Farmers across Dorset got the chance to put Kubota’s latest machinery solutions to the test at EG. Coles’ Drive and Ride event.
The machinery dealer invited hundreds of existing and potential customers down to the Gillingham and Shaftesbury Showground to try out Kubota’s range of agricultural and groundcare machines.
Star of the show with visitors was Kubota’s recently launched M7001 Series, a brand new range of tractors that for the first time takes Kubota into the higher horse power tractor market.
The powerful and heavyweight M7001 range is the biggest and most efficient tractor the Japanese manufacturer has ever built, designed from the ground up to meet the requirements of professional farmers.
Available in three horse power models (130HP to 170HP) and either in standard or the premium Kubota Variable Transmission (K-VT), the M7001 has a number of market leading features like best in class lift capabilities on front and rear linkages (3900kg front and 9400kg rear), excellent visibility with a four pillar cab design, great ride quality with dynamic front suspension and a spacious and well laid out cab to maximise operator comfort and control.
Steve Read, Branch Manager at EG. Coles, commented: “We are a long standing dealer of Kubota tractor and groundcare machinery and have build up an excellent reputation for providing market leading machinery solutions to our customers, backed up with first class aftersales support.
“However, much like Kubota, the launch the M7001 Series offers us an exciting new opportunity to grow our business and target customers that we previously couldn’t because they need bigger machines. With solutions now up to 170HP, it really is an exciting time for our business and we look forward to working in partnership with Kubota to demonstrate the features and benefits of this new range to our local market.
“Drive and Ride events are a great way for our customers to try out all the latest machinery and we were delighted with the numbers, enquiries and feedback we got from the event.”
