Re: 2017 Kubota BX Models Introduced

A nice shiny new loader tractor sure would look nice in my garage, Al. Wish I could figure out a way to justify one!

Re: 2017 Kubota BX Models Introduced

I know the feeling Mike. I am thinking about updating, just for the new features, but there is absolutely nothing wrong with my BX. I would have to buy all new attachments because nothing is compatible with the new models.

Awe, c'mon Al......can't take it with you, you only live once, you've earned it, it's only money, why work if you don't enjoy the fruits of your labor.........

Hey listen, if you get a new one.......can I have your old one?

.....just call me Ellis

I was abandoned as an infant and raised by a family of opposums........does that explain things?

They say you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but I've always had my best success with a dead squirrel

Want to see what happens when you join parts from about 6 GT's, farm tractors, walkbehinds, ship parts, push mowers, trailers, scrap air compressors, CNC lathes, junk refrigerators, tread mills and more? If so, check out me and Mike's most excellent Gravely Custom Build and Adventure Thread

Re: 2017 Kubota BX Models Introduced

Ellis, I have been using that line on my wife for years. I've worn it out.

Sure I won't charge you any more than the new one costs.

Eric, at the rate you are acquiring tractors, you will get a FEL soon enough.

Oh Al, You make me all icky with this blatant attempt to get the great big deep discount by doing their PR!
But if it works I'll take the Snow blower off your hands for my BX25. Let Eric and Ellis duke it out for the rest. Wait a minute, give it to Eric. Since we live 20 mins from each other we can pick everything up in one trip. Sorry Ellis, but like Eric says you already have the BX25, the 2600, oh yeah, and the Cub LoBoy plus too many others to count.

Sounds like someone had a little too much blizzard walk behind his snow blower.

Re: 2017 Kubota BX Models Introduced

Theres a lot of things to like about those new BX's. I like the dash best with that big tach smack dab in the middle. #2 would be the FEL with skidsteer style quick connects and not having to leave the seat to mount/dismount. #3 would be the clean way the 3rd function integrates.

As for the BX23S designation, I believe we old BX23 owners will need to double check our part numbers when ordering/buying to make sure we will get the correct part for the correct model BX23. May be some confusion if not careful.

Gotta say that grill guard looks like something out of Ultraman LOL.

Re: 2017 Kubota BX Models Introduced

Those same features are what attracted me Dave. It would be nice to be able to actually see the tach without straining my neck, and my eyeballs. Quick-connects on the loader- excellent!

They could have picked a different name for the BX23s. Perhaps Bx2300?
