Looking for new tractors or groundcare equipment? Then don’t miss Kubota Live! 2010 – the only events that give visitors the chance to put the complete Kubota range to the test.

Kubota will be staging four more Kubota Live! events in September, giving customers the chance to put the complete Kubota line-up of tractors, groundcare equipment and mini-excavators through its paces. The events will be taking place at:

14 September 2010 Wetherby Racecourse, Yorkshire, LS22 5EJ
16 September 2010 Writtle College, Essex, CM1 3RR
21 September 2010 Bath Racecourse, Avon, BA1 8BU
23 September 2010 Western Park, Shropshire, TF11 8LE

The events follow the success of Kubota Live! at Rockingham in May, which attracted a wealth of quality customers, many of whom had travelled especially to the event to help them decide which machine to order. One such customer was John Carhart, owner of Phoenix Park in Trematon Saltash, Cornwall, who drove more than 300 miles to attend the Rockingham Kubota Live!

He said: "I've always used Kubotas because of their build quality, reliability and dealer back-up. Because I've recently bought some more land, I needed a bigger tractor and knew I wanted another Kubota. The B2530 compact tractor was perfect for my needs, but I couldn’t decide between manual or HST options, so I decided to go to Kubota Live! so I could try the two different options back-to-back. After putting them to the test, I decided that manual was the right option for me.

"Kubota Live! is a fantastic event – it’s the only place where you can try out all the equipment on display and get expert advice from both the manufacturer and the dealers. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone looking to buy Kubota equipment – it was certainly worth the trip."

Visitors to the free events in September will be amongst the first to try out some of the new machines from Kubota Tractor and Groundcare Division, including the M130X, Kubota’s biggest tractor to date, the B2420 Compact Tractor, the new HST version of the L4100 mid-range tractor and the T1880 petrol ride-on mower.

And of course, the company will be exhibiting all the ‘old favourites’ too, from the GR1600 ride-on mower through to the M Series tractors and not forgetting the RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.

These will be complemented by a comprehensive selection of market-leading mini-excavators from Kubota Construction Equipment Division, which range in size from 980kg to 8 tonne. There will be three new models at the show, including the much-anticipated 5 tonne range.

"Kubota Live! gives visitors the chance to ride, drive and dig using all the machines, providing them with an unparalleled insight into each model’s suitability for their individual needs," explained a Kubota spokesperson.

"For the September events, we have worked hard to choose venues that not only offer great testing facilities but will also attract maximum visitor numbers thanks to their strategic locations across the UK. There will be plenty of free parking and refreshments available – so, wherever you are, Kubota Live! is certainly an event not to be missed."

Kubota's experienced and qualified staff will also be on-hand throughout the event to advise people about the best model for their needs. Representatives from all the local Kubota dealerships will also be attending each event.

Kubota is a world leading manufacturer that has been at the forefront of innovation for commercial tractors, groundcare equipment and ride-on mowers since first entering the UK market more than 30 years ago.

The company’s product portfolio now encompasses 24 tractor models between 12 and 128hp, 13 ride-on mower models, which cater for domestic and professional users alike and four variants of the class-leading RTV900 all-terrain utility vehicle.

Kubota machines have a legendary reputation for quality, performance, reliability, ease of operation and overall value-for-money. This is backed-up by a national network of specialist dealers who provide the highest standards of advice and aftersales service.

To put these and other machines through their paces, all people need to do, is register on-line by visiting and clicking on the Kubota Live! link, or just turn up on the day. Entry and car parking is free, with refreshments available. For further information about Kubota Live! contact your local Kubota dealer or telephone 0800 023 1111/ROI: 1 800 848 000.
