New BX25D

   / New BX25D #21  
Good day today. I picked up a new Sure Trac 14' 14k lb dump trailer. It's very well made, great fit and finish. I opted for the scissor lift, wireless remote, spare tire and best tarp kit. The only thing I might do is have a set of ramps made just like the originals, but in aluminum, getting too old to be lifting those heavy ramps, LOL. After picking up the trailer I drove to the Kubota dealer and picked up my new BX25D. Options were factory thumb, Bxpanded belly guard, 3 pt hitch, and Land Pride grapple. Trailer is rated at 3600 lbs empty, I figure the BX and accessories was about 3000, so 6600 lbs loaded. It pulled just fine behind the Expedition, it has factory tow package and rear air suspension. Actually got 10.9mpg on the 160 mile trip home.

I noticed something odd today about the rear wheels, they are both held on with 2 studs and 3 bolts per side. Never seen that before, only bolts. Perhaps they use 2 studs to hang the wheel from when bolting it up. ??

Common practice on tractors. Hard to manage a large wheel when filled with fluid for ballast.

Gotcha, thank you. Must be relatively new on the BXs. Not noticed it on the 2013 and prior.

Yeah, mine (2014) came that way too. I asked the dealer why, and he had no idea!

Love the setup, NEED the trailer!

Tractor with grapple and dump trailer was so nice last weekend. I had cut down 2 medium size trees to make room for the néw shed into 10' sections. Had the trailer loaded in no time, and the best part was arriving at the landfill, backing up to the yard waste area, and pushing the button on the cordless remote and watching everything just slide off. I've been waiting a long time for this, should have done it long ago. Thanks.

Great set up! Would love to see some pics of your old Fords. You have a rare collection!

Nice, the best way to unload is by pushing a button.

Picked up a few more accessories, so far I have:

Factory thumb
LandPride grapple
Bxpanded belly shield
Bxpanded chain hooks and slip hook
Expanded tooth bar
Bro-tek wheel spacers
Bro-tek ripper tooth (ordered today)

I'll pick up a BXpanded bucket expander in the Spring when it's mulching time.
