KUBOTA DIESEL TRACTOR
The versatility to tackle a range of projects—the power to take them on confidently. With the BX-Series’ powerful and efficient 3-cylinder diesel engine, the sky’s the limit when it comes to yard and garden projects. But it doesn’t end there. The BX’s 4WD also makes sure you have the traction to haul, climb and escape the occasional rut. Its 3-point hitch allows you to attach the rear implements you need, and the front control valve makes attaching front implements a snap.
DIESEL VS. GASOLINE The Kubota diesel engines nes of the BX-Series tractors have TORQUE several very important advantages over ECONOMY gasoline-powered EASY engines. The principal MAINTENANCE difference is torque. Diesel esel engines offer greater torque, rque, which gives the Kubota BX far more power when mowing, hauling, using the front loader and more. Diesel engines are also less likely to slow down or stall when pushed
VERSATILE CATEGORY I 3-POINT HITCH Put your BX-Series to work with its Category I 3-point hitch. This sturdy, hydraulically controlled hitch allows you to attach a wide array of rear implements. (Optional on the BX25)
QUARTER-INCHING VALVE With increments of ¼” at the lower link end, our quarter inching valve provides easier implement control. The lever guide’s regulator allows smaller adjustments, which are often required when attaching/detaching 3-point mounted implements or when performing sensitive jobs.
BRIGHT HALOGEN HEADLIGHTS
POWERFUL KUBOTA DIESEL ENGINE BX-Series tractors are equipped with 18 and 23 HP diesel engines (BX1860 and BX2360/BX25 respectively), as well as a new 25.5 HP diesel engine (BX2660). These 3-cylinder workhorses offer unparalleled power for tractors this size, and more than enough muscle for all your gardening and mowing duties.
The halogen headlights of the BX offer a clear bright light at dawn, dusk or dark of night. Furthermore, their casing and style have been designed to give the tractor a sleeker look.

FRONT IMPLEMENT 4-POSITION CONTROL VALVE Our standard front 4-position valve (tractor can also be ordered without valve) provides you with the ability to attach the front loader and other front-mounted implements quickly and easily. Furthermore, the valve does not get in the way and gives the tractor a clean and sleek look.
REVERSE AIR FLOW The BX-Series radiato radiator is positioned in the middle of the tr tractor rather than the front. So, airflow is taken in from the th e operator op area and pushed towards the fron front nt of the hood. This reduces overheating, overheat atin ing, prevents grass from getting g in the radiator grill and helps the operator op perator stay coo cooler.

SPACIOUS OPERATOR AREA A The pedal layout on BX-Series tractors ors helps aid operator comfort. The forward ward and reverse HST pedals are split and d the differential lock is located on the left side of the operator platform. This design esign provides a larger deck area, which offers more foot room, eliminating the cramped mped feeling of most other tractors in this class.
COMPACT BODY Though significantly more powerful, the BX-Series tractors are similar in body length to that of a standard garden tractor. This makes the BX easy to drive, and gives you smooth operation even in tight spaces. Despite their compact stature, BX-Series tractors are surprisingly roomy and comfortable.
DELUXE HIGH-BACK SEAT AND HIGH-BACK RECLINING SEAT
Your high-back seat, standard on the BX1860/ BX2360/BX25, provides you with soft cushioning and superior thigh support for exceptional comfort during operation.

A foldable, quick-adjust Rollover Protective Structure comes standard on the BX25. Fold it from 180° to 90° without tools—perfect for passing under areas with height constraints. (Note: Kubota recommends that the ROPS be in the up position during most operations.)
A backhoe that’s tough on jobs, but not tough to use. The BX25’s backhoe is a high-performance excavation tool. It boasts a 20° angle of departure, superior protection for the hydraulic hoses, a curved boom, ample legroom, an easy attach/ detach system and wide sightlines. Add this to the backhoe’s proven reliability and rugged durability, and you have a tool perfect for your everyday tasks as well as your toughest tasks.
CURVED BOOM The curved boom of the BX25 offers ers some real advantages. Its arched design allows you to dig deeper, keeping the boom out of the way of the edges of the excavation area. It also so increases the lifting height.
WIDE VIEW The BX25’s design offers you greater visibility by tucking the hydraulic hoses inside the backhoe boom.
EASY IMPLEMENT ATTAC ATTACH/DETACH The compact backhoe is equipp equipped with a no-tools-required, 4-point attach/detach mounting system. This makes attaching or detaching the backhoe and front loader, as we well as many other implements, a snap.
