Across Twitter and Facebook, fans will be in with a chance of winning a range of prizes by sharing the story of a day in the life of their machine.

Fans will be able to upload a photo of their machine on the Kubota Facebook page or on Twitter using the hashtag #MyKubota until the competition closes on Sunday 28 June.

The first 30 entries will receive a Kubota merchandise set, including a beanie hat and cap, and five finalists will be shortlisted for the second stage. Here they will compete to win £500 Virgin Experience Days vouchers and become the new face of Kubota with a video case study. A video production team will shadow the winner for a day in order to capture their machine in action and learn more about how it’s used.

As part of the campaign, Kubota will be releasing a series of case studies on their YouTube channel, giving viewers another glimpse of other end-users operating their machinery.

Kubota said that the grounds team at the Beversbrook Sports Facility in Calne, Wiltshire, has been using a Kubota RTV900 for five years, helping it to win IOG NGB Grassroots Sports Grounds Team of the Year in 2013 and be a runner up in 2014.

Set in 94 acres, the site includes fifteen football pitches, a floodlit hard court, four tennis courts, cricket square and two outfields; all used by local schools and sports clubs.

Head groundsman Adam Witchell said the Kubota RTV900 has been used by the council for eight years and is central to a range of activities including spraying, transporting turf and seed, towing, line marking and drag mounting.
