Kubota Tractor Corporation recently introduced the new RTV-X1120 models. The company says these machines were designed for commercial customers who use the machines for daily heavy-duty work.
The company says that the Kubota RTV-X1120 combines Kubota quality with enhanced power, performance and torque at a starting price of $13,999 MSRP.
“The biggest surprise for the marketplace is the technology offered at a competitive price point,” said Roger Gifford, Kubota product manager, utility vehicles. “The new RTV-X1120 is a well-equipped machine at a highly competitive price point. Simply put, there is no better value currently in the market, and we are extremely excited about adding these models to our lineup. We are confident that commercial customers will appreciate the six new model options to consider when purchasing a worksite utility vehicle.”
Featuring a 24.8 gross horsepower diesel engine, Kubota says the RTV-X1120 is dependable and ready for any job. With its 3-cylinder liquid-cooled diesel engine, Kubota says the machine has a well-earned reputation for providing extra acceleration and climbing power.
Providing top speeds of 29 mph, Kubota says the engine and VHT-X transmission also provide plenty of hill-climbing power. The company says that with increased speed comes an increased dynamic load, and the RTV-X1120 comes equipped with three-point seatbelts for safety.
Kubota says its X Series was designed for comfort and convenience under tough working conditions, and they add that the RTV-X1120 includes style and creature comforts found in the RTV-X family.
Featuring new shoulder restraints for the operator and passenger, Kubota says the RTV-X1120 is designed for reducing operator fatigue during long work days. Kubota adds that it has ergonomically designed 60:40 split buckle seats, fully hydraulic power steering, digital dashboard display, large under seat storage compartments and an easily accessible parking brake.
The company says the RTV-X1120 models are available in two color options: Kubota Orange and RealTree AP Camo. These options include machine-polished alloy wheels, which are standard on RTV-X1120D models only, optional black ally rims and a spray-on bed liner is available on all models except for the general purpose model.
Kubota says the heavy-duty cargo steel box on the RTV-X1120 models provides ample room for hauling gear, supplies, materials and tools around the jobsite. The company adds that with a switch of a lever, the hydraulic-lift (on worksite models only) cargo box rises to dump materials, which Kubota says allows more efficiency and less manual labor unloading cargo.
The company says that standard two-inch receivers are located at the front and back of the vehicle, which allows a tow capacity of up to 1,300 lbs.
Case Construction Equipment added to its skid steer compact track loader attachment line by introducing the new hydraulic pallet forks with nursery sleeves.
The company says these are ideal for landscapers, municipalities, nurseries and other contractors who deal with both palletized materials and live nursery stock, and Case adds that the forks transition easily between the standard and “nursery fork” configurations.
Running off standard auxiliary hydraulics, Kubota says the hydraulically controlled tines can be positioned from a 10- to 44-inch spacing for optimal handling and transitioning between different tasks without leaving the cab.
The company says the new forks also allow contractors to own a single set of forks for multiple jobs, and Kubota says they help protect the integrity of root balls on large trees during transport.
