 Standard Features:
E-TVCS Diesel Engine
  This 59 horsepower, 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)
  Out 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.  
Full Flat Deck
  Our full-flat deck gives you ample legroom. This makes operation more comfortable and mounting and dismounting the tractor easy. Additionally, this deck substantially reduces vibration and driver fatigue through the use of rubber mounts.  
Walk-Through Step
  The M59 features a generous area to the side of the operator’s seat, which make it easy to walk to your seat when performing backhoe work. The seat itself pivots on the spot so you never have to dismount or climb over it.  
IntelliPanel™
  Recognized for its superb reliability and usability, Kubota’s state-of-the-art, diagnostic IntelliPanel™ provides you with comprehensive tractor feedback. With easy-to-read indicators, displays and sensor messages, you can clearly view information about the M59’s current working status, engine, fuel and oil warning signals, as well as maintenance indications.  
Side-Position Display
  The digital panel’s side positioning provides information at a glance for faster and safer operation when working with either the loader or backhoe.  
Arm Rest
  The M59’s arm rest helps reduce arm movement and operator fatigue, especially when performing loader work.  
3-Point Hitch Storage
  When the backhoe is mounted, this storage area provides a convenient and easily-accessible place to store the optional Category I and II 3-point hitch linkage.  
Remote Hydraulic Control Valves
  The M59 offers three optional remote hydraulic control valves for a greater selection of hydraulically powered implements. For operators, this versatile system translates into a convenient and cost-efficient solution.  
Independent PTO
  The hydraulic-independent, 540 rpm PTO expands the use of the M59 to include rear-mounted, PTO-driven implements such as rotary tillers, post hole diggers, snow blowers and rear-mount mowers.
