Thanks for your review!On the rear Kubota suspension;
Mine is 1st gen rvt 900.
It has a solid beam connecting the 2 rear tires...but is semi independant with leaf springs.
Genious set-up. I'm sure I've had upwards of 2500#'s loaded in the bed multiple times.
You cant do this with the new gen units as they have coil over shock rear suspension.
You would bend the shock or bust the mounts.
No front brakes on the early models so you better be in 4x4 if headed down a hill. just like a tractor.
Hydro drive thats been perfect. Can stop anywhere and hop out for a bit and it stays put....slight creep with a load on a hill.
Bench type seat so ..easy in & out if your making lots of short trips moving dirt/rock /whatever.
Its no speed demon 25 mph downhill in high. Its a work machine. Probly one of the best as far as weight carring and dumping capacity.
Not sure on the bobcat but its likely comparable. If you just have a bit of firewood or brush the other brands are probly fine..idk
At 2000#..it is what it is and fit my needs as I wasn't looking for a Sport machine. I had several hundred yards of dirt /rock to move about 600' downhill. It was is the answer for me .Have other toys to go fast ,jump ,powerslide......Samurai with a V8 takes care of that or the 2 stroke quads.
