TORRANCE, Calf., Nov. 2005  Kubota Tractor Corporation (KTC) has reached a retail milestone, announcing the sale of its one millionth Kubota unit sold in the United States. Gary Pittman, owner of a 1,200-acre farm near Dallas in Millsap, Texas, recently purchased a Kubota M125X, marking the one millionth Kubota unit sold.

Kubota’s model M125X was Kubota’s premier entry into the 100+ PTO hp market and was sold to Pittman by Kubota Dealer Ellis Topline Equipment in Weatherford, Texas. With the distinction of selling the one-millionth Kubota Ellis says:  “We’ve been selling Kubota products for 25 years, and we are excited to be the dealer who sold Kubota’s millionth unit,” said Steve Watson, president of Ellis Topline Equipment.  “Gary Pittman has purchased multiple Kubota products from our store, and we’re pleased to see this unit sold to a previous Kubota owner,” commented Watson.

“I purchase Kubota equipment because the products work well and are very efficient,” explains Pittman. “I was delighted to hear that I had been the purchaser of Kubota’s one millionth unit.” Pittman owns several Kubota products including a ZD21 mower, M9000 tractor, RTV900 utility vehicle, and his new purchase, the M125X. 

Kubota Tractor Corporation presented Pittman with a gift in recognition of this important milestone – a “Thanks a Million” travel award to one of 10 resorts or cruises, including round-trip airfare and a Kubota merchandise gift certificate.

“We’re very proud of our one millionth sale,” says Greg Embury, Kubota Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The sale of one million Kubotas since KTC’s beginnings in the U.S. in 1972 is the result of the strength of our outstanding dealer network combined with Kubota’s commitment to offer quality, high-performing, durable products that serve our customers well.”
