Kubota Tractor Corporation, Torrance has announced the latest version of its popular RTV900 workhorse utility vehicle model, the new and improved RTV900XT. Building on the strengths of Kubota's diesel-powered RTV900, this model's key new feature is the exclusive Variable Hydro Transmission (VHT) Plus2, boasting higher torque to maximize towing and hauling performance, along with smooth dynamic-braking and easier shifting, making the Kubota RTV900XT ideal for the toughest jobs.

"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.

New Kubota RTV900XT runs on a powerful 21.6 gross horsepower, three-cylinder, liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engine, that is performance-matched to the exclusive Kubota VHT Plus2 hydrostatic transmission.
