KUBOTA RTV CREDIT

Buying or leasing a Kubota rtv will inevitably involve some type of credit arrangement, and getting a quote  from Kubota credit can be a useful starting point, in order to compare terms and conditions with other quotes from other financial institutions such as a bank or a credit union.

It is important to understand the principles of leasing an RTV in order to be able to make a valid comparison, both with other financial quotes, and with the costs that would be involved in buying a Kubota rtv outright.

Leasing an rtv is similar in many ways to a long-term rental.

A credit lease is a legal document that wi to effectively take ownership of the Kubota rtv for a fixed period of time, normally a number of months up to  several years.

The customer will pay a monthly charge to kubota or Kubota credit over the period of the lease.

The customer will also pay a down payment at the outset of the lease, and also what is known as a lease end payment when the term of the lease expires.

There are also likely to be costs incurred relating to the condition  of the Kubota rtv when it is effectively handed back in at the end of the lease.

The customer is responsible for the condition or state of the rtv during the term of the lease, and will be expected to make good any excessive wear or tear which will be assessed once the lease has finished.

KUBOTA RTV CREDIT

At the end of the lease, it is quite likely that the customer will be given an opportunity to purchase the rtv outright, and depending upon their circumstances this may or may not make financial sense.

If the customer receives a financial offer of credit from Kubota / Kubota Credit  or any other financial institution, such an offer may be dependent on  a cosigner of the lease.

This normally happens either when the person taking out a credit arrangement is  quite young, and the cosigner is either a parent or guardian, or where the applicant’s credit history is either poor or unproven.

In any event, if a cosigner is required it is important to realise that they assume joint financial responsibility with the applicant for all financial terms and conditions that are specified in the lease.

What is a Kubota rtv ?

A Kubota rtv refers to a Krtv series of utility vehicles, a wide range of vehicles that can be used for a wide variety of different tasks alongside more recognisable Kubota tractors and agricultural machinery. The term utility vehicle means that it is a vehicle with potential for a large number of different uses.

A Kubota rtv is normally powered by a three cylinder Kubota diesel engine, which is widely regarded in the industry as one of the most reliable engines available.

A Kubota rtv is likely to be used off-road a lot of time, and most if not all Kubota rtv’s will be fitted with responsive hydrostatic power steering. Power steering is hugely important given the size of a Kubota rtv, but also given the nature of the land that is likely to be used on.

A Kubota rtv can also be used alongside tractors and agricultural machinery for various types of lifting and pulling work such as log carrying etc. For this reason it is important that a Kubota can be easily manoeuvred in different types of terrain and in difficult land management situations.

Kubota rtv – ROPS

A Kubota rtv is likely to be fitted with what is known as a rollover protective structure. These are standard on many new and current Kubota tractors and other pieces of Kubota agricultural machinery.

These are an essential part of the safety operation of a Kubota. In the event of the Kubota rtv overturning for any reason, the rollover protective structure will give some measure of additional safety against the driver or operative of the Kubota being crushed under the weight of the vehicle.

If the Kubota rtv has a seatbelt fitted, then this should always be used. If the Kubota but not have a seatbelt fitted, then it is a good idea to approach a Kubota dealer and request that one be fitted.

The operating area of a Kubota rtv has been designed with an understanding that the operative may spend a fair degree of time driving and operating the . To this end the seating and instrumentation layout of the Kubota rtv has been designed to be as user-friendly as possible.

A Kubota rtv should be seen and thought of as a utility vehicle that can be used as an addition to other types of Kubota tractor and agricultural equipment.

It can be used alongside tractors and construction equipment to facilitate the work that these other pieces of Kubota machinery do. This type of work can be done on larger residential or smallholding properties, on small farms, or for towing or material handling.

A Kubota rtv is an ideal fit for a rural lifestyle approach to managing land areas such as vegetable gardens or estate management. Small farms that do not have much leeway in terms of budget could find that a Kubotartv is an ideal fit for doing a certain amount of work that would otherwise be time-consuming and ineffective.
