My Kama TS354C has about 540 hours now. It is equipped with a Leon Mfg. front-end loader, model 500. Overall it has been a little workhorse and I have never had any problems with the powertrain.
Recently I have had problems with the TPH and the hydraulic pump. I replaced the stock pump with a Prince PTO pump and have never looked back. I have had recurring problems with the ball joints; they are a poor-quality casting, but then again, those parts may not have been engineered (or copied?) for the added weight of the FEL. Its build quality does not approach that of my '49 Oliver, but what does?
