Re: new BX 80 series

Looks like the t/L/B goes from a BX25 to a BX23? Why did they do that?

probably to make it clear the TLB is made from the 23 hp BX2360 not the 26 hp BX2680 (25.5 hp).

the original BX TLB in 2000 was the bx22, and had 22 hp. The next version bumped up to 23 hp, so it became the BX23, the next 3 versions were then BX24, BX25, then BX25D to correspond to the BX2350, BX2360, and BX2370, all 23 hp. But to call the newest version the BX26 makes it look like its a BX2680, so they went back to BX23S, the S distinguishes it from the old BX23. just my guess...

I thought this thread would generate more activity. Seems like not as many people on MTF as there used to be.

Lots of folks read more than they post. I saw this thread yesterday and checked out the link. I'm always interested in new models, but my BX25D is only 2.5 years old and I can't justify replacing it when I only just passed the halfway point on the 5 year 0% loan.

I mostly just read stuff too, but new models are news worthy. My 1860 is 6.5 years old, few hours short of 500 hrs, but looks brand new, not scratch on it anyplace, so not at all thinking of replacing until it has several thousand hours. Also until they do a real redesign with something really better, the 60 series is still my favorite version because of the ROPS design, I much prefer the shorter non foldable ROPS on the non TLBs.

Kubota should ask me about the BX6 I designed in my head. It's a inline 6 cyl. D6 motor. 2 D722s put together, 360 deg out of phase so it's perfectly balanced, detuned to keep it below 26 hp, idles at 800 rpm, PTO rpm 2400. If they came out with that with the non foldable ROPS then I would trade in.

Re: new BX 80 series

My 1860 is also in perfect condition, but I would have to say, this Fast-Tach design sounds appealing.

Quote:
A new four-point hitch is on the front of the models, and the standard Category I 3-point hitch is on the back, which makes attaching any of the many Land Pride implements simple. Every one of the tractors includes an easy-attach, mid-mount mower available with a fine-cut or standard-cut deck.
Because of the Swift-Tach systems on all four models, it isnít necessary to leave the operatorís station to attach or to remove loaders. A single-lever hydraulic disconnect will let you disconnect all four hydraulic lines at once.

I agree it sounds interesting, but depending how they did it might not be better, could be more complex less reliable... I can get my loader on and off in about 30-45 seconds, not exaggerating. Getting off seat to disconnect the lines is nothing to me. So hard for me to imagine its really much better for more complexity.

The new designs are not always better, for example the new drive over deck with ramps I think is inferior. I can get my deck on and off way faster than the drive over fiddling with those ramps. And it leaves behind the mounting bracket which reduces ground clearance, which is the reason I take off the deck in the first place. So the drive over deck to me is a real negative to me. Simple is sometimes better. That said I, can see why people that aren't that strong would want the drive over.

In a lot of ways I think the 60 series was near perfect, they fixed a lot of flaws in previous models, and are now adding features, if they mess with it too much they could mess it up.

swapped front tires side to side this am, just to even out the wear and check for leaks, first time I had them off, wiped the dust off, going to be a while before this machine is worn out.

Re: new BX 80 series

Looking at your axle, you really do have a clean tractor.

The 60 series did address several problems. I don't like the drive over deck either...too much trouble. The hardest part of attaching the deck for me is connecting the drive shaft to the mid PTO. When they are aligned just right, it slips right on and locks. Getting it to align is the problem. I have found that moving the PTO selector to the rear position helps, as it unlocks the mid PTO shaft.
