    New Kubota BX Series (BX1880, BX3280, BX2680, and BX23S)

    We got a very good interview with the Kubota product manager.

    I think Levi and Dieselshadow were about to defect on the spot!



    Unfortunately, the video focuses on us more than on the tractor. ...I guess you could see what Christy thought was important!
    Anyway, Robert shares some great information on the new BX line. Enjoy!

    Great interview/video by all 4 of you. We looked at the kubota I thought closely but none of us noticed the reclining seat back. I just assumed it wouldn't have it, sure hope Deere takes note of that. I don't expect it to be a freebie with a JD, I will happily pay for it if they would just give me the option. I have owned Kubota's but all of them were mid to late 90's and early/mid 2000 models, Kubota has clearly come a long way since then. I received excellent service from the kubota tractors I owned and although I maintained them by the book, I treated those tractors extremely rough. Always running them at and often far over their stated capacity, they sucked it up and took the abuse like a champ. I don't see myself turning away from green, but it is very nice to see kubota stepping up and addressing the items I considered issues that turned me towards John Deere.

    Hmm. I could really use a backhoe. Kubota dealer 1.2 miles from my house. If my 1025r has the mower and all the other attachments already, I could get a 23s as a dedicated TLB. Two tractors are better than one right? Although adding a backhoe to 1025r probably cheaper than a 23s.

    Nice video guys. Informative and insightful.

    I've never seen a Kubota tractor in person so this was a nice little primer. From what Tim brought up it looks like they are stepping up their game. Loved the cab option - but I just can't see a cab without A/C - which I know would probably be difficult with these small tractors.

    There is a Kubota dealer 65 miles away vs. 90 for a Deere dealer..........

    Edit to add: just went to look at these tractors on their website - nothing. Did a Google search and all that comes up is this thread. I guess maybe we are more passionate about our green than the others are about their orange?

    Funny, why would Kubota make the original press release back in Oct '16 in their soon to be new home in TX, then not have them available on their website?

    Wow Tim, I didn't know you're trying out for the comedy club.

    Christy knew there wasn't much else. The cab had good weather stripping on the doors but the one thing I liked about that tractor was the seat. I'll leave it at that.
