Kubota UK continues to meet the ever-changing needs of turf professionals, equine and large estate users with the launch of its new BX231 sub-compact tractor.

The BX231 sets a new standard for the groundcare market, with its premium specification providing operators with a single machine that is capable of fulfilling a wide range of requirements.

Despite its compact size, the new model boasts a powerful Kubota three-cylinder diesel engine, offering an impressive 17kw, whilst also featuring a two-speed hydrostatic transmission for maximum power.

With three independent mounting areas for equipment - front, mid and rear mounted, the sub-compact tractor utilises cutting edge technology and design for maximum performance.

Featuring a new drive-over mower deck, the BX231 makes mowing simple and straightforward, as no tools are required to attach or detach the 54" and 60" side discharge mower decks. Users simply have to drive over the deck to attach and reverse to release, which also makes maintenance quick and easy to complete with minimal downtime when changing implements.

The machine is also available with a 48" rear discharge and side discharge mower decks and optional mulching kit for supreme cutting performance across all types of terrain. Regardless of the deck used, the BX231 continues to maintain a high ground clearance, ensuring it can easily travel over uneven ground and protruding obstacles.

Combining style with substance, maintenance on the BX231 is also a straightforward task. Key service areas can be accessed quickly and easily via the engine hood, which can be unlocked from the outside and effortlessly lifted. This significantly minimises the time usually required for maintenance.

Adrian Langmead, Business Development Manager for Kubota UK's Groundcare Division, said: "Kubota is renowned for being one of the first manufacturers to pioneer the sub-compact tractor more than 30 years ago. Our dedication and ongoing commitment to producing the highest quality and innovative machines is demonstrated with the launch of our latest BX231 machine.

"The new model further strengthens our range of high quality groundcare machines and adheres to Kubota's long-standing heritage by delivering exceptional reliability and durability. It is a versatile machine that allows the operator to tackle even the most challenging of tasks and maintenance jobs with confidence and efficiency."
