"We are a commercial beef farm and own over 250 acres. Here at the house we have about 2 acres with a small barn to care for some of our livestock. We use this Kubota for mowing, cleaning out the barn, moving things around the yard and landscaping. I burn about 25 face cords of wood in our outside wood boiler and use the BX25 to scoop up and put the wood on the concrete near the boiler in the fall and it does the job very quickly. We also installed a huge in-ground pool a couple of years ago and did all the back filling with it. After clearing a woodlot, I seeded and fertilized the 30 acres with this Kubota because I was able to go around and in between the stumps.
It is nimble but quick, smooth, and very powerful for it's size. It's also been trouble free and I've really worked it much harder than I've ever expected to when I purchased it. You will be very happy with this tractor!"

Kill Switches (Safety Switches)

"Shortly after buying, the tractor stopped dead. After many hours and burning out my gauges by accident, I discovered the issue was the safety switches under the seat (I had checked those earlier and they looked fine, and unplugged and re-plugged them, but something was not "quite perfect". My chance, eventually I did "wiggle the right place!
I found your help regarding "fuel filter" issues very useful! Fixed my slow running/cutting out issues!
Terrible, cheap design! Yep, Kubota saved $1 and created room for competitors to move customers to them and away from Kubota! "Save a $1, lose $100 million!" (hmm)."

"For a small machine it continually amazes me by being capable of doing anything I make it do. It is the right size for our property (6 acres) and fits into places larger tractors won't."

"I have used a lot of tractors in my day. I have to say that the BX 25 is a great built tractor. It works great for what it was built for."

"This machine is everything it is advertised and more. The backhoe dug out what a friend's Deere 760 could not. That tractor is a class bigger and could not dig out what this little monster did.
The loader lifts more than I could have hoped for. I have a lot of rock and had some 4-ft. round rock that probably weighed around 5 to 600 pounds. This machine got it up off the ground about a foot and moved it well. I am glad I got a better deal on the BX instead of the 1 series Deere. "

"The machine always starts. It can't lift the load with the bucket while pushing into a pile because they only use one hydraulic pump to run steering, transmission and hydraulics.
The hydraulic controls are vague and sloppy. Front tire was flat when delivered by Pine Bush Equipment and it kept going flat until it was fixed. Front steering mechanism is exposed to damage if you get into deep dirt or other material where rocks can hit it or other environmental hazards---it is too low to the ground. No valve stem guards on the rims."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: The machine always starts.Cons: Hydraulic power is lacking to the point of being unreliable.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA NYI also considered buying: Kioti CK27, Ford-New Holland 1320, John Deere 1025R REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
