Kubota Tractor Corporation’s latest version of its RTV900 workhorse utility vehicle model is the RTV900XT. Building on Kubota’s diesel-powered RTV900, this model’s key new feature is the variable hydro transmission (VHT) Plus2, boasting higher torque to maximize towing and hauling performance, along with smooth dynamic-braking and easier shifting.
The Kubota RTV900XT marks an important evolutionary step for our popular RTV900 line. We successfully entered and grew the utility vehicle market in 2004 with the original RTV900 and its unique diesel engine and hydraulic transmission combination; and we are continually looking for ways to bring additional value and satisfaction to this platform. The RTV900XT delivers on that goal with tangible improvements to quality, durability, and overall worksite performance,” said Dan Muramoto, utility vehicle product manager of Kubota. “From homeowners to contractors, we have always recognized that utility vehicle owners are a diverse group, and the introduction of this enhanced workhorse model furthers our goal to satisfy the varying needs of our RTV owners.”
The Power of
Diesel and Hydraulics
The RTV900XT runs on a 21.6 gross hp (16 kW), three-cylinder, liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engine, that is performance-matched to the Kubota VHT Plus2 hydrostatic transmission. With an extra-large steel cargo bed and an optional hydraulic bed-lift system, the RTV900XT makes hauling and dumping easy with the simple operation of a single lever. The front of the machine features a new reinforced gunmetal gray steel front guard for extra protection and durability. The responsive hydrostatic power steering makes for enhanced comfort, control and maneuverability, and a new seat design provides increased comfort for the operator and passenger.
Kubota RTV Family
With the introduction of the RTV900XT, the Kubota RTV family continues to include four different models, each of which offers an extensive list of optional accessories and implements and come in Kubota orange or Realtree Hardwoods Camouflage. The Kubota utility vehicle line-up includes:
• Kubota’s RTV500 is a 15.8-hp (11.8 kW) utility vehicle that fits into the bed of a full-sized pickup truck. The RTV500 is Kubota’s first gas-powered utility vehicle.
• The Kubota RTV900XT is built on the same RTV900 platform and features a variable hydro transmission (VHT) Plus2 for high torque and maximum hauling and towing capabilities.
• The RTV1100 offers an air-conditioned factory-installed cab as standard equipment for all-weather protection and comfort. Kubota equips all RTV1100 models with sliding glass windows in the doors.
• The RTV1140CPX features a transformation system that converts from one- to two- row seating options. This feature allows the operator to choose between additional passenger capacity and spacious 18.4 cu.-ft. (.5 cu m) cargo space, depending on the task at hand.
Comfort and Safety
Each model in the Kubota RTV series is designed to ensure operator comfort and safety, according to the manufacturer.
The bench seats are roomy and comfortable, the dash layout is simple and intuitive, and the flat floor provides unobstructed legroom. Regardless of model, operators can ride assured that the integrated roll-over protective structure is designed for optimal safety while meeting OSHA and SAE rollover protection standards.
