MEDIA RELEASE FROM SMITH POWER EQUIPMENT
He adds that the Kubota BX25 TLB is doing particularly well. “They’re compact, powerful, versatile and comfortable making them ideal for the smaller property owner to accomplish a wide range of tasks,” Liebenberg says.
The most recent sale of a Kubota BX25 was to Gerhard Swart of Out of Nature Country Lodge which is situated 30km outside Windhoek on the Rehoboth road. “The BX25D is a well-built, quality product. The engine is extremely reliable and very fuel efficient making the total cost of ownership very low,” says Swart.
He adds that the service he gets from LMG is exemplary. “Any machine no matter how good it is only as good as the support service one gets and, in this regard, I am totally satisfied. LMG always has spare parts available and are always prepared to go the extra mile. Both LMG and Smith Power Equipment, the Kubota agents in Southern Africa, have lived up to their fine reputations,” he says.
Swart says the Kubota BX25 is incredibly versatile. He uses the back actor for digging trenches for electrical cabling, water pipes, drainage system etc; the front end loader for loading and moving sand and rolling compost; the 3-point hitch with various implements for: top dressing, road scraping, fine-seed planting, turf cutting and basic renovation work.
The Kubota BX-Series has been a hit worldwide. While its compactness and reliability are hallmarks that have won the approval of users year in and year out, the BX’s 3-cylinder diesel engine gives it more torque than typical petrol driven engines, providing the power for the multitude of jobs one may require like digging, hauling or ploughing. Also, its hydrostatic power steering gives one the control required for these tasks.
