Kubota B26 TLB – Specs, Parts, Prices, Reviews

Kubota B26

The Kubota B26 is a dedicated tractor loader backhoe, that is built upon the foundations of the world renowned Kubota B series, compact tractors.

There are a number of similarities to the B series range, but the Kubota B26 comes with a number of adjustments that make it stand out as a TLB in its own right.

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 Backhoe : Parts, Attachments, Prices

Kubota backhoe

A backhoe on a Kubota tractor refers to what is essentially a digging arm that is used for a variety of different types of excavation work. The Kubota range of backhoe tractors are referred to as their TLB range, which stands for tractor loader backhoe.

This can include the Kubota B26, the Kubota L47 and the Kubota M62

A backhoe would normally be associated with an excavator, although Kubota had engineered a range of highly efficient tractors that can also carry a wide range of different types of backhoe and do different types of excavation work.

The backhoe on a Kubota tractor is known as a curved backhoe boom and is specifically designed to help avoid certain large obstacles such as rocks went digging with the boom. It is also designed to allow ease of manoeuvrability when placing the contents of the bucket in the center of a truck bed.

Kubota backhoe – design

A Kubota backhoe has been designed to specifically protect and display the various hydraulic hoses connected from the tractor through the arm. The design is intended to keep the various houses is safe and clear of other obstacles as possible.

Also they are much clearer to see thereby making it easier to see if there are any problems or they need repairing anyway.

The Kubota backhoe hydraulic cylinders are chrome plated, the primary advantage of this being that they are less prone to rust.

This can be a major issue for all types of agricultural equipment, especially on a Kubota TLB where the nature of the work means it is likely to be done in all weathers and in all types of terrain.

Kubota Backhoe – features

A Kubota TLB has what is known as a 20.3 angle of departure, which effectively means that the TLB backhoe stays relatively clear of the ground all the time.

This is really important from a practical point of view, because it allows easy or easier manoeuvrability from the backhoe and bucket to various trailers, and also when moving the TLB and its backhoe from one job to another.

One of the best features of a Kubota TLB tractor is that it has a reversible seat. When doing work of this nature a reversible seat is absolutely crucial.

It allows the operative of the TLB backhoe tractor to physically manoeuvre themselves into such a position that they have total visibility and control over the work they are doing with the backhoe.

The Kubota range of TLB’s will also include an important range of stabiliser lifting capacity.

This is a really important feature of increasing balance and making sure that the TLB is as stable as it is possible to be. Given the nature of excavation work and the nature of the type of terrain that a TLB be is likely to be used on this is very important.

Kubota backhoe – attachment

People sometimes think of attachments almost as optional extras. In a sense they are, but with a Kubota backhoe, this can be a slightly misleading impression.

The backhoe is an integral part of any tractor, and its design and usage is carefully linked to the overall design, maintenance and functioning of the tractor itself.

A backhoe will have very specific capabilities, including a specific weight, a transport height, a digging depth, a leading height, a bucket rotation, a bucket force and a dipperstick force.

Kubota backhoe price

If buying a backhoe as a separate attachment, it is important to make sure that it isn’t the right hitch, as some can be three-point and some can be four point.

It is also worth checking the size of the bucket that is wanted. Some packets can be 8 inch, some 10 inch, some 12 inch with some going up to 38 inch.

Prices for a backhoe can range from US dollars 5000 up to  US$14/15 000.

The price of a bucket can range from about this dollars 600 for a 10 inch bucket through to US$1 500 for a 38 inch bucket.

If buying online,  make sure that shipping costs are included in whatever price is quoted, avoid these can add a significant amount to the overall paid.

Kubota backhoe craigslist

Many people look to buy a variety of  kubota attachments including a backhoe on craigslist. In part, this is because it is very easy to use, and in part because it is easier to see what is available to buy on a geographical basis.

This can make transportation and cost of transportation of items a real deciding factor.

The only caution against craigslist is that it is an open marketplace, and there is no guarantee about the seller or the condition of the attachment being brought.

It can sometimes be a better deal to buy through an authorised dealer or online site like Tractorhouse, which have a reputable following, many of which include free shipping in all their prices.
