Kubota RTV 1100
The Kubota RTV 1100 is one of the bestselling atvs on the market, and Kubota have invested much of their tractor technology into improving its level of performance.
Kubota realised that many of their competitors used engineering and mechanical models that were similar to those used in golf carts and four wheel drives. They decided instead to import their widely acclaimed tractor engineering, including hydrostatic transmission, making it a heavy duty machine.
Kubota has managed to make this rtv a combination of an incredibly versatile atv, with the capability and performance of a powerful tractor.
This is especially important when carrying or pulling heavy loads, that the Kubota RTV 1100 is able to manage the load in the way that a tractor does, and not get swayed around or pulled by it.
This has led to some criticism in the past about the handling and ride of the Kubota RTV 1100 series. Kubota have completely addressed this by redesigning the suspension and feel of the vehicle.

Kubota RTV 1100 safety
What often a Kubota RTV 1100 will be used on some type of farm or agricultural complex, and this raises huge and very important safety issues which are not always given the attention that they should be.
Any type of farm environment or agricultural complex carries with it certain risks which need to be identified and managed as a deliberate and definite process.
Because farms and agricultural environments differ hugely in their nature there is no standard uniformity in terms of work or work environment that would otherwise define both the risks and safety protocols needed for the safe use of a Kubota RTV 1100.
This lack of uniformity is obviously one of the main appealing factors for many people who own or run any type of farm or large agricultural environment.
Given the nature of the safety issues such if the person responsible for running the business is aware of the various safety concerns, then significant measures can be taken to minimise these risks.
With many small and even larger farms, there is a real overlap between home and work, both in terms of the physical environment and in terms of the day-to-day running of the operation.
This means that more day-to-day boundaries that exist in a more routine type work environment not there, and allowances have to be made for the indications of that.
It is common in a number of farms for family members to work as part of the farm, not least of all because there are quite often no real restrictions in terms of age at topical to the type of work being done.
This means that it is quite possible for a person of a relatively young age to be driving or using a Kubota RTV 1100 when realistically they are not of an age when they are competent to do so.
The safety issues of using a Kubota tractor or RTV 1100 are very real, and should be addressed in the context of identifying what the risks are, both in terms of the nature of the environment, the type of work being done and the age and capabilities of the people employed or being used to do the work in the first place.
The Kubota B7100 was a compact utility tractor made by Kubota in the mid-70s, and was available for sale as new until the mid-1980s.
It was a well liked tractor, and there are many second-hand models still available, although given its age, care should be taken to verify mileage and condition of engine when buying.
The Kubota B7100 came as either a two wheel drive, or a four-wheel-drive with the HST being the hydrostatic version.
Kubota B7100 HST
The Kubota B7100 HST had a hydrostatic transmission, and was available for sale from the mid-1970s, up until the mid-1990s, and as such there are probably more used Kubota B7100 HST’s still available than the standard model.
There were three variants of this tractor, the Kubota B7100 HSTE which was a two wheel drive tractor, and the Kubota B7100 D and Kubota B7100 HSD which were both four-wheel-drive. It had a diesel three cylinder liquid cooled engine, with other specifications pretty similar to the standard Kubota B7100
Kubota B7100 Specs
The Kubota B7100 was powered by a three cylinder diesel engine, with a fuel capacity of just under 3 1/2 gallons, an oil capacity of just under 4 L, and a coolant capacity of around 4 1/2 L.
Transmission was an unsynchronised gear system, consisting of six forward and two reverse gears. it had a wheelbase of just under 50 inches, and a weight of just over lbs 1000. lin, a length of just under 80 inches, a width of 40 inches and a height of 45 1/2 inches.
Kubota B7100 Loader
The Kubota B7100 was a front end loader with a height of just over 176cm, a clearance for dumped buckets of 130 cm and a dump range of 51 cm.
Kubota B7100 Parts
Finding parts for a B7100 may be tricky, but there are several options available. It is unlikely but possible that a Kubota dealer may have parts available, or at least may know where they can be obtained.
They may have access to parts for current Kubota tractors, which can be used on older models. Going to a Kubota specific discussion forum may also be helpful, and also there may be parts available that have been taken from old and discarded Kubota B7100 tractors that can be obtained online.
As there is no question of having to comply with a warranty, partsts from other manufacturers can be used if appropriate. Again a good discussion forum such as tracker by net should be able to give people advice on this issue. Other options to consider include websites such as tractor house, eBay or advertising on craigslist to see if anyone can help.

Kubota B7100 Attachments
The Kubota B7100 was and is a very versatile tractor, and there are a wide range of attachments that can be used to it to make it even more productive. A word of caution. A number of companies that sell attachments say they are compatible with this particular tractor, but it is down to the individual to check before purchase they can actually be used with it.
The most common attachments that are said to be compatible with the Kubota B7100 are :

Kubota B7100 Manual
Obtaining a manual for a B7100 is srelatively easy to do, as there a number available online. The value of a manual is that it gives the owner detailed and practical information concerning servicing and maintenance. It contains essential details concerning the tractor controls, gauges, adjustments, operating instructions, maintenance procedures and troubleshooting tips.
The manual can either be obtained from sites such as Amazon, eBay, kubotabooks etc. There will normally be a cost for this, which can range from somewhere in the region of US$45 up to 150/US$200. The price can vary depending upon the rarity of the manual, or its condition.
There are a number of document sharing sites such as scribd which offer themanual as a free PDF download, which can certainly be checked to see how full and complete it is, before purchasing an original.
Aside from the practical value to an owner of obtaining a manual, is also a really good investment if and when you come to sell the tractor. Anyone purchasing a Kubota B7100 will value the information and guidance that an original manufacturers manual has.
Kubota B7100 Reviews
Finding reviews for a Kubota B7100 can be quite tricky, largely because the tractor was in production and for sale before the internet was really in use. This means that video reviews, and other reviews on sites like Amazon have not really happened.
What this does mean, is that someone needs to be a bit more creative in terms of finding reviews about this tractor.
Luckily, there are a number of websites, such as tractorbynet, and orange tractor, which have a vast experience and a sizeable amount of information about tractors such as the Kubota B7100.
Sites such as this, are largely discussion forums, but because of their authority on the internet, they actually carry a sizeable amount of detailed and accurate information, that would normally be thought of as constituting a review.
Kubota B7100 reviews can also be found on sites that sell them for sale. Whilst these are not technically review sites, they should carry a significant amount of information about the tractor itself, largely because this is what helps to sell them.
Kubota B7100 for Sale and Prices
There are a number of Kubota B7100 tractors for sale, and the internet is ideal place to start and check them out.
Given there age and rarity there may not be a tractor close by to where the individual lives, so interest in any tractor that is advertised for sale online should also take into account any transportation costs that may be involved, as well as any pre-sale inspection or mechanical checks
Kubota B7100 tractors are advertised on sites such as tractorhouse.com, as well as eBay, Amazon and craigslist. Secondhand tractors are a huge market, and should be thought of in the same way as a second-hand or used car market.
Prices for a used Kubota B7100 can range from US$4000 up to US$9000, based on models currently available for sale on Tractorhouse has as of April 2019..
When buying, it is ideal to try and find out as much as possible about the usage of the tractor, as this will give you a fairly good indication of what its mechanical condition is likely to be. This may more easily be done if purchasing from an individual, than from a dealer.
This simply because an individual can give you a fairly good description of when and how they purchased the tractor, what sort of land it has been used on and what it has been used for. The dealer may be able to give you this information, but is less likely to have such specifics.
Finding a Kubota dealer is relatively easy nowadays, finding the right dealer that will give you the best deal is also fairly easy, but does require quite a lot of work and research.
The first and most important thing is to have some sense of what type of Kubota tractor you are interested in buying, and whether you are thinking of buying a new or a used tractor.
If you are thinking of buying a new Kubota tractor, then inevitably you will need to buy it from a Kubota dealer, which is not necessarily the case if you are buying a used Kubota tractor.
However, whatever dealer you buy it from the principles in terms of getting the best deal on the same.
Deciding what type of Kubota tractor or garden tractor or Kubota RTV you are thinking of buying is best determined by first of all thinking about what type of work you want it to do, and then looking at the various models such as the Kubota B, Kubota BX or Kubota L range of tractors and see which is most likely to be the right model for you.
The Kubota website for your country is likely to give you an indication of what models are available and at what cost.
Bear in mind that the price quoted on the website is likely to be similar to what is referred to in auto sale sterms as the manufacturers recommended retail price.
The process of buying a Kubota tractor should be thought of in many ways as being similar to that of buying an auto.
A Kubota dealer will have a lot of flexibility in terms of how they can help you and in what ways.
It is in their interests to develop you as a long-term customer and that should be reflected in what they are prepared to help you with.
If they do not appear as helpful as it should be, then find another Kubota dealer.
Anyone thinking of buying a Kubota tractor or Kubota mower would do well to get a quote from Kubota for some type of credit or finance arrangement.
They would also be well advised to get alternative quotes from banks and other finance institutions. They can then compare the cost of credit on a like-for-like basis.
Kubota often offers special deals via their company website, and these should be encouraged by the local dealership.
A Kubota dealer will most likely also be able to vary the terms and conditions to your benefit depending upon your credit score rating.
Negotiating with a Kubota dealer is best done online or by phone initially, with a follow-up visit to the dealership in person if necessary. Negotiating online or via the phone puts the customer in control of the process in a way they are not if they visit the dealership.
It is possible to negotiate on the price of the tractor, as well as on other issues such as servicing and maintenance costs and transport of the tractor to and from the dealership in order to facilitate such servicing.
Other possible areas of appreciation can include additional costs such as documentation fees and cost or benefit of any extended warranty that may be available.
A Kubota backhoe is a piece of equipment that is fitted to a variety of different Kubota tractors, and need special care and attention as its attachment to the tractor can generate an element of risk in its usage, and also an element of risk to those in the surrounding area where it is being used.
The majority of the Kubota tractors used either on farms or in agricultural settings or in large garden/land horticultural businesses.
A lot of these businesses have both environments and workforce which are markedly different to those of a standard business, either industrial or office environments, and special care should be taken in terms of understanding the work activity factors that affect the potential risk of injury or damage to either people working on the farm or in the surrounding areas.
There are a number of factors that relate to the safety risks concerning usage of Kubota tractors and Kubota backhoes, and many relate to the type of work hours and work routine that will be found in such an agricultural land led business.
The work environment and workplace in a farm has often been described as somewhat erratic.
This is because the hours can be very long a lot of time, people often working extremely long days, with workweeks of between 60 and 90 hours a week not uncommon.
The other factor that affects the work environment is that of mother nature.
Many people moan about the weather to different reasons, but anyone who engage in any type of work that relies on Kubota tractors notice that the weather plays a huge part in the reality and practicalities of what work can be done and when it can be done.
The nature of the work done on a farm or in an agricultural type environment means actually large extent it is led by the weather.
The other thing that affects the nature of the work significantly is that of mechanical breakdowns of machinery.
Any form or agricultural complex relies on numerous pieces of machinery, many of which is needs are interdependent.
Much of this machinery is quite old and often after a while not serviced or maintained quite as it should be.
This means that machinery tends to break down fairly frequently, and aside from this preventing the work being done that the piece of machinery is related to, often has a knock-on effect on the rest of the work within the farm or agricultural complex
Kubota finance is the overall term given to any type of credit for finance arrangement made with regard for the sale or lease of a Kubota tractor or agricultural piece of machinery.
In many ways Kubota finance is fairly similar that of auto finance, in terms of the nature of credit and lease agreements and the various financial options that tend to exist therein.
Anyone looking to buy or lease a Kubota tractor should really approach it in the same way.
A Kubota leader will have a list price for a wide range of tractors and accessories, most of which will be open to some degree of negotiation.
Whether the customer is thinking of buying anything new or a used Kubota tractor, the basics of financing remains the same.
A credit application will need to be submitted, and a credit rating agency will make a decision about their view of the creditworthiness of the individual, and allocate that individual a credit score.
Based upon that credit score, Kubota credit or some other lender will make a judgement as to whether or not to lend the individual the money for a loan or to fund a lease agreement.
The credit score will not only determine the lenders willingness to lend money or not, but will also affect the terms and conditions of the loan or lease agreement itself.
In practical terms, this will determine the size of any down payment they may be, the interest rate that will be charged for the period of the loan.
Whether the interest rate is fixed or variable, the length of the loan period or lease period, and any charges that may be incurred at the end of the loan or lease agreement.
There are also likely to be penalty charges if the loan or lease agreement is ended early and these should be spelt out at the beginning of the negotiation process.
It is worth remembering from a customer point of view, that not only are the various places of the Kubota tractor and accessories open to negotiation, so in theory are the elements of the loan or lease agreement.
Kubota dealers are normally the first port of call for anyone looking for any type of Kubota credit when they are thinking of buying or leasing a Kubota tractor.
Given the financial commitment of buying or leasing any type of tractor or garden machinery, making sure that the financing is properly researched is a significant part of the process.
There are many good reasons for approaching Kubota dealers, although it is always a good idea to be able to compare financial quotations from Kubota credit with other quotations from financial institutions such as banks and credit unions.
The important thing when comparing financial quotations is to make sure that they are compared on a like-for-like basis.
Kubota dealers will have access to the most up-to-date national deals from Kubota, and may well have their own local deals as well.
This can relate both to the cost of the tractor, and also to various finance turns such as a low interest rate for a fixed period of time, or for certain specific deals regarding servicing and maintenance of the Kubota tractor.
KUBOTA DEALERS CREDIT
When arranging credit, either with Kubota credit or some other financial institution, it is well worthwhile obtaining a copy of your credit report.
A credit report is a document that will be used by a credit rating agency to assess their view of your credit worthiness as individual, and assign you a credit score.
A credit score is essentially a number set on a scale between two other numbers, that reflects this view.
The reason it is important to obtain a copy of your credit report is that you are entitled to challenge or question any information that is either wrong, inaccurate or out of date.
A credit radiation see has to use information that is accurate, and also that normally time limits for how long certain types of information such as bankruptcies, can be used in assessing a credit score.
It is in your interest to make sure that information that is out of date is removed, as this will affect your credit score, and in turn affect the terms and conditions of any credit arrangement, such as size of down payment, interest rate and length of loan or lease agreement.
Anyone thinking of buying a Kubota tractor will need to begin by some type of individual assessment as to what type of work they are looking to do with the Kubota tractor.
The type and level of work that is going to be undertaken should drive the decision as to what type of Kubota tractor would be most appropriate for the work itself.
In the event that this is not easy to ascertain, then the advice of a Kubota dealer should be sought, as they are probably the most reliable source of information that will be readily accessible for the individual to obtain.
It is likely that most people will go straight to a Kubota dealer in order to purchase a Kubota tractor, and while this makes a lot of sense, there are many things the individual can do to negotiate both a good price for the tractor, and a good deal concerning of the service and maintenance costs.
If a purchasing a new Kubota tractor from a Kubota dealer, then the individual should have the benefit of a standard Kubota warranty, which should be available on the Kubota website for inspection prior to purchase.
KUBOTA TRACTOR DEALERS
This can be important because the dealer may offer additional warranties either by way of an extended warranty for the whole Kubota tractor, or on specific areas of the tractor such as Kubota tires, which may well extend the shelf life beyond what would normally be the case.
Any extended warranty should be looked at with great care, for whilst they are normally fairly straightforward contracts in one sense, what they tend offer by way of benefits and the costs involved can sometimes make them unnecessarily expensive.
The other thing to consider with a Kubota Tractor Dealer, is both the issue of what they are willing to offer by way of servicing and maintenance plans and for how long, and also how helpful they are likely to be in terms of you as an individual needing some type of help the transporting the tractor to and from the dealership.
This can apply to both regular servicing and maintenance, as well as help in the event of a mechanical breakdown of the tractor or some type of accident that renders it unworkable.
This issue can be especially important if the Kubota tractor is used primarily as a work vehicle, and if it becomes unworkable that issue of transportation to and from the dealership can become a major issue.
A Kubota tractor dealer should be open to giving you advice about the best way of dealing with such an issue should it arise, and also by way of helping you practically whatever way they are able to.
Anyone thinking of buying a new or used Kubota, whether a Kubota tractor or other type of Kubota product, will need to consider whether they purchase it through a registered Kubota dealer.
There are other alternatives such as another unauthorised dealership, through a private sale, through an online auction such as eBay or privately from another individual.
There are many advantages and opposite some disadvantages with buying from a Kubota dealer, and it is worth having a checklist of what is most important to the individual before making such a decision.
If you are buying a new Kubota tractor or other product, then you will need to approach a Kubota dealer as this is the only effective route to such a purchase.
There are however a number of factors that can influence this decision.
If you live in an area where realistically there is more than one Kubota dealer that you could approach, then it is well worth exploiting that position by comparing the various offers that the Kubota dealers are likely to offer you.
If you do have any Kubota dealers in your vicinity, or only one, then it is up to you to decide how far you are willing to travel in order to obtain a better deal from a Kubota dealer.
When deciding what type of Kubota tractor or other product to buy from a Kubota dealer, it is worth thinking in the same terms that you would if you were going to negotiate buying or leasing a new car or auto from any major car manufacturer.
The principles are pretty much the same. Any Kubota dealer will have a degree of flexibility concerning prices, as well as any special offers that may be available through Kubota itself is a corporation.
As such it is well worth doing some individual research to find out what the true cost of what a kubota tractor is, as well as finding out what the dealership markup is on the tractor.
