The Kubota RTV500 is a petrol powered utility vehicle. Tough, strong and adaptable the RTV500 is ideal for grounds maintenance professionals, farmers and landowners who need to get around to carry out their work. Easy to use, familiar controls mean that this vehicle is easy to drive and excellent visibility from the well appointed cab means that it is easy to manoeuvre.
The Kubota RTV500 serves a similar market to the RTV400 and applications include carrying cargo around the farm, transporting people and equipment around an estate or visiting the barn to do chores. The RTV500 represent a great opportunity to get a high specification Kubota RTV at a budget price without sacrificing on quality or reliability.
The RTV500 features great cargo carrying capacity, adaptability and operator convenience. The cargo bed has a 0.5 cubic metre capacity and features strong metal fixtures and fitting. Manual emptying is easy because the bed is perfectly counter-balanced. Because the chassis of the RTV500 is the same as the RTV400 all the options are interchangeable.
The RTV500's smooth 15.8-horsepower, 2-cylinder Kubota petrol engine is liquid-cooled to ensure reliability and minimize noise and vibration, reducing operator fatigue and increasing efficiency. The engine features an Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) system that provides on-demand power, optimizes acceleration and enhances quiet operation. Plus, the EFI eliminates the need to adjust the carburettor -enabling better engine start-up in cold weather or after long-term storage, and improving engine serviceability.
Kubota's exclusive and innovative hydrostatic transmission provides the RTV500 with an exceptional level of performance, handling, and reliability under tough conditions. Approach long downhill grades with confidence utilizing the VHT Plus' smooth, engine-assisted deceleration. In addition, the VHT offers outstanding traction and impressive power, providing the muscle to take you almost anywhere.
Get in and get going. The RTV500 features ergonomic, well-placed controls for easy operation, and a comfortable contoured bench seat, so both the driver and passenger can enjoy a full day of work or play. The low operator platform offers ample and obstacle-free leg room, so it's simple to step on or off.
Under the front bonnet is a refillable LPG tank, plumbed and wired into the vehicle's main systems. The RTV can be switched to petrol if LPG is not available. Refilling the LPG tank is easy using the nozzle mounted just under the front bumper.
Apart from using the refillable LPG tank the RTV can also use LPG from a bottle.
This LPG option offers better running costs, whole life costs and cold weather performance than electric power.
Operators benefit from the LPG choice; cab heaters are available and much more effective, more power means gritters, pressure washers and attachments work harder for longer.
This carefully engineered LPG fuel option does not infringe the Kubota product warranty.
