    Maybe, but the hydraulic relief valves should have prevented that. Also, the initial photos look like incomplete or bad (no penetration) welding.

    My tractor earns money. I have bent curl brackets, ripped feet of from snow plow, and moved things this tractor has no business moving. Believe me bad welds.

    Ditto the above- the DK-40 with KL-401 loader is phenomenal at lifting. The only way the OP's outcome happened is defective materials/workmanship, ( read: amateur hour welding). Otherwise, a failed relief valve, as ritcheyvs mentioned. Less likely, IMHO.
    Either way, it's Kioti's responsibility to fix, without inconvenience/expense to the OP.

    And that is why you pay a premium for Cat equipment along with the build quality. CJ
