Kubota Spray Cabins – a significant differentiating factor
Veteran tractor expert, Kubota SA’s Mike Heath, warns that South African farmers are not taking seriously enough the importance of a well-designed, safe tractor cab which conforms to the international safety standards. “This is most especially important with cabs of spraying tractors,” says Heath.
A body stripped naked would undoubtedly cause much consternation at South Africa’s premier agricultural show NAMPO.
