Kubota’s RTV-X900 boasts the same rugged build qualities and superior reliability of the original RTV900, but now with a host of new features and benefits, all designed to meet the evolving demands of the market.
The RTV-X900 is fitted with a robust and powerful 21.6HP, 3-cylinder liquid cooled diesel engine, ensuring dependable performance in even the most challenging weather conditions or terrain. Variable hydraulic transmission has been improved, too, with a new advanced VHT-X, which offers a wider torque band and large coolers to boost performance and durability.
Kubota’s unique dynamic braking, which provides additional braking power and greater driving control on descents, remains a key feature of the range, whilst the new model is fitted as standard with a high rigidity frame, which helps to isolate passengers from noise and vibrations whilst also ensuring the machine is durable enough to carry heavier loads. Limited-slip front differential and locking rear differential brakes help reduce wheel spin, allowing greater control in wet conditions.
The X-Series utility vehicle raises the bar on ground clearance too, thanks to an impressive 10.4” travel height, allowing the vehicle to glide over lumps and bumps. Height adjustable front and rear suspension also ensures the correct vehicle height, depending on load, allowing for a safe and comfortable ride no matter how heavy the load. The fully independent suspension system offers incredible ride comfort and quality.
Kubota is also be promoting its newly improved Kubota Finance package, which is designed to offer customers a host of purchasing options and make year-round buying more straightforward for customers. Finance options are available across Kubota’s full product range.
