This 59HP, Kubota Three-Vortex Combustion System (E-TVCS) engine allows for increased airflow into the combustion chamber, where it mixes quickly and evenly with fuel from the fuel injection nozzle to produce greater power, increased efficiency and cleaner emissions. Specifically, this machine’s Cooled EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) System reduces smog-producing nitrogen oxides, by lowering the combustion temperature, helping it to comply with the EPA’s interim Tier IV emissions regulations. The M59 diesel engine system includes a large displacement engine to help reduce noise and vibration.

HST Plus Transmission The M59’s HST Plus Transmission achieves superior performance by providing automated control of both the HST pump and motor. Its key features include: Hydro Dual Speed (H-DS), Load Sensing ability, HST Response Control and Auto Throttle Advance.

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.

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.

Four-wheel Drive The M59’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. And the 55° steering angle and compact differential provide you with the ground clearance and maneuverability you need for a wide array of work applications. Heavy-duty Rear Axle The heavy-duty rear axle uses multiple wet-disc brakes for extended life and smooth stopping performance. Integrated Main Frame The M59’s integral main frame absorbs twisting loads during backhoe and loader operation and will not transmit flex to the tractor chassis. This makes the tractor’s structural integrity uncompromisingly sound.

Digging may be one of the most demanding parts of your day. But the M59’s backhoe makes it rewarding by offering a host of features designed to make your work easier. This backhoe isn’t just more powerful than Kubota’s past TLBs, it also digs deeper, is more versatile and boasts a smarter design. So no matter how long you find yourself facing the M59’s backhoe, we’re sure you’ll find it time well spent.


Enclosed Hydraulic Hoses The M59’s hydraulic hoses are routed through the boom and arm for extra hose protection and durability. This feature also provides better visibility and an overall cleaner backhoe design.

Precise Inching Performance The M59 offers smooth and precise movement of the arm and boom thanks to its high performance inching valve. This feature is especially helpful when simultaneous arm and boom movements are required or when using the backhoe to “finish” jobs.

Stabilizer Guard Mounted directly over the stabilizer cylinder, this sturdy steel guard protects the cylinders from damage, preventing costly repairs.

Quick Mount Attach/Detach Featuring a four-point mount, quick attach system, the M59’s backhoe can be removed and installed easily. Stabilizer Lifting Height The M59’s powerful stabilizers provide maximum rear-tire lift, even while the engine is idling, ensuring optimum backhoe work performance.

Curved Backhoe Boom The curved boom of the M59’s backhoe serves three distinct purposes. It helps you clear dig area obstacles and easily reach maximum dig depth with a minimum trench cut. The arch of the boom also clears the sideboards of a truck, allowing you to position materials in the center.

More productive loader work equates into cost savings and time efficiencies. And nothing makes a loader more productive than capacity. The M59’s loader has a lifting capacity of an incredible 3,960 lbs. and sports an 84” bucket! It also provides a maximum height of 10.5 feet, which means it can easily empty its contents into a standard dump truck. Without a doubt, the M59 is one productive machine for its size.

LOADING Brace-less Frame The M59’s brace-less loader frame design improves visibility over the hood, to the side and when servicing the engine.

ROPS/FOPS and Protective Canopy The 4-post Rollover Protective Structure and the Falling Object Protective Structure come standard on the M59. To help keep you safe from any potential risks, a steel roof lies underneath the stylish orange canopy.

Bucket-level Indicator The bucket-level indicator rod gives the operator a clear and easy way to tell when the bucket is level. Slanted Boom Design Slanted to match the M59’s hood, the front loader boom design provides operators with a greater field of view and gives you better visibility when changing front attachments.

Round Bucket The 84” rounded bucket of the M59 offers increased durability and makes dumping sand and soil easier.

Lifting Capacity and Height With an enormous lifting capacity of 3,960 lbs., the front loader can tackle just about any job with ease. Plus, with a maximum height of 12.5 feet, to the pivot pins, this loader can easily reach as high as a standard dump truck. Together, these features make the M59 a hit on almost any construction site.

10.5 ft.

Auto-leveling Valve Thanks to this ingenious valve, the bucket angle is automatically kept level even though the angle of the boom may change. This minimizes spillage prior to dumping and makes the loader easier to operate. It’s especially useful when using pallet forks. Protected Hydraulics The hydraulic hoses run through the M59’s loader boom, offering greater hose protection and durability as well as clearer operator views.
