The Kubota BX25 compact tractor is a relatively new model from Kubota, it started production in 2009. Like nearly all Kubota tractors, the BX25’s engine is made by Kubota themselves. It’s a D902 diesel engine with an engine size of 0.9 liters. This features a liquid cooling system that needs 2.6 liters of coolant to make sure that the engine does not overheat. The air intake for the engine uses a dual paper element air filter. The 3 cylinder engine has a power output of 23 hp. The engine needs to be topped up with oil to make sure that it contains roughly 2.7 liters of oil at all times to ensure proper lubrication. The 12 volt battery that is used to start the engine is charged via a 40 amp alternator.
The tractor uses a hydrostatic transmission that gives the Kubota BX25 2 ranges of gears, one high, the other low. In high gear, the tractor has a maximum speed of 8.4 mph while in low drive, the maximum speed is 3.7 mph. The fuel capacity of the BX 25’s is 25 liters (6.6 US gallons) of diesel. The tractor uses a 4×4 MFWD 4WD chassis which gives the tractor extra control on rough or unsteady ground. The tractor slows down and stops using wet disk brakes, while it uses hydrostatic power steering to make controlling the machine relatively easy.
The category 1, 3 point hitch on the Kubota BX25 has a rear lift capacity of 449 kg (992 lbs). There are also a number of attachments that work flawlessly with the BX 25. The Kubota LA240 loader has a bucket width of 1.21 m (48 inches) and quickly fits onto the front of the machine. The Kubota BT601 backhoe attaches to the rear of the tractor and enables it to become a mini-digger almost instantaneously. The backhoe itself is quite heavy weighing in at 279 kg (617 lbs).
