Start with the strength and versatility of a compact utility tractor. Blend them with the agile handling and feel of a garden tractor. Add new upgraded features, then reinforce the end product with incomparable reliability, and you've got the Kubota BX-Series. Powerful Kubota Diesel Engine: BX1860 tractor is equipped with an 18 HP diesel engine. This 3-cylinder workhorse offers unparalleled power for tractors of this size, and more then enough muscle for all of your gardening and mowing duties. Hydrostatic Power Steering: A standard feature on all BX-Series tractors, power steering makes steering practically effortless, thus reducing stress and fatigue. Deluxe High-Back Seat: Your high-back seat, standard on the BX1860, provides you with soft cushioning and superior thigh support for exceptional contort during operation. Reverse Air Flow: The radiator of the BX-Series is positioned in the middle of the tractor rather than the front, so airflow is taken in from the operator area and pushed towards the front of the hood. This helps reduce overheating, prevents grass from getting in the radiator grill and keeps the operator cooler. Bright Halogen Headlights: The halogen headlights of the BX offer a clear bright light at dawn, dusk or dark of night. Furthermore, their casing and style have been designed to give the tractor a sleeker look. Hand Rails: The BX series comes standard with hand rails. Metal Hood/Fender: The BX series comes standard with a metal hood as well as metal fenders. Versatile Category I 3-Point Hitch: Put your BX-Series to work with its Category I 3-point hitch. This sturdy, hydraulically controlled hitch allows you to attach a wide array of rear implements. 2-Pedal HST Operation: When frequent changes in speed and direction are needed, HST responds with its smooth operating forward and reverse pedals, leaving your hands free for steering and implement control. Spacious Operator Area: The pedal layout on BX-Series tractors helps aid operator comfort. The forward and reverse HST pedals are split and the differential lock is located on the side of the seat. This design provides a larger deck area, which offers more foot room, eliminating the cramped feeling of most other tractors in this class. Quarter-Inching Valve: With Increments of ¼ in. at the lower link end, our quarter inching valve provides easier implement control. The lever guided regulator allows smaller adjustments, which are often required when attaching or detaching 3-poInt mounted implements, or when performing sensitive jobs. Digital Tachometer: The BX-Series tractors feature a digital tachometer that offers operators precise monitoring of engine revolutions, especially when operating the PTO. When the engine is off, the digital tachometer displays the hour meter. Cruise Control: For carefree mowing of large spaces, set the BX-Series' cruise control to maintain a constant speed without keeping your foot on the forward pedal. (Optional on the BX1860) The BX Series tractors also come standard with: Rigid ROPS (Roll-Over Protective Structure), Deluxe Lever Guide, Cup Holder, and a DC Outlet.
