From big red iron to Kubota brands, Bane-Welker delivers

Bane-Welker Equipment might be best known for its big red iron, but this employee-owned company also offers big construction equipment and several consumer products including the popular Kubota brand.

After nearly 50 years of putting its precisely engineered orange machines into the hands of America’s farmers, builders and workers, Kubota Tractor Corporation knows something about success.

You might say Kubota has built even more success stories than it has tractors – and it has built an awful lot of tractors.

Kubota itself is an American success story with global roots and a track record of shaping industries, growing businesses, creating jobs and serving communities.

Within that global company is Kubota Tractor Corporation, based in Grapevine, Texas, building machines in Georgia, designing engines in Illinois, creating implements in Kansas and financing dreams across the U.S.

Every morning as the sun wakens one time zone after another, more than a thousand Kubota dealers in local communities coast-to-coast unlock their doors and get to work helping others get to work.

Kubota company employs more than 5,000 people in North America who help bring to market a complete line of tractors of up to 210 Gross horsepower, performance-matched implements, compact and utility-class construction equipment, consumer lawn and garden equipment, hay tools and spreaders, commercial turf products and utility vehicles.

• Tractor Lineup: With machines ranging from 18 to 210 gross horsepower, Kubota continues to strengthen its compact tractor offerings for small agriculture and the residential market. At the same time, the company has entered commercial agriculture with midrange and higher horsepower equipment for the commercial livestock, hay and row crop production markets.

• Turf Lineup: From the compact but powerful T Series to the wide range of residential and commercial Z Series zero turn movers, and everything in between, Kubota mowers are a clear-cut choice with more options, technology, precision and comfort than ever before. Today’s residential and commercial turf lines are designed and built from the ground up with Kubota proven durability for years of reliable service.

• Utility Vehicle Lineup: Kubota utility vehicles are ready-for-anything work machines with the styling, operator comfort, and durability their hard-working users expect. From Kubota’s gas-powered models to its diesel-run RTV-X Series, Kubota utility vehicles offer the perfect combination of beauty and brawn. And, Kubota’s award-winning, gas-powered Sidekick RTV-XG850 is part workhorse and part racehorse with 40 mph of speed and acceleration that blurs the line between work and fun.
