Choose a Kubota RTV for deer season. Here’s why.


America’s best-selling diesel utility vehicle.

Kubota RTVs have been the best-selling diesel utility vehicles in North America since 2004, according to Power Products Marketing North American Utility Vehicle Marketing Reports. And would you like to know whey? Because each year, Kubota sets the standard for ruggedness and reliability, ready to work day after day under all kinds of conditions.

Here’s a great example. Deer season is upon us.

Across America, most states are in the full swing of deer season, and hunting will continue through January, and even in February in some cases. So, whether you prefer a bow or your favorite Winchester, it’s time to get out there. And Kubota has the ideal utility vehicle to get you out into the field, and back home with that 14-pointer.

Meet the Kubota RTV-X1120D

Compared to standard utility vehicles, this is a step up in power, comfort, convenience and style – with a rugged 24.8HP Kubota D1105 3-cylinder diesel engine, exclusive Variable Hydro Transmission (VHT-X), blue-tinted halogen headlights and more. Available in Orange or Realtree(R) AP Camo. You’re going to like the way it works.

Like your favorite rifle, performance is everything.

For jobs that require extra acceleration and climbing power, the RTV-X1120D is the obvious choice. It packs Kubota’s proven 24.8 HP diesel power pack, which provides a top speed of 29 mph and plenty of payload, towing and hill climbing power.

These features prove we’re more than the typical utility vehicle:

• VHT-X Variable Hydraulic Transmission with Oil Cooler

Kubota has more experience in variable hydraulic transmissions than any other Utility Vehicle manufacturer. Kubota’s advanced VHT-X offers a wide torque band and large oil coolers that boost performance and durability.

• Limited-Slip Front Differential

True 4-wheel drive with a limited-slip front differential and a locking rear differential help reduce wheel spin to a minimum, giving you greater control and a smoother ride on rough or muddy terrain.

• In-Line 2-speed Shifter (L-H-N-R)

You’ll shift less often and maintain better control, thanks to new transmission gearing with just two forward speeds (high and low), plus neutral, and reverse.

• Dynamic Braking

You’ll feel more secure, especially when traveling down long inclines, knowing that dynamic braking is providing additional braking power and greater driving control.

• Strong High-Rigidity Frame

The high-rigidity steel frame isolates the occupants from noise, vibrations, and harshness. With structural strength that few in the industry can match, this durable frame can take years of punishment from heavy loads and rough terrain.

• ROPS meets SAE, OSHA and ANSI standards

For your safety and protection, a ROPS is a standard feature on the RTV-X1120D. This ROPS meets SAE J2194, OSHA 1928 and ANSI B71.9 standards.

• Front & Rear Independent Suspension

Regardless of the terrain or load, independent suspension on all four wheels ensures a truly exceptional ride. Kubota’s Extra Duty IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) technology also sets a new standard for durability.

• Height-Adjustable Front & Rear Suspension

Whether you’ve got a heavy load or no load at all, adjustment of the front and rear suspension height will ensure the proper vehicle height for a smooth ride and optimum driveability.

• High Ground Clearance-- 10.4 inches

The new X-series raises the bar on ground clearance—to a full 10.4” with 8” of suspension travel—letting you glide over the bumps rather than through them.

• 1300 lbs Towing Capacity

Standard front and rear two-inch hitch receivers at the front and back let you tow up to 1,300 lbs. of gear.

• 1100 lbs Cargo Capacity

It’s not enough to get you there and back. You need to get your stuff there and back, as well. This heavy-duty steel cargo box can do that for you, carrying up to a halfton (1,102 lbs.) of tools, firewood, gear, supplies...whatever you need to haul from here to there and back again. Cargo tie-down hooks help keep your gear secure.

And that’s just the start of the outstanding features! Check out the rest of the story here.
