Trusted power meets quality.


Power made for high performance

The M8 series is paired with the formidable and efficient Cummins B6.7 Performance Series engine, one of the most dependable in the market. Available in 180 horsepower and 200 horsepower models, the B6.7 features an EGR-free design that enables greater fuel efficiency and lower emissions.

This six-cylinder, 6.7L workhorse enhances your productivity using proven single Holset VGT™ variable-geometry turbocharger technology. Overall, this achieves exceptional power density and responsiveness with fuel-efficient performance while delivering outstanding reliability and durability.

Amped for power. Maxed for efficiency

The integrated Single Module™ after treatment system combines the Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC), Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) in one unit which provides clean emissions to meet EPA Tier 4 Final / Stage V standards and deliver great efficiency.

Easy to Operate

Kubota engineers all our tractors to be easy and simple to use. The M8 Series’ intuitive controls and convenient features are designed to streamline and enhance operations. This machinery is built with the understanding that your tractor is your office—it must be as comfortable as it is efficient in every way possible.

Likewise, the M8 Series’ command center is crafted with the operator in mind: from clear interface design, ergonomically arranged controls, to a configuration that minimizes hand and foot movement for efficient control of the tractor. This adds to a complete operating experience focused on confident workability and precision farming.

Precision Farming

Precision Farming

The M8 is compatible with all industry leading precision farming solutions. Whether engaging auto steering to simplify your tasks on the go or utilizing your prescription mapping to maximize your yields.



Easily view the M8 Series’ functions through the standard 7” K-Monitor or optional 12” K-Monitor Pro LCD touch screen display. It’s simple to use and gives you access to a host of features that help you get the job done. It includes: Tractor Systems Control, ISO-BUS compatible implement control, with connectivity for cameras to the monitor. You can even select the information you want displayed to reflect what matters to you.

ISO-BUS Standard

ISO-BUS Standard

The M8 Series’ models can handle ISO-BUS compatible implements. Just attach the implement to the universal plug, and information will be displayed on the LCD monitor for adjustment and control.

Kubota Headland Control

Kubota Headland Control

A smarter way to take control. The Kubota Headland Control allows the creation of customizable programs for fully automated operations of the tractor and ISO-BUS compatible implements. The Headland Control System frees the operator to concentrate on maneuvering the tractor, and helps to ensure more precise turns.

Transmissions built for a multitude of work

Power needs the proper transmission to maximize its full potential. The Kubota M8 Series features a fully electronic controlled Semi-Powershift transmission system or the optional KVT transmission. This means the Kubota M8 Series can effectively work at the speed you need.

A full range of speeds for full-size results


Quickly reach the right speed for the job thanks to the speed matching feature. The fully electronic controlled Semi-Powershift Transmission comes with 30 forward and 15 reverse gears with speeds up to 40 km/h. There are 6 powershift gears per range, with two gear overlap, reducing the need to make range changes in working conditions. Upgrade to increase travel speed to 50 km/h with a suspended front axle.


Take advantage of a transmission system that provides infinite forward and reverse speeds. Programmed for seamless speed setting to perfectly match the ideal working range for the job.


Enjoy smooth engagement when you change directions when moving forward or in reverse. The M8 comes standard with both a left-hand lever and right-hand multi-function handle control, for more shuttling flexibility.


Select 1 of 4 PTO speeds using the ECO/Standard mode lever and 540/1000 lever that are strategically positioned on the right rear section of the cabin for convenience. Utilizing economy mode will allow the PTO to operate at the required RPM with the tractor set at a lower engine rpm. This improves fuel economy while reducing noise and vibration. Customize PTO modulation to match the load on your implement. Faster modulation for lighter rotational loads or slower modulation for smoother PTO engagement on heavier loads.

3 shafts sizes are available:
540rpm | 1 3/8” 6-spline
1000rpm | 1 3/8” 21-spline
1000rpm | 13/4” 20-spline (Optional)


Eco Mode or standard operation selector for 540 or 1000 RPM (Small & Large) are strategically positioned on the right rear section of the cabin for convenience.

Hydraulics & 3-Point Hitch

This tractor built for the tasks of today and tomorrow, the M8 Series is highly customizable to your requirements. Whether you need precision or speed, the M8 can achieve both. It comes with reliable hydraulics and a 3-point hitch that offers maximum flexibility and strength.

The M8 Series’ hydraulic system delivers superior multitasking and efficiency. Its 3-point hitch can lift mounted equipment easily as well as handle a wide range of implements.
