If you’re visiting the Dairy Event and Livestock Show (7th-8th September 2010, NEC, Birmingham) and are looking for affordable, productive and economical agricultural machines, then make sure that a visit to Kubota’s extensive stand, MA460, is top of your list.
The world-leading manufacturer will be showcasing a line-up from its ranges of tractors, including new M130X, the award-winning M40 Series and the popular RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.
The new flagship 130hp M130X model is the largest in the Kubota tractor range and offers farmers and contractors 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. The new LA2253 loader, which has a lifting capacity of 2.1 tons to a maximum height of 4.1m is also available.
Also on display, will be the award-winning M9540 c/w LA1353 loader. The M40 Series tractors range comprises four models spanning 63 to 95hp and feature Kubota’s well-proven Tier III compliant, four cylinder E-CDIS (Centre Direct Injection System) engines. These high performance, low emission engines provide exceptional power and efficiency, whilst minimising noise and vibration levels. Excellent fuel economy combined with a 110 litre capacity fuel tank, allow the tractors to work hour after hour without refuelling.
As a result of feedback from customers about these features, the M40 Series tractors scooped the coveted Silver medal at the 2009 Royal Agricultural Society of England (RASE) Machinery Awards.
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. Because the loaders are manufactured by Kubota, users are guaranteed optimum performance from their tractor.
The tractor line-up will be complemented by Kubota’s RTV900, 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.
"This year’s Dairy Event and Livestock Show promises to be bigger and better than ever, so I’m certain that this popular event will draw a record crowd. As a result, we are looking forward to meeting with both existing and potential customers, and showing them the new M130X, as well as the other products in the range," said a spokesperson for Kubota (UK) Ltd – Tractor & Groundcare Division.Kubota is a world-leading manufacturer that has been at the forefront of innovation for commercial tractors, groundcare equipment and ride-on mowers since first entering the UK and Ireland market more than 30 years ago.
