New Zealand Best-Selling Diesel Utility Vehicle Just Got Even Better
Kubota has introduced its all-new RTV X-Series, the next generation line-up of work utility vehicles re-engineered and Kubota-built from the ground up. With a superior ride and unmatched terrain handling ability, Kubota's new RTV X-Series delivers a whole new level of exceptional styling, operator comfort, durability and workhorse capability.
Kubota's powerful new line-up includes the RTV-X900, a comfortable and versatile model for a wide variety of jobs; the RTV-X1120D, a deluxe model that steps up in power and amenities; and the RTV-X1100C, which offers a best-in-class factory-installed, fully-enclosed unibody cab with a powerful heating and air conditioning system.
"The new Kubota X-Series is the perfect combination of beauty and brawn," said Shaun Monteith, Kubota product manager. "We have raised the bar on styling, ergonomics, comfort and storage without giving up the durability, ruggedness and reliability that Kubota utility vehicles are known for. We've taken a huge leap with feature enhancements for this line, and the powertrain componentry, fit and finish, and quality of materials are arguably best-in-class."
Kubota RTV X-series delivers incomparable performance and operator experience
Beyond the enhanced styling and ergonomics, the muscle in the machine is fuelled by Kubota-built diesel engines and Variable Hydraulic Transmissions (VHT-X), a powertrain combination that has garnered a worldwide reputation for dependable performance. In fact, Kubota has more experience in VHTs than any other utility vehicle manufacturer.
Kubota RTV-X900 - The RTV-X900 is equipped with a powerful 21.6 horsepower diesel engine, standard 4wd and standard hydraulic power steering for exceptional comfort and control. The two-speed in-line shift allows the operator to maintain better control and shift less often, with two forward speeds - high and low - as well as neutral and reverse. The steel-structured frame insulates the operator from outside noise and vibrations, and front and rear independent suspension offers a smoother, more enjoyable ride even on rough terrain or when carrying heavy cargo.
Kubota RTV-X1120D - From its proven 24.8 horsepower diesel engine and higher ground speed of up to 46.4 km/hr to its blue-tinted halogen headlights and attention-grabbing polished alloy wheels, the RTV-X1120D is Kubota's new deluxe model that offers a step up in power, comfort and style. The responsive hydrostatic power steering offers more personalized comfort with a tilt-feature.
Kubota RTV-X1100C - Completing the line-up is the all-weather RTV-X1100C, offering a quiet, factory-installed, fully-enclosed unibody cab that features a powerful heating and air conditioning system. The lightweight unit has two large roll-down windows, is nearly airtight, low noise and is virtually rattle-free for a smoother, quieter ride that raises the bar on comfort, convenience and performance. The X1100C is also pre-wired with an antenna and two speakers for easy and efficient installation of an optional radio. Engineered for safety, the X1100C cab, as well as all other RTV X-series models, meets SAE J2194 and OSHA 1928 ROPS standards.
Kubota's new line of RTVs is engineered with power and comfort in mind to provide versatile work solutions for a wide range of operator needs. The Kubota RTV-X900 and X1100C replace the RTV900XT and the RTV1100, respectively, and the RTV X1120D is an incremental new model. Kubota will continue to offer the RTV400, RTV500 and RTV1140CPX in 2015.
