    I'd just though I would throw this out here, just picked this grapple up and it is in fair to good condition. Built very heavy duty with 3/4" plate, double lids, 3.25" bore cylinders for clamps. My plan is to cut this unit down to 54" and remove one of the clamps/lids as I have never had a use...

    China ST Trailer tires, I am done with them.

    Pretty much as the title says, I am done with China ST series tires. I know there is a few good ones out there, Greenball and Maxxis come to mine. But I can never find them and the LT tires I put on my dump trailer run cooler and don't squat as much as the junk ST tires. The LT are rated at less...

    I have found a nice looking Mckee and will use it mainly to open roads and blow banks back. Is it a good unit? durable? CJ

    Opening Road

    Spent the better part of 5 hours opening a 2 mile road for a friend. Tractor did well considering it was mostly hardpacked/frozen ice from the rain/-15 below temp swings we have been having + being packed in by snowmobiles. The factory bucket is just next to useless in snow. I will be looking...

    I also have a 10' insert out of 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" tube that I can use for a extension. This will easily pick up a 800lb 20+ft long power pole. The tractor will pick it up but will not curl it, so I have to be careful not to overload the curl,rollback cylinders. It was only about 4 hours to build...

    Boom pole

    I will be building a boom pole on a quick change attachment for my DK50. I have a 24' 2x3 tube that I will be using. Just curious what would be a good length to cut it to. I am thinking 15' but would like some personal experiences with these CUTs as to what they will handle. May also add a...

    Well we had our first snow, 18" of heavy wet stuff. I purchased a 8' heavy duty snow box and the Kioti handled it great. I was looking for a blower but after this weekend I don't need one. I did 4 large driveways and 1 parking lot from my old plowing accounts and it pushed very well. Most of the...

    Trailer with dovetail or not?

    I have been around heavy equipment for years and 1/2 of my trailers had dove and the other were straight. I am going to have Loadtrail build a trailer for me and I cannot decide. The option I am looking at is the 4" miltipurpose equipment dove assembly on a 22' trailer. Either that or a 2' with...

    450 or 440 inner air filter

    Rumor has it the the Bobcat tractors have a inner and outer air filter. If someone could get me the inner PN# for the filter I would appreciate it. My tractor looks like it has a place for it and I would like 1 in it. CJ

    looks like it will more than likely be a PJ 20' with a 2' dovetail, just looking for experiences with this brand. It will be hauling my DK50 at 8K lbs and a small loader at 11500 lbs. It will be outfitted to 15k rating. CJ

    Like the title says I am going to buy a 20' trailer with 2' dovetail. Has to have fold down ramps w/springs for the rear. Looking for opinions or a good source, drive over fenders would be nice but not required. So far Loadtrail is the one I am looking at the hardest. CJ

    50 HR service and a few observations

    Just completed my 50 hour service. I was going to save the oil for use in my woodsplitter and other misc stuff but after draining it I got my mind changed. The stuff is nasty. Very very dark almost black in a white bucket. Would need to be filtered to 3 mic or so to get most of the coloration...

    2 Wildkat econo's on the way

    Just like the title says 2 of them on the way, 1 for a customer, 1 for myself. I also have the hydraulics for both tractors. I am going to use mine then mod it as needed. I wanted a 66" but with the flex on these small loaders it makes me nervous, so the 48" it is. CJ

    New tractor on Saturday

    The DK50 finially will be here on Saturday! The 50's seem to be in demand had to wait for it to come across the pond. Big thanks to Bob at M.I.E. So far he has gone out of his way for me and I have not even got the tractor. Saved me a bunch of $$$ also. :thumbsup: CJ

    I have read enough posts both positive and negative about a snow box for these CUTS. Why do some feel these units can't push one. I see them on skid steers all the time and in my personal experience a skid steer is just about useless in snow. My best estimate is the tractor will weigh in at 7K...

    NEW 50HST

    I am awaiting delivery of my new tractor, [a little impatiently I might add] so I figured I would ask a few questions. I have been around heavy equipment most of my life and this is my first compact. I went with Kioti because of the specs and value for the dollar. How does the FEL perform? Can I...

    Now don't beat me up too bad, I am new to the compact tractor thing and I never thought I would own one but here I am. I have ran and worked on and built heavy equipment all my life so it was hard to talk myself out of buying a full sized loader but the reports on these smaller machines and what...
