    Loader BX80-Series Loader

    Anyone find real world limitations on the BX 80 Series with the SSQA reducing the capacity over the prior generation? I can’t believe this is a real issue with snow, dirt, mulch, etc. based upon the coordinated bucket size. Just curious. I have a BX2670 and it seems to lift quite a bit more than...

    Mowing Fed Up w/ BX Drive-Over Deck. Making a Change.

    Well, I got a ZT, and it fits in the barn pretty well. After mowing with the ZT for a few weeks now, I’m going to dump my BX2670 with all the attachments, and just go with a B with a loader and rear blade for snow removal. I’ll pick up a used cyclone rake for leaves, hang it on the wall, and...

    Bought a Simplicity Citation XT Today

    I was set on buying a Kubota Z422 with the 54” deck, but really liked the serviceable items on the Simplicity sitting beside it. Well, long story short, I went to drive both the Z422 and a Simplicity to lay to rest my concerns about which would be better on my bumpy yard. There, arriving just...

    Mowing Fed Up w/ BX Drive-Over Deck. Making a Change.

    After digging into this more, the ZT will give me the versatility to dump my BX any time before or after winter. I will have a mower with the ZT. I can’t believe I’ll have any reasonable luck selling the MMM and Bagger alone, unless I give it away. I’m thinking I could do better selling the BX...

    Mowing Fed Up w/ BX Drive-Over Deck. Making a Change.

    I’ve looked at so many options. I think I may buy the ZT first, then consider selling the BX with all the implements I have and buying a B2601 with the loader. I primarily mow 98% of the time, and remove snow in the winter. That’s now. It’s a pain to put the loader on the BX to use the bucket or...

    Mowing Fed Up w/ BX Drive-Over Deck. Making a Change.

    I live in northern Illinois. There are no other options for me besides a tractor for snow removal, so I really need to keep the BX. The wife is more worried about storage of the Z than what it’s used for. I think if I get the Z, I’ll use my tractor more, because I’ll leave the loader on it and...

    Mowing Fed Up w/ BX Drive-Over Deck. Making a Change.

    I considered the RFM, but it would turn my weekly trimming into a much bigger job around trees, and probably require me to buy a push mower to fill in. I don’t think it’d be user friendly on my property.

    Grass Bagger for Kubota BX-24 / RCK54P23BX Deck

    Maybe late to the game, but I have an almost new Bagger for my BX2670. Love it. Edited for years to buy it. Now that I might go zero turn, I may just sell it. If I traded up to a new BX, I’d keep it.

    Mowing Fed Up w/ BX Drive-Over Deck. Making a Change.

    So I finally have had it with Kubota’s BX answer to John Deere’s drive over deck. What a POS. After dealing with the deck not staying level every year, the deck always dropping while mowing (tractor staircase adjuster), the pain trying to get it on, let alone off, and the pain in the $&@%# to...

    Gilson 16 HP Tractor

    Nope. And don’t care. [emoji1787] Funny the latest posters, myself included, don’t necessarily look at the dates. Someone blew the dust off this one.

    Gilson 16 HP Tractor

    That tractor is not original paint, but is the same as the two my dad has. Both are Briggs powered. One is a 12hp, the other a 16hp.

    Meg-Mo swinging blades -- first impressions

    Meg-Mo blades on anything but a zero turn are okay at best. I bought a set for my BX 60” deck. They never left a clean cut. They’d leave small windrows if cut grass. I don’t think the blade tip speed is high enough. After spending $150 on them, they don’t even look good hanging on my barn post.

    If I tilt forks all the way down on BX1880, they won't tilt back up.

    Ahhh. There in lies the problem. The aftermarket forks are not designed for the new loader. Look at the stops on the loader. Unless those are for the stand only. Put a load on the forks. Let gravity pull them down a few inches. I think you’ll find once they drop a bit, it will work. Did you...

    If I tilt forks all the way down on BX1880, they won't tilt back up.

    Looking at my forks, I think the OP’s center pin in incorrectly located. It’s causing the curl past the point on return. Heres mine on Jery Dunn’s Q/A:
