Commercial & Construction Uses for Kubota RTV


American industry. That’s where we shine.

Everybody knows Kubota’s RTV Series delivers a remarkable range of versatility, from family recreation to farming to plain hard work. After all, you don’t become North America’s best-selling utility vehicle without a reputation for reliable performance. But let’s focus on the RTV’s ability to perform in the most demanding of places -- the commercial and/or construction work site. Because it’s there, where the work gets steel-toed tough, that our RTVs stand out.

A machine for every task.

In case you don’t know them, here are the machines in this outstanding series. We make two mid-sized units, the 400Ci and the 500, four diesel-powered full-sized vehicles, the X900, X1120, X1100C, and the X1140, as well as the full-sized, gas-powered XG850 Sidekick.

This extensive range has been specifically designed to perform in commercial use, and is renowned for its high quality, durability and reliability, all critically important for commercial applications. Kubota offers competitive commercial financing, and all products are backed by Kubota’s national dealer service support network, to maximize productivity and reduce downtime. They provide impressive power in a variety of applications, even if that’s just hauling your crew.

In industrial applications, sometimes smaller is better.

Kubota RTVs’ maneuverability allows them to be used in construction projects of all shapes and sizes, whether you’re working on new construction, urban restoration, a park or a public space. Tight spaces aren’t an obstacle. Whatever you need to move, push, pull, tote or dump, we’ve got you covered.

Meet a company in Sandersville, Georgia, that relies on Kubota power and performance every day.

Here’s an industrial setting that really shows Kubota muscle. Southeastern Performance Minerals, LLC, operates a state-of-the-art muscovite mica processing facility to separate mica from the sedimentary deposits of clay, sand and mica deposited in their region millions of years ago. The company also grinds muscovite mica into high-purity, high aspect-ratio, low bulk density mica products for a variety of markets, from paint to cosmetics and adhesives. They have materials to move, and a lot of it.

Here’s what Paul Coughlin and David Avant, SPM Partners, has to say about their Kubota RTV-X1140:

“For us, the reason we looked at the X1140 is that the sites that we operate on are industrial sites or mining operations, we’re off road or in the pits.”

“When we get a lot of rain or a lot of weather, we need the power and the 4-wheel drive that the 1140 and the 500 offers us.”

“We looked at a lot of other products that are on the market today, the fit and the finish in terms of the strength of those units, again, we’re an industrial kind of operation so our guys are kind of hard on our equipment.”

“The big thing that I’ve found with my Kubota and my local Kubota dealer is the service. If I have a problem or we need a part, it’s a phone call. One of the dealers will have that part in inventory for any of the individual pieces of equipment we have.”

What others are saying about the RTV Series.

The Pine Bush Equipment team, in Pine Bush, New York, calls Kubota’s RTV-X1120:

“Their best-valued utility vehicle yet, the new model expansion in the RTV-1120 series delivers all the power, bells and whistles at a head-turning price.” Adding, “America’s best-selling diesel utility vehicle manufacturer sets the bar again, this time in value.”

Further, recently weighed in, offering its review of the RTV-X1120.

“Designed for commercial customers who use utility vehicles for heavy-duty work, the Kubota RTV-X1120 models feature enhanced power, torque, and performance starting at a price point of $13,999 MSRP. The RTV-X1120 has a Kubota 24.8-horsepower 3-cylinder liquid-cooled diesel engine with a VHT-X transmission that provides a top speed of 29 mph, along with ample hill-climbing power, the company says. With the increased speed comes an increased dynamic load, so the RTV-X1120 is equipped with three-point seatbelts for added safety. The machine also includes style and comforts found in the company’s RTV-X family, such as new shoulder restraints for the operator and passenger, ergonomically designed 60:40 split bucket seats, a digital dashboard display, fully hydraulic power steering, an easily accessible parking brake, and a large under-seat storage compartment.”
