pallet fork operation and loading jobs are made easier.
Slanted Boom Design
Slanted to match the L45's hood, the front loader boom design provides operators with a greater field of view when changing attachments. It also gives the tractor a more sleek and modern appearance.
Protected Hoses
The hydraulic hoses are routed through the L45's loader boom for clearer operator views, as well as increased hose protection and durability.
Brace-Less Frame
The L45's brace-less loader frame design improves visibility over the hood, to the side and when servicing the engine. It helps you to be safer, more productive and more efficient.
Quick Coupler
The quick coupler is simple to use and dependable. Quick, easy on/off buckets and pallet forks require no tools, only mounting pins and hose couplers allowing you to move onto the next task in a matter of minutes.
Optional 3rd Function Valve
The L45 can be equipped with our optional 3rd function valve. This large-capacity (11.8GPM) valve makes Skid Steer-type attachments, such as augers and sweepers, easier to operate.
Front Guard
Beautiful protection. The front guard is engineered to match the L45's sleek, slanted hood and loader design.
