On the heels of Ohio State University’s 12-1 football season and Fiesta Bowl victory, Dunkirk, Ohio, resident Larry McCloud in January received the keys to his new, Ohio State-customized Kubota RTV500. McCloud was the lucky winner in the “Buckeye Kubota Dealers Kubota RTV500 Giveaway,” and took ownership of his new RTV during a special presentation at Kubota dealership Streacker Tractor Sales, Inc. in Findlay, Ohio.
“I never win anything,” said McCloud when asked about his stroke of luck. “I’m a big fan of the Buckeyes and of Kubota equipment, so to win a Buckeye-customized Kubota RTV really is the best of both worlds for me.”
McCloud was randomly selected as the winner from more than 2,700 entrants in the giveaway. Ohio residents were asked to visit their local Kubota dealerships to participate.
“I saw Larry in our dealership picking up filters for his Kubota tractor one day, and I encouraged him to enter the contest,” said Tom Streacker, co-owner, Streacker Tractor Sales, Inc. “I’m happy for his big win and proud to know that the RTV500 will go home with someone we know will really appreciate it.”
From hunting and hauling, to routine work around the jobsite, Kubota’s RTV500 is a versatile workhorse. The compact footprint of the gas-powered, 15.8-horsepower utility vehicle allows it to fit into the bed of a full-sized pickup truck. Available in four-wheel-drive and two-wheel-drive configurations, and either Kubota Orange or Realtree Camouflage, the RTV500 features an extensive list of optional accessories and implements.
