The Kubota L3301 comes with an ergonomic design with a semi-flat deck, which makes it easy to mount and dismount the tractor. Additionally, the tractor’s hoods run away from the driver’s seat smoothly to ensure clear visibility and wide sight.

The opening of the hood is equipped with a gas strut system, making it easy to access the area under the hood. You can easily use this tractor even in your small and mid-size fields and backyards because of its compact form factor.

The body of the L3301 is very sturdy as it is composed of cast steel transmission and a steel hood and fenders.


The small form factor of the Kubota L3301 doesn’t mean that you’ll need to compromise on power. In fact, it’s one of the most powerful tractors available in the market this size.

It has a fuel-efficient engine that generates outstanding power and it meets the emission standard of EPA Tier 4. With these specs, the Kubota L3301 tractor offers superior performance for tasks that require both efficiency and power.

This tractor is available in three different transmission styles.

The first is the HST, or hydrostatic transmission. This is a 3-range transmission that operates in low, medium or high. There is a treadle pedal that controls both forward and reverse. On the L2510 there is also an option to add cruise control. 

The second transmission type is the gear drive transmission. This offers four main shifting speeds and the high/low separate shift is also available. This totals to eight reverse shifts and eight forward shifts that provide outstanding power. It’s important to note that all the shift speeds are inline, making it extremely easy to shift between different speeds.

The last transmission style is the Live PTO, or transmission driven engagement. This style allows you to stop, change gears and backup while power is supplied. This is typically useful for mowing applications.

The Kubota L3301 tractor features wet disc brakes that are smooth and responsive. They remain submerged in oil, which not only allows them to activate with little pressure but it also increases their longevity.

Operator’s Comfort

The Kubota L3301 tractor comes with a spacious driver’s platform and seat for optimal comfort. It allows the operator to work for a longer time with minimal fatigue. Additionally, you can easily mount and dismount the tractor conveniently because of its semi-flat deck design.

The tractor features a foldable protective structure that keeps the operator safe even if the vehicle rolls over. If you need to store the tractor or pass it through an area with low clearance, you can fold down the roll-over protective structure.

The Kubota L3301 can be used on rough and bumpy terrain, thanks to the retractable seat belt. The seat also features adjustable suspension and you can set it according to your preferences. There is also a small drain hole located in the seat that allows the water to escape instantly.

The minimum turn radius of the tractor is around 2.5 meters with 4WD and 2.4 meters for 2WD preset. There are large gauges available that the operator can use to examine the tractor’s vitals such as oil levels. The tractor has a convenient cup holder as well where you can place a water cup or a mug of tea or coffee.

All variants of this tractor offer a large toolbox that’s located behind the driver’s seat (or next to the seat near the left fender in variants with the backhoe). The tractor also offers multiple headlamps that help you to work in low-light conditions.

In addition, there is also a feature-rich dashboard panel offering a large digital LCD and gauges. You can use it to keep an eye on the tractor’s performance and read the engine error codes as well as the RPM, temperature, and fuel level of the tractor.


The Kubota L3301 is equipped with 3 point hitch system which has precise position control for lifting and lowering attachments.
