No, but they look very capable.

Kubota M7040, MX5100, L4300, B7800. JD 790
I almost bought one. It's heavier than you would think for a Kubota, has strong castings and seems to be suitable as a utility tractor with a loader, a hay baler and medium sized tillage tractor. Seems like it would do well on a dairy farm or dairy with lots of hay and limited tillage application.

But why the big front wheels?

As I recall, the rear were 18.4-34 and the front 12.4-24. That's not big but rather an accepted tire pattern for that HP tractor. I suppose factory options you give you a larger tire size but it would still have to be somewhat similar to the sizes I mentioned. Do you see a different size tire/wheel?

I have a M126. Looked at M96, M110 and decided to go bigger. The M96 has a small displacement engine. Once you jump to the 126, you get a 6.1L diesel. M96 is almost as big and heavy and only 3.8L.
Nice tractor though.

We have three M96 mudders on the lot right now. I'll try to take some pics tomorrow. I'm working on a M108S and a M105X right now. Oh yeah and a M9540.
