HYUNDAI: IT’S THE STEEL!
We’re going to kick this off with a direct quote from Hyundai’s own product literature, a fun little item that caught our eye right off the bat:
Hyundai construction equipment is manufactured with the highest grade of steel due to Hyundai’s dominance in the steel and shipbuilding industries. Rigid cycle testing, heat testing, vibration testing and shock load testing is conducted in the design and manufacturing process of all new models insuring optimum durability and reliability.
For those of us here at Fully Equipped that sentence says a ton and suggests even more. Actually, several tons: at 29,321 lbs., we get 14.66 tons, on our calculator. And, as you can see from the picture, all that steel has been forged with purpose. At Hyundai, great steel means great mettle — and great versatility as well!Continue reading
PAVE YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS WITH HYUNDAI

Will it Mulch? With the FECON BULL HOG, the answer is YES.
If you’re thinking about blazing a trail, widening a road, or clearing a bramble-clogged path or roadside, you’ll want to grab a cup of coffee and watch this video of Martin Implement customer Bart Gilliam. Bart keeps the city of Matteson well-groomed and used a dynamic duo you can rent from Martin Implement: the FECON BULL HOG (FMX50), paired with the Kubota KX080 Excavator. Power and versatility from Kubota, combined with a rugged FECON attachment designed to do exactly this kind of job. The end result is poetry in motion…
WARNING: several saplings meet their maker in this graphic video!!
If you’re wondering if you could use the BULL HOG to wrassle that stump or make mincemeat of the brush pile outback, Bart has a few words for you: Continue reading
ONE TRACTOR TO RULE ALL THE WORK SITES
When you need a utility tractor that can tackle a variety of worksite conditions, consider the Kubota MX5200 Series. Upgrades have been made to four distinct ‘realms’ of performance, so these tractors are able to handle a host of challenging applications.
REALM ONE: MORE POWERFUL, CLEANER ENGINES
The MX5200 utility tractors feature 54.7 horsepower engines —big power and a great value for this tractor size. Gear-drive models come in either 2WD or 4WD. New MX Series hydrostatic transmissions (HST) are available in 4WD… these offer increased pedal responsiveness and decreased pedal pressure. See that you use that power wisely!
The improved HST transmission means better control and smoother performance, regardless of load size. And HST reduces shock, vibration, and fatigue — for greater tractor performance and enhanced operator comfort. Upgrades to the engine include environmental improvements too. The Common Rail System (CRS) and Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) comply with recent EPA Tier 4 regs, to assure a clean machine. No doubt, cleaner emissions and better fuel economy are a big win for all realms!
REALM TWO: BETTER COMFORT!
It’s easy to get to work (and to keep working) when you’re more comfortable. Which is why you’ll enjoy the Kubota MX5200’s operator appointments. First, it’s roomy: with a full 30” between fenders. The deck is easy to mount, and hanging pedals offer optimal legroom. Of course, it also has the all-important cup-holder, to make sure your cool (or hot) beverage is always within easy reach. The new high-back suspension seat offers more comfort, especially on those long days in the field or on the job site. The dash panel has also been redesigned, with large gauges and a well-lit LCD panel that’s easy to see — even at night.
REALM THREE: EASIER TO OPERATE
Getting from work site to work site has never been easier either. Both the 2WD and 4WD models are equipped with smoother, hydrostatic power steering for easy turns. Combined with the MX5200’s excellent turning radius, maneuvering in tight spots is a cinch. And the HST models have the brake pedals on the left side — easy to handle, and it will help you make smoother turns. The new PTO switch is also much easier to use, too. It’s conveniently positioned on the right-side console. Simply push and turn to start —and just one push will stop the PTO. When you need extra power, you can throttle up easily with the handy lever next to the steering wheel.
REALM FOUR: IMPROVED ALL-AROUND FUNCTIONALITY
General use and access has also been upgraded on the Kubota MX5200 utility tractors. New halogen headlights offer more power and much better visibility. And the hood is newly designed —it has a sleek-looking, slanted shape; strong, one-piece steel construction; and offers easy, full-opening with hydraulic dampers. Routine service access is faster and more efficient. Access improvements also include an easier-to-reach radiator screen, air filter, battery, and coolant recovery tray —making these maintenance tasks a breeze. The new fuel tank is larger too: 13.5-gallon capacity means fewer fill-ups and longer running time.
ROADS GO EVER ON…AND SO DO KUBOTA TRACTORS!
Altogether, the upgrades to the Kubota MX5200 Series create an exceptional utility tractor for a wide variety of jobs. If you want to add a front loader — the Kubota LA1065 is performance matched to this model. Skid steer style attachments will fit to give you a do-all machine that will take you into whole new realms of versatility and efficiency.
Here’s our video, which gives you a nice overview of the new design. If you’ve got any questions, or want to hear more about these tractors, please give us a call or stop by one of our Martin Implement realms….uh…locations!
