Kubota aims to become an all-round agricultural machine manufacturer
Kubota has announced that it, is to start work on a tractor factory in Northern France, near Dunkerque, in December 2014. Mass production is expected to commence in April 2015.
The company is investing 40 300 000 Euros in the project. Once fully operational the plant is expected to produce 3 000 upland forming tractors (130 to 1 70 horsepower) per year, for Europe, North America, Australia and Japan.
The Linhai rustler is one of those machines that has really proved itself over the years. Not many budget models have stuck around for as long as this one has – and we’d be very interested to see just how many of these units have been sold in South Africa – and of those units what percentage still work hard almost everyday.
Back to basics:
There is a reason that this quad has done so well. Historically it has never been very expensive and it has proved to be rugged and reliable. Ask any of the thousands of farmers who use them commercially, they will tell you that. Parts are inexpensive and readily available, so that’s also a big plus.
