Kubota Tractor Corp. announced the latest version of its RTV900 workhorse utility vehicle model, the new and improved RTV900XT.
"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," says Dan Muramoto, Utility Vehicle Product Manager for 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," he adds.
In a release, the company said the RTV900XT runs on a 21.6 gross horsepower, three-cylinder, liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engine, that is performance-matched to the exclusive Kubota VHT Plus2 hydrostatic transmission. This combination provides the power and torque to handle the toughest jobs over the long run. With an extra-large steel cargo bed and an optional hydraulic bed-lift system, the RTV900XT makes hauling and dumping easy with the 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 exceptional comfort, control and maneuverability, and a new seat design provides increased comfort for the operator and passenger.
