Kubota RTV 900 Built for Power Tool Accessories

Kubota RTV 900 Specifications

Eight complementary heavy-duty hydraulic tools are now available for the RTV900s - adding even greater usefulness and versatility to the hard-working machines. These enhancements equip the RTV900 Worksite Utility and Turf Utility models to break concrete, cut lumber and brush, prune orchards, drive posts, bore holes and perform other tough tasks.


"These rugged and innovative Kubota RTV Utility models bring a whole new level of capability to the utility-vehicle market," says Dan Muramoto, product manager for Kubota. "They leverage the RTV900's workhorse design and hydraulic capabilities to provide a convenient, reliable source of power wherever it's needed. And, the custom-designed heavy duty hydraulic implements make it easy to tackle construction, landscaping and other jobs."

Hydraulic Power and Tools to Accomplish Tough Jobs

Kubota's exclusive hydraulic utility system features a remote valve that is conveniently located at the rear of the vehicle to allow easy hookup of a variety of heavy-duty hydraulic tools. It has a five-gallon-per-minute (gpm) pump capacity as well as a dedicated hydraulic oil cooler and reservoir to keep tools running at peak performance.

Specialized to handle any job, the power sources are customized to get the work done right, including:

V6200 Breaker uses hydraulic power from RTV900 Utility models to break light concrete, asphalt or rocks
For post-hole digging and post driving, the V6260 Earth Auger bores holes up to an eight-inch diameter and 3.5-foot depth
V6230 Diamond Chainsaw is ideal for cutting concrete, brick, stone and other masonry, while the V6210 Chainsaw is designed for lumber and brush-cutting applications
Tree trimming is now easier with the V6280 Pruner and the V6220 Pole Chainsaw, which has a cutting capacity of 2.25 inches and a 12-inch bar length, respectively  
 
V6270 Post Driver comfortably drives U-channel, square and round posts as well as delineators
 
Rounding out the new hydraulic tools is the V6290 Sump Pump, with a three-inch camlock and a 250-gpm capacity for pumping liquids

Backed by Power and Performance Features

Like the RTV900 General Purpose, Recreational and Worksite models, the RTV900 Worksite Utility and Turf Utility models are powered by a 21.6-horsepower, three-cylinder, liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engine.

Another Kubota exclusive is the variable hydro transmission (VHT) that gives unmatched performance with three ranges to enable quick acceleration, solid traction, aggressive hill-climbing power and smooth downhill rides. Handling and operator comfort are further enhanced with the RTV's standard power steering, an exclusive feature among 4wd utility vehicles in its class.

Capacity and Comfort Combined

The new hydraulic capabilities of the Worksite Utility and Turf Utility models are complemented by their large cargo-hauling capacity providing incomparable versatility at construction, landscaping and other job sites.  The spacious cargo bed easily carries a 48-inch pallet weighing 1,100 pounds, with the hydraulic bed-lift system operated by a single lever. An improved tailgate design lets gate cables swivel to prevent bending and breaking.  The 7.5-inch ground clearance, long wheelbase, wide-treaded tires and reliable four- wheel wet-disc brakes all contribute to a stable, comfortable ride and contribute towards a maximum towing capacity
of 1300 lbs.

RTV900 accessories, such as steel or soft cabs, or snow blades featuring hydraulic angle adjustments, enable customization that takes operator comfort to an even higher level. "The customer who owns an RTV900 Worksite Utility or Turf Utility can start every day knowing that he has a very special machine that cleverly harnesses the power of hydraulics to handle just about any task that comes his way," says Muramoto. "This is another fine example of Kubota's relentless dedication to developing the very best products that deliver on the promise of exceptional quality, innovation and value."

Kubota T Series Specifications

Kubota Tractor Corporation markets the T-Series lawn tractors, featuring increased performance, innovative sleek design, superior comfort, and the lowest price for a premium lawn tractor.

For performance, Kubota’s T-Series overhead valve (OHV) gasoline engines power the four new models. The T1570 and T1670 come with 15 HP engines, while the T1770, and T1870 come with 17 HP and 18 HP V-Twin engines respectively. K series engine design minimizes noise and vibration, offering the operator increased comfort and less fatigue.

Work is easier with a clutchless hydrostatic transmission (HST) and light responsive steering. A single pedal controls speed and directional changes. This allows the operator to keep their hands on the steering wheel for precise steering, helpful in tight spaces.

Mid-mount mower decks with contoured deep deck designs give powerful two-blade cutting action on the 40” deck, or three-blade action on the 44” and 48” decks.

The mower deck’s levers are gas spring assisted for easier deck lift and lowering. Mowing operations are further enhanced with a simple dial-type cutting adjustment, which adjusts in one inch increments from 1-4 inches.

The operator is assured of a smooth comfortable ride with Kubota’s “Cushion Ride” suspension system and an easy to adjust deluxe high-back seat. A full-flat operator’s deck with increased floor space provides ample legroom and easier tractor entry and exit.

Optional equipment and attachments include cruise control, a 6.5-bushel capacity grass catcher, a 38" snow blower, and a blade.

Whether an operator’s need is to push heavy snow, or mow dense, thick grass, Kubota’s new T-Series premium lawn tractors will fulfill their needs with increased power, performance, and comfort.

In addition to the T-series, Kubota Tractor Corporation markets a complete line of tractors up to 103 PTO horsepower, along with a line of performance-matched implements, construction equipment, consumer lawn and garden equipment, commercial turf products and utility vehicles.

Kubota RTV 1140 Specifications

    TORRANCE, Calif. (April 14, 2009) - Kubota adds a transformable four-passenger model to its popular 4-wheel drive utility vehicle lineup with the new RTV1140CPX. This innovative RTV features a transformation system that quickly converts from one-to-two-row seating options, allowing the operator to choose between additional passenger capacity or best-in-class cargo space, depending on the task at hand.  The innovative rail system is mounted on the OSHA-compliant roll-over protection structure (ROPS) to allow easy and seamless transitions when converting from the one- to-two row seating options.

"The RTV1140CPX provides exceptional comfort and safety accommodating four adults, as well as unmatched cargo configurations, capacity and convenience,” says Dan Muramoto, product manager for Kubota.  “The RTV1140CPX is much anticipated and has exceptionally broad appeal, from ranchers and farmers to property owners, facility managers and outdoorsmen; this new utility vehicle is a unique solution for a wide variety of applications."

Additional Seating and Cargo Space: The Best of Both Worlds

When additional cargo space is needed, operators simply follow the three-step conversion:

  • Unlatch cargo screen, slide forward and secure
  • Flip up the rear seat and open front-quarter cargo box sides
  • Unlatch front wall of cargo box, flip into place and secure

More Options, Reliable Kubota Power
