Kubota introduced a 14.9kw(20HP) multi-purpose compact tractor in 1989. This tractor was developed to perform light duty applications requiring loader, backhoe, and scraper capabilities as well as operations that require a 3-point hitch or a rear PTO. The design of tractor, loader, and backhoe was originally targeted to be especially suitable for agricultural and light duty industrial applications. The effort was to improve operating efficiency, ease of operation, and operator comfort. “AUTORETURN” system was adapted into the backhoe. Electro-hydraulic control technology reduces the need for operator skills. The detailed description of this technology as applied to multi-purpose compact tractor is described in the body of this report.
