Used Kubota Tractors – garden tractor or lawn tractor
Research published recently in the magazine Horticulture looks at the question of what is the distinction between a lawn tractor and a garden tractor.
The research asks the question is there really a distinction, and if so is it a valid one.
The two terms have both been developed by different tractor manufactures, with Kubota emerging as one the most reliable ant trusted brands using the terms.
The reason the question is important is because both garden tractor and lawn tractor have implications in terms of how people think of their own lawn or garden, and which tractor they might subsequently buy.
Also the research looks at the question of whether the term tractor in the context of lawn tractor or a garden tractor is really helpful.
Most people identify tractors as heavy agricultural machines used on farms and for big construction work.
True as that is, compact tractors used in large gardens and home based land smallholdings are an invaluable asset to many people.
This research is particularly relevant to Kubota tractors, which have emerged as one of the leading names in compact tractors in the last few years.
People perceptions of what a garden tractor or lawn tractor is will play a big part in their own research as to what to buy, as well as their own ultimate purchasing decision.

The compact range of tractors that Kubota produce, and are in many ways market leaders of, are the BX series of tractors.
The entire used kubota tractor BX range has a number of standard features and specs across the range of compact tractors, but the main difference is in the engine size, really how powerful it is.
The BX range goes from eighteen to twenty five and a half hp, with the BX 2360 coming in at a powerful twenty three hp.
Engine size matters because it basically gives you more power.
The used kubota tractor user may need this because of the nature of the terrain, i.e. land or garden on which the compact tractor is to be used.
