Small Tractors, Big Features

Kubota introduces its new BX70 Series sub-compact tractors with four ready-to-work models: the BX1870, BX2370, BX2670, and the BX25D.

“The focus of improvements to our latest version of the BX Series tractors was to enhance the operator experience, specifically in comfort, convenience, and versatility,” says Dan Muramoto with Kubota.

All-New Operator Experience
Cruise control and a new high-back reclining seat with armrests are standard on all models except the BX1870 where they are available as an optional enhancement. A new steering wheel incorporates a smaller hub and is positioned closer to the operator for better comfort and visibility. The 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 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 Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) mounts.

Increased Versatility
All front loaders for the new tractors have been upgraded to use an optional Quick Attach system. This two-pin system allows quick and easy switching from the standard bucket to two new front attachments: a 60-inch straight blade and pallet forks. The BX70 Series offers five different mid-mount mowers, including 48- and 54-inch standard and fine cut mowers and a 60-inch standard mower.

The BX25D’s new BT602 backhoe station is designed with integrated steps 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 system and an optional mechanical thumb.

Efficient Power
The new BX-Series tractors are powered by efficient, three-cylinder Kubota diesel engines engineered to work with Kubota-designed hydrostatic transmissions. This integral design offers greater 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.

Safety First
A foldable ROPS, which meets SAE specifications and provides for safe, efficient operation, is now standard across all BX models. The ROPS easily folds down without tools, allowing the tractor to pass under low-hanging obstructions.

Base prices range from $9,924 to $19,339.
