    Default Hydraulic Filter hard to get off!

    Trying to change the Hydraulic/transmission fluid on my DK35, I cant get the filter off. Poked a hole in the filter trying to get it off. Anybody have any suggestions?

    It's a common situation on a Kioti's first oil change. The filters are ridiculously tight. I used a 1/2" ratchet nylon strap wrench the first time. One of those chain filter wrenches would also work.

    They're fine once you get them off and reinstall as per Kioti's instructions. I wish they would follow their own instructions for the first install.

    Yes, it is.. on the first one I poked a hole thru it with 1/2 inch all thread and managed to turn it a bit.. BUT I would suggest you go buy a chain wrench and use that. Save your self the hassle.. They are put on by a 900 pound gorilla for some reason.. Don't put the replacement one on that tight!

    I just removed all the spin-on filters on my Yanmar with a large pair of channel lock pliers, maybe the same would work for you.

    heres a site selling it.



    you just insert your ratchet wrench and go at it.

    These strap wrenches don't look like much but the one I have owned for several years has never seen a filter it couldn't handle. I have had it crush some filters getting them off but it always gets them off.
