In addition to performance-matched front loader and mower attachments, the BX2660 is compatible with a variety of Kubota implements including front blade, front and rear snow blower, sweeper, and post digger.

Kubota Tractor's new BX2660 sub-compact tractor adds to the company's BX series. With a 25.5-hp (19-kW), three-cylinder D1005 Kubota diesel engine and two-range hydrostatic transmission, the four-wheel drive BX2660 can tackle mowing, landscaping, and hauling jobs.

Described by the company as having a "sleek and practical design," the BX2660 features halogen headlights for work from dawn to dusk, along with a sturdy metal hood and fenders. The tractor has a mass of 1289 lb (585 kg) and is 95.5 in (2425 mm) long, with a category I three-point hitch included. It is 44.5 in (1130 mm) wide, stands 70.4 in (1788 mm) tall, and is equipped with a 6.6-gal (25-L) fuel tank.

The BX2660 comes standard with a reclining seat to help the operator remain comfortable during long projects. Cabin features include standard cruise control, digital tachometer, and hydrostatic power steering. The operator deck has been designed for improved room and comfort with split forward and reverse hydrostatic transmission pedals positioned ergonomically to the right.

A front four-position valve provides quick and easy attachment of front-mounted implements. The performance-matched Kubota LA243 front loader, which has a breakout force of 992 lb (4.4 kN), can lift up to 745 lb (338 kg) at the maximum pivot pin height. Additionally, the front loader’s 48-in (1219 mm) wide bucket has a 4.9-ft3 (0.14-m3) capacity that can be lifted up to 71.3 in (1811 mm). The BX2660 allows the loader and mower to be attached simultaneously for easy transitions between jobs.

A 54-in (1372-mm) fine-cut, side-discharge mower featuring a 5-in (127-mm) deep deck, along with 54-in and 60-in (1524-mm) standard side-discharge mowers, is available. Each mower model for the BX2660 has a cutting height of 1 to 4 in (25 to 102 mm) and can be manually adjusted in ¼-in (6-mm) increments with the included dial gauge. In addition to front loader and mower attachments, the BX2660 is compatible with a variety of Kubota implements including front blade, front and rear snow blower, and sweeper.
