Kubota is a worldwide brand focusing on helping farmers get the job done the first time correctly. To that end, Kubota offers a range of accessories for their tractors. In this blog, we go over many of the options for farmers and landowners in North Georgia. So, what’s on your chore list?
Rotary Cutters by Land-Pride
Built for Kubota by Land-Pride, rotary cutters keep the grass in check. Four options differ by weight and width, with the narrowest being 42″ and the widest being 60″. Each connects via a 3-point system. If you have a lot of mowing for lawn or field, manicuring a rotary cutter is a good option. When your chore list includes:
- Rural acreage
- Open spaces
- Row crops
- Roadside maintenance
- General farm maintenance
A three-point rear attaching rotary cutter is the tool for the job. Size options and mower options such as baggers and mulchers for the 60″ unit allow you to customize the mower to your specific chore or application. Any of the Nelson Sale team members can help you fit the right mower to your tractor.
Available in 60″ or 72″ and built by Kubota for larger mowing chores. These mowers feature an easy-mount system. The benefit of a mid-mount mower is that it does not add length to the tractor. Other benefits include:
- Easy tracking for mowing as you sit above the mower vs. towing a finish or rotary mower, which adds length to the tractor.
- You enjoy easy mowing for jobs next to objects, such as trees. A rotary mower does not track close during turning, making it harder to mow around objects.
- You enjoy easy mount and dismount for attaching the mower to your tractor.
- It does not require front weighting as some rear-attach mowers will.
The Downside of a Mid-mount mower is that it requires a mid-point PTO, which may or may not be installed on your tractor. Points to consider:
- Mid-mount mowers are not significant assets if you need to mow under smaller objects, such as smaller trees and Shrubs. With a rear-attached rotary mower, you can back the mower up under the object to mow.
- Maintenance is just a little more complex with a mid-mount mower unless you remove it.
Disk Harrows are one of the first tools you use to break land. They have a wide application for:
- Farms of all sizes
- Food plots, market gardens, and sustainable food production
- Arenas – Horse, livestock, etc.
Disc Harrows for Kubota are a land-pride brand and designed to elevate the functionality of your tractor. From the start of a project to seasonal repair or maintenance of fields, gardens, and outdoor living, a disk harrow makes getting chores done efficient and straightforward.
Kubota drag harrows are a perfect tool to add the finishing touches to horse arenas and even sports fields, golf courses, and new lawn installations. Land-pride drag harrows are available in lightweights from 89 pounds to 185-pounds and in widths 48, 72, 96 inches, giving you plenty of options to add a tool that fits your needs.
Box scrapers are a versatile tool. For Kubota, they range in width and weight, giving you a lot of room for custom applications. If your chore list includes road building or maintenance, then a box scraper is on your buy-list.
Kubota makes these in the 277 – 500 pound range for residential tractors and more significant for full-size tractors. They also range in width from 44-66.”
Rotary tillers are the step-two tool for soil preparation. They follow disking giving finer tillage to many farming and landscaping applications, which include:
- Residential landscaping – lawn installation, weed abatement, etc.
- Gardening – Soil preparation for direct grow and market gardens
- Nurseries – Soil preparation for forest installation and bare-root applications
- Farms – Small field management and preparation for grain and hay planting, etc.
- Municipalities – Weed abatement, etc.

Available in a range of sizes, making it easier to find the tool that fits your projects. These range from 100 pounds to 350 pounds and in widths from 48-96 inches. A step-three tool for agriculture, even on a small scale. Landscape rakes help prepare the soil for direct sowing seeds or planting seedlings. In addition, they are handy for spreading material, such as manure or even rocks, and collecting leaves and other debris in the fall.
Grading scrapers are a step-one or step-two tool for road maintenance and site preparation. They are available in 48 or 60-inch widths and weights that range between 310-437 pounds. All three options are 3-point attachments that make removing potholes painless and help break soil before disking or box scraping.
A cross-over tool that gives you options for a variety of applications. You can use a rear blade to remove snow, backfill, smooth, and more. They are lovely in feedlots for cleaning, but they shine when you need to do finishing work on freshly plowed dirt. You could use them on roads and arenas to create that smooth finish that is safe for riding, driving, and more.

Post Hole Diggers
Posthole diggers make fence installation so much easier, but that is not all they do. They are excellent for nursery applications and landscaping when you need to plant trees and shrubs. A post hole digging attachment applies to farming, home and commercial landscaping, contractors, and other industries.
Posthole diggers are mostly 3-point attachments, but there are some Quick Access Universal loader options too.

Forklift attachments are a necessity on farms, orchards, and for anyone who has livestock.
Front Mount Kubota Tractor Sweeper Attachment
The front mount brooms make it easy to add finishing touches to cleaning and yard maintenance. For example, use them to remove fall leaves, dethatch lawns, and clean up small aggregate, including gravel.
