The bigger the boys, the bigger their toys, this page covers some of mine.


My Kubota tractor



It's the smallest Kubota you can get with a backhoe, a BX23.  I got mine in 2004, sweet little machine.... has a cab with removable doors...
Nice for pushin' snow in the winter and pulling out small trees during the rest of the year.
I added worklights on the roof, and installed a control panel up front of the cab.
Next thing to add is cab heat for keeping warm while pushin the snow.
The thing runs on a great little 3 cylinder diesel, easy to start, even in the cold winters we have around here.
After 12 years, the only thing to fail is one of the starting interlock switches, so I wired in a bypass switch, only need it about half the time.
I had to disconnect the fuel line on one occasion, and the maintenance manual said it was going to be a pain in the ass to purge the air out of the line,
     however, I had no problem getting the engine to turn over once I had the lines hooked back up!
And even with those 12 years, it only has about 240 hours on it.
