New Features of the Kubota RTV900 Utility Vehicle 2005-01-3505

The RTV900 utility vehicle with tractor technology features the first Variable Hydro Transmission (VHT) with auxiliary hydraulics, power steering and wet disc brakes. The VHT comes equipped with a servo-type variable capacity pump, linked in parallel with fixed capacity and variable capacity motors on the same axle. This variable motor enables an increased driving force with auto-deceleration. Additionally, the RTV900 uses hydraulic power steering that is commonly used on tractors. The RTV900's power steering decreases heavy kickback in rough terrain and allows the operator to maneuver and drive the machine with minimal effort. Wet disk brakes resolve the problems of mud and water that can infect dry-type brakes, improving safety and reliability in bad road conditions. With its sealed VHT components, power steering and wet disk brakes, the RTV900 will provide farmers, vineyards, nurseries, orchards and golf courses increased power, lower maintenance costs and easy, safe operation.
