Dealer Insights



For loader, backhoe, and other applications, nothing beats the Loader/Landscaper Series tractors. Both tractor/loader and tractor/loader/backhoe merge power, compact size, and versatility to offer incredible performance when trenching, landscaping, material handling, and more.

  • Three Machines In One - Whether the job calls for a tractor with 3-point implements, excavating utility trenches, or loading spoil into an end-dump, the B26 can take on all three applications.
  • Four Wheel Drive - Combined with the differential lock for the rear axle, the B26's 4 WD ensures virtually unstoppable performance under difficult conditions or on varying terrain.
  • Greater Horsepower - Tackle the toughest jobs with the B26's rugged 26 HP Kubota diesel engine. It boasts an enviable combination of high power, high torque rise, low noise, low vibration and cleaner emissions. Easy to start on cold mornings, this high-output, liquid-cooled engine will prove both dependable and durable for years to come.
  • Increased 3-Point Lift Capacity - We've increased the lifting power of the B26's Category I 3-point hitch by over 60%, offering greater versatility with implements.
  • Increased Backhoe Lift Capacity - Larger hydraulic pumps improve power for tough excavating, as well as improve lifting capacity 18%, up to 780 pounds.
  • Increased Bucket Capacity - The 60" heavy duty round back loader bucket features a 9.5 cu. ft. heaped capacity to increase your productivity. The 66" light material bucket features 13.8 cu. ft. heaped capacity to speed loading of bark, mulch, and other landscaping materials. An optional bolt-on cutting edge is available to prolong the life of either bucket.
  • Increased Digging Capacity - Get more power and dig deeper. We've increased the bucket breakout force by 35% and the digging depth by more than 8 inches.
  • Increased Lift Height & Lifting Capacity - The loader on the new B26 has a lift capacity of 1,100 lbs. This allows you to handle heavy loads and gives you more power on any job. The lift height of 7' 10" is the best in class.
  • Increased Stabilizer Power - We've increased the stabilizer lift capacity to give you greater control on any terrain. The improved capacity results in better balance, which reduces unwanted settling. It also means more strength - rear tire lift is possible even while the tractor is idling.
  • Rear Differential Lock - Combined with the four wheel drive, the rear differential lock ensures virtually unstoppable performance under difficult, or on varying, terrain.
  • Brace-less Loader Frame - The brace-less loader frame design improves visibility and offers easier access under the hood.
  • Bucket-level Indicator - The B26 features a new and improved bucket-level indicator. Located on the loader lift arm, the rod indicator of the B26 gives you the ability to check level when you're using other implements like the pallet fork, and allows you to more easily check level when using the bucket.
  • Easy Lubrication - Lubrication points on the loader are conveniently located, eliminating the need to reposition the loader during lubrication.
  • Headlights - We've installed headlights on the canopy to provide illumination for safe operation during night work. Optional front work lights provide an even greater field of view.
  • Increased Digging Capacity - Here's everything you could want in a backhoe-more power and the ability to dig deeper. The B26 offers more than 4,000 lbs of bucket breakout force and a digging depth of 8' 4". And best of all, you get all this in a surprisingly compact tractor.
  • Integral Main Frame - The reinforced integrated main frame of the B26 is performance matched to the loader and backhoe. This means that the structural integrity of the tractor is uncompromisingly sound and built to take on the stresses of repetitive loader and backhoe work.
  • Manual Storage - You won't have to look for your manuals the next time you need them. Convenient storage is provided right on the back of the deluxe seat.
  • ROPS/FOPS - The Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) and the Falling Object Protective Structure
  • (FOPS) come standard on the B26. Besides protecting you from harm, the FOPS canopy also serves as a barrier between you and the elements.
  • Work and Signal Lights - We've installed signal and work-lights to the ROPS and canopy respectively. The height of the lights provides greater ground coverage during night work for backhoe or 3-point hitch work. Optional work-lights provide an even greater field of view.
  • 3-Point Implement Hydraulic Valve Option - The optional 3-spool valve kit is essential for getting the most out of your 3-Point implements. Use them to operate a landscape rake and more.
  • Side Position Controls - We've moved the engine throttle and starter switch to the right side of the operator seat to make it easier to reach when you're operating the loader or the backhoe. The loader joystick is mounted on to the side console to give you better control of the B26's loader. This allows the operator to utilize multiple functions with ease. Along with the cup holder, these features help to reduce fatigue.
  • Thumb Bracket - An optional hydraulic thumb makes quick work of debris and material handling tasks on the job site. A factory-mounted thumb bracket means that installing this handy attachment is a snap.
  • 3 Range HST Transmission - Superb maneuverability comes from the easy-to-use hydrostatic transmission system. Low effort is needed for the single HST pedal to control both speed and direction changes quickly and without shifting or clutching. Forward and reverse are simple when using the loader, enhancing control when working in tight spaces.
  • 540 RPM PTO - The independent PTO keeps stopping to a minimum. With this handy feature, you can stay productive by engaging and disengaging the rear PTO without ever having to stop the tractor.
  • Category I 3-Point Hitch - To give you the ability you need to take on bigger jobs, the lifting capacity of the
  • B26's Category I 3-point hitch is 1,675 lbs 24" behind the lift points. This will allow you to attach a wider variety of implements and larger implements, making you more productive.
  • Precise Inching Performance - Experience smooth and precise movement of the arm and boom thanks to our high-performance inching valve. This comes in handy when simultaneous arm and boom movements are required or when using the backhoe to "finish" jobs.
  • Protected Hoses - To better protect and increase the life of the hydraulic hoses, we've routed them through the boom and arm. This routing also helps to offer greater visibility and deliver an overall cleaner backhoe design.
  • Quick Attach Backhoe - Attaching and detaching the backhoe has never been easier than with this quick-mount system. In minutes the Cat I three point linkage is installed and you're ready to use the hydraulic, independent PTO.
  • Quick Coupler Option - The bucket quick coupler provides a quick and easy way to change backhoe attachments. Combined with the optional hydraulics kit, the B26 provides the flexibility to perform most of the tasks operators expect from larger machines.
  • Reversible Seat - We've installed more comfortable and ergonomic seats on the new B26. These new deluxe seats are more cushioned to reduce fatigue, even when working long hours. Simply lift a lever and rotate the B26's deluxe seat from forward facing to rear facing and back again. It makes switching to backhoe operation a snap.
  • Optional 3rd Function - The 3rd function auxiliary hydraulic valve allows you to do more than ever. Optional
  • front remotes and the skid steer style quick coupler enable the use of a 4-in-1 bucket, grapple bucket and various other hydraulically controlled implements. The 3rd function valve can be easily activated with a button located on the grip of the loader's control lever.
  • Spark Arrestor Muffler - Mounted under the hood, the standard Spark Arrestor muffler ensures that you are safe when working around dry fields or grass.
  • Tilt Steering Wheel - The foot operated tilt steering wheel is a handy feature that improves operator comfort, and makes it easier for the operator to get on and off of the tractor.
  • Auxiliary Hydraulics Option - The bucket quick coupler provides a quick and easy way to change backhoe attachments. Combined with the optional hydraulics kit, the B26 provides the flexibility to perform most of the tasks operators expect from larger machines.
  • Curved Boom - The curved boom of the B26's backhoe helps you to avoid dig area obstacles, such as large rocks, and to achieve maximum digging depth with a minimum trench cut. It also allows you to more easily place the bucket contents in the center of a truck bed, as the curvature helps you to clear the truck's sideboards.
  • High Quality Chrome Cylinders - Construction grade chrome plating of our backhoe's hydraulic cylinders means that they are less prone to rust, offer increased durability, and better sealing performance.
  • Loader Control Arm Rest - Just like larger tractors, the loader joystick is mounted on the console at the operator's right side. Positioned next to the joystick, a sturdy armrest reduces arm movement and fatigue, providing the comfort and support you need for long workdays.
  • Low Profile Control Tower - Compact and mounted low, the backhoe control valve profile makes it easier for the operator to get on and off of the backhoe. Visibility is improved down the side of the boom and arm
  • Mechanical Spill Guard - The B26's Mechanical Spill Guard tilts the bucket forward as the loader is raised, thus reducing the spillage of the bucket's contents. This makes filling and dumping easier and increases efficiency.
  • Protected Hoses - The loader's hydraulic hoses are routed through the B26's boom. This not only protects them and adds to their longevity, it also gives operators a cleaner and clearer line of sight in front of the tractor.
  • Skid Steer Style Quick Coupler - The skid steer style quick coupler allows you to easily change between implements like a pallet fork, bale spear, 4-in-1 bucket, grapple bucket, blade or post-hole digger, without tools.
  • Slanted Hood and Loader Frame - The slanted boom and hood of the B26 improves visibility over the hood. This helps you change attachments and get back to work quickly, and allows increased productivity in tight areas.
  • 20.3° Angle of Departure - High ground clearance provides a generous 20.3 degree angle of departure. This allows the B26 to load quickly onto trailers, easily ascend inclines and prevent damage to curbs while you move from job to job.
  • 3-Point Linkage On Board Storage - This standard, Category I 3-point hitch gives you excellent versatility and compactly folds up in the B26's convenient storage space when not in use.
