Kubota Agriculture is to strengthen its farm machinery portfolio with the launch of a range of Kubota-branded implements.
Covers will come off the orange-liveried implement range at the 2017 LAMMA Show. The range of implements will include a selection of disc mowers, rakes, tedders, flail choppers, fertiliser spreaders, round balers and wrappers, which are manufactured and distributed for Kubota by the Kverneland Group.
“This is an exciting time in the expansion of Kubota’s agricultural business,” says Rob Edwards, Kubota Agriculture’s business development manager. “Our vision is to introduce a range of Kubota implements through carefully selected dealers who can support and expand our tractor and machinery business.”
“While we have already hand-picked some of our existing Kubota tractor dealers, there will be further new dealer appointments over the next three years to broaden our network,” he says.
Currently, Kubota has appointed 13 dealers throughout the UK and Ireland already. Among the latest appointments are Vincent Tractors, TH Horn and George Browns.
When it comes to implements, Kubota Agriculture will be offering a range of grassland-oriented machines that have been chosen specifically to compliment the size and power ratings of the MGX-III, M5001 and M7001 tractor ranges.
“It is our focus to give new and existing Kubota tractor owners access to a range of productive and efficient implements that are available through their local Kubota dealer,” Rob Edwards concluded.
