Price Paid : $14,000.00
Years of Use : 1-2 Years Use
Implements : FEL, MMM, BH, post hole, scraper blade, bar tires
Purchased From : local dealer
Strengths LOTS of power in a small package but still small & maneuverable enough for the homeowner/farmette. Designed with BH in mind means no worries about frame strength. Haven't found a stump yet I can't dig out if given enough time. Haven't been able to get it stuck yet despite deep snow & mud. Powerful enough to mow my overgrown pasture without ever stalling.
0% financing plus it was cheaper than my local JD and NH dealers for same options.
Weaknesses Maint cosmetic issues: Paint scratches, flakes, and faded far too soon for a tractor 1 year old. Seat foam came a little loose from back due to loose piping. SMV reflector holder on BH held on by a horse clamp; needless to say I don't hang the reflector on it.
Us bx23 owners get no respect from the rest of the tractor world because nobody believes a little tractor can do so much. Anyone who says the bx23 can't do it never owned one!
My dealer could've been more helpful & knowlegable after the sale, but that's not really Kubota's fault
Overall Very nice for smaller farms like mine (15 acres + horses). I'm hard on equipment and I haven't been able to break anything on it yet which remarkable.
