Kubota builds four different RTV900 configurations based on the same platform. Each is equipped with different features to fit almost any use.
RTVs are powered by a liquid cooled, 898cc three cylinder diesel pumping out 21.6 horsepower. This engine is mated to a three range (low, medium and high) Variable Hydrostatic Transmission (VHT). This unique transmission provides smooth acceleration, and unequalled engine-transmission braking. With a 1630 pound payload capacity and a cargo capacity of 1102 lbs, it’s tempting to carry some extremely heavy loads.
With McPherson struts up front, a semi-independent, leaf spring rear suspension and 8.3 inches of ground clearance, the RTV delivers an acceptable ride over most surfaces. Its high compression diesel engine and VHT hydrostatic transmission, featuring “transmission dynamic braking”, means merely releasing the throttle will nearly bring the RTV to a complete stop – even while traveling downhill.
There‘s also a rear hydraulic Auxiliary Remote Valve for hooking up any number of hydraulically operated attachments. The roomy, steel dump box is hydraulically actuated.
