I bought mine as a tool.

Its an early Kubota RTV 900

Will haul 2000# of rock/dirt in the bed and dump it. Has hauled many many yds of material. just shy of 500 hrs.

Its no speed demon...27mph downhill...17 up hill ..lots less in low range.

Its a 2K# machine...not a dune hopper...more of a tractor.

New version is different..just L&H...Mine is L M H
has diff lock and filled tires.

I just filled the fronts.

When I was demoing one of these back in 05 ish.

Hauling rock way out back. Had to turn around and back down a hill to dump.

Went to hit reverse and caught Nuetral....by then it had rolled a few feet and I Hit the brake pedal as these will only shift when completely stopped. Being on a slope with a load....The buggy rolled over backwards end for end. Dumped the load and I rolled out the side while it was on its lid. It continued to roll back onto its wheels and took off through the brush backwards coming to rest some 100' down the Hill against a Fir tree. Put a bit of a V in the tailgate but I fixed that. It was still running so I ventured down the Hill and hoped back in and drove it up and out. Back to the gravel pile for a somewhat smaller load. Used it all weekend and decided there pretty tough machines and Bought the Camo version the next week. So yeah the frontend can get light as the motor and trans are under the bed.
