Kubota RTV 500 4x4
Kubota RTV 500 4x4 Information:
In September 2008, Kubota introduced its new gas-powered,
RTV500 compact utility vehicle that comes with the comfort, technology and
refinement of a larger utility vehicle, but is compact enough to fit in the
bed of a full-size, long-bed pickup truck, according to Kubota.
The RTV500 is powered by a 15.8 horsepower, liquid-cooled twin. Kubota says
the engine will propell the four-wheel drive vehicle to a top speed of 25
The rig is 54.7 inches wide and 72 inches tall.
During the past 35 years Kubota has built its quality
reputation on meeting and exceeding customer expectations; the RTV500 is
another example of how we continually deliver everything our customers
value,” Dan Muramoto, product manager for Kubota, said in a press release.
“Compact, gas-powered quiet and refined, the RTV500 provides exceptional
ease of transportation making the vehicle ideal for moving to and from
worksites or for recreational uses such as camping or hunting trips.”
The engine features electronic fuel injection (EFI) further improves engine
performance by providing quick, easy starts, even in the most severe weather
conditions, as well as on-demand power, optimized acceleration, and
eliminates the need to adjust the carburetor.
The RTV500 comes standard with Kubota’s exclusive new “VHT Plus” variable
hydrostatic transmission, which eliminates the need to adjust belt drives
and provides smooth, reliable transmission-assisted braking and hill-holding
capabilities. Weighing a modest 1,278 pounds, the RTV 500 is rated to handle
440 pounds in its durable, metal, dumping cargo box. The RTV500 can tow up
to 1,100 lbs.
Inside the cab is a durable bench seat, the dash layout is simple and
intuitive and the flat floor provides lots of unobstructed legroom. The
standard, integrated Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) meets OSHA
1928.53 rollover protection standards.
The Kubota RTV500 is available in both Kubota Orange and Realtree® Hardwoods
