It may be compact, but the BX23S’s backhoe offers jumbo size convenience and performance. It features a spacious, comfortable operator station with ample legroom, as well as a curved boom, 20° angle of departure, hydraulic hose protection, wide sight lines, and the Kubota Swift-Connect mounting system for quick and simple attachment/detachment of the backhoe. It’s the ideal combination of convenience and performance for all your digging jobs.
A simple lever operation is all it takes to quickly detach the backhoe, letting you drive away. To reattach, just back the tractor into the backhoe and let the auto-lock mechanism secure them together.
Convenience and performance in a compact backhoe.
Tucking the hydraulic hoses inside the backhoe boom provides two great benefits—protection for the hoses and greater visibility for the operator.
When it’s time to switch from using the tractor or loader to using the backhoe, simply lift the reversible seat and swivel it to the back. The seat also can be adjusted forward and backward for optimal operator comfort.
(1) BOOM AND SWING CYLINDER CUSHION VALVES (Standard on BX23S)
An integrated cushion valve ensures smooth movement both horizontally and vertically, minimizing the shock that’s transmitted to the operator when the backhoe arm hits its range limits.
(2) CURVED BOOM
A curved boom not only allows you to dig deeper without contacting the edges of the excavation area, it also increases lifting height.
The backhoe uses the same No-Spill coupler system as the front loader to keep your backhoe clean and oil-free.
|MECHANICAL THUMB (Optional)
A positionable mechanical thumb gives you the ability to grasp and move logs, landscaping materials, and other items with ease, greatly expanding the types of jobs you can do around your property.
|20° ANGLE OF DEPARTURE
Steep inclines pose no problem for the BX23S, thanks to its 20° angle of departure. It also means the tractor can be loaded onto trailers with the backhoe mounted.
Tucking the hydraulic hoses inside the backhoe boom helps protect them from damage and the elements, thereby increasing their service life.
Boots at the bottom of the backhoe levers help protect the operating mechanisms from the elements as well as ensure smother operation and longer service life.
Wide steps on each side of the boom controls provide more room—and comfort—for the operator’s legs and feet.
