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
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.
