Recalls/Warranty Fixes

[Collected by members of TBN.]

Items 1 - 4 are covered under warranty if and only if the issue actually occurs. So far less than 50% of the BX tractors we have sold have actually exhibited any symptoms and only about 10% on any one single issue. but most tractors shipped after December 2006 have been addressed.

1-Replacement battery cover frame (original doesn't fit properly) K2581-57134.

2-Grip Kit (Kubota part number:K2581-9557-0) Contains all the plastic handles and lever sleeves for the levers and knobs. Seems that they go on much tighter than the old ones.

3-Cluster kit: This is the dash cluster for all the gauges. The first design could accumulate moisture inside, or the hour meter may not work properly
BX1850 Part number K2501-6250-2
BX2350/24 Part number K2581-6250-2

4- Fender Kit: For the original fenders that had a tendency to break... Part number K2581-95522

The Broken Fender Fault

A common problem on early BX machines was the cracking of the plastic fender where the step meets the rear wheel arch. In more recent BXs Kubota has strengthened the component. For customers with the faulty fender, Kubota has been fixing under warranty or has shipped a reinforcing kit for machines that have not yet broken.
