LPG Power for Kubota RTV500

At a time when diesel powered vehicles are becoming less acceptable Euromec launches an LPG fuel option for the Kubota RTV500 utility vehicle. For vehicles used in schools, factories and universities, LPG offers clean power without the downtime and cost associated with electric power and batteries.

Customer Driven DevelopmentKubota RTV500 with LPG power

The Euromec LPG powered RTV is the result of development driven by customer demand. Under the front bonnet is a refillable LPG tank, plumbed and wired into the vehicle’s main systems. On the dashboard, controls tell the operator how much fuel is available; the RTV can be switched to petrol if LPG is not available. Refilling the LPG tank is easy using the nozzle mounted just under the front bumper.

Gas Bottle Option

Apart from using the refillable LPG tank the RTV can also use LPG from a bottle. In the front right-hand corner of the load area a simple bottle mount and fuel line make fitting and changing a gas bottle simple.

Better Running Costs, Whole Life Costs and Cold Weather Performance

When considering a clean fuel utility vehicle, battery power is often the only choice. However, this LPG option offers better running costs, whole life costs and cold weather performance. It has the added benefit of 100% availability as it does not need recharging.

Operators also benefit from the LPG choice; cab heaters are available and much more effective, more power means gritters, pressure washers and attachments work harder for longer.

Kubota RTV500 Warranty

This carefully engineered LPG fuel option for the Kubota RTV500 is unique and only available from Euromec. It does not infringe the Kubota product warranty.

Burghley Horse Trials Round-up

img_2137
After a seriously busy 2016 Burghley Horse trials we thought we would round-up what happened during our time there.

We had our regular spot and early Thursday morning bang – off we went. Great weather brought out the crowds and everyone was in a festive spirit eagerly awaiting the start of the main event. Numerous contacts made on our stand with machines being sold from the off.

Sold this smart Kubota RTV400 on Saturday

Friday was fine and hot. Many of our loyal customers chose to visit and place orders, great news and thank you. Saturday much the same but rain!  “Our man” Andrew Hoy went into the lead of the event after his cross country round, sadly didn’t last but well done Andrew. Equestrian people are not put off by a little rain and things were still real busy.

Sunday, the last day, was very busy. Great crowd saw a pulsating show jumping competition and we were rushed off our feet. Andrew finished 20th making three Aussies in the top 20! After four days we packed-up and went home tired but very content. A great event, lots of new friends and not so many machines to bring back! Perfect.

British Manufacturing Success Story

We designed, developed and now manufacture a unique washing and scrubbing head for use on compact road and pavement sweepers.

The head was originally conceived around ten years ago. Around this time Councils and cleaning contractors became increasingly concerned about the heavily contaminated water produced during street cleaning going straight into the drains. We knew from our experience providing industrial scrubber driers that using similar technology for street and pavement cleaning would solve this problem.

Our scrubber head is the result and now sells all over the world. Not only do we sell it fitted to our compact road scrubber drier, but it is also sold to other companies selling similar machines. As you can see in the video below it does a great job that no other machine can match.

The story here is simple. At the 2016 Canadian GP meeting a competing car had its gearbox break and deposit all its oil in the pit lane. This was obviously unacceptable so a local cleaning contractor used a machine fitted with one of our head and squeegee kits, built in Market Harborough, to wash the pit lane and collect the waste water and oil. Note the clean line across the white road sector, it’s even cleaner than the surrounding pavement.

British ingenuity and engineering skill at work, brilliant.

RTV With Serious Cleaning Capability

Kubota RTV500 with on-board jet washer

Delivered today to the Bushey Jewish Cemetery, having been specially modified for their application, is this customised Kubota RTV500.  A large water bowser is hooked-up to a front mounted, handheld jet washer with a heavy duty hose. Providing the water pressure is an auxiliary Honda motor connected to a pump, all mounted at the rear on a custom load-bed. Having been thoroughly tested and trialled by the client this is the first of many machines that will be provided over the next months.
