Kubota expands RTV utility vehicle lineup

November 17, 2023  By Turf & Rec

Kubota Canada Ltd. – a leading Canadian manufacturer of utility vehicles has introduced two new models to its RTV lineup which now includes the brand new RTV-X and RTV–X1130.  

The RTV-X series features the Kubota diesel engine, VHT-X transmission, hydraulic dump bed and power steering that have made the X-Series options for commercial, residential and farming operators. The lineup expansion offers an optional ProKonvert cargo box with carrying capabilities of up to a half-ton, along with three-way-open and the ability to convert to a flatbed without the use of any tools. A redesigned and aggressive exterior with LED headlights and new heavy-duty multipurpose tires allows the X-Series to complete an array of jobs quickly and effectively. 

The legacy of the X-Series begins with the Kubota diesel engine at the heart of the all-capable RTV-X. From towing and hauling to running through rough terrain, the engine ensures the machine will consistently work as hard as its operator. The VHT-X (Variable Hydrostatic Transmission) allows for smooth and powerful acceleration, while wet disk brakes ensure the operator will feel secure and in control.  

The full steel frame and CV joint guard, along with underbody skid plates, can take years of heavy loads and rough terrain, ensuring the most critical parts of the engine and transmission are protected. An optional spray-on bed liner for the steel cargo bed protects the bed from dirt and damage.  


The X-Series powers productivity and was designed with features to ensure even the hardest tasks are made easy. The hydraulic bed dump does just that as the flick of a single lever ensures even the heaviest loads will slide out in a matter of seconds. Paired with a towing capacity of 1,300 pounds off the back receiver, towing is made easy and struggle free. Dynamic brakes and selectable full-time 4WD with front limited-slip differential ensure the operator is provided with a heightened sense of security, allowing for control and traction during all Canadian seasons.         

The ProKonvert cargo box, available on select models, demonstrates Kubota’s commitment to the operator. A three-way-open cargo bed design allows for the bed to be opened from either side or the rear, making hauling and loading items easier. The same design allows operators to convert to a flatbed in minutes without the use of any tools, allowing for added flexibility when transporting bulky or unusually shaped items. To ensure the security of cargo, the X-series maneuvers extremely well even when fully loaded thanks to the extra duty independent suspension.          



Kubota also adds to the RTV portfolio with the all-new RTV- X1130 long bed model, equipped with a six-foot-long ProKonvert cargo box. The RTV-X1130 is Kubota’s highest capacity model ever with payloads of more than a half-ton and bulk carrying of over 26 cubic feet. This new RTV carries the legacy of the series with the Kubota diesel engine outputting 24.8HP, the VHT-X transmission and the standard hydraulic dump bed, which can be unloaded with little effort and in mere seconds. For added versatility, the cargo box can be equipped with a winch and extended tailgate allowing you to load items directly from ground level into the box.
