Kubota BX23S : Specs, Parts, Attachments, Reviews

Kubota BX23S

The Kubota BX23S is one of the smallest but most powerful compact tractors made by Kubota, and is a backhoe loader tractor that can also have a mowing deck attached, as well as many other implements.

This makes it one of the most innovative and sought after machines in its class, and provides an affordable and versatile tractor that can be used for a wide variety of different tasks, both industrial and residential.

Kubota has developed their own systems for connecting the backhoe and front loader, which are known as the Swift-Connec tand the Swift-Tech systems.

These make the attching and detaching incredibly simple and easy to do, as well as being very quick when understood. This can have a real impact at a practical level and is one of their key selling points for the tractor.

Kubota BX23S for sale / price

The Kubota BX23S was first launched in 2017, with a price tag of around US dollars 20,000. Its list price in 2020 is more likely to be around US$25/26,000

There is always a caveat around list price, as a customer should be able to significantly reduce this by negotiating the price directly, as well as any other inducements that Kubota or the dealership may offer.

There are also a significant number of used Kubota BX23S available at different prices. A recent listing on TractorHouse had a 2018 Kubota BX23S for sale at US dollars 16,900 and hours listed as 168.

There was a similar listing for a 2019 Kubota BX23S with a price tag of US dollars 21,700, but with hours listed only as 2.

It is worth mentioning in relation to hours that the sometimes determine the initial price asked for.

aNumber of hours can in fact be slightly misleading, in that a better guide is the type of work it has been used for, and the type of land it has been used on. This information is best obtained from the previous owner if possible.

Kubota BX23S  attachments

The Kubota BX23S  attachments are primarily a loader, a backhoe and a mowing deck.

There are two loader types :

The first loader is a kubota LA340, with a height of just over 70 inches, a clearance of just over 50 inches, a damp reach of just over 25 inches and a dump angle of 45°.

The second loader is a Kubota LA 340S, with a height of just over 70 inches, a clearance of just over 50 inches, a dump reach of just over 25 inches and a dump angle of 45°. The bucket which is approximately 45/50 inches.

Kubota BX23S  review

There are many reviews of the Kubota BX23S online, and it is normally fairly obvious which are sales promotions by dealerships, and which are genuine reviews by customers. Dealerships use videos to promote this tractor and its variety of uses.

This can be really useful in getting an overview of the tractor at its best, and at the same time should be tempered by a realistic assessment of what it can and cannot do, and any practical issues that numerous users will have encountered  once  purchased.

The value of a video review is really in showing the individual pictures of what the character is really like, and what its various components such as the cabin, the instrument layout and how the various attachments work.

The other place to get really good information is on one of the numerous discussion groups, such as tractor by net, which has a wealth of information that is normally fairly impartial and objective, yet posted by people who are real enthusiasts. The source of information can be invaluable both as a resource, and as an opportunity to ask any questions needed

Kubota BX23S  parts

Most people buy a Kubota BX23S  as a long-term investment, and one of their considerations is normally the availability and pricing of parts.

All tractors will need replacement parts at some point, either through routine maintenance or if things go wrong either mechanically or technically.

Parts can either be bought from the manufacturer, or from a third party in what are known as aftermarket parts.

If the tractor is still under a manufacturer’s warranty, then it is likely to be a condition of the warranty that manufactures parts are used. If that is not adhered to, then it is likely the warranty could be voided.

Some of the most common parts that are sought are: air conditioning, clutch and transmission, engine parts, filters, commission and electrical parts, hydraulic replacement parts and mufflers and exhausts.

Kubota BX23S  manuals

Having a manual is crucial for both safe operation of the tractor, and for knowing and following best practice in servicing and maintenance.

Manuals are easily available online and through dealerships, either as a free download or as a charged copy. There are a number of independent websites who carry manuals, however, with a tractor such as this one, Kubota BX23S, it is likely more easy to find a free download, often from one of the national kubota sites  themselves.

Kubota B26 craigslist

Sites such as craigslist are not always immediately associated with tractors, but they are in fact a very solid base from which to buy a used Kubota B26. The same rules apply when buying a used tractor as  when buying any use or second-hand car automobile. In the main, attention should be paid to the history of the tractor, where it was originally bought and when it was originally manufactured. Also what type of land it has been used upon and for what type of work.

The other main advantage of using craigslist to buy a Kubota B26 is that one can easily segregate areas of the country before deciding whether or not to look for a used tractor. This can make visiting the purchaser or obtaining some type of visual image much easier.

Kubota B26  price

When the Kubota B26 was first introduced, it had a standard manufacturers retail price of around US $ 33,000. Today that price for a new Kubota  is more likely to be nearer US$50,000.

Bear in mind that these are manufacturer prices, and should be able to be negotiated downwards quite significantly. There are also for new tractors, and given the cost, they will be viable to buy a good used Kubota.

When looking at buying a new Kubota B26, aside from being open to negotiating the list price, other factors should be taken into account, such as credit options, warranties, servicing and maintenance deals and any special offers that the dealership  or Kubota, nationally, might be willing to offer.

It is worth thinking along similar lines to buying a new auto, but there are many similarities. Some dealerships will also offer rentals, which might be useful for specific or one of jobs.

Kubota B26 review

A review of the Kubota B26 should really focus on two main areas.

Firstly there are a number of reviews on YouTube, mainly posted by dealerships, which show off the Kubota  tractors and point out its main uses and strong advantages over the competition. Whilst there is obviously a sales pitch going on to a point, it is nevertheless a good showing of what the tractor can do and its main strengths.

The second area for reviews is really discussion groups, like tractor by net, which has a significant base of kubota users, who tend to be both loyal and critical at the  same time. this means that they will normally offer good advice, based on their experience, which should both be able to inform and advise any potential purchaser.

Kubota B26 tractor loader backhoe

The main attachments for a Kubota are the leader and backhoe.

The loader has a weight of approximately just over 600 lbs, a height of just over 90 inches, a clearance of the dumped buckets of 70 inches, a dump reach of just over 20 inches, a dump angle of 45° and has a two lever quick coupler attachment system.

The backhoe has a  leaking depth of roughly 100 inches, a leading height of just under 80 inches, a bucket force of just over 4000 lbs, and a deeper stick force of just over 2000 lbs.

 

Kubota Dealer Guide

Finding a Kubota dealer is relatively easy, either through an Internet search or through a dealer locator on the main website. The real trick is to find a Kubota dealer who can give you what you want at the best possible price.

The Internet has changed the whole landscape of how to buy any type of Kubota tractor, generator,  mower or UTV. Most Kubota dealers will offer significant deals, both on the machinery itself, on parts and servicing, on credit and will hope to build a long-term relationship with the client.

Kubota Dealer

A Kubota dealer is a representative of the manufacturer, in this case, but is at the same time an independent business. This means that they are in competition with other Kubota dealers, both local to you and more far afield.

This means that when you have decided what type of Kubota tractor or other machinery you want to buy, you can approach several Kubota dealers independently of each other, either online or by phone, and obtain the best possible deal before even entering a showroom.

This is really significant because it puts you in a much stronger buying position than if you were simply to enter a Kubota showroom, or visit a Kubota dealership before having made any negotiating plays.

If you are willing to travel, then it is likely that you can widen your range of Kubota dealerships who are willing to negotiate with you. Some will even agree to shipping the tractor to your home location as part of a purchasing deal.

Kubota Dealer Near Me
