Any type of Kubota credit, whether it be finance or leasing, will be offered to an individual or not depending upon whether the credit agency involved and in this case Kubota as well deem the individual to be a suitable credit risk or not.
The process involved in establishing this is quite a complex one, although the end result often makes it seem slightly over simplistic.
This means that anyone who applies for credit of any type with any institution is effectively checked by a credit agency, of which nationally there are normally two or three.
They will do a thorough background check on the individual and their financial commitments and obligations and produce a report that assesses the credit agencies view of their financial suitability for credit.
The credit agency initially undertakes what is known as a credit report on the individual.
This involves collating a large amount of information relating to the individual’s personal history and their credit history.
The information collected with regard to their personal and life history relates to information such as their name, date of birth, their current and previous addresses, their current and previous telephone numbers.
Also collected information relates to their Social Insurance Number or their Social Security number, their drivers license and their passport. Information will also be collected concerning their current employment and all previous employment and any financial information that may stem from that area.
The credit agency will also collect information on the individual’s credit history.
CREDIT SCORE / CREDIT REPORT
This relates to a scan of public records for things such as bankruptcy.
Their banking history also be analysed including their level of overdrafts and whether they were authorised or not, whether any bank accounts have been closed due to lack of funds or overdrawn checks.
Any current and previous loans and mortgages will also be checked, specifically with a view to see how much was lined on whether it was appropriate and whether there were or are any problems regarding repayment terms.
Lines of credit will also be analysed to see what type of credit has been granted and in which specific areas. Also all types of credit cards and any store cards also be looked at along the same terms as well as any telephone or Internet payment problems.
Specifically there will also be a focus on what are known as pay day loan applications, which anecdotally are known to have an adverse affect on an individual’s credit score.
Once the credit agency has assembled this information relating to an individual’s personal life and their credit history they use the information to evaluate the individual and work out what they deem to be a credit score.
This credit score is essentially a single number, although it may be a triple digit number, that is set as a value between a range of two other numbers or values.
As an example, an individual may have a credit score of 50, set between a range of 1 and 100. this would indicate that the individual has an average credit rating.
In practice credit agencies use a much greater range of values as this gives them a much greater specificity of where to put the individuals credit score and accurately reflect their credit rating.
Credit agencies work out a credit score specifically on the basis of the history of the individual.
This applies to their payment history on all credit loans mortgages has been taken out, they use of available credit, their length of credit histories and what types of credit they had used.
A credit agency will also take into account the number of enquiries or credit applications that have been made and when they have been made.
After this process has been gone through, the credit agency will come up with a specific number that indicates their view of the creditworthiness of the individual.
This number will then be used by Kubota to decide whether or not to offer credit by way of finance and leasing to an individual, and if so on what terms and conditions.
Kubota may decide to offer credit to someone with a poor credit history but by increasing the size of the down payment and the interest rate charged to reflect a greater risk. Alternatively they may decide to deny credit, and suggest the individual seeks help elsewhere.
Many dealerships will also offer advice for people with poor or bad credit histories and some will have links to specific financial institutions who may be able to help.
A good dealer will go the extra mile to help an individual get credit when Kubota itself not able to offer credit because they view the individual to be a bad risk, but still want to sell them a tractor.
Kubota Insurance is needed to protect tractors, atv’s and other pieces of equipment from a number of risks. These mainly include liability claims in the event of damage to property or bodily injury, collisions with other vehicles or objects and replacement cost for a vehicle
Kubota Insurance can be best arranged with Kubota itself, through KTAC Insurance.
Arranging insurance for a Kubota tractor can sometimes be done to an individual’s home owners insurance policy, depending upon the size of the tractor and whether it is being used for domestic or business purposes.
Insurance companies vary quite widely as to whether they will provide cover or not. Those that do provide cover all willing to extend a policy normally provide fairly restrictive coverage.
Normally a much better alternative is Kubota’s own dedicated website KTAC , known as KTAC Insurance, which provides a much better and more inclusive range of insurance products, and will normally be a requirement of any credit arrangement made, either with Kubota Credit Corporation or any other credit agency.

This is a fairly generalised list, but should give an indication of the type of cover that is available.
Kubota Insurance – Risk assessment
Anyone owning a Kubota tractor would do well to do a risk assessment of their home and environment, whether as a formal or an informal process, before deciding on any KTAC Insurance .
Anyone who uses a Kubota tractor simply as a domestic vehicle will have different risks and therefore different insurance requirements to someone who uses a Kubota Tractor in any type of commercial setting.
Any risk assessment of a Kubota tractor for KTAC Insurance purposes would do well to focus on certain areas of operation, mainly the cost of replacement cost of the tractor itself and public and employee liability, and make sure these risks are covered under the insurance policy itself.

Kubota Insurance, KTAC Insurance – Tractor Safety
Kubota Tractor safety is a huge issue both in terms of any individual’s actual safety and in terms of risk assessment and subsequent insurance costs.
There are three main areas of safety that are key to KTAC Insurance .
To make sure that any operative of the Kubota tractor has fully studied and understood the instruction manual that comes with the tractor, especially how to stop it in an emergency, and all the emergency procedures recommended by the manufacturer.
That any operative of the Kubota tractor is fully qualified and capable of driving an understanding of mechanics of the tractor, especially when effecting KTAC Insurance.
This is especially important where a Kubota tractor is used either in a domestic setting or on a family farm, where there may be a temptation to let someone who is a younger member of the family use the vehicle.
Capability of driving any type of Kubota tractor should be carefully assessed and if in doubt as to what age is appropriate check with the manufacturer or local law enforcement.
The Kubota tractor itself should always be fitted with a Roll Over Protective System (ROPS) and a seat belt which should be worn at all times.
On all modern Kubota tractor a ROPS will come as standard, but may not be fitted to some older models or Kubota tractors that were bought on the grey market.
Kubota Insurance, KTAC Insurance – Accident Prevention
The main causes of accidents when using a Kubota tractor tend to be threefold, which is why KTAC Insurance is needed.
The most common type of accident tends to happen when a Kubota tractor is being used too close to a verge or is being used at such an angle that the tractor becomes unstable and tips over.
A Kubota tractor should only ever be used on land that is relatively flat, and on land presents no possibility of the machine tipping over onto its side. A Kubota tractor should also never be driven backwards for the same reasons.
Another major cause of accidents is when the Kubota tractor hits an individual or object because the environment in which the tractor is being used has not been secured properly.
It is essential when using any type of tractor to make sure there are no individuals or noticeable objects that could come into contact with the tractor and cause damage or fatality to the individual or the tractor itself.
The other type of accident tends to happen when the operative of the tractor leaves the vehicle and either hasn’t turned it off properly or put it in its designated parking mode, resulting in some type of runaway tractor that can obviously cause immense damage.
Kubota Insurance and Farm Insurance
If a Kubota tractor is being used on a farm or ranch, or in any type of agricultural or commercial setting then it is possible that it will need to be included as part of an overall farm insurance policy.
When this is the case it is advisable to specify the tractor or tractors so they are listed individually, along with any attachments or implements associated with such tractors. It is also a good idea to list any manufacturers details as well.
