Climbing steep muddy elevations: Easy in Kubota’s RTV X900

Ruggedly built and supremely capable, the new Kubota RTV X900 impressed at its first showing last month when it was introduced to a number of farming and outdoor media outlets, including FMN.

Kubota’s new offering has certainly come a long way and has improved on just about every area when compared to the previous model.

The 3-cylinder liquid cooled Kubota OHV diesel engine provides decent power and mated to a new and improved 3 Range VHT-X Variable Hydrostatic Transmission, delivers a smooth, progressive ride. Engine braking in particular, was excellent and was demonstrated well on the steep declines of the Land Rover 4×4 Experience course. Whilst we talk braking, the X900 also benefits from in-board wet-type disc brakes.

We like the addition of tie downs in the cargo box

A new, bigger enclosed cab with easy open windscreen provides plenty of leg-room and high visibility. Integral storage offers added convenience.

Another plus is the hydraulic lifting load-bed which can handle a decent amount of cargo at just over 15 cubic feet – and allows ‘drop off’s’ with ease, saving not only time but plenty of effort in the process. We like the addition of tie downs in the cargo box too.

A 1 tonne towing capacity also means great versatility and traction from the 4wd system and revised suspension set-up was excellent – the independent suspension having plenty of travel and providing high ground clearance.

Definitely one to take a look at if considering a new UTV – we like it.
