    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    Worked! Though I backed up to a tree, still close to the pond, so I had to go forward and do the same kind of trick in reverse to pull myself forward to a spot where I could pull away from the pond. I had some plans for this tractor close to the pond, but I think I will cancel them unless it’s a...

    What did you do to or on your Kubota today?

    So I got my new BX 1880 about two weeks ago (but I traveled for my daughter’s wedding for one of those weeks). I enjoyed putting about 5 hours on it so far. I moved an awful lot of heavy stuff that has been piling up around here. Got an amazing amount of work done in those 5 hours. I‘ve had...

    Used or new BX 1880, older 2360, or just wait

    I asked about the 3rd function while I was signing the paperwork to buy my 1880 and the salesman was : "nah." He was not very enthusiastic overall as a salesman and in the end he complained that they are selling so many more tractors than ever before, and all the paperwork. The deed is done...

    Used or new BX 1880, older 2360, or just wait

    Yes, but... It's a rather short driveway. It has a bit of a tricky spot because we put a wood shed at the end of the driveway, right where snow falls off the metal roof, but otherwise it's not too bad. And like I said, I have owned a Honda walk behind snowblower since the 90s, and I think for...

    Used or new BX 1880, older 2360, or just wait

    I’m going for the new one. I’ll go over to the dealer this afternoon. All the used prices were crazy high. Going to get the BX 1880 with QA FEL and might as well get the mower deck in the package so they will deliver it and I’ll have it instead of having to hunt for one in the future if I want...

    Used or new BX 1880, older 2360, or just wait

    The main highly critical activity is snow. Grass can grow, logs can sit. Even with snow I could hire it, but I'm not on anyone's customer list. The tractor's bucket is going to be a backup for my ancient but solid walk behind snowblower. There's also a thing that happens where snow on a shallow...

    Used or new BX 1880, older 2360, or just wait

    Yeah, the mid mower for the BX 1880 is probably 2/3 the value of my existing GF1800, which is a grass cutting monster. Maneuvers great, has a 60” deck. I suppose knocking the mower off the purchase of a new BX 1880 and getting a QA instead. Keep both tractors. Yeah, maybe. So how does it work...

    Used or new BX 1880, older 2360, or just wait

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, I've been using a wheelbarrow hard for years, so a BX would be a step up. Not seeing many B tractors out there (of course not many tractors at all out there)

    Used or new BX 1880, older 2360, or just wait

    And of course I put the "just wait" in the title of this thread because if I cool my jets I'm sure I will find a better deal in the future. But I've already got use for it.

    Used or new BX 1880, older 2360, or just wait

    I started a thread last week when my neighbor was going to sell me his BX 1800. That was a roller coaster that flopped, but got me wanting a 4WD Kubota with bucket pretty badly. My neighbor went hot then cold then hot then cold again on the sale. He's pretty confused about what he wants to do...

    Quick Attach Loaders for 18-23 BX?

    Man I thought it was named as a B1800, but after watching some “differences between Kubota Tractors” videos on YouTube I see that the Bs are kind of bigger and beefier than the BX. I know that he can remove the loader, but he told me he gets his neighbor to help with that. And it does have a...

    Quick Attach Loaders for 18-23 BX?

    I’m half thinking of keeping my GF1800 and using it just for mowing, buy and use the B1800 mostly for the bucket. Maybe crazy to store, maintain, and own two old tractors. I guess I’ll see what I buy and what I can do about a bucket quick-ish attach.

    Quick Attach Loaders for 18-23 BX?

    So if “A B is better than a BX” what do you think of a B1800 with 1000 + hours with mower and loader for $7500? That’s the tractor that I was going to buy, and I have another shot at it. Well maintained.

    Quick Attach Loaders for 18-23 BX?

    And, interestingly, I have an opportunity to get a B without even transporting it.

    Quick Attach Loaders for 18-23 BX?

    Thank you everyone! This is all very helpful. I’ve had an old Kubota diesel (GF 1800) for about 20 years, but nothing to attach besides the front mower deck, which I keep on. This has been pretty confusing, and you all are shedding a lot of light.

    Quick Attach Loaders for 18-23 BX?

    Having had a deal fall apart on an older B1800, I’ve decided what I really want is a tractor with Quick Attach loader and probably belly mower. So, looking at used tractors on Craigslist, BX series, and nobody is mentioning this in the ads. So I get the model of the loader from the photo and go...

    Selling my GF1800. Value?

    Duh! I looked at it again, and I had missed the decimal. It's 769.x! hours. It had a lot of use before I got it, clearly -- the tires were worn right out. So I when I read that wrong I didn't question it! I am so &%@! bummed out today that my neighbor came and took his tractor back. I am...

    Selling my GF1800. Value?

    Well, a twist in the story! My neighbor came and gave me my check back and took his tractor! He wants to keep it! (As I was driving it the quarter mile from his house a pin broke on the drive shaft to the front right wheel, and I told him there was a problem with that. I think he felt bad about...

    Selling my GF1800. Value?

    First time poster, long time user. I just bought my neighbor's BX1800 with a bit over a thousand hours on it, because I have some built up use for the bucket around here. Quite excited about that. Also the 4wd will be useful, as my place in Vermont features a few slopes: my old GF1800 gets up...
