    We bought a kubota m95x we wanted to use it to push our extra boss bx-12. The power is adequate, but I'm not confident the loader arms will will hold up.

    Any insight would be appreciated

    We push one with a John deere 7520 with a JD 740 classics self leveling loader. We have run this setup for 2 years with no problems. Just need a good operator and you will be fine. I don't know kubota tractors well but I wouldn't put the boss bx12 on anything smaller than about a 125 hp ag tractor not because of horsepower but based on weight. The pusher can hold quite a bit of snow and needs a descent weight behind it. That is my experience. You may get along fine with a smaller size machine.

    I'm guessing you have the LA1301S front loader? Given that a BX12 weighs roughly 2k pounds and the capacity of the front loader is around 3k, you just have to be careful and judge well. Are I don't know if you plan on running counter weights at all, but it would be a good idea. We run a Case 570L skiploader with a BX12 and we needed to put weights on the rear 3 point hitch.

    Be careful who you put in the machine. One bad hit and you will rack the loader arms

    I know a guy run a 12 pusher on a Ag tractor loader and He reforce his loader gusset it with a brace in between the tilt area to the lift area with a bar. He said, thats the weak spot of a Ag loader

    We run Ag loaders for loading snow or pushing snow back

    We had a Kubota M135X with a Blizzard 8611PP on it and it counldn't even handle a full load with out spinning out. We also had it fully weighted down. It just seems like ag tractors cant get enough weight to the ground unless its a large tractor.

    I have a case IH 210 puma with a bx-12 on the front and love it!! There is not much that can stop a 210 hp farm tractor! I put 1,200 ibs of weight on the 3-point hitch for counter weight, I wouldn't put it on a much smaller tractor or its gonna start taking its toll on stuff...
