The Kubota RTV flagship is the X1100C. The "C" stands for "cab." It's all-weather, fully enclosed and has unibody construction. Creature comforts afforded by the cab include heating and air conditioning. A segment-best 78 dBA sound-level rating at cruising speed means it's quiet, too. But if that's too quiet, the X1100C is pre-wired with an antenna and two speakers for quick installation of an optional radio.
