Average Weight (kg) of a Farm Tractor (11 examples)

We found that Kubota, John Deere, and New Holland are some of the top brands that create the best utility tractors in the industry. When we were buying our first farm tractor, the weight of the farm tractor was one factor for us when making the decision on which type of farm tractor to purchase.

Weight of a farm tractor contributes to workload capabilities. So could likely give us that extra power when we needed it.

So we investigated 11 different models and brands of utility tractors (some with 2 or 3 different styles) to see what the average weight was.

Most standard utility farm tractors, with a horsepower between 52 and 75 will weight, on average, 2,388 kilograms. As the value of horsepower increased, so did the overall weight of the tractor. Type of tires, ballasting, enclosed or non-enclosed cab, full fuel tank or empty, can also effect the weight of a tractor.

As with anything you buy in life, farm tractors come in a variety of shapes, weights, horsepower, and widths. You can generally count on them being around 2,388 kilograms in weight, but there’s a bit of variety from one model to the next. Below I’ve gathered 11 examples of utility tractors to compare their weights and other basic measurements.

1. Kubota MX5000 (2002 – 2008 Series)

  • Weight: 1,489 kg to 1,650 kg
  • Horsepower: 52.2 hp
  • Wheelbase: 71.6″ (2WD) or 71.1″ (4WD)

The Kubota MX5000 is listed as an intermediate model between the series L and series M. If you are looking for something bigger, the next model up is the Kubota MX5100.

This model comes in two options – 2WD or 4WD.

It is also slightly less expensive than the Kubota M4900 and has a more basic transmission and hydraulic system.

Kubota’s M Series feet is very large. The M Series is mostly marketed towards the farming community. A great and versatile option for hobby farmers and small farmers that require some pulling power.

The John Deere 5000 Utility Tractor fleet is favored by small farmers and hobby farmers. The 5000 Series fleet are big enough and powerful enough to do the tough jobs but not so large that they are cost prohibitive to the farmer.

The John Deere 5075E comes with 75 hp, some reviews say it doesn’t feel “meaty” enough for 75 hp so might need to do additional research on it. Better yet, take it for a test drive and test the front loader system.

It has a roomy cab with great visibility.

The Smaller models include the John Deere 5065E, while if you are looking for something that is bit bigger, you should check out the John Deere 5083E or the John Deere 5093E.
