The BX1500 Tractor

Mows Like A Garden Tractor, Works Like A Compact Tractor


TORRANCE, Calif.-- Combining versatility and value, the BX1500 joins Kubota Tractor Corporation’s successful BX Series, and is equipped with a 15-hp, 2-cylinder, liquid-cooled, Kubota diesel engine that provides performance and agility. The Z602 Kubota diesel features a re-designed engine balancer for quiet performance and a superior exhaust suppression allowing for a comfortable ride.

Kubota’s unique 4-wheel drive enables smooth power transfer to front wheels at all turning angles giving efficient operations in tight places, allowing the BX1500 to mow where 2-wheel drive tractors can’t. Hydrostatic power steering is standard.

The BX1500 maintains a Category I, 3-point hitch and rear 540 PTO, with a mid-PTO for the mid-mount mower and front mount implements. An extra thick, full-length, welded steel, ladder shaped frame makes the BX1500 rugged and durable.

The front loader and mid-mount mower are performance matched and can both be attached while the tractor is working. The mower deck can be raised five inches making it easy to move around from one yard to another. Its LA181 front loader carries 398 lbs. attaching and detaching quickly, with no tools required.

The one lever joystick with a series circuit makes dumping fast and easy.

Smaller size tires, similar to a garden tractor size, and a shorter tractor length wheelbase allow the BX1500 to perform a wide variety of applications.

The Operator Presence Control System stops the mower blades and the engine automatically if the driver leaves the seat, with the PTO engaged, an important safety feature. ROPS (Roll Over Protective Structure) and seat belt provide an additional margin of safety not found on garden tractors.

Performance matched implements include a 48-inch and 54-inch mid-mount mower, rotary tiller, front loader, sweeper, snow blower, front/rear blade, box scraper, and ballast box. Other Category I, 3-point hitch implements, such as post hole augers and sprayers, can be used with the BX1500.

In addition to the BX1500, Kubota Tractor Corporation markets a complete line of tractors up to 103 PTO horsepower, along with a line of performance-matched implements, utility vehicles, construction equipment, consumer lawn and garden equipment and commercial turf products.
