Kubota RTV 1100
Interested in one of these. Would love to know if anyone has one and what they think. Not trying to do real muddy trails or anything like that. Or go real fast.
I've been driving one at work on a daily basis on the North Slope for 2 years now. Good points: The heater works well up to -35. Colder than that, the windows start to frost up a bit. On hot summer days, (very few) the air conditioner works exceptionally well. Bad Points. If your on a slick road and your foot accidently slips off the gas pedel, the engine braking is so brutal, you might end up doing a 180 if your not ready for it. It has low grond clearance so I get stuck in an 10" snow drift. It uses almost a full tank of deisel in 12 hours of idiling and minor use. WOT with a tail wind, top speed is 25 MPH.
Would I own one? If I worked on a farm and was using it as a work horse, yes! If I would own one for hunting, fishing and playing in Alaska. NO!!!! We personally own a Ranger XP LE and really like it. Hope this helps. PM me if you have specific questions.
You need to clear some pm space. Apparently Kubota has addressed some of the braking issues with coming off the accelerator.
Cleared my box! The engine braking is quite agressive to say the least.

The Kubotas we have at work were purchased from United Rentals in Anchorage but they don't service them. We have 2 mechanics here at Alpine that work on them that I know of. Both of them live in the Valley. If you want, I will ask them if they are interested in working offline while they are home n R&R if you need help. Took lots of searching on the internet to find that avatar. Looks alot like my first dog as a kid minus the peg leg.
