what’s new Kubota’s new RTV Kubota UK is setting the standard in power and versatility with the launch of its new four-seater utility vehicle, the RTV-X1140. The new model, from the market-leader in diesel powered utility vehicles, builds on the popular predecessor (the RTV1140), demonstrating its ongoing commitment to developing exceptional machinery which not only supports professionals in their day-to-day activities, but provides exceptional comfort and safety as standard. Designed to provide greater power and performance, the RTV-X1140 enables operators to easily transport both cargo and crew with its versatile two or four passenger configurations. Users
can single-handedly transform the 1102” cargo bed to two additional back seats in three simple steps, allowing for the safe transportation of four adults. Dedicated to delivering a higher standard of performance across all tasks, its four-wheel drive and unrivalled 10.8” ground clearance enables smooth travel over any terrain, whilst its hydraulic bed-lift makes light work of dumping tasks. The threecylinder liquid-cooled Kubota diesel engine also offers a robust 24.8 HP, supported by its Variable Hydraulic Transmission for increased power and traction.

Introducing the Monarch “Munro” gaiter In 2016 we decided to look into bringing a UK manufactured waterproof gaiter to the market. Many of our customers stated that there were some good gaiters available however they did not incorporate the features to withstand the rigours of forestry, hill stalking and other harsh environments. We are now proud to launch the Monarch “Munro” gaiter which has been developed & manufactured in conjunction with Phil Ogden the renowned sporting bag maker, “Moray Outfitters” have also played a large part in field-testing and gaining feedback from their large network of estate Ghillies. The “Munro” gaiters are made from a durable & quiet material called “Alcantara”, military Cordura was considered, however the general consensus is that Cordura can too noisy. The Alcantara outer material is “Fluro-Carbon” treated to ensure water repellency. Behind the Alcantara there is a 2oz seamless waterproof & breathable liner which prevents condensation build-up inside the gaiter.
Quality zip with Velcro front cover and top & bottom press studs. Elasticated ankle grip. Draw string and toggle knee hem. Double rivet front lace hook. Sturdy cord heel fastening supplied with each gaiter – from our research Pro Stalkers who wear gaiters every day do not like the strap design of heel fastening as this becomes detached in time, also quad bike riders state the belt strap fastenings can snag on foot bike foot-rests. Large & XL sizes available. Introductory price of £64.95 + £3.95 p&p (normal price £69.95) Available from info@ monarchcountryproducts.co.uk
