No room for Kubota brand

Doesn't Kubota sell RTVs in the Great White North? I don't see any mention of the brand. At least not in the headings.

Yes though do. Mostly in the commercial markets. Very very little in the sports and recreation market up here.

Farmers buy them, not much good for play though. They need to take a few pages out of Deere's book and build something like the RSX850i

Wow, this is my second 1100 and I never realized what a mistake I've been making. LOL I'm 70 years old and not into the speed and such, but my machines have served me well, although agreeably slower than my Polaris Sportsman. I've never been up against a hill that I couldn't climb and use the 1100's for snow plowing and general use around the farm. I also press them into a yearly hunting trip and love being able to defy the elements, while my ATV partners freeze during their rides to the back country.

Thanks to all for explaining why they don't belong in this forum. I guess I'm just too old and settled for this forum. But, I still want tracks and have ordered a set of Complast 4S's.

At 70 you're allowed a couple of mistakes. LOL Most of these young pups (under 50) are in to much of a hurry. I drive an old Honda 450 Rancher. Not powerful or fast, but it has never left me stranded.

No need to be a stranger on here, all are welcomed. Be interesting to hear how your Kubota performs when you get the tracks installed. Please let us know and share a picture or two. Tracstar

Well it's been a while, so I thought I'd report in. If you guys think that the Kubota was too slow for you, then stop reading now. I've had the tracks on since late spring and they are great. I go through swamp and mud without a rut left behind. Now if I am going up a hill and it's swampy, then that's a different situation. But it gets me there and I don't think the wheels would. And it rides a lot smoother in rough terrain.

Maybe about a third lost in top end speed, but that wasn't much to start with anyhow. It does sling muddy water up and down both sides from front to back and really seems to sit up higher. Now that brings me to my next problem. The wife has a hard time getting in it and today informed me that she wasn't going to be riding in it or driving it anymore. I have to admit it is like mounting a horse with the new height. Does any one know if there are steps available for this? Or any other suggestions are welcome.

Can't wait for snow,

SF

I don't know if there are steps available or not. I'm guessing that there would be some aftermarket ones available. A person would have to google it. If you have a friend who is good with a welder, I would imagine it would not be to hard to fabricate some steps.

Simple easy cheap solution. Build a small wooden step, tie it to the roll cage with a rope. Throw it in the box once she is in. I know a few older couples that do the same with their pickup trucks, (minus the tie to roll cage)

Guess I'am to old too,because I like to be in a heated cab as well. I don't have a Kubota but my side x side keeps me warm and dry. It's not that fast but it gets me there and back and it's reliable.Guess being old has it's advantages in that I don't have to rush all the time.
