    2007 Kioti DK40se HST, Woods BH

    Default Re: My Kioti DK40SE report !

    About 300 hours on my 2007 DK40se hst. Going strong. A little too strong this weekend as I attached a Woods LR72 rake to the FEL via a 3PT adapter and used to clean up an area I'd taken a bunch of trees down with last fall. Prezeled the landrake on a 3 inch stump.

    I'll continue the clean up with the new ratchet rake I got from TSC ($329 for the 65 inch version). That is a solid addition to the weapons chest and after just one afternoon of work I'd recommend it. I got the 65 inch size as I have both the 72 inch standard bucket and a 60 inch 4n1 so can use it on both that way.

    Would love to say the same about my 2010 DK40SE but with the warmer temperatures the reverse squeal issue has returned with vengeance. Nearing 200 hours. No reply to my letters or emails to Kioti.

    My 2009 DK40SE HST is working great. 98 hours ...

    Learned a few things last Week.. I was grading the road for the Church, and they wanted it a bit wider.. so using my rear blade to make new Ditch .... Blade cut the ditch wonderfully .... but also cut the phone lines "WONDERFULLY" ... Cripes ... I felt like a complete jerk... trying to help out I pull a boner like that! Everything worked out well, the Phone guy was on great terms with the Pastor so all fixed at no charge... but crimony!! Be carefull out there fellas!

    Here's some pics of my Sunday activity ... used tractor to hold up the rear of my pickup while I rotated tires ... I don't know how heavy the back is.. but gives you an idea of what the 401 loader can do.

    Tractor on!

    Katty did you get help from your dealer on the squeal? Going to pick up next week a DK45SE HST, so curious how Kioti is handling your problem.

    329 hours on my DK45SE. Any items other than fluids that needed replacing were from newbie operator error. It's been a good machine.
