    Yeah, welcome to the club. After trying every type of filter wrench known to man, I just pounded the biggest screwdriver I owned into the thing and then used my foot while holding onto the tractor step. Took every ounce of strength I had in my leg to break that @*#! free.

    I think that gorilla works at multiple places. I have had a few new cars over the years and all the filters were on supertight. Ended up getting a wrench like this.

    Usually only have to break it out ever 4 or 5 years when we get a new car.

    Had one of those, and could not get it off with it.. couple of reasons, one the filter is huge, and you have a limited window between the step and the tire to operate in , and because the filter is huge, it just barely will go on, and it leave the handles so far apart you cant get your hands in a good position to twist it off.. The chain wrench is the best., the kind you put your 1/2 inch ratchet into and start twisting.

    Same issue with my CT445.

    The solution was to take a utility knife and cut through the paint between the top of the filter housing and the rubber washer.

    Next spray the area cut liberally with WD-40. Took about 3 treatments with WD-40 waiting 15 min between applications before the filter began to slowly loosen

    For my old DS3510, I got the Filter wrench which is like a cap for the end that you use a 1/2" breakerbar in. I then proceeded to twist the 1/2" plate off the end of the cap. Drilled and then riveted the plate back on the cap with 5/32 monel rivets. Tried again and the filter gave up it ghost and came off as it had a lost cause. The longer handle of the breakerbar gave more leverage A MIGHTY HEAVE gave me the win.....
    Be interesting to see how the filter on the DS4510 comes off when it comes due.

    Does anybody know how much fluid to put back in (2004 DK35)? I put about 8.5-9 gallons and ran the tractor for about 3-4 mins and it looked like it was right at the bottom of the acceptable range. I thought I read 7.? gallons.
    I dont have a manual!

    The manual says 11.6 gal.
    My 2001 model DK 35 (same as the 2004 model) usually takes around 10 or 11 gal on a fluid/filter change

    Wonder if he drained the two final drive cases in the rear?

    It makes a difference.
    I get an extra 1/2 gal or gallon extra out by draining the finals

    Strap wrench. Looks like a piece of seat belt and a piece of 3'' long 1/2 square tubing. One size fits all.
