The tractor has been developed to suit a wide range of user requirements, ideally suited for use by golf clubs, landscaping professionals, local authority maintenance and for the management of professional sports facilities.
Adrian Langmead, Business Development Manager for Kubota’s Groundcare division, commented: “Our ride-on mowers and compact tractors have always been popular with maintenance specialists working in the turf care and landscaping sectors, so the launch of the Grand L40-II Series will further enhance our position in this sector as we continue to invest in new product development.
“Kubota has been a market leader in groundcare products and Saltex is a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase to visitors just how versatile our machinery is for use in areas such as sports stadiums, large estates and public parks.”
Also exhibiting at the two-day event is the 34HP STW 34 tractor, designed specifically to take on an extensive list of jobs ranging from mowing to loading work.
