    Re: The WICKED Root & Debris GRAPPLE!!!!!!!

    Loading your rears is really for traction. It's kind of a "freebie" because it adds no weight to the frame of the tractor, it's just sitting on the ground. But for loader work, besides the increased...

    Re: The WICKED Root & Debris GRAPPLE!!!!!!!

    Are you guys going to take care of him and get into a grapple appropriate for his tractor?

    5100E's loader is rated for only 400 lbs more than the 45hp Kioti at the pins/full height.

    Re: Thoughts on this 10' grader blade?

    I think it's way too much blade. I have a heavy 8' on a larger tractor and it's plenty.

    For dirt you're barely going to scratch the surface. For snow you will have no problem pulling a load...
  91. Re: 15KW Winco PTO Generator fs-CL, Leesburg, VA, $1K

    Once again, I believe you can do a lot better if you go a bit older for a much nicer 1800RPM Made in USA unit, versus a 3600RPM Chinese screamer. Looking through the auctions this year there were a...

    Re: Lynch Pins

    The black ones have an extremely stiff ring, so I think it'd definitely solve the OP's issue.

    I've never broken a cheap one though... and I think a lot of mine are from the HF assortment. There's...

    Re: if i wanted to build a jaw crusher...

    The problem for most people (not sure about OP/Holland) is not that gravel is expensive, it's that getting rid of concrete/stone debris is. I only pay about $250 for 18 yards of gravel a single truck...
  94. Re: Mowing a 14x80 mobile home with a DK55... YES!

    Just about this. I routinely move a 14,000 lb boat + trailer with my NX, and I did the same with my old L3650. It comes down to being able to control the load, and the fact you can't change ranges...

    Re: Winco PTO Generator

    Is the furnace electric or gas? If electric, is it heat pump or resistance heat? How many AC units? Is the water heater/stove/etc. electric or gas? If you have a large electric infrastructure, you...

    Re: Winco PTO Generator

    Edited as I missed the fact that it comes with the $700 3-point hitch. So the price does look good for what it is.

    Re: Winco PTO Generator

    That's a 3600RPM generator, and I believe made in China. I think you're better off getting an older Winco, Katolight, etc. that is 1800RPM and made in the US... MUCH heavier duty units that will last...

    Re: So Do Auxillary LED Lights Need A Relay.

    If you use crap switches, sure. A quality 10A switch will be rated to at least tens of thousands of cycles. Contura switches come in a lot of different visual styles, but they are all well-sealed and...

    Re: So Do Auxillary LED Lights Need A Relay.

    3x18W? No. But the light bar on my Kioti is 234W which is 20A with the tractor not running.

    So, it depends a lot on the application and number of LEDs. If you are replacing existing lights with a...

    Re: Woods DS96 not very good in thick grass

    I have a Land Pride RCR2572 which obviously is 2' less deck, yet the rear opening is probably twice the height of your Woods. I would cut it above the blades, but leave a provision to add a rubber...
