Sold the worn-out Troy-Bilt rider, and a 30 year old Yanmar diesel, ...

WOOHOO!  

I just delivered a new BX25 to a customer of mine this afternoon.

I also have a BX myself.

Great little tractors.  Don't let the size fool you!

Nice setup! My dad and I share a L3240 and we really love it. Probably be using the box blade and bush hog this weekend!
Link Posted: 4/28/2011 7:20:38 PM EDT
Congrats! They are surprisingly powerful for their size. Very good power to traction.

I've shown mine off here before, but what the hell!

Those BX25's are awesome.  What a machine.

An FEL is definitely on my short list, just need to get the $$$ together.  All in good time...

That's a good looking tractor!!  What did it cost you?  If you don't mind me asking.  I'm looking at acreage here and need something to work it.

ETA I was wondering about BX25.

Bare BX2660 tractor was $11.2k, then add the implements of your choice.  I'm sure the BX25 is quite a bit more, it comes with a front end loader and a backhoe.

Same here!

The last two BX25's I sold went for $16,700 with the 3 pt hitch kit and R4 tires.

Unfortunately, the next ones I get in have a price increase of ~$500 IIRC.

I have a roto-tiller, box blade (the attachment pictured on the back of OP's tractor) and 60" mower deck.

I've got about $20K wrapped up in it. They were doing the 60 mo./0% financing though, so that made it affordable. Payments are a little less than $350/mo and that includes the mandatory Kubota insurance, which BTW is a very good policy. They may have a similar financing plan going on now if you're interested.

ETA, forgot to mention, the dealer gave me the 3 point hitch (optional on the BX25) and a discount on the tiller.

I got one of those BXs and wish I would have bought the back hoe attachment.

You can get MSRP from the Kubota website.


http://www.kubota.com/product/BX1860/BX1860.aspx





Most people report that you can expect pay ~8-12% off of MSRP depending on your bargaining skills and how your dealer works.


If you can't get a reasonable price from your local dealer there are some internet dealers that will fix you up and ship it to your door.

I bought mine from Grubb implement in Covington, IN. Very nice folks! Kubota is a fine machine. I'd love to sell 'em, what a fun job that would be!

FEL makes the MMM go on a lot easier too, just lift the front tires off of the floor and the MMM slips right under there!

Think of it as a auto-loading, self-propelled, and auto-dumping wheel barrow.

My dad got a 3030(i think) last summer, It was quite hilarious when he managed to launch stones out of the bucket and onto the hood on the first day. In his defense the control stick was way tight so you had to force it to stop moving so that caused the launch.

One of my neighbors was killed last year when he brought a large tree trunk rolling down his hood and right over himself just like that in an

open tractor.  Major cause of death on farms = heavy equipment.

On a serious note, you are correct. Roll overs are the main culprit and reason the ROPS became standard.

Sorry about your friend

Good stab at it; it's a W.R. Long 4-in-1 bucket. Love it!!! Our dealer talked us up from a standard bucket on the LA514 and it was probably the best money spent on the tractor.

Works good with what snow I had left.  I got it post big storm/neighbor assist.  Next season I'll hang the box blade on it for more weight.

Yep!
She's gone now.  But she once caught a squirrel hopping around on three legs.
When she walked it was kind of funny looking, but when she ran she just glided like a dog should.
