Kubota often takes a conservative stance when it comes to comparing to other products. They stepped out a bit with this video, and did a great job of point out actual factual differences.

This is a common question that we get both in the parts and service departments. The answer is quite simple. Many machines have small electric inline fuel pumps to raise the fuel to the engine and help provide a chance that a diesel may self prime if run out of fuel. The first filter protects this electric pump, the 2nd protects the engines fuel injectors if that pump happens to fall appart.

Removing a BX-Series Backhoe
All BX-Series backhoes can be removed with the same series of simple steps.
First use the dipper to lift the rear of the tractor.
Second remove the pins between the tractor and backhoe mounts. Or, the case of the BX23, open the latch that connects the two. This can be the most frustrating step of these pins are not maintained.
Now set the tractor down, and curl the backhoe away from the tractor.
Using the outriggers, lift the backhoe out of the J shapped mount.
Pull the tractor away, shut off the engine, and disconnect the hydraulic hoses.
At this point can you simply drive away

Attaching a BX-Series Backhoe
Attaching a BX backhoe is as simple as removing it.
First, back the tractor into the backhoe.
Shut down the engine, and attach the hydraulic hoses.
Use the dipper and outriggers to life the backhoe, then back the back into it.
Lower the outriggers and set the backhoe into the J at the base of the mount.
Use the dipper to curl the backhoe into the tractor, and continue to push to eventually lift the tires off the ground.
Insert the pins, or in the case of the BX22/BX23 simple close the clamp.
Curl everything up, and drive away.

The air filter is your main line of defense against dirt and debris. It should be checked often, almost daily depending on conditions. A little known feature of many newer air cleaners is that the rubber piece on the bottom of the cap can be squeezed to release any large pieces that have collected in the trap. It is possible to try and clean air filters, we recommend not doing more than simply knocking the filter on the floor. Chemicals should not be used, nor air pressure. Its simply too easy to damage a filter and subsequently destroy the engine.

The following steps can be followed to easily remove a loader from any tractor using a standard parking stand with pin fastened mounts. It should not take an experienced operator more than 2 minutes to complete this series of steps.
Start by parking the tractor on flat level ground. Hooking the loader backup to the tractor is much more difficult if the loader and tractor are not on the same plane.
Raise the loader boom (right) and lower the two stand arms (above). The arms are held in place right below the loader by two cotter pins. Removing the pins allows the arms to swing downward and reconnect in the lowered position. Use the same cotter pins to secure the arms in this position.
Drop the loader and roll the bucket forward so that it’s resting on the front edge. Lift the front tires off the ground just slightly. This helps push the tractor and loader mounts together and makes the pins easier to remove.
Once the loader is in position the pins that attach the loader to the frame can be removed. If the weight is properly distributed they will slide right out. Sometimes it’s necessary to work around the loader stick till the pin works loose.
With the pins removed roll the bucket from the front edge to the back edge. Curling here will cause the loader mount to lift away from the tractor.
With the loader away you can now unhook the hydraulic hoses. Before unhooking the couplers shut the machine down and work the controls in every direction to equalize the pressure.
If you do end up with pressure in the lines reconnecting the hoses can be difficult. You can blow off the pressure put pressing the pin in the center of the hydraulic coupler with a screw driver.
