Kubota Tractor has introduced the BX70 Series sub-compact tractors with four models: the BX1870, BX2370, BX2670 and the BX25D.
With improved comfort, convenience and operation, Kubota’s BX series has the power and versatility for digging, hauling, mowing, snow-blowing, tilling and plowing through yard projects.
The BX70 Series features an array of ergonomic enhancements and convenience adjustments.
Cruise control and a deluxe, high-back reclining seat with armrests are standard on all models except the BX1870 (optional enhancement). A new steering wheel incorporates a smaller hub and is positioned closer to the operator for better comfort and visibility.
The dash instrumentation features a large analog tachometer, digital gauges and warning lights. The brake pedal has been repositioned to the left of the spacious, fully flat floor for easier access and simultaneous HST/brake operation. New optional, adjustable, high-output, 700 lumen four-LED lights are available with either fender or ROPS mounts, for significantly better visibility when mowing or working after dark.
All front loaders for the BX70-Series tractors have been upgraded to accept an optional “Quick Attach” system. This two-pin system allows switching from the standard bucket to two new front attachments — 60-inch straight blade or pallet forks. The tractor-mounted hydraulic quick attach remains available, with more attachments such as the 50-inch front snow blower, rotary broom and blades.
The BX70 Series offers a segment-best selection of five different mid-mount mowers — specifically, 48- and 54-inch standard and fine cut mowers and a 60-inch standard mower.
A key differentiator with the 60-inch standard mower is an integrated center-pivot anti-scalp system. With 6 inches of clearance between the ground and the mower – more space than many competitors in its class – the BX-Series easily travels over uneven ground and raised obstacles.
The BX25D’s new BT602 backhoe station is designed with ergonomics in the segment, with integrated steps and an easy entry/exit design, wide, SAE-rated foldable ROPS. In addition, Kubota engineers have added shock-absorbing cushioning valves to the hydraulic circuit to cushion the operator when the backhoe hits its boom or swing maximums. An optional mechanical thumb is also available to make clean-up jobs a snap.
The BX-Series tractors are all powered by efficient, three-cylinder Kubota diesel engines, specifically engineered to work seamlessly with Kubota-designed hydrostatic (HST) transmissions. This integral design offers more torque and a refined power band. The BX1870 and BX2370/BX25D are equipped with 18- and 23-horsepower Kubota diesel engines, while the BX2670 is powered by the Kubota D1105 25.5-horsepower diesel engine. Four-wheel drive with rear-differential lock is standard on all BX models for confidence when working, mowing, snow-blowing or traveling under a variety of terrain and weather conditions.
A foldable Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS), which meets SAE specifications and provides for safe and efficient operation, is now standard across all BX-Series models. The ROPS easily folds down without tools, allowing the tractor to pass under low-hanging obstructions. (Kubota recommends the ROPS be in the up position during most operations.)
