    TTWT Kubota BX / Deere 1-Series Comparison

    We are attempting to create a complete and thorough comparison of the Kubota BX and Deere 1025R.

    Here is the first episode in that series. Of course we are biased, but we are doing our very best to provide objective information and to clearly state areas of opinion.



    Your feedback is appreciated. What areas would you like to see reviewed? Do you know of specific items that need to be called out on either machine?

    Thanks for your help!

    I watched this earlier today. Nicely done. Does the Kubota have a mechanically linked deck to the 3 point? If so this may be the reason you had to keep pushing down on the draft control. Deck wasn't allowing the 3 point to go down far enough.

    one thing I never liked about the BX 23 I owned....well 2

    single cylinder for curl
    shorter tires

    Looking at the Vidio..."pic" above...theres clearly a massive size difference. (bucket ,height of tractor)

    Whatever...I'm happy with my 2 kubota's..and happy with my 955

    I'll look at anything with no brain or emmission components.

    JD 955 ,70A loader, 60" mmm , Original I-match ,4' woods B hog , 5' Box blade , 12' orchard plane/driveway grader ,various other doo-dads & homebuilt implements. Goossen BFBlower, JakeRake..this thing is different.
    Kubota U-15
    Kubota RTV 900

    47 8n......good times..V8 in my future possibly

    This was by far one of the most honest comparisons I have seen to date.

    Its still not going to stop me from going GREEN but, it was nice to see the differences in a real world situation instead of a sales pitch.

    Missed something VERY important

    I mentioned in the comments that you may have missed something. The JD 1025r has different 3pt hitch arm geometry depending on how you mount them. One way lifts higher than the other. Tim, can you reverse them as update your findings in your next video? I find this a great feature of the Deere. It gives me options. Thanks for what you do!

    Yes, I will try that. (I replied to your comment on YT).

    I'm not sure which way mine are configured. Unfortunately, since the 1-series lost BOTH the lift height and lift capacity tests, reversing the lift arms will still result in a loss, as this reversal is trading height for capacity.
