Kubota has developed a lawn tractor series that will be produced in the USA with good cost to performance ratio and with new features for improved control and comfort. We believe this is the first in the industry of lawn tractor series that features the Cushion Ride system, Auto Throttle Advance system and other features. The new models, that were introduced this spring, were designed concurrently with a horizontal-axis water-cooled diesel engine and a vertical-axis water-cooled gasoline engine. Another new feature is the Electric Power Steering system. I will now discuss these newly introduced technologies.
