    I agree.The ROPS on my BX2360 is plenty high when mowing under trees.As far as folding the newer ROPS,it sticks out the back when folded.It should be designed to fold 180 degrees.When I had my BX25, and mowed with it I found the ROPS too high and when folded it stuck out the back and could catch on trees when turning,if you weren't careful.If kubota wanted to add a folding ROPS to the BX tractors,I think they could have engineered something better than just using the one designed for the BX25.To me the height of the ROPS looks foolish on the BX 70 series tractors.The new ROPS is the main reason I would not want a 70 series BX.

    On my BX25 it's attached to the swivel seat.

    What is wrong with the way the loader currently comes off the BX?

    Just went on the kubota site; the "Build Your Own" option now has the 70 and D series posted.

    Nothing is wrong with the current set up on the loader. Comes off and on easy enough for me.

    I believe on the new setup the loader still goes on/off in the same manner. The difference is in the end of the loader arms, you can quick attach different implement directly onto the loader arms.

    Nor have I but I would think that you could use the same hydro setup with power angle on the new quick hitch.

    I think with the kubota BX you have to remove 2 pins and on the JD 1 series you flip a latch, either is easy enough.

    What I meant is on the Kubota BX the new and old loader arms attach the same way (the 2 pins), on the new 70 / D series, also from the bucket with the new quick hitch. I wasn't comparing the JD, sorry about the confusion.

    I understood what you were saying I was just saying they both attach easily.
