 bx2200 new today but small problem

Hi, I just picked up a nice 2001 bx2200 with the LA211 loader, 200 hours, rear 3 point utility dump box, harrow and a couple of other things. I got it from a guy who just got divorced and was cashing out. I think I got a pretty good price at $6500 considering it's as close to new as you can get right down to the bar tires.

My question is this, The loader has down pressure but not real strong unless you pop the hydro selector in "N". It goes up great, down great , floats, dumps, curls all fine. It has down pressure but to lift the front end off the ground you have to put it in "N".....Is this normal or is something broken?

Thanks for the help!

Two things:

1) Make sure you are running some serious RPM as the the BX puts out very scanty hydraulic pressure at low idle.

2)They are designed with a very shallow digging angle. The only way I could get mine to lift the front end was to curl the bucket lip down or put a brick or a 4x4 under the bucket.

If it still acts puny it is because it is only rated to lift around 500 pounds, and the tractor weighs 1300... most of that is forward of the steering wheel.

Apply some rear rear ballast to help teeter your totter and it should hoist the front wheels off the deck.

Nice machine. And, by the bye, you stole it at that price. Let me know next time you go tractor shopping so I can follow you with my checkbook.

It definitly lifts wayyyy up as long as i put it in N...All my other machines were 50 years old and they had dual sticks and would lift the nose up. I guess this is just the way it is? Thanks

Another thing..... maybe the first guy never did the 50 hour service. Could be the filters/screens are plugged and the oil is tired.

When lifting the front of the tractor while in range then you are also asking it to overcome the drive system and pull the rear of the tractor by sliding the rear tires. Some can do it and some can't! Your 50 year old tractors weren't hydro's with holding power. Your BX should be able to lift the front in neutral.

Good point, Art. I didn't consider the dynamics of the rear wheels acting like a brake with the HST engaged.

The gem of knowledge for the day.

Art, you were 100% right! I went with what you said and while it was in gear I went to lift the front end up, as long as i slightly pressed the pedal forward it lifted it up like there was no tomorrow.

This is a great site. I am paying the 19 bucks tonight and becoming a member. More info off here than the kubota dealer here in CT. As a matter of fact, the dealer here in CT is horrible in looking up parts. I needed a couple of small parts and they were almost "hassled". It's a big dealer that sells huge machines. I guess the couldn't be bothered with 200 bucks worth of bx2200 parts!

Does anyone know of a good mail order kubota parts dealer? I would probably need a parts list too. I don't mind spending money but it burns me when the dealer acts like they are doing me a favor!

Thanks for the answers guys..Jim

CThonestgy - I just bought my Kubota from Westco eq in Norwalk. I dont know how there parts dept. is yet but it might be worth a shot, Also have you tried Midstate? Tractorsmart is great if your in no rush but sometimes you need parts that day. Was the dealer your speaking of Lomac? Let me know so I can stay away from there.
