TORRANCE, Calif. — Kubota Tractor Corp. recently introduced its new BX70 Series sub-compact tractors. The four ready-to-work models are the BX1870, BX2370, BX2670 and the BX25D.

With improved comfort, convenience and operation, Kubota’s popular BX series has the power and versatility for digging, hauling, mowing, snow-blowing, tilling and plowing through yard projects, big or small.

“The focus of improvements to our latest version of these best-selling BX Series tractors was to enhance the operator experience, specifically in comfort, convenience and versatility,” said Dan Muramoto, BX and RTV product manager for Kubota.

“Whether you are simply mowing the lawn or giving your property a complete landscaping makeover, these rugged and versatile machines will get the job done, more comfortably and more easily than ever before.”

The new BX70 Series features an array of ergonomic enhancements and convenience adjustments. Cruise control and a new high-back reclining seat with armrests are standard on all models except the BX1870.

A new steering wheel incorporates a smaller hub and is positioned closer to the operator for better comfort and visibility. The new, easy-to-read 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 4-LED lights are available with either fender or ROPS mounts for better visibility when mowing or working after dark.

All front loaders for the new BX70-Series tractors have been upgraded to accept an optional “Quick Attach” system. This two-pin system allows quick and easy switching from the standard bucket to two new front attachments: 60-inch straight blade or pallet forks.

The popular tractor-mounted hydraulic quick attach remains available, with more attachments such as the best-selling 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, which helps minimize or eliminate scalping or marking of customer lawns from deck protrusion.

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 integrated steps and an easy entry and exit design; wide, SAE-rated foldable ROPS for enhanced visibility; a deluxe, high-back reclining reversible seat; and easy-to-reach levers and controls for extended comfort while operating.

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. A new optional mechanical thumb also is available to make cleanup jobs a snap.

The new BX-Series tractors are powered by three-cylinder Kubota diesel engines, specifically engineered to work seamlessly with Kubota-designed hydrostatic transmissions.
