Three Pieces of Equipment Every Large Property Owner Needs to Have in their Shed


Large property ownership can be both a rewarding and time intensive undertaking. Ask any property owner who takes pride in their land and they'll gladly tell you about the hard work they put into their yard each season. 

But just like all yards are not created equal, neither is the equipment available to manage them. And while many property owners enjoy time spent working their land, you don't have to spend countless hours to create a yard that will make your neighbors notice--at least not with Kubota's lineup of residential equipment.

Here are three pieces of Kubota equipment that every large property owner needs to own that will bring them the reward along with the extra time to enjoy their property.

BX Series Sub-Compact Tractor

Kubota’s BX Series line of sub-compact tractors has been the #1 selling sub-compact tractor in the U.S. for over ten years* and is a must-have piece of equipment because of the versatility it provides to large property owners. This small but mighty lineup can easily handle just about any job on your property thanks to a wide range of performance-matched attachments. 

From a front loader for material handling and rotary cutter for clearing grass, weeds and brush, to a box blade for ripping and cutting roots and a rotary tiller for soil preparation, there’s almost no limit to what you can accomplish with the BX Series. And with an overall height of less than seven feet tall, storage is a breeze as it fits in a standard garage without ever needing to fold down the roll-over protective structure (ROPS) bar.

Z200 Series Zero-Turn Mower

While most people who live in cities and suburban neighborhoods can maintain their yards with walk-behind mowers, property owners with larger mowed areas need a mower that offers comfort, durability, and reliability—like Kubota’s Z200 Series residential zero-turn mower.

Kubota’s Z200 Series is engineered with precision to achieve a professional-grade cut at a homeowner-friendly price point. The mower is available in five different models with engines from leading manufacturers like Kawasaki (Z231KW), Kohler (Z231KH and Z251KH), and Briggs & Stratton (Z231BR and Z251BR), and mowing decks ranging from 42 inches to 54 inches.

Equipped with a deluxe, cushioned high-back seat with up to 6 inches of horizontal adjustment, a wide foot pan with plenty of legroom and an ergonomic control panel for quick and easy access, the Z200 Series makes even the longest mowing jobs feel like a breeze. The Z200 Series’ low center of gravity provides excellent stability, and standard safety features like a ROPS bar, retractable seat belt and a flexible spring-loaded plastic discharge shield helps to keep operators safe so they can keep their focus on the task at hand.

RTV-XG850 Sidekick

For large property owners, getting around on your land, whether for leisure or work, is a big consideration. Though some property owners may opt for larger, less fuel-efficient pickup trucks, often a utility vehicle, like Kubota’s RTV-XG850 Sidekick, provides the perfect combination of power, performance, handling and style to get the job done. 

While utility vehicles have come a long way over the last several years, and there are certainly many options on the market, the Kubota Sidekick is an ideal companion for large property owners.

Powered by a 48-horsepower gasoline engine that reaches a maximum speed of up to 40 mph and an innovative CVT PLUS transmission, the Sidekick is ready to work, or play, at a moment’s notice. Plus, a 1,000-lbs. cargo bed capacity (600 lbs. for California models), and up to 2,000 lbs. of towing power on flat surfaces and up to 1,550 lbs. on a slope means you have an impressive workhorse at your fingertips. 

And best of all, the Sidekick is backed by a two-year, 1,000-hour limited warranty so you can have peace of mind while putting it through its paces on your property. To learn more about the full lineup of residential equipment and warranty, visit
