Attaching and detaching the front loader couldn’t be easier! Kubota’s new Swift-Tach Loader system lets you do it without getting down from the tractor!
Four simple steps, performed from your seat, is all it takes to attach and detach the front loader.
|Step 1: Lift the loader boom and fully dump the bucket. Pull stand release lever to lower the front loader stand. Reposition the bucket so that it is in slightly dumped (20 degrees dump position) and lower the boom until the front axle is off the ground.||Step 2: Unlatch the loader latch levers to detach the front loader hooks.||Step 3: Use the loader lever to remove the loader frame from the mast. Turn off the engine and move the loader joystick lever to relieve the hydraulic pressure.||Step 4: Pull one lever to quickly and easily detach all four hydraulic lines as a unit and store the coupler on the loader boom. Back away and you’re done!|
Faster, simpler attachment of implements.
(1) CURVED FRONT LOADER BOOM
The BX’s rounded boom perfectly complements the new overall tractor design. But its benefits don’t end there. It also offers greater visibility.
(2) FRONT AXLE CAPACITY
The BX Series’ front axle is built for heavy-lifting work, from hauling loaded buckets to moving pallets of materials.
(3) FRONT LOADER ATTACHMENTS AND MOUNTED IMPLEMENTS(Optional)
Front loader attachments include pallet forks, the 60″ front blade and the standard bucket, making the BX Series even more versatile.
(4) LEVEL INDICATOR (Optional)
The level indicator allows the operator to easily keep the bucket cutting edge and other implements parallel to the ground.
(5) HOSE PROTECTION
The loader hoses are tucked inside the boom for greater protection and better operator visibility.
|FRONT GUARD (Optional/Standard with loader)
The stylish new front guard has been redesigned to fold downwards for easier opening of the hood.
|2-LEVER QUICK COUPLER (Standard on LA344S/LA340S, Optional on LA344/LA340)
Kubota’s 2-lever quick coupler speeds-up and simplifies the changing of front attachments.
|SIMULTANEOUSLY ATTACH AND DETACH ALL FOUR HYDRAULIC LINES
The BX80 Series features a new system for attaching and detaching all four hydraulic lines at the same time, making it even faster and easier to change front-mounted implements. The no-spill coupler helps keep your tractor’s frame clean and oil-free.
|THIRD FUNCTION VALVE (Optional)
The optional 3rd function valve broadens the scope of the front loader operation by enabling use of a grapple or 4 in 1 use bucket as well as other hydraulically controlled attachments. The 3rd function valve can be activated with buttons located on the grip of the joystick.
