Market Harborough-based Euromec has launched an LPG fuel option for the Kubota RTV500 utility vehicle. LPG offers clean power without the downtime and cost associated with electric power and batteries.
The Euromec LPG powered RTV is the result of development driven by customer demand. Under the front bonnet is a refillable LPG tank (pictured above), plumbed and wired into the vehicle’s main systems. On the dashboard, controls tell the operator how much fuel is available; the RTV can be switched to petrol if there’s no LPG. Refilling the LPG tank is easy using the nozzle mounted just under the front bumper.
Apart from using the refillable LPG tank, the RTV can also use LPG from a bottle. In the front right-hand corner of the load area a simple bottle mount and fuel line make fitting and changing a gas bottle simple.
When considering a clean fuel utility vehicle, battery power is often the only choice. However, this LPG option offers better running costs, whole life costs and cold weather performance. It has the added benefit of 100 per cent availability as it doesn’t need recharging.
Operators also benefit from the LPG choice; cab heaters are available and much more effective, more power means gritters, pressure washers and attachments work harder for longer.
This carefully engineered LPG fuel option for the Kubota RTV500 is only available from Euromec, and doesn’t infringe the Kubota product warranty.
