The Kubota Corporation was founded way back in 1890 and actually started out producing cast-iron water pipes in Japan. Today they are involved in numerous different markets and started producing lawn mowers around 30 years ago.
The company has actually pioneered some of the biggest technical advances in the lawn mower industry during the last 30 years, including:
The first four wheel drive ride-on front rotary mower.
The first hydrostatic transmission system for ride-on diesel mowers and compact tractors.
The first powered steering systems fitted as standard to 19-45HP ride-on mowers.
Kubota don’t actually produce walk behind mowers, they only offer ride-on models so if you´ve only got a small or medium sized garden you might want to look at another brand. They currently offer two lawn tractor series which are aimed at the homeowner: the T series which includes three different models and the GR series which includes a couple of more heavy duty lawn tractors.
Their F series contains 3 different models all designed for commercial use and then the Z Series includes two different models of zero turn mower which can be used by both the homeowner and for commercial use.
