My BX24 has been a great addition around the acreage. The backhoe is extremely useful for removing stumps and other things. Tried a friends New Holland of similar size and found the Kubota to have more power in the drive train and hydraulics.
The BX has been extremely reliable and even starts quickly when the temperatures drop. Added a snowblower to this unit to clear 300 yrd driveway; making yard work easy.
Have to use square bales of hay; due to limited front end lift but traded off for the compact size and can even clean stalls with it. Have a mid-mount mower deck that never stalls even in tall grass.
For me this Kubota BX24 was the right decision.
