Kubota Tractor Corporation announced today that it will enter the U.S. hay
tools and spreaders market in 2014 with an all-new line of Kubota Hay Tools
and Spreaders. The new machinery further expands Kubota's strength in the U.S.
agricultural market, and will allow its dealers to serve as a one-stop
destination for Kubota tractors, hay implements and spreaders. Shown here are
the new Kubota side-mounted disc mower with a fully-welded cutterbar and
counter-rotating three-bladed discs; and the new Kubota tedder, with a working
width of 17'1". Specifically developed for the North American market, these
products will be available at authorized Kubota dealerships in early 2014.

The new implements will be produced by Kverneland Group, a leading
international company that develops, produces and distributes agriculture
machinery. Kubota Corporation completed a full-ownership acquisition of
Kverneland Group in May 2012, including its factories located in Norway,
Demark, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Italy, Russia and China. The
Kverneland Group brings to Kubota 134 years of experience in successfully
developing and producing implements.

“Kubota’s acquisition of Kverneland strengthens our global product portfolio
while providing an opportunity for our U.S. dealers to expand their offerings
to serve the needs of our haymaking customers,” said Todd Stucke, Vice
President, Kubota Agriculture & Turf Division. “These tools – carrying the
well-recognized and deeply trusted Kubota name – are first in a series of
product developments underway that will allow us to realize our agriculture
growth strategy in the United States.”

Kubota unveiled the new implements at the Kubota National Dealer Meeting in
Memphis, Tenn., earlier this month. The first phase of implements will be
available at Kubota dealerships in early 2014 and will include five disc
mowers, ranging from 5’6” to 10’5”; a rotary rake and tedder, with a working
width of 13’9” and 17’1” respectively; and pendulum spreaders, with capacities
ranging from 7.8 to 47.7ft^3.
