(Kubota  strongly recommends the use of the ROPS and seat belt in almost all applications)    

Swift-Tach Loader

Why would you ever want to remove your front end loader? One good reason is that removing the front loader helps prevent ground compaction and turf damage when mowing. It reduces your turning radius when working in confined areas or around trees. In fact, you’ll find that there are plenty of times that removing your front loader will make your job quicker and easier. That’s why it’s so important that the BX Series front loader can be removed quickly, without leaving the operators station.
