Kubota Introduces New RTV-X1130 with Highly Capable Cargo Bed


From the World of Concrete tradeshow floor, Kubota Tractor Corporation unveiled the RTV-X1130, its newest addition to the company’s popular line of diesel-powered utility vehicles. The new RTV-X1130 was designed to reimagine the capabilities of its cargo bed: the RTV-X1130 features a 6-ft long bed that offers increased productivity and configuration options to handle various types of cargo. From gravel and sand to pallets with pipes and sod, the RTV-X1130 can be transformed to offer different cargo configurations without the need for tools. The cargo bed features different material sub-compartments, and an easy flatbed configuration with its new Kubota-exclusive Pro-Konvert bed. The RTV-X1130 is a dream machine for any anyone moving, lifting and dumping materials at a jobsite and is available now at authorized Kubota dealers. 

“With the RTV-X1130, we reimagined what a cargo bed is capable of, and then we took it to the next level by adding a suite of accessories. We’re excited to offer this utility vehicle to anyone that needs to move material – it’s going to knock their socks off,” said Jacob Mandoza, Kubota product manager, utility vehicles. “This new model will round out a contractor’s fleet – it’s the material mover model. The RTV-X1130 transforms its bed configuration to manage different loads. Need to transport pallets? Drop the bed sides and it’s a flat bed. Have two material types that can’t be mixed? Add the bed dividers and take both in one trip. Have a heavy object? Load it up with our in-bed winch and get on your way. No matter what you’re hauling, moving, or dumping the RTV-X1130 is ready to get to work!”
