    Default Re: Wait for the BXxx70?

    Funny how the mind works, was reading the brochure for the current BX line and saw the note about the digital tach and remembered another change. They're going to an analog tach this time around.

    Surely someone on here has better connections with their dealer to take a longer look at the letter I saw. I assume all the dealers got the same one.

    We are all aware that the BX's are inline for replacment this year. I have not seen the rumored spec sheet myself.

    As for discounts, the current programs on BX's are the best they have been in 3 years or so. Upping the antee on these things is $300-500... not thousands. These are low margin / high volume tractors so there is not scads of money thrown around to clean out old inventory. We will sell and order these at the end of Oct.

    Many folding ROPS in the "up position" are taller than a fixed ROPS. I know that was the case when I was deciding on my B7500. The fixed version rolls under a standard garage door opening, the folding one had to be folded down to fit in.

    Fold over ROPS>. If it folds flat with the back of the tractor... Not sticking out like my BX>.. Its about time!!! Thats a big improvement, and one Ill copy on mine once I can see one in the flesh.

    And a real tach.. about time for that too

    How about better lighting front and rear? Aux light mounted on the fenders perhaps?

    I was all over it! Still unbelievable that I was the only one on here who saw this spec sheet a month ago.
