 BX 23 brake

Does anyone know how the brake works on a BX 23? Is it like a disc or drum or just some type of mechanism that grabs the drive shaft? Any enlightenment would be appreciated. Thanks.

I would assume it is much the same as almost all other compact Kubota tractors, it would be then a wet disc setup.

Why do you ask? Brake problems?

I was driving the tractor for a few minutes with the brake on and didn't realize it. It holds when stopped but I can go forward with the brake on. Hope I didn't do any damage. I have learned to be more careful and check before moving. An indicator of some kind would be good to see on the panel. Bet I'm not the only one who has done this.

All of us who have a BX in our lives have done this. There is no shame.

"Hi, my name is Av8r, and I've driven around with the parking brake on."

(crowd) "Hi, Av8r."

Yes, there should be a light. No, you've done no damage. I'm okay, you're okay. Okay?

Laughing out loud.

I've done it on my Deere. Mark's right, it makes a lot of noise. A good thing, too, because the dash light didn't seem to stop me.

Hi, my name is Jason, and I've driven my BX with the parking brake on.

I wondereded why it seemed to be working so hard.

Not sure a light would have helped. An interlock would be better.

Congratulations on joining the "I rode around with my brake on", club! Might not be the last time you do it! I have found it easier to just use the FEL as the brake. That way I don't have to worry about leaving it on!

Hi, my name is Ted, I don't own a BX, but I have seen tractors roll away because the FEL was used as a parking brake......

Best of luck.

 BX 23 brake

I have driven my Deere with the brakes on so many times that I hesitate to use them anymore. They never made any noise when I drove with them on, and I am oblivious to dash lights. I only realize the brakes are on when I get annoyed with the sluggish performance of the tractor.

The brakes have always required a fierce kick to the pedals to engage them enough to actually hold the tractor in place on a hill. My wife is not capable of engaging the brakes when we really need them. I have to jump on the tractor and engage them for her (with my big kicker workboots).
