See the M130X and a Comprehensive Groundcare Line-Up From Kubota at the National Ploughing Championships, Ireland

Visitors to the National Ploughing Championships will be able to see Kubota's flagship M130X tractor for the first time in Ireland as well as a comprehensive range of the company's Groundcare equipment.

The M130X and the M Series agricultural tractors will be on display on Murphy Machinery's stand. Meanwhile Kubota will be offering visitors a special free upgrade worth €1,000 on the RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle, which will be exhibited alongside a range of sub-compact, compact and mid-range tractors and ride-on mowers on its stand 47, on Row C, Block 2.

Murphy Machinery is the sole importer of Kubota M-Series tractors in the Republic of Ireland and will be exhibiting a complete line-up at the event. Unveiled last year, the 130hp, M130X 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. It can be enhanced with the new LA2253 loader, which has a lifting capacity of 2.1 tons to a maximum height of 4.1m.

This will be complemented by both the M108S and the M40 Series agricultural tractors. The M40 Series won the Silver medal at the 2009 Royal Agricultural Society of England (RASE) Machinery Awards and encompasses four models between 60 and 95hp.

On Kubota’s own stand, the manufacturer will be offering a special free-upgrade package worth €1,000 on any new RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicles purchased before the end of October 2011. The RTV900 features a unique transmission system, advanced automotive type suspension, power steering and, thanks to high ground clearance, this four-wheel drive vehicle is comfortable across even the most difficult terrain. The upgrade, which is available on all five models, includes free roof, screen, wipers and a gear lever lock.

Alongside the RTV900 will be the BX2350 sub compact tractor together with the STV and B3030 compact tractor and L5740 mid-range model. Renowned for their reliability, performance and economy, these hardworking, powerful, no-nonsense tractors are extremely versatile and can tackle the most difficult jobs with ease.

There’ll also be six professional ride-on mowers on display including the GR1600-II and GR2100-II, the G Series, ZD326 Zero Turn Mower and the F3680 with High Tip collector. All of the mowers are powerful, economical and efficient, thus enabling users to achieve an expert finish whether they’re mowing a lawn, a paddock or a football pitch.

"The National Ploughing Championships is a hugely popular and exciting event offering a wealth of different attractions. We will be showcasing a wide range of ride-on mowers and tractors – and, of course, Murphy Machinery, will have our agricultural tractors on display," commented David Blackwood, Kubota Tractor and Groundcare 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 Tractor and Groundcare Division 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.
