Kubota Stand Should Be First Stop For Livestock Tractors at The Dairy Event and Livestock Show

Visitors to The Dairy Event and Livestock Show looking for affordable, highly productive agricultural machines, should make a visit to Kubota's extensive stand, MA 312, top of their list.

The world-leading manufacturer will be showcasing its flagship M130X and M9540 agricultural tractors, as well as the L3200 mid-range tractor and the popular RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.

The highlight of the exhibition will be the M130X, which was unveiled last year. The 130hp model is the largest in Kubota's 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 tons to a maximum height of 4.1m.

Alongside this will be the 95hp M9540, part of the M40 Series range of agriculutural tractors, which won the Silver medal at the 2009 Royal Agricultural Society of England (RASE) Machinery Awards. The M9540 combines a high power to weight ratio and excellent manoeuvrability to ensure maximum performance and efficiency.

Moving into the mid-range market, Kubota will be exhibiting the L3200 tractor which has been designed for those who want a robust, straightforward standard tractor that offers excellent value for money. It is ideal for working around larger areas and offers exceptional productivity together with consistent, economic performance. And, like all Kubota machines, it's extremely easy to use.

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 these implements are manufactured by Kubota, users are guaranteed optimum performance from their tractor.

The tractor line-up will be complemented by the Benchseat Camo model from Kubota's range of five RTV900 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.

"The Dairy Event and Livestock Show brings together everyone within the livestock sector from farmers and smallholders to large scale contractors and I'm certain that this popular event will draw a record crowd. As a result, we are looking forward to meeting with our existing agricultural customers as well as potential customers and showing them the new M130X as well as the other products in the range," commented David Blackwood, Kubota Tractor and Groundcare Division Sales and Marketing Manager.

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 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 five variants of the class-leading RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.

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