World Leading Kubota Minis Take To The Road


Following the resounding success of their Kubota Live! Roadshow in 2006, and also the more recent Kubota Live! At Rockingham Castle event in May 2008, Kubota has now planned a further series of Kubota Live! events, during September, across England, Scotland and Wales.

Running from 2nd – 25th September, the Kubota Live! Roadshow 2008 provides visitors with a unique opportunity to put a range of world leading Kubota mini excavators through their paces in a realistic working environment.

No ticket or invitation is required, just turn up at the venue that suits you best and get 'hands on' experience of their market leading minis, with the chance to win the 30,000th Kubota mini excavator to be sold in the UK.

Kubota will be featuring a comprehensive selection from the world's widest minis range, which comprises 19 different base models from 850 kg to 8 tonnes, including highly versatile zero tail swing machines.

You’ll also get the chance to drive the exciting, class-leading RTV 900 rough terrain vehicle and to try out some of the market leading Kubota ride-on mowers, compact tractors and agricultural tractors up to 128hp.

The new 60-95hp M40 Series tractors are powered by Kubota's world renowned Tier III compliant, low emission, direct injection diesel engines, with the two larger models being turbo charged.

Lightweight, with a short wheelbase, these next generation tractors combine high power to weight ratio and a host of advanced features with class-leading manoeuvrability and performance.

Kubota Live! enables visitors to see and try out virtually the entire range of Kubota mini excavators, ride-on mowers and tractors, all at the same time and in one location, with the chance to compare different models and specifications side by side.
