The BX1870 model is an estate tractor range produced by the company Kubota. Being very powerful tractors, these are also very adaptable to various types of activities and can be used on a wide range of types of land.
The first designated area where Kubota thought the BX tractor range would be suitable for is the rural area, blending perfectly in this lifestyle. They are fit for a high number of activities on small farms, but not only solely them, being also able to face the ground maintenance activities for larger properties. The BX 1870 Kubota tractor can also be used for both small business and residential homes for landscaping purposes, but also for the maintenance of various soil types in gardens.
Kubota claim that the diesel 18 horse power engine uses up to 30% less fuel than a normal gasoline engine does. This type of engine is employed on the Kubota BX 1870 model, giving it quite a high level of power due to the torque it is capable of. The engine power is important for small tractors, because it gives them the ability of being engaged in various activities, from carrying trailers to light construction works. More than this, there are a number of tool attachments that, mounted on the tractor, widens the range of capabilities that can be carried out with the Kubota BX 1870, such as shredders and snow blowers.
Being a diesel engine as opposed to a gasoline one, the BX1870 can be pushed to the limits and not expect any issues like stalling for example, besides the obvious advantage of lower fuel consumption. The smaller and more powerful it is, the more maneuverability it conveys and can be run safer by the driver. Another important technical aspect of the Kubota BX1870 tractor is the four wheels drive. This is necessary in the situations where attachments are connected to the front of the tractor, no matter their purpose: residential or agricultural works. The three point hitch, which is hydraulically controlled, allows a number of tools to be installed on the tractor, while easily allowing control and adjustment.
Of course, attaching implements on the BX 1870 would determine changes with regards to the weight, power, speed and control of the tractor. One needs to be aware of the load on this machine, in order to operate it safely and efficiently. Misuse of the tractor when such changes occur, may lead to imbalance and slide-slips.
Unlike a general belief that tractors are machines very hard to operate, having hard seats and a huge number of levers and buttons, the modern day tractors like Kubota BX 1870 are quite comfortable, intuitive and safe to be used. This is because the manufacturer starts from the idea that the owners will use them for a wide range of activities, therefore spending a lot of time in them and the experience needs to be a good one. Feeling relaxed and safe while operating a Kubota tractor makes one avoid stress and, implicitly, mistakes in manipulating it.
