TORRANCE, Calif. – (December 12, 2014) - Kubota Tractor Corporation this week commemorated the first official retail sale in the world of a Kubota Round Baler from the floor of the Tulsa Farm Show. The company introduced the second phase of its Kubota-branded Hay Tools, including round balers, bale wrappers, and disc mower conditioners, during its National Dealer Meeting this October.
John Scott, dealer principal of Kubota Center West Tulsa, sold the BV4180 premium baler to customer Frank Westbrook. "We were thrilled to learn that our sale of a Kubota round baler would be the first in the world,” said Scott. "But we’re even more excited to have provided Mr. Westbrook with a quality product that we know he’ll be very happy with for years to come. As his servicing dealer, we’re committed to making sure of that.”
Company representatives were on hand for the occasion, including Kubota Hay & Implement Business Development Manager, Clay Young. "We’re very excited to be here commemorating the first retail sale of a Kubota baler,” said Young. "Our phase one introduction of Kubota-branded Hay Tools early this year was extremely well received, and now our phase two expansion allows us to provide an even more comprehensive offering to our hay customers.”
"When we introduce new products that complement Kubota’s current offering, which we’ve done in a big way this year, our customers are excited to buy them because the Kubota name on the side means quality; they trust that they’ll consistently be able to get the job done with our equipment,” said Todd Stucke, vice president, ag and turf equipment for Kubota. "We value that level of trust, and we work hard to keep it.”
