A firm favourite for industrial engines, Kubota combines excellent fuel efficiency with plenty of power and minimal emissions - an advantage for any company that's eager to keep their activities as environmentally friendly as possible. Designed to run quietly, even when working towards the extremes of its capabilities, this sucker truck has plenty of capacity for speedy operation.
