Kubota BX2200 Troubleshooting

The Kubota BX2200 is a sub-compact utility tractor from BX series. This model was manufactured between 2001 and 2003. The Kubota BX2200 driveline includes a Kubota D905-E-BX three-cylinder indirect injection water-cooled diesel engine and 2-range hydrostatic transmission with infinite forward and reverse gears.

A 54.8 cu.in (0.91L) engine has a cylinder bore of 2.83" (72 mm), piston stroke of 2.90" (73.6 mm), maximum power of 22 hp (16.4 kW), and 52.8 Nm (38.9 lb-ft) of peak torque at 2400 rpm. The maximum forward speed - 8.1 mph (13 kph), max reverse speed - 6.2 mph (10 kph). The open center hydraulic system used a gear pump with a flow of 5.5 gpm (21 lpm). The hydraulic system pressure is 127 bar (1850 psi). The Kubota BX2200 is equipped with a hydrostatic power steering, wet disc brakes, 18x8.50-8 front tires, and 26x12.00-12 rear tires. The wheel base is 55.1" (1400 mm).
