KUBOTA GARDEN TRACTORS

What are Kubota Garden Tractors ?

Kubota make a wide range of tractors specifically for residential and smallholding use that they refer to as Kubota garden tractors, or Kubota lawn tractors.

These types of tractors are also sometimes known as Kubota lawnmowers and Kubota ride on mowers. They come with a variety of different engine sizes and specifications, and a wide range of different models.

Kubota also make a range of garden tractors known as zero turn tractors or zero turn mowers.The main difference with a Kubota zero turn mower or Kubota zero turn tractor is essentially that they have two levers that control the steering as opposed to a single steering wheel.

This allows a considerable amount of manoeuvrability around tight areas of land, and allows the Kubota garden tractor to cut and mow land much more effectively in tight areas, rather than a traditional Kubota tractor.

Some Kubota garden tractors have a technology called glide steer, which is a technology unique to Kubota.

It allows more traditional Kubota garden tractors to manoeuvre tight areas of land and areas of land that are difficult to mow much more effectively.

Kubota Garden Tractors – Safety

Kubota garden tractors come with a traditional Kubota engine, with varying sizes of horsepower depending on which Kubota model of Kubota garden tractor you buy. Kubota garden tractors come with a new HST transmission, which allows you to control the Kubota garden tractor with a single pedal on the floor of the tractor, which makes it much easier to control.

Kubota garden tractors also come with hydrostatic power steering, which is an important feature of any piece of agricultural or industrial machinery. This is not simply about operator comfort, although that is important, but it is about safety in terms of reducing driver or operative fatigue.

Driving a Kubota garden tractor can be hard work, not simply in terms of the physical use of the machine, but also in terms of manoeuvring a lot of different types and terrain differentials of land.

Kubota garden tractors will have different sizes of mower decks, but whichever model of Kubota you buy, they are designed to be easy to raise and lower, depending on the type of land that the Kubota garden tractor is being used on.

It is also possible to buy a mulching kit, that is an option on a number of Kubota garden tractors.It is also possible to buy a catchall grass catcher as an optional extra.

This grass catcher sits behind the driving seat of the Kubota garden tractor, and allows you to collect a significant amount of grass in it before you have to stop mowing.

The operative area of the Kubota garden tractor has been designed to provide maximum comfort and safety for whoever will be driving it.

There is a significant amount of legroom available, as well as a number of design features such as a hydraulic mower lift lever, an easy reach cutting height adjustment dial, a comfortable height back seat and cruise control as an optional extra on some models.

Kubota Garden Tractors –  Zero Turn

All the driving information and levers that are needed on a Kubota garden tractor are designed to be easily used and accessible without any real strain on the operative. This is important when the tractor is being used for a significant period of time, as is likely to be the case with a Kubota garden tractor.

Kubota garden tractors can also be what are known as a zero turn tractor.A Kubota garden tractor that is also a zero turn tractor will have two operation levers instead of one single steering wheel.

The operator will control each lever with one hand, and can move them backwards and forwards. This effectively allows the operator of the Kubota garden tractor to manoeuvre much more easily around tight areas of land such as trees, flower beds or any piece of land that is difficult to access in a safe and easy manner.

Kubota Garden Tractors – Kubota BX series

Kubota make a wide range of tractors that can be used for a variety of different work.

The term compact tractor tends to refer to tractors that are used for a number of applications that could be considered smaller non-agricultural or industrial work. This normally refers to using the tractor for a lawn or garden, for like material handling, or for towing of other small vehicles.

Kubota compact tractors can also be used very effectively for grounds maintenance, for gardening or small plot of land landscaping, for various types of large or semi large vegetable gardens, and the various types of home and commercial use.

The Kubota BX series consists of three main types of estate tractor that are used in various types of smallholding work. But Kubota BX 1860, the Kubota BX 2360 and the Kubota BX 2660. Always three Kubota tractors are what would be termed Kubota compact tractors and range in engine size from 18 hp through to 25 1/2 hp.

The Kubota BX 1861, 18 hp Kubota diesel engine, is two range HST, is either two wheel drive or four-wheel-drive, and has a category one three-point hitch. All Kubota tractors run on their own Kubota diesel engines, and these have a distinct advantage over gasoline engines.

There are two main advantages. The first is that diesel engines, especially Kubota diesel engines offer greatly increased torque over gasoline engines and give the tractor a much greater pulling power.

This is especially important when looking at compact tractors, because often they usage means that you need relatively quick bursts of power to go round organ pieces of land or up or down slopes or hills.

Kubota Garden Tractors – ZG Series

The other advantage of a diesel engine, is that according to Kubota they used typically between 20 and 30% less fuel than a similar gasoline engine. Apart from the obvious financial advantage, and other advantage is that the fuel does not have to be replaced if the tractor has been stored for a long time and not used.

This is particularly common with compact tractors which tend to be used either winter or summer and and often exclusively only five a winter or summer. They are sometimes used for winter clearance of snow another garden hazards, or they are used in the summer four different types of smallholding or small agricultural work.

The Kubota BX 1860 has an 18 hp diesel engine. This tractor also features four-wheel-drive which gives it added strength and traction which is essential when dealing with any type of frontloading work or for when using other specific attachments or implements. BX range also have quarter inching valves.

This means there are increments of one quarter of an inch at the lower link end which allows for a much greater degree of being able to control any implements that are being used on the tractor. Often using various implements mean a degree of sophistication and delicate work that being able to use a quarter inch valve makes much easier.

Another feature of all the Kubota BX series tractors is the attention to detail that has been paid to the practical side of using these tractors for a small farm or small agricultural or landholdings work.

These tractors have been fitted with extremely effective halogen headlights, which are a way removed from lights that tractors of old used to have. The reason for this is fairly self evident that these tractors tend to be used often at very early in the morning or very late at night when the light is either coming or going.

This means that it is a time of day when it is easier to miss things, why have accidents or not do the job as efficiently as you would like to. Good headlights allow a fastly improved and safer working environment.

The Kubota BX series also have standard front four position valves. This is another piece of attention to detail that Kubota have made with all air tractors, which allow the driver or operator to attach frontloading and other front mounted implements safely and easily to the tractor.

This is the sort of thing that make driving these tractors much safer and much easier than a lot of others. Kubota have even gone to the trouble of colour coding the levers to ensure that they are easier to see and make sense of.

The Kubota BX series radiators have what is called a reverse air flow system of cooling. What this in effect means is that air is taken from underneath the operator drivers area, i.e.

Of the tractor and is put forward towards the front of the tractor and expelled from the tractor underneath the hood.

This has the dual effect of reducing the chance of overheating in the tractors engine, and also means that the operators cab is considerably cooler than it would be otherwise.

Kubota have also put a lot of work into designing the cab area of the tractor. This is the area where the operator or driver will spend often a considerable amount of time and much detail has been looked at and make comfortable.

There is a high back and reclining seat area designed for maximum comfort for the operator. There is hydrostatic power steering which makes the tractor considerably easier to use and steer. There is an optional extra to have cruise control fitted on the tractor.

Some people find this an attractive option, other people feel that cruise control can sometimes be a bit dangerous because it automates function of the driver having to be aware of what speed he is doing in the tractor.

With the low level of speeds of these tractors can achieve in comparison to a car, cruise control its probably going to be safe enough for most people, and a significant benefit to others.

There is also the obligatory hand rail which allows the operator to climb up and climb down from the tractor with a greater degree of safety, there is a very thoughtfully designed cupholder to allow for the morning caffeine intake, and there is a very clear and simple instrument panel that gives the driver or operator of the tractor a lots of valuable information in a very easy to read manner.

Kubota also make a range of garden tractors known as zero turn tractors or zero turn mowers.The main difference with a Kubota zero turn mower or Kubota zero turn tractor is essentially that they have two levers that control the steering as opposed to a single steering wheel.

Kubota Lawn Tractor Dealers

When buying a Kubota lawn tractor, one of the first issues you will determine or have to determine is whether you buy a new or a used Kubota lawn tractor.

There are advantages and disadvantages on both sides, and there is a question of whether you buy a second-hand or used Kubota lawn tractor either from someone you know, or through an ad or online.

There are many advantages to buying a Kubota lawn tractor through a Kubota dealer or dealership.

This assumes there is a Kubota dealer or dealership within the vicinity of where you live. If not it might be worth enquiring whether any other local manufacturer or dealership sells Kubota lawn tractors as well.

In the event that you decide to buy a new Kubota lawn tractor, then you will need to fight through a Kubota dealer.

There will be some room for negotiation on the price of the Kubota lawn tractor. And the purchasing process will be fairly similar to that of buying a new or used automobile through a dealership.

A Kubota dealer will have a wide range of K lawn tractors to choose from, either literally in stock or available from a wider Kubota distributor.

Kubota Lawn Tractor Dealers

Bearing this in mind have an idea before approaching a Kubota dealer of what type of Kubota lawn tractor you want to buy in the first place. You are then in a much stronger position to negotiate a price for the Kubota lawn tractor that you want to pay.

It is also a good idea when buying a Kubota lawn tractor to bear in mind that this is the point at which you have leverage over other issues, to do with servicing, warranty, maintenance etc.

Bear in mind the practicalities of what it will mean if you need to take a Kubota tractor back to the Kubota dealer for any reason, either within the terms of the warranty or not.

There are very practical considerations about how you would get the Kubota tractor back, and it is a good idea to think these through and talk them through with the Kubota dealer to arrive at a practical accommodation that you are both happy with.

If you are buying a Kubota lawn tractor that is used or second-hand from a Kubota dealer, all the above applies but there are one or two other practical considerations you should think about as well.

Check if the Kubota dealer sold the original Kubota lawn tractor and how long ago.

The age of the Kubota lawn tractor will give you some idea about its manufacturing base and how old it is. It is also important to find out if you can any information concerning the type of land or the type of use that the Kubota lawn tractor has had.

This will give you some indication of its condition and usability to date. In any event find out if the Kubota dealer is willing to give you a warranty covering parts and maintenance, and if so for how long .

Kubota Lawn Tractor Safety

When either considering a purchase or using a Kubota lawn tractor it is important from a safety point of view to remember that it is first and foremost a tractor, which is a piece of industrial/agricultural machinery.

This means are a significant number of safety issues to be considered, both in terms of maintaining and servicing the Kubota lawn tractor to make sure it works as safely and efficiently as possible.

Also in terms of the operation, the driving of the Kubota lawn tractor. This applies both to the age and maturity of the person who is to drive the Kubota lawn tractor, as well as a number of driving considerations as well.

The Kubota lawn tractor should only be used by a person who could be deemed a responsible adult, who has enough capability and maturity to read and understand the manual comes with a Kubota lawn tractor, and interpret and understand the various safety protocols that need to be applied.

There is a tendency to assume that because a Kubota small tractor is often used in a residential setting, it is okay for adolescents or teenagers to use it around the home. This is not so.

Most manufacturers, including Kubota, will suggest a minimum age as being the appropriate age for a suitable adult to be considered able to drive Kubota lawn tractor.

Kubota Lawn Tractor Safety

This minimum age should be taken as a minimum, but the only person able to assess the suitability of a teenager or adolescent is that of a responsible adult/parent.

If an adolescent/teenager is deemed responsible enough to drive the Kubota lawn tractor, then a responsible adult should train and supervise such a person, and be on hand at all times in case there are any problems or unforeseen dangers that may occur.

By way of tractor safety generally, there are considered three main risks concerning the operating or driving of any type of tractor. The first is turnovers. This is where a tractor or effectively turns on its side and tips over causing potentially serious and possibly fatal damage to the driver of the tractor.

This danger applies to a Kubota lawn tractor as much as any other type of tractor. This type of accident only happens when the driver of a tractor is too close to the edge of an incline, or whether land dips for any reason.

The main way to prevent this type of accident is not to drive on any land that is not flat. In addition most modern day Kubota lawn tractors should have an ROPS fitted as standard.

If not then it is a good idea to have one fitted. The operator of a Kubota lawn tractor should also have a seatbelt fitted and worn at all times. In the event that the Kubota tractor does tip over on its side these measures could well provide enough protection to prevent a more serious injury or possibly fatality.

Kubota Lawn Tractor Parts

The cost of replacement or new parts for a Kubota lawn tractor is a factor that should be looked into as one of many considerations when thinking about what type of Kubota lawn tractor to buy, whether to buy a new or a used Kubota lawn tractor and where to buy the Kubota lawn tractor from.

There are a number of things to think through when purchasing a Kubota lawn tractor.

Before doing so be careful about what type of land the Kubota lawn tractor is to be used on, and the type of work either residential or commercial that you expect the Kubota lawn tractor to be used for.

This will give you a better idea of which make and model of Kubota lawn tractor you wish to purchase.

Deciding on a new or a used Kubota lawn tractor will be determined by a number of factors. Kubota lawn tractors should be seen as a major investment over a long period of time.

As such consideration as to the cost and availability of Kubota parts for Kubota lawn tractors is an important factor. Bear in mind when referring to Kubota lawn tractor parts that these commonly include the option for a Kubota lawn tractor engine rebuild. This is quite common, and an avenue that you might wish to explore.

Kubota Lawn Tractor Parts

Kubota parts for Kubota lawn tractors may be required in order to comply with any warranty or servicing or maintenance agreement that might be in force or made available upon purchase of a Kubota lawn tractor.

This is an important consideration to look into, as failure to use Kubota parts might violate any warranty or the terms of any warranty to the extent that it could be voided.

There are many discussion forums and websites where there is much information to be found about different types of Kubota in lawn tractor parts, their availability, their cost and the best place to buy them from.

If you’re going to use information obtained via the Internet to buy any type of Kubota parts for any make of Kubota lawn tractor, then it is a good idea to try and obtain if you do not already have one, a Kubota manual for the specific model of Kubota lawn tractor that you are going to be replacing the part on.

Kubota parts can sometimes be advertised as such without being officially recognised by Kubota as being manufactured by them. It can sometimes be a grey area as to what our official Kubota parts and which are not.

If in any doubt it is much wiser to use a Kubota dealer both to buy a Kubota lawn tractor, to have that Kubota lawn tractor serviced and maintained by them, and for the Kubota dealer to use any Kubota parts they might need in order to repair or maintain your Kubota lawn tractor.

Kubota Lawn Tractor Manuals

Where ever you buy a Kubota lawn tractor it is important that you acquire with it the operating manual that specifies manufacturers requirements for operating, servicing and maintaining the tractor. If you buy a new Kubota lawn tractor, then a manual should come as standard, either in hard copy or as an electronic download, a PDF document.

If you buy a Kubota lawn tractor that is used or second-hand, it is possible that you either will not get a  Kubota manual or get one that is out of date. In any event it is worth contacting your local Kubota dealer and acquiring the most up-to-date manual there is for the particular model of Kubota lawn tractor that you have bought.

The manual for the Kubota lawn tractor will be divided into a number of sections, but they will largely cover the areas of how to operate the tractor, Kubota lawn tractor parts and the Kubota lawn tractor maintenance and servicing requirements.

A significant portion of the Kubota lawn tractor manual will be devoted to issues concerning safety, both in terms of proper upkeep and maintenance of the tractor, as well as operational and general usage protocols.

The manual will identify significant number of risks that may need to be addressed, and particular care and attention should be paid to these concerns.

The manual for the Kubota lawn tractor should spell out that the main risk for the driver of a Kubota lawn tractor is that of an overturn, and will identify the various factors and contributory issues that can be addressed to minimise such a risk.

Kubota Lawn Tractor Manuals

Other types of risk concern other people in the vicinity of the Kubota lawn tractor, i.e. the land where it’s being used. Given that it is likely to be a residential setting of some type, there is likely to be activity by way of people, children, pets or other animals.

They are likely to be curious about what is going on. This is potentially a serious risk and all other living creatures should be kept well away from any area where the Kubota garden tractor is to be used.

In addition there is a danger that the blades of the Kubota lawn tractor could inadvertently catch an object such as a stone or a piece of debris and throw it out with great speed to the side of the tractor. If there are people or animals in the vicinity, they are likely be injured, perhaps seriously.

It is a good idea to clear as much visible area of the ground as possible that is to be mowed, in order that this type of accident does not occur. In addition it can seriously damage the Kubota lawn tractor as well, if this happens it should be repaired immediately and not used until such repairs have been done.

KUBOTA MOWERS FINANCE

Anyone looking to buy Kubota mowers might well need to arrange some type of finance or credit in order to buy or lease the mower. The process for arranging finance or credit Kubota mowers is fairly similar to that of arranging finance or credit when buying or leasing a new or used car or vehicle.

Kubota has its own credit arm, and whilst this is primarily focused on helping people to buy or lease a  Kubota tractor, it is still perfectly possible to apply for credit for a Kubota mower.

There are a number of steps in the process which can make the decision as to what type of Kubota mower to buy an easier one.

The first thing to do is to decide what you want to use the mower for, and whether or not it will be purely private and domestic, or whether there will be some element of commercial usage as well.

KUBOTA MOWERS FINANCE

The question as to whether or not there will be any commercial usage may affect the credit application, as there will be additional questions concerning the nature of your business, and possibly any other people involved in running the business, and possibly any family connections as well.

The process of applying for credit with Kubota will be fairly similar to applying for credit with any other bank finances tuition such as a credit union. The applicant will need to submit a fairly detailed questionnaire and provide a high degree of information about themselves and their financial situation both past present and future.

Based on this information, but will decide whether or not to lend the applicant money to purchase the Kubota mower, if so how much, and on what terms and conditions.

Another important factor concerning Kubota mowers finance is that of insurance. It is important to check whether or not the mower will be covered under any home or renters insurance policy, especially where it will be covered for any liability damage in the event of an accident. This is especially important if the mower is to be used in any type of commercial activity.

KUBOTA MOWERS CREDIT

Kubota mowers can be bought either for primarily residential purposes, or for a mix of residential and small business work such as land holdings and garden centres and nine maintenance work etc.

It is quite likely that some type of credit or finance arrangement will be needed to purchase a Kubota mower, and it is worth researching the finance market in the same way that one would if you are thinking of buying or leasing a new car, in order to see what deals may be available.

One of the biggest problems when obtaining finance deals or quotations  is simply being able to compare them on a like-for-like basis.

This is really important, and understanding the various components of any type of credit finance arrangement can make it simpler in terms of understanding what is being compared, and making sure it is being compared a like-for-like basis.

The various elements of any credit or finance arrangement are likely to centre around the length of the loan, the size of any down payment, the interest rate charged  throughout the period of the loan and whether or not the interest rate is fixed or not.

KUBOTA MOWERS CREDIT

For many people, or matters most is the size of the monthly repayment. It is important to realise that the longer the period for length of the loan agreement, then the smaller the monthly repayments will be, but obviously the overall figure paid at the end of the lane will be greater because of increased interest rates.

It is also important to make sure that the interest rate is fixed throughout the period of the loan.

It is normally the case that it is, as skills a degree of stability and certainty to both sides in the agreement as to what is due and when.

That can sometimes be provision within a loan agreement for the interest rate  to change, and this should be highlighted by both sides and understood before any contract is signed.

Is also important to be clear with any contract with Kubota credit or any other finance organisation exactly what is included in the loan and what isn’t.

This policy covers the final price of the Kubota Mower, but can be especially important with regard to things such as sales tax, registry fees, extended warranties etc.

There are a number of potential add-ons which a dealer  can charge for, some of which could value and needed, some of which may not be needed by the individual. C

KUBOTA GARDEN CREDIT

Kubota Garden refers to a wide range of Kubota tractors  and implements that are widely used either for domestic or residential gardens and landholdings, or for very small farms and Gardens or horticultural centres.

Buying a Kubota Garden tractor can be a serious financial commitment, and most people some type of Kubota credit will be needed.

There are various types of credit available for buying any type of Kubota tractor, and it is worth spending time investigating what type of credit is available.

One option that should be considered for a Kubota Garden tractor is leasing.

Most people don’t think of leasing as an option, but it can be available depending upon the individual’s circumstances should be seriously considered.

The idea of leasing a Kubota garden tractor is in effect similar to that of a long-term rental.

Leasing a tractor on Kubota credit can have advantages for both sides.

From a customer point of view, it can give them effective ownership of a new Kubota garden tractor that they would not otherwise be able to afford to purchase outright.

KUBOTA GARDEN CREDIT

The customer will agree a number of times at the beginning of the lease, including that of a down payment, the interest rate and whether or not it is fixed period of the lease, and any end of lease payments.

From Kubota’s point of view leasing a garden tractor is in many ways as valuable as the sale of one.

The benefit is mainly in the establishment of a customer relationship, that they know will exist for a fixed period of months, often up to 4 or five years.

Kubota knows, like many auto manufacturers, that a long-term relationship with a customer is in fact far more valuable financially  than simply having a sale of one individual tractor.

When a customer leases a tractor from Kubota, with Kubota credit, they will be aligning themselves with Kubota not just in terms of the sale or purchase of the tractor, but also with servicing and maintenance costs.

A customer will also be much more open to either renewing a lease once it has finished, or possibly even buying another tractor from the same dealership.

This in part will depend upon the relationship the customer has with the Kubota dealer, which the dealer will have been able to work on over a period of months or years any upon the length of the lease originally negotiated with Kubota credit

KUBOTA LAWN AND GARDEN TRACTORS

Kubota Tractor– Lawn tractors

Kubota have a range of lawn tractors and garden tractors available, depending on the size of your garden or lawn. This can seem slightly confusing at times, but this post give s an overview of the range of lawn tractors and garden tractors available.

The term lawn tarctor and garden tarctor also really refer to ground maintenanace and smallholdings.

Kubota Tractor– BX Tractor series

Kubota have four tractors in the BX Series, the BX1860, The BX2360, the BX2660 and the BX25. Kubota would probably describe this range as a cross between amore agricultural tractor and agarden mower. All the BX tractors are fuled by the Kubota diesel engine, with engine sizes ranging from 18 through to 25.5hp.
