The Turf Utility rides on 25-inch turf tires, while the Worksite Utility is shod with heavy-duty worksite tires. Kubota has also added several new items to the line of accessories available for the RTV900 line, including clear or tinted windshields, 3,000- and 4,000-pound-capacity winches, a heavy-duty hydraulic blade, storage box with gun and tool rack and orange or camouflage thermoformed hard cabs. Kubota’s RTV900 Work Utility and Turf Utility models feature an exclusive hydraulic utility system with a remote valve that powers eight new heavy-duty hydraulic tools to break concrete, cut lumber and brush, prune orchards, drive posts and perform other tough tasks.
Specialized to handle any job, Kubota’s RTV900 exclusive power source is customized for optimal convenience and go-anywhere versatility. It has a five-gallon-per-minute (gpm) pump capacity as well as a dedicated hydraulic oil cooler and reservoir to keep tools running at peak performance. This week a senior Ford of Europe engine specialist came out and said that ever-more draconian emissions regulations in Europe (Euro 6+) may drive up the cost of developing cleaner diesel engines in the future, and that may position cleaner petrol engines as more cost-efficient for the industry to produce, and customers to buy.
As the European governments face tighter borrowing limits, they may not be able to continue subsidizing diesel!
However, while one Ford Motor Company engineer says diesels may die, the same company (in a joint-venture partnership with Mercedes-Benz) is spending many millions of research dollars developing Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs); but we know that setting up a distribution and re-fueling infrastructure for hydrogen gas from scratch may well be cost-prohibitive. The other consideration about FCEVs is that the process of creating sustainable quantities of hydrogen gas consumes a hell of a lot of electricity.
Most commonsense scientists in the energy sector tell us that we only really have two cost-effective choices of creating electricity - coal-fired generators or nuclear generators. You can, for the moment, forget about producing electricity from renewables - wind, waves and solar.
Not only that, we know there’s a lot of resistance to wind turbines for one, on the grounds that they may cause illness from low frequency noise, and they cost a bomb to erect and maintain.


This way we consume slightly less petroleum, and take advantage of technologies that allow regenerative power to come from braking etc. The car industry is simply reacting to ever-increasing limits on carbon emissions by governments worldwide, which are driven by the wishes of the voters.
Just like listening to the opinions from five lawyers in the same room, there are very mixed views on exactly HOW MUCH automobiles contribute to the carbon cloud.
I am not espousing the idea we should ignore carbon emissions from cars, and just keep driving until we run out of petrol, but at some point we should question whether the cost (to go ‘electric’) is worth the benefit? It must be incontrovertible fact that the ancient world never had to deal with the amount of carbon we humans now pump into the atmosphere at the moment, or in the centuries to come, so I think it is a good idea to look at ways of reducing carbon emissions. The developed world is sitting idly by whilst developing countries chop down their forests, in many cases to produce palm oil, used in processed foods, cosmetics and plastics! The Porsche 918 Spyder is well on its way to production, which is scheduled to start in September 2013. The 918 Spyder is designed as a plug-in hybrid vehicle  which offers both astounding performance and fuel efficiency. The new Turf Utility and Worksite Utility vehicles also feature a hydraulic utility valve as standard equipment to accommodate Kubota’s expanded line of implements. Both units feature an industrial-grade, high-capacity air cleaner mounted near the top of the cage, designed so that the engine draws the cleanest air possible in dusty work environments. Kubota has added an Easy Range Shift Assist Mechanism–by depressing the brake pedal and pulling the shaft assist knob, gear changes are made more easily. Kubota’s exclusive hydraulic utility system features a remote valve that is conveniently located at the rear of the vehicle, allowing the power source to go to where the task is.


Remember too, that nearly ALL European governments subsidize the cost of diesel, to encourage most car owners to buy diesel cars. Less trees means the world can’t cope with ever-increasing carbon as effectively as it did in the past. The 770 hp machine delivers fuel consumption in the region of three litres per 100 km (78 MPG). The hydraulic utility valve has the power to drive such tools as a salt and sand spreader, sprayer, concrete cutter, chainsaw and posthole digger. Kubota’s engineers also boosted the reverse speed reduction ratio by 17% to give the RTV900 models increased torque for extra traction in adverse working conditions. The prototypes signal the final stage to the 918 Spyder’s development, and at the moment the focus is on the integration of the sophisticated drivetrain components.
The valve, with a 5-gpm pump capacity, includes a flush-face quick coupler, oil cooler with electric fan and high-capacity oil tank. As you can imagine the successful marriage of a 4.6 litre V8 engine and two independent electric motors – one on the front axle and one in the drive line, acting on the rear wheels is not something that can be figured out over a long weekend.
The new models also feature a hand throttle that allows the operator to increase engine rpm while operating the tools.
