Event:Cereals Event
Date:9 and 10 June 2010
Exhibiting:Journalists are invited to the Kubota stand where they will be able to see a comprehensive range of agricultural equipment including the M40 and M Series tractors and the RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.

Visitors to the Cereals Event who are looking for powerful, affordable, productive and economical agricultural machines, should make sure that a visit to Kubota’s extensive stand, 905, is top of their list.

The world-leading manufacturer will be showcasing a full line-up from its range of agricultural tractors at the event, including the M Series tractors and the RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.

The highlight of the exhibition will be the newly unveiled M130X tractor. This flagship 130hp model is the largest in the Kubota range and has been designed to offer a real alternative to both 'expensive' and 'economy' tractors. It features a four-cylinder engine, electronic fuelling and engine governing, as well as Intelli-Shift 16 Speed transmission with eight-speed powershift and auto field/road modes. This can be enhanced with the new LA2253 loader, which has a lifting capacity of 2.1 tonnes to a maximum height of 4.1m.

This will be complemented by the other two models in the M Series range, the 108hp M108S and the 128hp M128X. These powerful and lightweight machines are extremely versatile and have been designed to tackle the most demanding jobs with ease. They are reliable and durable giving year-in year-out of cost-effective service.

Also on display will be the M40 Series, which consists of four models spanning 63 to 95hp. The Series scooped a coveted Silver medal at the RASE (Royal Agricultural Society of England) Awards thanks to the powerful testimony of Kubota owners. When surveyed, users praised the simplicity of the machines, their easy-to-use controls, a top speed of 40kph and comfortable cabs, together with their construction, durability, reliability and highly competitive price.

All of these tractors can be fitted with a variety of Kubota-matched attachments and large implements to allow them to handle a diverse range of tasks from ploughing, harrowing and spraying to trailer and front-loader work. And because they are manufactured by Kubota, users are guaranteed optimum performance from their tractor.

Completing Kubota’s agricultural line up is the RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle, which has set a new standard in all-terrain utility vehicles. It features a unique transmission system, advanced automotive type suspension, power steering and, thanks to the highest ground clearance in its class, this four-wheel drive vehicle is comfortable across even the most difficult terrain.  

It is powered by a Kubota 22hp E-TVCS three cylinder water-cooled diesel engine, together with a unique three-range variable hydrostatic transmission system (VHT). In action, VHT delivers rapid acceleration, excellent traction and impressive hill climbing. It also provides dynamic braking for safe, controlled hill starts and descents without having to rely solely on the vehicle’s brakes.

"I would encourage visitors to The Cereals Show to come along to the Kubota stand to take a look at our wide range of equipment including the new M130X and speak to our expert staff about the right machines for their needs," commented Dave Roberts, Kubota Tractor and Groundcare Sales and Marketing Manager.

Kubota is a world leading manufacturer that has been at the forefront of innovation for commercial and compact tractors, groundcare equipment and ride-on mowers since their Tractor and Groundcare Division first entered the UK and Ireland market more than 30 years ago. The company’s product portfolio now encompasses 24 tractor models between 12 and 130hp, 13 ride-on mower models, which cater for domestic and professional users alike and four variants of the class-leading RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.

Kubota machines have a legendary reputation for quality, performance, reliability, ease of operation and overall value-for-money. This is backed-up by a national network of specialist dealers who provide the highest standards of advice and aftersales service.

So if you want to find out more about the M40 and M Series Tractors, and the RTV900, or to view the rest of Kubota’s extensive product range, visit the Kubota stand 905 at the Cereals Event.
