Hey, I too just ordered the RTV1100 Camo Kubota and am excited to get it! Has anyone found an option to mount Side Mirrors on this thing?

Gary,

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your RTV.

I don't believe it's been covered here but has been on one of our sponsor sites.

Welcome to Forums Forums. Congrats on your RTV. One of my neighbors just got one and they sure do look versatile. I have not looked that close at them but I'm surprised Kubota does not have a mirror already added to them.

Thanks for the welcome and input!

BTW: This Kubota is replacing my 2009 Polaris 700 HD. I bought it last December and while the B.O.S.S. plow system worked well in the snow (no heated cab though so it was cold here in Utah) the real problems with my Ranger began when I took it off roading this last month up Millville canyon...

This canyon would be described as a fairly easy uphill off-road test for pretty much any ATV/RTV, but after about 10 minutes on the Polaris 700 HD, our seats started getting very warm (the motor seems to be located almost directly underneath the seating area.)

At then end of our half hour ride, our butts were so hot that we were sweating, plus the design of the Polaris Ranger was such that we noticed dust and heat being 'blown' into the lower area of the riders cab during our trip (my father and I had to both beat the dust out of our clothes when we returned home), and everything, the dash, console, controls, seats, etc was caked with a thick layer of dirt....strange considering we had a partial hard cab on the vehicle.

So after $300 more spent on a half-height 'summer' windshield, and removing the back portion of the cab as well as drilling a bunch of 2" holes in the armor plating that had been installed on the bottom of the Ranger for extra venting, we took it back onto the same dirt road to give it another try...end result, the exact same problem, tremendous heat and large amounts of dust were blown through the small center opening directly under our seat in the cab area, and our off-road experience was such that we quickly returned home, and I posted my Ranger for sale the next day.

Another thing that really bothers me about the Polaris Ranger HD is that when you try to achieve higher speeds (anything over 25 MPH) the engine loudly whines like you are stuck in first gear (yes I was in 2-wheel "High") and it's almost impossible to carry on a conversation with anyone, or even enjoy the ride, with that much noise present...I've had the vehicle into the dealer probably 10 times in 5 months to address issues like this, and each time they would tell me that there was nothing wrong, that these things were normal for the Polaris HD, lol...

I'll bet I spent $23,000 on that Ranger...but cannot recommend anyone else buy one until the engineers at Polaris spend a little more time at the drawing board as my 'off-road' experience with my over-priced Ranger just made me angry!

Anyway, I had a chance to test drive a Kubota 1100 and immediately was impressed with how much quieter it ran than the Polaris, and of course Polaris can't even begin to compete with the enclosed air-conditioned and heated cab...something I consider a must after having to hose myself down after a ride off-road on the Ranger.

Anyway, I'll post any reviews (good or bad) on the Kubota once it arrives, but based on what I've seen so far...it is in a different class than anything Polaris currently offers...

Gary

Can anyone tell me were the speakers are located at in the 1100?
I have a 2006 900 and my neighbor has the 2007 1100.
I think it is a 2007.
Anywho I could not find them in his 1100.
He wants me to put a radio in it.
Am so glad I found this site about the radio connector.
Save me alot of time trying to find no adapter so I'll just splice in before the connector...so he can still keep the orginal adapter there.
I just can't find were the speaker are if there is any on maybe the first year of the 1100.
Any help would be helpfull or I'll have to go to the dealer and see were they are.
And how good are the factory speakers if they are there?


BTW...Anyone want to buy a 900 with 95 hours on it with cab, heater and plow?

I want a 1100 myself.
Thanks....Art

The speakers are in the ceiling towards the front of the cab. If you look closely with a flashlight, you can see them. They are 'okay'. You can hear them fine, but you won't mistake them for high quality audiophile speakers. All you have to do is hook your radio up to the existing wires behind the dash.

I'm hesitant on asking this question for fear that I might trade my 900, but what price are you guys paying for the 1100 camo with the cab enclosure?

My salemans is on vaction but we talk a little and the price he gave me on the 1100 with the blizzard blade on it and extra lights, turn signal hazard kit and maybe a radio.....was about 23,000 to 24,000 with the tax.
They have to come out and look at my 900 for trade in but said around 10,000 to 12,000 with trade in.

Not cheap in my book but what is anymore.

Best part is zero percent rate for 4 years right now.

$24k is pretty close to sticker price on my Dodge Dakota quad cab 4x4, and significantly more than I actually paid for it!

Did they give you a price without the extras? As I recall, people are paying about $15,500 - $16,500 for an '09 model.

Should have asked what they give you for your 900 on trade?

Mine has a Curtis Cab enclosure, heat, and hydraulic dump bed. He said probably around $9000 in trade, but without seeing it in person, it's hard to give a trade in value over the phone, which I can understand. Even still, if they gave me $10K, I'd still have to come up with $7000 difference. I just don't see $7000 difference in mine and theirs. Mine only has 182 hours.

Art,

What state are you in? Never heard of a state requiring registration and insurance and then dropping it. If you borrow to get it, the lender is going to require insurance.
