    Default Kubota M Series mechanical fan to electric fan

    Has anyone changed the Mechanical fan on any of the Larger M series kubota to a electric fan, I have a M135X and was wondering if anyone has done this or knows how to do it

    You might check with 5030, he's done some work on his, but it may not be what you're looking for.

    Thanks but im looking to change to electric which cools the tractor better and gives you a minimum of 5 extra horsepower just curious if anyone has done it and how is it, or if they know where to get an electric fan and how to place a new one in

    That 5HP is a BS myth! The reason why they DO NOT put electric fans on tractors is because the mechanical fans are more reliable.


    If you need more HP, trade up.

    If you want better cooling, put a Cleanfix reversible fan on it.

    Just saying!

    It would take a big electric fan to cool it, if you could even find one to do the job. If you ran a big fan that thing could pull 20 amps or more. I doubt you would notice any hp difference either. Your best off with what you have.

    Please post back after you buy/install the fan. I have serious doubts about all the fuel savings that the website states.
