    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...

    Kubota BX2670-1 w/ Many Extras (Illinois)

    Kubota BX2670-1 with 335 hours. Beautiful condition. Not abused. Well maintained. Frequent maintenance schedule followed. Residential use only. Hours are current, and may slightly change, as tractor is being used. Tractor and Accessory Package includes the following: 1) Front-End Loader w/...

    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...

    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:

    3 pt rear blade stand?

    Just buy a piece of black pipe that sleeves in. 3/8” or 1/2”. Screw a cap on top. Screw a base mount flange to the base. Drill varying holes for height. Put in a clevis pin. Done.

    Cyclone XL vs Kubota Bagger

    Interesting. I went through the same process two years ago and bought the bagger for my BX2670. To me, the cyclone is only good if you have wide open spaces. The 8 foot swing behind the tractor takes out many things if not paying attention. The only drawback to my bagger is it fills quickly in...

    Ordered a set of R14’s for the BX

    Yes, increased ground clearance. See photos for diameter difference. They do not tear up the grass, but do ride tough at full psi.

    Best Used or New Budget Riding Mowers

    Thanks. She’s a good girl. After the BIL left her with three girls to feed his 5’-2” syndrome, she’s been trying to get her ship up righted. It’s been a difficult. I was ready to buy her a mower, but she argued with me and started to get emotional. I’ll find other ways to make sure she’s okay...

    Best Used or New Budget Riding Mowers

    Thanks everyone. Sis decided to go with a Cub Cadet from Tractor Supply. Price was $100 less, reviews everywhere were 4-1/2 to 5 stars, and Tractor Supply lists about every part on line. After having a small engine business for about 9 years when I was young, I’ll just fix anything she needs. I...

    Best Used or New Budget Riding Mowers

    My sister is in need of a riding mower for her city lot. I’m not big on MTD, and I’ve never heard good things of the made for big box store John Deere riders, either. I’m a bit shy of recommend she buy a used Troy Built, Husqvarna, Cub Cadet, Murray, etc. knowing they are likely repaired...

    Just pulled the trigger!

    Your choice. Your money. I think between the receiver, latches, and quality for a long term investment, I’d be all over Jery’s QA. Plus, Jery’s movable forks are much lighter than any others, and are tough. I’ve move a lot of full tree trunks well over what I should be lifting, and have no...

    Just pulled the trigger!

    The AI2 is over $525. I don’t think Jery’s is $700-$800. I do know Jery’s is much more robust, and the latching system is second to none. There is no movement when the outer latches are locked. The 2” receiver would be worth $200 to me alone. It’s a saving grace for all sorts of tasks, as well...

    Just pulled the trigger!

    Sorry I’m late to the game here. I’ve had a couple of Jery’s quick attach setups, and currently have one on my BX2670. I will say without a doubt, this is the best part of my tractor. I switch between the bucket and forks regularly, and it is perfect. BTW, I have Jery’s forks, too. I think I...

    Goodyear/Titan r14t tires

    I posted a few weeks back about putting them on my BX2670. Haven’t used them much to make a complete assessment, but they do look tough. Not sure if they will be the only tire, just yet.

    What's for supper???

    I bought a Smoke Daddy cabinet smoker just after Covid hit. The owner, Dennis, is top notch. Answers calls on Sundays and Holiday weekends... personally. Quality is second to none. If parts are needed, they go out the same day. I searched for two years. My last smoker had minimal space. I can...

    B2601: Removing Front End Loader without the Bucket attached?

    Please post your findings on the B-Series and the cement block. I would bet dollars to donuts that a cinder block won’t be enough weight. I’ve had several B’s, and with my B2620, a cinder block wound not have mattered. As mentioned, a blank SSQA plate would be best, and weight could be added to...

    Bx1850 with blown axle seals

    Did you recently change engine oil? Just asking. Last year, I did on my BX2670. I thought for sure I blew a seal like you, but turns out, the front main was passing oil because I filled the engine to the full mark. It doesn’t like it. Everything pointed to the power steering. It wasn’t. Just...

    54” MMM VS. 60”

    I passed on the tractor and will keep my BX for a few more years. Messicks has a good video on the BX decks. The 60” seems to be the best option for BX decks today, although they both are really stout. For the B2601 I was considering, the 54” would have been a blunder for me. Trimming inside...

    How do you prep for future power outages?

    You are right on that. My dad put a 20Kw unit in about ten years ago. According to him, he put a caliper on the incoming line after shutting down for a day. Even with two big heat pump units, several fridges and freezers, he was only drawing a few kilowatts. I agree the perception of load is...

    How do you prep for future power outages?

    Jeesh. Picking pepper out of fly dung. The term whole house generator has been and always will define a generator that replaces power to the same capacity of the panel it services. If you have a 200 amp service in your house like I do, and the generator provides the power necessary to power...

    Ordered a set of R14’s for the BX

    Tlj87 those look good. My R14’s sure rumble on pavement. I don’t recall how my R4’s were on my last BX2660, but these are tough. I noticed better traction in my yard today pulling my 5,500# travel trailer. With turfs, I’d have spun.

    BX filter relocation

    Not really. Very similar to other tractors. Guess it’s like anything... gotta pay attention. On the BX, it’s not much worse than the stupid HST fan. Be careful.

    BX filter relocation

    I’m not sure why Kubota has two filters on the BX other than covering themselves due to a poorly designed filter system that utilizes poor filters. After have a small engine business for 9 years when I was young, the Kubota filters aren’t much better than those used on a lawnmower or snowmobile...

    BX filter relocation

    I’ve had mine sitting here since fall. Haven’t had time. I endured gelling this winter, which I believe to be an issue with the first factory filter sitting right at the hydro fan getting a steady stream of ice cold air being drawn to the tranny. I will get my new filter installed before the...

    Ordered a set of R14’s for the BX

    So the outer bead on the front tires sticks out, while the outer bead on the rear tires is no worse than the turfs I replaced. The R14’s are substantially heavier than the turfs, and on my asphalt driveway, you feel the rumble. It’s not bad, but certainly not like smooth turfs. I have not...

    Buying Advice Anybody buy/install or review an atvcabs cab for a BX? (2370/2380)

    I’m in the market for a cab for my BX2670, as well. I’ve looked into all. Frankly, I think the ATV cab with some realistic options, was like $5800. That’s more than any cab I looked at. I figured I can buy several original tractor cabs for the cost of any hard cab, and for a few months of use...

    Ordered a set of R14’s for the BX

    I’ll get them mounted on the BX tomorrow, but I’m surprised at how much taller they are than stock, despite the same size designation. With my last BX2660, I had both turfs and R4’s, and the R4’s were noticeably smaller in diameter than the turfs. Only thing I’m not happy about with these R14’s...
