    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Ordered a set of R14’s for the BX

    Just about fed up with the turfs for any off-grass work... especially with the loader. The sidewalks are too soft, and I notice the tread and sidewalks are easily susceptible to nicks and scratches. So, I ordered a set of R14’s for the BX. Looks like I’m the pilot here, so I’ll post after they...

    54” MMM VS. 60”

    Any thoughts on 54” over the 60” deck? Besides being able to get closer to weed beds with a 60” because it sticks out further, or getting through narrower openings with a 54”, am I missing any pros or cons of either? This would be on a B2601. Thanks!

    Price Check Supply/Demand Doesn’t Seem Right

    So, for grins, I thought I’d check the used market on tractors, since I have a few friends looking for used units, and it seems the market is bare. Now, I’m not John Thomas, but I’m kind of his red-headed stepchild in terms of quantity of tractors traded, so I’ve done this a bit. I have a good...

    Oil & Fuel BX Fuel Gels Up Despite Additive

    I had the same problem with my BX2660, and now my BX2670. When it’s really cold, like single digit cold, the fuel gels up regardless of additive. I put plenty of Power Service in the winter blend fuel from the fuel station, and that did nothing. Then I added Opti-Lube snd let it run for 30...

    Anyone Mount Mirrors on Their BX WITHOUT the Loader?

    I’m wondering if anyone has found a reasonable way to mount mirrors on their BX without the loader attached. I’d like to add a set for plowing, but have the front blade with the quick attach sub-frame installed and not the loader. Magnets on the hood seem to produce shaky vibrating mirrors...

    Mowing Rear Grooming Mower VS. MMM

    I’ve all but exhausted my interest in the drive-over deck for my BX2570. It’s a major PITA that will not allow removal or installation like the standard deck, and despite how easy it looks to remove and reinstall, I most always have issues. So, I’m wondering how much difference I’d find with a...

    Oil & Fuel BX 2670 Oil Blow-Off

    Does anybody know if there is an oil blow-off port or breather that would release oil if overfilled? I changed oil in my tractor, and shortly thereafter, it started leaking. Since the oil was clean, the drop here or there resembled hydro fluid. I thought it was the power steering. Well, after...

    Raised Garden Beds

    My back may be killing me from hustling wet treated 2x8’s and bending over and squatting to build these puppies, but I can’t imagine what I’d feel like shoveling and moving all the dirt to fill them by hand. The BX may be small, but it is a lifesaver. I still have a bunch of regrading and...

    Mowing Any Love for the BX Drive-Over Deck?

    After several years of ownership, I’m not finding any love for the drive-over mower deck on my BX2670. I find it more cumbersome to deal with the drive-over alignment sub-chassis that stays with the tractor, that I’m thinking of ditching the mower for the standard deck... or trading it off. More...

    DR Power Products - Worst Customer Service

    After owning a DR trimmer for four years, I needed some parts. I ordered on line, a little irritated that the three things would fit in a padded envelope, but I would get screwed paying $17 shipping for a box of air. Oh well. Sign of the times, right? After a week of being run around, and...

    Splitting Belgian Pavers

    Has anyone used a landscape block splitter to split Belgian pavers with success? The concern is taking a 6 inch by 9 inch paver 2 and a quarter inches thick and splitting it on each end to make trapezoid shaped pieces to make them fit a radius. Basically, I’d be splitting a wedge off each end...

    BX80 Series Hydro Improved?

    Do the 80-Series BX’s still have the rolling issue with the hydro when taking your foot off the hydro pedal? I almost took out the corner of my barn yesterday with my 70-Series. Just curious if Kubota resolved this issue with the new tractors.

    Buying Advice BX2670 Quick Hitch Mid-PTO

    I am in the process of buying a used front snow blower for my BX2670. It is missing the mid-PTO shaft to the quick hitch. I can’t seem to locate the correct part number I need, to try and find a used shaft setup. Any part number information would be appreciated.

    Loader BX2670 Hydraulics Question

    I just put a front blade on my BX2670. It's the quick hitch type, not the FEL mounted blade. It smokes the FEL mounted blade in EVERY way. No more traction issues, side-walking, feathering the loader controls to maintain traction. My question is about slow return on angling one way over the...

    Snow LX280 Snow Plow Manual

    I have a friend who purchased an LX280 with a plow, bagger, and mower. Unfortunately, no manuals came with the unit. Right now, he is trying to get the plow hooked up, and with box of brackets and pins, he can't get the plow attached and the lift system figured out. Would any of you have a...

    Snow BX 80-Series Blade on a 70-Series

    It's getting difficult to find the BX2763A front blade and frame for my 70-Series tractor, and used ones are either gone before they are posted, or are too far to make the drive worth it. Knowing I'll likely trade to an 80-Series down the road, I'm wondering if anyone has put an 80-Series front...

    3-Point Hitch Landpride QH05 and QH10 Rear Snowblowers Compatibility

    I am considering a quick hitch for ease of hooking up a Heavy-Hitch for ballast and receiver use (Deathtoblackberries confirmed QH10 already), Landpride 1560 rear blade, and Kubota rear 51" blower. Question is, the rear blade is marked quick hitch compatible, but what about the blower? It's a...

    Snow Old BX Front Quick Hitch VS. New 4-Point

    Anyone have first hand experience with both that can provide insight of one over the other? I'm looking to either add a front blade to my BX2670, or move up to a BX2680. Doubt I'll ever look at a snowblower, so the new front shaft coupling is of no real concern. Lots of talk here about using...

    Oil & Fuel Old 850/950 Issues.

    Dads got an old John Deere, which I think is a 950. Been a while since I was in his shed. He complains the temp gauge only works when it's cold outside. Never when it is slightly warm or hot out. Any idea what it could be? Also, I'm not a testing guru, but his fuel gauge stopped working to...

    Snow Land Pride RB0560, or?

    I purchased a King Kutter 60" rear blade for my BX2670 for assistance in snow removal. I haven't picked it up yet, and am wondering if the Land Pride RB0560 would be better. Some claim the KK is cheap and welds break easily. Both weigh about the same. The 15-series LP is another $150 for...

    Snow BX2670 w/FEL Blade for Snow. Ugh!

    Two years trying this combo on my BX2670. Useless. On a paved driveway, I have no control. No steering. Angle the blade, and ALL bets are off. I don't care to blow a front axle with chains. Is this just a poor combination because the tractor is so light? Last year I had the rear blower on...

    Rake Any Other Use for Pine Needle Rake Before I Sell It?

    Tires Popping a Tire Bead

    Tires BX Turf Tires and Loader Work

    Spare BX Tires & Wheels... Ouch!

    I had a set of R4's and Turfs for my last BX. After I bought the R4's through the Kubota whole goods for under $300, I never used the turfs again. The R4's were gone on grass, and offered front tire support when using the loader when the turfs almost ride off the rim. Well, stupidly, when I...

    3-Point Hitch BX Rear Implement Shaft Issues

    I put my B2789 rear-mount blower on my BX this weekend to test and cut the driveshaft. I noticed that in the highest lift position, which I can't guarantee I won't reach when snow blowing, the lobe on the blower coupler at the tractor hits the lower link stabilizer brackets where attached to...

    BX 2670 or BX2670-1???????

I have the standard vertical ROPS and the drive-over deck. The dealer paperwork says "01", but where would...
