Kubota introduced a new addition to its popular RTV-X Series line. The new RTV-X1140, featuring an innovative Kubota K-Vertible cargo conversion system, transforms the vehicle with minimal effort and time from two passengers and a large cargo bed to four passengers and a cargo bed. Kubota continues to set the standard for ruggedness and reliability.
The RTV-X1140 has a unique ROPS design that makes it easy to convert from crew to cargo. Kubota offers industry-leading cargo capacity and comfortable seating for four adults in three simple steps – when you need to move your crew, swing in the cargo bed sides, fold the bed up, and flip down the rear seat – conversion is quickly and easily performed by just one person.
The new five-point ROPS design increases RTV-X1140’s legendary workhorse characteristics allowing for more cargo volume and side loading. The RTV-X1140 also comes standard with hydraulic dump bed with 0.28 cubic metres/0.54 cubic metre capacity, two-seat and four-seat configuration, respectively.
Power When and Where Needed
The Kubota liquid-cooled diesel engine on the RTV-X1140 delivers a powerful 24.8 horsepower and is work-proven for dependable performance even in the harshest terrains.
With convenient tilt steering and simple inline shifting, the RTV-X1140 has a Variable Hydraulic Transmission that offers a wide torque band and large oil cooler that boost’s performance and durability.
Front and rear independent suspension on all four wheels ensures a truly exceptional ride enhancing drivability and handling in most off-road conditions. And Kubota raised the bar on ground clearance with the new RTV-X1140, offering a full 275mm of suspension travel with the ability to glide over bumps and rugged terrain.
A New Level of Driving Comfort
The RTV-X1140 offers a variety of standard and optional features to enhance productivity and operator comfort. Driving comfort comes standard with an ergonomically-designed, split-bench style seat designed to provide hours of smooth riding.
With sophisticated technology and easy-to-operate features, the RTV-X1140 offers a digital meter cluster with bright, easy-to-read indicators to keep the operator informed of critical driving conditions, including speed, hours, and kilometres travelled.
Secure lockable storage is king with a large glove box on the passenger side and under-seat storage compartments beneath the split-bench seats to provide convenient storage space for tools, tie-downs, and personal items.
The RTV-X1140 debuted at the Australasian Dealer Conference in Sydney in September and will start arriving in March 2017 to Kubota dealers nationwide.
