    BX 2680, two years in and loving her.

    I would say with chains on all fours that thing would be just about unstoppable.

    Front drive options

    I'll bet you can cut under shrubbery with that thing!

    Bx soft cab

    I had an Original with all the bells and whistles and it served me well. I'd recommend getting the glass windshield but if you put a good coat of Rain-X on it you won't need a wiper. I took it completely off in the summer which was kind of a pain. I've since upgraded to a Curtis hard cab...

    Snow Kubota B7800 I want a front snowblower and subframe but my local dealers are unsure of what I need.

    I'm afraid I have to agree with the others that this may not work out for you. It is MUCH easier to get a tractor already equipped the way you want it than retrofitting it down the road, particularly with an older tractor. Also, a front-mount snowblower is much more complex than a rear mount...

    Super udt2 price shocker

    My original post was the price per gallon. I mentioned the price difference to the parts manager and he though perhaps Amazon was trying to recoup shipping costs, who knows. The transmission filter, on the other hand, was $19.06, cough cough.

    Super udt2 price shocker

    Time to change the trans fluid on my BX2370....Amazon is selling Super udt2 for $69.96. My local dealer, MB Tractor in Gorham, ME, has it for $26.75. I guess you know what I did. It's not often you come out of a Kubota dealership feeling like you've saved money. :-)

    Authorized Kubota Warranty Service Provider? Part 2 of 3

    Wow. I waded through all (or, in all honesty, most) of this and it appears to be a Kubota customer who had a legitimate problem who drove the dealer absolutely crazy with his obsession with detail and minutae. No winners here.

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

    I have the AI2 quick attach and forks on my BX2370 and I don't have the problem you're describing. Interesting to say the least.

    What is the cheapest kubota zero turn diesel?

    "A $13k mower is a dumb choice for a 70 year old man." Not if (1) that is what he wants, and (2) he can afford it.

    ROPS and my apple trees

    Your 240 had no ROPS and probably no seat belt and you survived. Now, talk of modifying the ROPS is met with a fair amount of horror. Times have changed.

    Will 60" deck work/cause problems on a BX1870?

    I had a BX 1860 followed by a 2370. The only difference I could see from a power standpoint was running a wood chipper. I ran the same snowblower on both, no difference. Both used 54" mowers, also no difference. I see no reason why you couldn't run a 60" on your 1870, at least from a power...

    BX suspension seat....again....

    Good info, thanks very much. If it requires that much modification to make it work, I guess I'll pass.

    BX suspension seat....again....

    Thank you ArmyAviatr for answering the question. I too have a tender back and the addition of foam filled front tires stiffened up the ride much more than I anticipated. These seats are indeed pricey, but not out of the question. Your feedback helps in making a decision. Thanks.

    Messicks sway bars for bx

    Absolutely. They also make backing up a trailer much more manageable.

    BX filter relocation

    I would have to disagree. I've had mine for three years and haven't paid it any attention at all when using the tractor and have had no problems. Not only that, the location makes it easy to do a quick visual on the filter. Don't forget that these are small tractors and that really limits the...

    BX filter relocation

    I've had mine for over three years. Best mod I ever made to the tractor. Very stout, haven't hit it with anything....yet. It's a relief knowing I don't have to change the OEM filter any more, and this one is much bigger and of course highly visible.

    Messicks sway bars for bx

    These are similar to the Mark Hodge bars which I have. They work slick. Mark Hodge's have little chains attached to the clevis pins so you don't lose them, and his clevis pins are the type with the spring-loaded ball on the end rather than having to use cotter pins--a slightly more convenient...

    BX Grass collection system compatibility

    The homeowner's association next door to me has a BX2360 with the Kubota grass collection system. They don't care for the grass collection system so they haven't used it in quite some time. They've offered it to me from time to time but I'm not sure I want to be bothered with it either...

    LA243 weight

    OK, I've looked all over and can't find the weight of the LA243 loader. I'm thinking about a new trailer and am trying to calculate the weight of my BX2370, 54" mmm, Curtis Cab, and loader. I've found all the weights except the loader. I"m quite sure someone here knows. Thanks!

    Topheavy BX with Curtis Cab

    I've just installed a hard Curtis Cab on my BX2370. It's very nice, as expected. It also makes the tractor more topheavy, which I expected, but it can be tricky at times when I'm mowing. Do any of you install rear wheel spacers on your cab-equipped tractors to help with this situation? My...

    How to bleed air from cooling system BX 2370?

    I've recently installed a Curtis hard cab on my BX 2370 and am about to install the heater. The instructions say after installation to refill the cooling system and "bleed all air from the system. The cooling system will not operate correctly with air present in the lines." How does one bleed...

    New BX80 Curtis Cab: $3125. Hand slaps forehead.

    How about this?? Kubota BX8 Standard Cab - Curtis Advantage Series This includes the heater. The least I can find one for my BX 2370 is around $4200, and that doesn't include the heater. My understanding is that Kubota offers a factory cab for the 80 series. I wonder what is going here?

    Difference between 2370 and 2370-1

    Difference between BX2370 and 2370-1 Trying to figure out which one I have. It's the last year before they went to the 80 series. Thinking seriously of ordering a Curtis cab for it. Thanks.

    What is this part for my sweeper?

    I just bought a used BX2537A that had no instructions. In spite of that, I managed to get it on the tractor and it works great. It has hydraulic angle and gauge dollies. However, I have a part for it that I can't ID. Any ideas? DSCN2174_zpswo8o8c6z.jpg Photo by teebud | Photobucket

    Kubota BX2537 sweeper questions

    I've been trying to find one of these sweepers used for many years and finally found a very nice used one with the dollies and hydraulic angle. I am completely unable to find an operator's manual for this. Parts manual is available, but no operator's manual. I plan on using it for springtime...

    Sweeper manual????

    Anyone have any leads on a Kubota BX2537A manual? It's the 47" sweeper that attaches to the front. I've had no luck at all trying to find one online....

    Shipping Kubota sweeper from Michigan to Maine

    I've been in the market for a BX2537A sweeper for quite a few years. I really don't want to buy a new one given the amount of use it'll get, but used ones rarely turn up in these parts (Maine). For some reason, I've found at least four in Michigan, one in Toronto. I've never been to Michigan...

    Landpride 4 in 1 bucket for BX?

    This looks like it could be a pretty useful item for my bx2370. I believe it works with either the quick tach or without. Anyone here used one of these? Thanks.... CB5 Series Combination Bucket | Land Pride

    Sputtering BX

    BX 1860 occasionally sputters and dies. I changed both fuel filters last fall and still had problems over the winter. Hoping that I had water in the fuel, I change both filters again. When changing the one underneath the tractor, I figured I'd drain off a quart or so from the tank (after...

    FEL lines refuse to connect. Huh????

    I have FINALLY removed the snowblower on my BX1860 and went to attach the FEL for the first time this spring. None of the four hydraulic lines will click into place. They'll go almost all the way, but won't make the final latch. What am I doing wrong here?

    BX 1860 headlte assembly broken....twice!

    When I did the 50 hour service on my BX, I was doing fine until I went to re-install the lower engine shroud. Wrestled with it just a little bit and broke the headlight assembly, grrrr. I glued it up real nice and a few weeks later whilst mowing it broke again so I bit the bullet and spent...

    BX mower attachment: BLECCCHHHHHH!!!!!

    I've had my BX for three years now, and you'd think that by this time I'd be more skilled at putting the MMM on. Of course, I only do it once a year so I don't get a lot of practice. I just finished up putting it on the for summer, and--what a nuisance. I had a 1970 Cub Cadet that had a mower...

    BX1860 & Salsco chipper--yes!!

    I'm into my third year of ownership with my BX1860, and I've never wished for more power...except I really wanted a wood chipper. I have a large stand of pine trees on my property and boy do they make a mess in the springtime. I have a brushpile that's approaching Mt Vesuvius in size. I've...

    BX 1860 wood chipper decision

    I've had my BX 1860 almost two years now and it's worked out well. I don't regret not getting the one of the larger models except that I supposedly don't have enough PTO hp to power a wood chipper, which I really need. I've researched all over the net and on this forum and today I took a trip...

    Rotary Cutter LandPride 1542 question

    I purchased a used 1542 which was stored outdoors. I'm thinking the slipclutch should be checked to make sure it's working, but I can't figure out how to remove the plastic shroud around the pto shaft to gain access to the clutch. This has to be easier than it looks...I must be missing...

    Rotary cutter for BX 1860

    I have some areas of my property that make me wince when I mow with my MMM...very rough, rocks, etc. I'm thinking of a bush hog type mower for my BX 1860. I've looked at TSC "County Line" 48" (made in India, I believe), $879. I visited my dealer today and looked at the Landpride RCR 1548...

    G2727A sweeper on BX 1860?

    I have the BX 2750D blower with its quickhitch. I'd like to have a sweeper, but wouldn't use it often enough to justify buying a new one. Would the G2727A 48" sweeper, which came off a G2160 tractor, work on my quickhitch?

    First use of snowblower w/o chains

    Got to use the bx with front snowblower the other day for the first time. Having read the opinions about tire chains, I was waiting to see how it would work without them. My first few passes were directly out of the garage down a moderate grade, then reverse to the garage. I did notice a very...

    BX 1860 snowblower fitment

    I'm seriously considering a front snowblower for my BX 1860, and am told that the proper one is the BX2750D. I have found one for sale locally that was on a BX 24. Am I correct that this will also fit on my BX 1860? Included is the quickhitch and hydraulic chute rotator.

    Gotta love it when you break a new piece of equipment

    BX 1860, had it a couple of months. 38 hours. I've had pretty good luck mounting/dismounting the loader, but today was different. I wrestled with it for almost an hour and gave up. When I came back I noticed I'd bent the bracket on the right side. :( Now I gotta figure out some way to bend...
