    Scout by... Volkswagen ?!?!?!? Electric, no less.

    As my Daddy said back in the late 60's after me getting out of the Army, and I said I was going into computers, "Son, it's a changing world, you can ignore it, you can live with it, or you can use it." I'm not sure where I am with electric vehicles but them damn computers made me a fine living...

    Kubota vs Kioti?

    operator comfort counts for a lot. I am 6'5" and in my mid 70s with questionable knees. I had to struggle to slide into the seat of the Kubota and the position of the pedal didn't feel comfortable. I probably would have adjusted with time, but the Kioti was easy in, easy out when test driving...

    Can you dye hydraulic or gear oil? If so with what?

    What works against rodents

    I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. I just got another vehicle (van) back from the shop to repair damage from some kind of rodent eating the wiring. We have tried moth balls, Irish Spring, coyote urine but nothing seems to keep the little buggers away. They haven't found the tractor...

    Kioti CK3510Hst PTO lever (manual) won't engage

    On my model there is no electric switch, it is strictly a manual lever, depress the clutch, move the lever. I have tried switching the ignition on and off, thinking the computer keeps a reset counter but no success there. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Kioti CK3510Hst PTO lever (manual) won't engage

    This is a repeat of a question about the PTO on a 2018 Kioti CK3510HST. I think the original question was posted in 2019 but when you are old, time flies, minds wander. At that time, the PTO would not engage after sucking up a piece of 4x4 into a flail mower while clearing some tall brush. The...

    Right to repair - we WIN!!

    And as was pointed out early in this discussion, we will have to wait and see if the FTC can/will actually enforce their rulings. It could turn out like the Do Not Call list. :mad: Last time I listened, my phone is ringing off the hook.

    How happy are you?

    I have a CK3510 HST I got in late 2018. Use if for mowing, driveway maintenance, moving downed trees. First time tractor owner. Looked at Kubota, Massy-Ferg., skipped John Deere because of price. What sold me was the operator's area. I am 6'5" (and shrinking) and it had the most room for...

    Kubota L3901 HST vs. Kioti 4010SE HST Compact Tractor Pricing

    I ran into about the same when I was looking for a 35 hp tractor two years ago. What sold me on the Kioti was the operator's space. I am 6'4" and felt cramped on the Kubota. I love the Kioti and it has been easy to work on.

    CK3510 HST - PTO wont engage after mowing problem

    I am a fairly novice tractor owner and was mowing in high brush and brambles with a flail ditch mower directly behind the tractor and it caught and jammed a foot long 4x4 into the housing and stopped the drum. Belts screamed, I got the clutch in and disengaged the PTO lever. Got onto the road...
