Nestled between the east-facing slopes of Constantiaberg and False Bay in what is known as the “Cradle of winemaking” you will find Constantia Uitsig; a vineyard that has a long and rich history that dates back to the mid-1600s as one of the first wine-producing estates in South Africa.
And what better way to celebrate this wine estates rich culture and growth than with the purchase of the new Kubota B1241 Tractor, the first addition to this established wine estates fleet.
The decision to purchase the new Kubota B1241 tractor with turf and farm tyres was made by Danna De Jongh (General Manager and Vintner of Constantia Uitsig) and her team. Because of the versatility of this multi-purpose tractor it will be used between vineyards for spraying and for general maintenance of the estates gardens. The purchase decision was also based on the tighter turning circle and manoeuvrability of the Kubota B1241 thus reducing the time it takes to complete tasks as well as fuel consumption.
The Kubota B1241 tractor has also proven to be ideal between the narrow spaces in between vineyards because of its compact size as well as its impressive 21.5 Hp. Kubota E-TVCS engine which provides increased power, higher torque, cleaner emissions, and low noise and vibration which is ultimately better suited for vineyards and orchards.
The high-efficiency power steering of the Kubota B1241 tractor also eases manoeuvrability and creates a more responsive control, particularly in soft ground. The Kubota B1241 tractor also sports a vibration-damping mechanism that increases comfort and reduces fatigue when working long hours which makes for a powerful addition to any fleet and will now form part of many vital operations at Constantia Uitsig Estate.
The multi-functionality, power, and adeptness of the Kubota range has proven to be the perfect choice for orchardist and viticulturist looking to take their farming to new heights.
