April 15, 2009 Work vehicles are evolving rapidly thanks to some clever design being applied to target niche markets, with the latest example being Kubota's transformable four-passenger 4WD utility vehicle. The new RTV1140CPX quickly converts from one-to-two-row seating, allowing the operator to choose between additional passenger capacity or cargo space, depending on the task at hand. We're betting such clever functionality will provide a unique solution for a wide variety of applications. The 24.8 horsepower diesel can carry a cargo of 1,100 lbs., or tow 1,300 lbs.
The RTV1140CPX 4-wheel drive utility vehicle is powered by a three-cylinder Kubota diesel engine with 24.8-horsepower, 4-wheel wet disc brakes and hydraulic power steering. The RTV1140CPX also features a new VHT Plus transmission that delivers easier gear-shifting and smoother dynamic braking.
The new RTV is offered in Kubota Orange and Realtree Hardwoods Camouflage models.
