Kubota’s BX1830 and BX2230

Delivering Reliability, Versatility and Power with Upgraded Features


TORRANCE, Calif.-- Kubota Tractor Corporation (KTC) created the sub-compact niche market over five years ago with the BX Series, giving consumers compact tractor features with the operator comfort and user friendliness of a lawn and garden tractor. The BX Series has been a renowned success. The second generation of BX models are the BX1830 and BX2230, which have a more modern design and are equipped with a more powerful Kubota diesel, three-cylinder, liquid-cooled engines with 18 or 22 hp.

The two-speed Kubota exclusive HST has been specifically tailored to smoothly handle a wide range of applications and speeds. The HST is operated with a single pedal control, allowing the operator’s hands free to steer and work implements. Features include cruise control to maintain continuous speed, especially helpful when mowing large areas. Standard rear and mid PTO with a hydraulic live independent clutch is easily operated with a single lever. Both models can operate in 2WD or 4WD.
Operator friendliness and comfort were high priorities when designing these models. Hydrostatic power steering makes steering practically effortless, especially in tight spaces. An illuminated, easy-to-read panel makes monitoring engine conditions easy while working implements. The high back seat features lumbar support for optimal operator comfort.

Maintenance is easier than ever before with a redesigned easy open hood. The wrap-around front-end design gives a sleek, modern look, and illuminates the operator’s view by encasing the headlights. A full flat open deck provides plenty of legroom and the rubber-mounted engine reduces vibration and noise. Both models come standard with a ROPS and retractable seatbelt.

A category I, three-point hitch allows for a variety of rear implements to get any job done. A large, durable front loader has an easy attach/detach feature that requires no tools. For front mounted implements, an optional four-position valve is available and remains with the tractor. This is very helpful when changing front implements. The standard three-position valve remains with the loader. Controlled with a single lever joystick with a series circuit makes dumping fast and easy. A single cylinder in the bucket’s center enhances balance and strength.

Mid-mount mowers are available in 54” and 60” cutting widths. For easy travel in large areas, the operator can raise the mower up to a high ground clearance of six inches. A conveniently located mowing height adjustment dial controls mowing height in half inch increments from one- to four-inches.

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.
