This approximately 300-acre (approx. 1,200,000㎡) facility, the largest of Kubota's R&D centers, includes a turf farm, a high-speed vehicle test course, a trail course, and a vehicle test site including a digging field. It also has a bench testing facility with a low-temperature test building capable of testing M8 tractors, which have the most horsepower among Kubota’s tractors.
