The most important years in Arbos history:

1826

FIRST STEPS The Bubba family’s epic opens in a small workshop in Santimento (Piacenza, Northern Italy), where they start manufacturing farm implements. Here in 1896 Pietro Bubba realizes its first work: a shelling machine. With the help of the sons (Federico, Salvatore and Artemio) in 1896 Pietro creates his first threshers.

1923

THE FIRST HOTHEAD BUBBA ENGINE In 1923 Ulisse Bubba, son of Federico, made his first hotbulb engined tractors, mounted on CASE wagons: UTC 3, UTC 4 and UTC 5 (U = Ulisse; T = Tractor; C = CASE). In 1926 the UTB 3 tractor (25/30 HP) was born: it is the first tractor 100% Bubba.

1929

UT5, THE MOST POWERFUL EVER BUILT HOTHEAD In 1929 arrive the prototypes UT2 and UT3 (the latter an improved, lightened version of UTB 3, led to 25 hp) and UT5, the most powerful hotbulb tractor ever built: its engine is a twin, derived from the coupling of two horizontal cylinders of UT3.

1936

THE FIRST TRACK TRACTOR In 1936 the first crawler tractor, the C35, based on UT6; it was also called UT6C. Two years after Bubba Corporation produces ARIETE (37/45 HP), first tractor Bubba designed not by Ulisse, but by engineers Emmanueli and Giorgi.

BUYING ARBOS, BICYCLE FACTORY In 1952 Mr. Lodigiani buys the bicycle factory ARBOS (acronym from Araldi and Boselli, the two founders) in San Lazzaro (Piacenza) and moves the plant to Santimento. Here Arbos starts producing combines, the first prototype mounting a MT 52 Deutz air-cooled engine. MT 100 A and 100 B follow, this latest being the version for rice.
