Kubota’s new RTV’s are brilliantly popular; users love the nippy go anywhere performance and owners love the rugged build and metronomic reliability. We sell them to farmers wanting a small utility vehicle to fetch and carry, estate owners that want a way of getting around quickly and to companies for general transport and maintenance tasks.
One of the attractions of the Kubota RTV range is its high quality cab and interior. Users adapt quickly to the control layout and driving position, both being very similar to their car. Also, having wide door openings enables the driver to hop in and out easily as required.
Recently one of our customers wanted an RTV with a weatherproof cab as in their application the driver would be in the cab at night and for long periods. This meant doors had to be added. RTV doors are not an option from Kubota, so we designed and built the doors.
Kubota RTV Doors
Glazed and weatherproof, they not only seal the cab but also provide unimpeded views with both high level and low level windows. Lockable and hinged they can be retrofitted to existing RTV400 and 500 models as well as specified on a new machine.
Together with Kubota we have organised a unique off-road driving experience at RockinghamCastle on the 14th November 2013. Featuring the whole range of the excellent Kubota RTVs this event is open to invited guests only so if you would like to come you need to let us know as soon as possible by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The object of the day is simple; we want to give all our guests the opportunity of driving at least one if not all four RTVs around the infamous Land Rover Experience track at RockinghamCastle.
Renown for its slippery slopes, deep gullies and adverse cambers this course will test the abilities of even the most experienced driver and will graphically illustrate the go-anywhere, cross-anything qualities of the RTV. There will be instructors there all day to ensure that everyone is safe and they will be happy to give one-to-one driving advice, time allowing.
Refreshments will be available all day together with a hot buffet. Proceedings start around 11.00 and will go on until around 4.00pm.
This unique experience is for invited guests only and numbers are limited, so email annie as soon as you can if you are interested in attending.
If you consider that £70 million worth of plant and agricultural equipment is stolen every year with 95% never being recovered it’s clear that agricultural machinery tracking is vitally important to protect your assets.
We have teamed with TRACKER and now offer specially designed tracking products for agricultural machinery and will fit tracking devices to customers machines prior to delivery when required. This simple and cost effective step can reduce your insurance premiums by up to 25% and significantly increases the chance of your getting your plant back if you are unlucky enough to be the victim of theft.
Farm equipment tracking allows you to receive alerts when vehicles or machinery is removed from your premises. This means you can alert the authorities more quickly giving them a head start in recovering your equipment. This gets you back to work faster and minimises disruption and loss of earnings, especially at crucial periods like harvest.
As a leading distributor of Kubota tractors and commercial mowers we see this as a great additional service we are offering our customers. Our partnership with Tracker will be officially unveiled at Burghley Horse Trials, the first weekend of September. Additional information is available on our website in the Kubota section.
Recently we were doing some publicity shots for the Kubota RTV range we sell and this was one of the shots we got.
No It Didn’t
Despite what it looks like the RTV just carried on regardless of the deeper than anticipated rut. At the time it didn’t seem that dramatic but as the picture shows the water nearly covered the rear wheel and the RTV was pitched at a remarkable lean angle. Nicky, the driver seems quite calm too so all in a day’s work then! What a brilliant illustration of the capability of these machines.
The range of Kubota RTVs has been expanded so we are selling even more of these tough, versatile machines. If you want to know more then visit our website. We are presently adding some videos shot during the day so look out for more hills, ruts and muddy action, coming soon to a computer screen near you.
Whenever a totally new model comes along there is always a great deal of anticipation and excitement and the new Kubota RTVs are no exception. And now they’re here!
Four Wheel Drive
Small, light and agile the new Kubota RTV400 and RTV500 deliver exceptional performance and reliability in a compact size. Both machines have four wheel drive with selectable two wheel drive and differential lock plus disc brakes and independent suspension.
Different Strokes for Different Folks
Where the new machines differ is their engines and transmissions. One has a single cylinder air cooled motor, the other a twin cylinder water cooled motor. Both have fuel injection. The single cylinder motor is paired with continuously variable transmission (CVT) and an inertia clutch. The other machine has variable hydro transmission (VHT).
Comfortable and Safe
Whichever model you choose you can be assured of Kubota’s renown reliability, a comfortable cabin and standard rollover protection. You can specify either orange or camouflage paintwork and front guards to make your RTV match your needs precisely.
So new they are not on our website yet, so if you want to see one of these exciting machines in the metal then call us and we’ll arrange for it to happen.
