OPICO has further expanded its range of tailor-made front linkages for Kubota tractors with a new linkage for the M5740 series. It has a lift capacity of 1.5t, and is available with or without front PTO.
As with all OPICO linkage ranges, the new Kubota front linkage has a heavy duty PTO gearbox with its own oil supply, and an electro-hydraulic 'soft-start' clutch to prevent 'snatching' when the PTO is engaged.
An eccentric pin design gives a choice of three link arm working positions - fixed, semi-floating and fully floating - so the linkage can be set appropriately for the job. For attaching a front press, the fully-floating position allows the contours of the ground to be followed, whilst for a front weight block, putting the link arms into a fixed position prevents it bouncing around.
The OPICO front linkage includes a vertical fold system in which the arms fold back vertically and very close to the tractor when not in use, giving added manoeuvrability and safety.
The bespoke design of OPICO front linkages gives extra strength to the linkage and its simplicity means that there are fewer wearing parts than on other makes of linkage.
The price of the 1.5t linkage for the Kubota M5740 tractor series is £2,324, or £5,325 with PTO. Typical delivery time when ordered through OPICO is less than 3 weeks from order placement. A fitting service is available costing from £250 to £550.
