Basically this with out the off road construction site tires? I just need the bucket in the front, actually technically I don't need the bucket, I need the arms So I can put a fork on the arms to mount a trailer ball to move my boat.

Also how about a gas engine, I am sure the diesel is expensive AF to fix somthing on when it brakes and probably has a DPF and catalyst system.

So, does anyone offer somthing like this that doesn't cost more than my car?

Check out Mahindra.
A guy at work just bought one built to suit his needs.
Bucket on front, Hoe on the rear, & and an auger attachment.

How big is the trailer?  Why not a trailer dolly?  Motorized or not depending on need.

Have you looked at these?

drill powered trailer dolly.

The bigger ones will move a 26' boat with no problem.

I wouldn't buy a tractor without a loader, but if you only want it to move a trailer around, a three point hitch works just fine for that.

They sell a similar series KUBOTA that would suit your needs.

I have one of those.  I don't have the drill adapter, but it still works great for pushing around my <5,000 pounds.

You want a tractor to move a trailer, but you don't want a "tractor" or any thing relating to what makes it a tractor with a bucket....



You can't use a trailer dolly??

The kubota BX you posted can be had with different tires.  Used ones can be found with none of the new tier 4 emissions.  4wd with a loader is nice especially moving a trailer with the bucket on wet grass.  Learned that the hard way.

23 foot boat, 5k pounds or so. The issue is that I move it in the grass sometimes.

I think the wet grass would be an issue, plus I'd have to wear this hat...

No I don't have a riding lawn mower right now, so I would use it to move the boat and cut the grass. I am sure I could find other uses for it too.

I refuse to pay that kind of money for a tractor with loader mounted controls.  Most god awful uncomfortable place for them.  I'll enjoy my tractor mounted joystick

Should be just over $10k without the loader.  List price is like $13k.  You can get a 1025R with a loader for under $20k

KUBOTA loader controls are on the dash pod so neither one of us knows what you're talking about.


Unless you have Raptor arms.......

What is the tongue weight?  Over maybe 4 hundred pounds, you're going to want a bigger tractor.   Unless, of course, you use the 3 point hitch, rather than the bucket.  It can lift MUCH more.  If you're lifting with the bucket, and you pick up the back wheels of the tractor, you're going for a ride.

Neet, thats one model.

BX25 owner.


Link Posted: 4/21/2017 12:03:03 PM EDT
kubota makes them with turf tires also   local dealer has plenty of both turf tires and ag tires

we have a resident member with one who uses the crap out of his

I have a larger B series Kubota tractor but if it ever craps out I think I will step down to the smaller one with turf tires
my yard will sure thank me


ETA: for just moving a trailer just buy a trailer mule
they have them in electric or gas with big tires capable of moving on grass
plenty of plans to build your own if you wish to do so

that's true...maybe I would need a counter weight in the back.

But these lawn mowers are expensive, holy crap.

I saw that 13k, still I can't justify that. Maybe I need to start a landscaping company.

If I went Kubota it was going to be the L series and they had the loader mounted controls.  Just one reason why I went green over orange.

So, here we have a thread where @kubota3430 can legitimately help, and no one tags him. WTF is wrong with you people?
