LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Kubota Tractor Corporation introduces an addition to its popular RTV-X Series line. The new RTV-X1140, featuring an innovative Kubota K-Vertible cargo conversion system, transforms the vehicle with minimal effort and time from two passengers and a large cargo bed to four passengers and a cargo bed.

“The RTV-X1140 has a unique ROPS design that makes it easy to convert from crew to cargo,” said Eric Goins, Kubota RTV product manager. “With the RTV-X1140, Kubota offers industry-leading cargo capacity and comfortable seating for four adults in three simple steps—when you need to move your crew, swing in the cargo bed sides, fold the bed up, and flip down the rear seat—conversion is quickly and easily performed by just one person.”

The new five-point ROPS design increases RTV-X1140’s workhorse characteristics allowing for more cargo volume and side loading. The RTV-X1140 also comes standard with hydraulic dump bed with 19.1 cubic feet/9.9 cubic feet capacity, two-seat and four-seat configuration, respectively.

Power When Needed

The RTV-X1140 is powered by a 24.8-hp Kubota liquid-cooled diesel engine, work-proven for dependable performance even in the harshest terrains. With convenient tilt steering and simple inline shifting, the RTV-X1140 has a variable hydraulic transmission that offers wide torque band and large oil cooler that boost performance and durability. Front and rear independent suspension on all four wheels ensures a truly exceptional ride enhancing drivability and handling in most off-road conditions. And Kubota raised the bar on ground clearance with the new RTV-X1140, offering a full 10.8 inches of suspension travel with the ability to glide over bumps and rugged terrain.

More Comfort

The RTV-X1140 offers standard and optional features to enhance productivity and operator comfort. Options include alloy wheels and a factory-installed bed liner to protect the cargo bed from dirt and damage. Driving comfort comes standard with an ergonomically-designed, split-bench style seat designed to provide hours of smooth riding.

The RTV-X1140 offers a digital meter cluster with bright, easy-to-read indicators to keep the operator informed of critical driving conditions, including speed, hours, and miles traveled. Secure lockable storage is king with a large glove box on the passenger side and under-seat storage compartments beneath the split-bench seats to provide convenient storage space for tools, tie-downs, and personal items.

The RTV-X1140 debuted at GIE+EXPO and began in November to Kubota dealers nationwide.
