Kub­ota has ex­pe­ri­enced a mas­sive growth in its avail­able prod­uct range with the launch of a new line-up of equip­ment onto the Aus­tralian market.

As a re­sult of Kub­ota’s pur­chase of agri­cul­tural im­ple­ment man­u­fac­turer Kver­neland in 2012, it can now of­fer a whole new Kub­ota-coloured line-up of cul­ti­va­tion, seed­ing and fer­til­is­ing im­ple­ments in Aus­tralia.

Kub­ota also used the Agritech­nica-style launch held at Olympic park in Sydney in mid-Septem­ber to launch new mod­els of skid-steer, wheel and com­pact track load­ers load­ers, zero-turn mow­ers, and petrol and diesel gen­er­a­tors. Also viewed for the first time was the Kub­ota RTV-X 1140, a side-by-side util­ity task ve­hi­cle (UTV) that can be con­verted from a two-seater to a four-seater in un­der a minute.

Kub­ota deal­ers told Farms and Farm Ma­chin­ery that the de­mand for light­weight con­struc­tion equip­ment is a fast-grow­ing market in the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try, so they were pleased to see the new RO65 wheel loader, SSV65 and SSV75 skid-steer load­ers and SVL95-2S com­pact track loader make their de­but at the event.

In separate pre­sen­ta­tions, both Krone/Kub­ota se­nior prod­uct man­ager Lars Pasedag and Kver­neland area di­rec­tor Marieke Maris said they were happy that Kub­ota could now of­fer a broad range of agri­cul­tural im­ple­ments as a re­sult of the Kver­neland group pur­chase.
