    Adding a step on the right side of a CK2610

    They probably cheaped out on the new CKs. I believe the DKs are a higher end model. Yours probably even came with a stock floor mat!

    Adding a step on the right side of a CK2610

    Has anyone done this on their CK series tractor? With fender mount loader controls there is plenty of space to get on from the right side. Only 60 hrs in I can't count the number of times I "hoisted" myself on the right side already. Step is like 60$, just wondering if anyone has installed it on...

    New wood chipper : guess the brand/model

    Not a Titan either. My best description would be a supersized Woodmax TM-86H. Very similar, but with bigger, thicker flywheel, and most important, a bigger feed opening than the TM-86H. There really is nothing comparable in the market and I am glad I went through the trouble of sourcing it direct.

    What kind of Box Scraper?

    I used to spin all 4 tires. Now with filled rears it's close, but I tend to stall before I lose traction. So I am putting all 25hp to the ground, just running out of steam with a full box. Edit : I tried this again, and it will pull the full 72" box in dry sandy loam, in low, very slowly. I got...

    New wood chipper : guess the brand/model

    No not a Betstco. My chute is perpendicular to the wheel, while the Betstco is at an angle. Lots of similarities of course. My feed box is 8"x8", the BX62R is 6.5x12. I suspect the angle feed needs more power per log inch, as you are exposing a bigger surface to the blades. Also looked at the...

    New wood chipper : guess the brand/model

    The high chute angle is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand it is a bit of a work out to get full trees to engage the roller. On the other hand, it really helps to feed the small stuff. If I had to redesign I'd cut the angle in half, best of both worlds. Especially since I don't burn...

    New wood chipper : guess the brand/model

    The big difference is gravity feed vs variable rate hydraulic feed. The "chuck and duck" gravity feed chippers are really hard on the drivetrain, as they tend to make the log jump up and down, with way more impact force than variable rate hydraulic feed. They tend to eat shear bolts too. I guess...

    Flail Mower Let's talk flail mowers

    This my new flail mower, an AG-140. 54" cut, hydraulic side shift, 24 800g hammers. It strains the CK2610 a bit on startup, and I have to go slow in the thick stuff, but I am glad I went with the heavy duty version. I have "plowed" some not so flat areas, and while I have no rocks on the...

    Ebay Pallet Forks? G2G or no?

    Unless you want to do "creative" stuff with your forks, like pop out small trees or rocks. then the thicker forks give you a bit more safety net against bending. I have 48" forks 4k forks, and they are unwieldy, but I would not trade them for 42" at this point. More then once that extra 6 inches...

    What kind of Box Scraper?

    I have a Woods BSM72P on my Kioti CK2610 (similar weight to your tractor). I wanted to make sure I could cover my tire width. It's heavy(680lbs), so it makes for decent ballast also. To be honest when full it is a bit much for my 25HP, and that is in soil. Rocks would probably stall it. I just...

    New wood chipper : guess the brand/model

    Correct, although to be fair I have chipped mostly garbage soft woods (poplars/willows/sumacs). But I do feel I could just slow it down a tad to chip hardwood. Wallenstein gravity feeds at an angle, and their hydraulic feed has a straight chute, like a Woodmax WM-8H (which may or may not be a...

    New wood chipper : guess the brand/model

    This is my new wood chipper. So far it has been very good. Hydraulic feed, variable rate, it will chip whole trees without limbing up to around 6".

    CK2610 HST filters doesn稚 match

    Yeah I'm not eating the cost of the filter. I'll return it tomorrow, and get another gallon of oil (just put in 2.5l, and I can't even see it on the diptstick). They also owe me the stock drawbar for the tractor, they never delivered it when I bought it. They threw in the clevis drawbar on my...

    CK2610 HST filters doesn稚 match

    i just got burned in a similar fashion, but just by a lazy parts clerk. The Hydraulic filter they gave me was T5710-38031. So the last 4 numbers were correct, which passed the smell test. Same deal, threaded hole is much too large. Now I have filter with some oil in it, that is incorrect. 42$ in...

    50hr filter change on a CK2610 HST : how much fluid will I lose?

    Of course you can't go wrong with replacing the fluid. But the service manual says only filters are required at 50hrs. I suspect dropping the hydraulic oil at 50hrs is unecessary in most cases, but I have to admit it does give piece of mind. Looks like I will get a "sample" when I change the...
