Kubota’s RTV520 Utility Vehicle. Compact size with powerful performance
Kubota Australia’s RTV520 sets a higher standard in performance and comfort for drivers.
Building on the proven RTV500, the RTV520 sports a bold new look, improved suspension and increased engine displacement.
Kubota Australia product manager for agriculture Mark Basile said the RTV520 comes with all the much-loved and unique features of the RTV500 along with a host of upgrades.
“Our quiet and reliable Kubota petrol engine has always been a strong selling feature on the RTV500. The updated RTV520 model has a bit of extra grunt; increasing from 15.8 horsepower to 17.4 horsepower,” Mr Basile said.
“The new water-cooled two-cylinder engine is just as quiet as the previous model with very little vibration. Noise at operator’s ears remains at 83dBA. Handy to note for applications such as council or golf course use.
“The redesigned hood features a new front grille, and improved headlight design. While small design touches, like updated graphics on the cargo tray, improve the look of the RTV520.”
One of the most noticeable upgrades on the RTV520 is the suspension performance, a new five link rear system increases rear suspension stroke by 30 per cent and front suspension stroke by 20 per cent. These improvements ensure a smooth and comfortable ride, even in rough terrain.
The RTV520’s Variable Hydrostatic Transmission (VHT) provides exceptional performance on any terrain with smooth and powerful acceleration. Low-speed driving is a breeze thanks to smooth throttle control, great traction and increased maneuverability.
With increased horsepower, the RTV520’s towing capacity has also increased to 530 kilograms, the standard trailer hitch allows for greater versatility and the capability to attach trailers or pull-behind equipment.
Mr Basile said the new RTV520 will allow any operator at all skill levels to get the job done with ease and comfort.
“For those looking to optimise, a range of accessories specific to the RTV520 are available including cab accessories such as a plastic canopy and windscreen, new black front guard, black alloy wheel assemblies and a new glove box which mounts under the steering wheel,” he said.
