Some SHIBAURA Tractor Operator Manuals & Service Manual PDF are above the page - ST, CM, SD series.
Machine-building company Shibaura began its activity in the middle of the last century. It was a joint product of two giants of the Japanese industry - Toshiba and IHI.
Originally it was specialized in the production of diesel engines. Since the beginning of the sixties, the company has started producing universal tractors of average power - up to forty horsepower.
In the late seventies, she began the production of the most powerful tractor in the model line, the power of which was 50 hp.
Currently, Shibaura is part of IHI, Japan's leading engineering company, manufacturing aircraft, jet engines, marine vessels, power plants and other engineering products.
Its production is deployed in four factories. All of them are located in Japan.
Therefore Shibaura compact tractors are real Japanese, in which all the details, even the smallest nut, are the height of technical perfection.
The company produces tractors of a wide power range - from 21 to 51 hp. All of them are equipped with 4-stroke diesel engines with water cooling. These are all-wheel drive tractors with a classic wheel size differentiation on the rear and front axle.
All models of tractors are equipped with automatic (hydrostatic) transmission. They have two power take-off shafts, one located classically - at the rear, the second, depending on the model, in front or on the side. Hydraulic suspension can be installed both front and rear.
The presence of a power take-off shaft and two independent hydraulic suspensions allow the tractor to be assembled with any agricultural and communal tools. For example, with segment-finger mowers, sweeping brushes, bulldozers and hydraulic loaders.
The classic layout, high ground clearance, the possibility of differential lock, allow these tractors to perform a very wide range of work. They can be used both in agriculture and for performing public works. They have a very small turning radius, which allows using this tractor in shallow-contour fields or for public works in the courtyards of municipalities.
Great attention is paid to the designers of the ergonomics of the workplace and the safety of using this technique. All tractors are equipped with seats with floating independent suspension, belts and safety arcs. They are all equipped with power steering.
