    Grapple doesn't stay closed

    new QD installed (both male and female) and everything seems functional for now. I'll update if there seems to be any other problems, but I'm guessing this was the culprit.

    Grapple doesn't stay closed

    I'm going to replace this QD and see if that is the problem. It worked temporarily and then the problem came back - so I'm going to try and at least eliminate the QD.

    Grapple doesn't stay closed

    I spoke too soon - well, not fixed. i thought it was the QD and unfortunately i am back to square one. i am going to replace the QD on that side and see if that fixes it with a new one, instead of a tinkered one. Also, when I took the QD off there was a ton of bubbles coming up through the...

    Third Function / Grapple Operation

    I just removed both quick disconnects/connects and found one of them to be 'not as rigid'. I took it apart with a pair of snap ring pliers and cleaned them out and now it is working beautifully.

    Grapple doesn't stay closed

    I just hooked up my grapple after the winter (here in Florida) to move some debris. I haven't had it hooked up since before the tractor leak issue I posted some time ago (maybe 10 months ago) over in the RK Tractor section. Anyways, I hooked up the grapple as normal, and went to pick up a...

    Third Function / Grapple Operation

    Hey Don The FEL seems to be working fine. And for the most part the grapple works as it should movement-wise. I can open and close it, tilt and go up and down. The problem is that the grapple won’t stay shut and won’t shut with any force if there is any debris like tree branches in it. Once I...

    RK 55 HST Cab regen symbol

    The regen problem has appeared to be fixed for now. I haven't had a regen since the problem with the wires was addressed. As far as the level bucket - still not level.

    Buying Advice My experience with Washington PA RK store

    Sounds like an honest mistake unless you’re a conspiracy theorist who thinks everyone in the world is out to get them. It’s clearly listed in their return policy. You make some pretty harsh statements against a company who has probably made policies because of its customers attempts to...

    Oil & Fuel Fluid leak

    This is the same leak as my post before. I have contacted the store and they are going to follow up with me tomorrow morning. I preface this, because the store has always been top notch to get me taken care of. I don’t want to post all of the stuff from before - hopefully someone will...

    Everybody ok?

    I haven’t really been checking the site much and most of the world is dealing with this pandemic. I just wanted to say that I’m praying that everyone is doing well and that everyone is healthy or recovering. If you aren’t or you’re family or someone you know is affected by this, my prayers...

    Oil & Fuel Fluid leak RK55HC

    So I just got home from church and pulled it out and looked and it looks like it’s coming from the big case that the driveshaft is going into. Here’s some pictures. It’s still wet but doesn’t seem to be actively leaking. It’s clear fluid like hydraulic fluid.

    Oil & Fuel Fluid leak RK55HC

    The best I can tell it is meaning from the shroud covering the driveshaft. At the front.

    Oil & Fuel Fluid leak RK55HC

    Well it’s been awhile since posting on here, been busy with the holidays and life and some personal issues. Been reading when I can and keeping up without responding too much. I did a little field dragging yesterday and parked the tractor in the driveway so I could shop vac it out. Later when...

    RK 55 HST Cab regen symbol

    I must admit the manual for the RK 55 has much to be desired. So the first picture is what was shown on my dash and the second picture is from the manual. I tried to conduct a manual regen - no luck. I let the tractor run for 45 minutes at 2000 rpm. It would go any higher. No other lights. No...

    Is Brian still around?

    I tried sending him an email this morning and then it was returned undeliverable! Interesting. I hope this isn’t a trend with RK. Not making me very trustworthy. Gunny

    Oil & Fuel RK 55HC 50 hour service

    Does anyone have the cross reference filters for the RK55HC tractor for the 50 hour service? Specifically the oil filter, HST filter, fuel filter, hydraulic filter and gas/water separator filter. I’ve looked up the ones on the rural king website but I haven’t been to cross them to a cheaper...

    This light just came on.....

    High exhaust temperature indicator. The manual is extremely vague and I have no idea what to do. I have been mowing about an acre when it came one.

    3-Point Hitch Lever fabrication

    So I took a stab at welding a small lever for the hydraulic top link. I welded it to a cable clamp and then clamped it in place. It was a rainy day project.

    3-Point Hitch Don’t laugh

    Years ago I chopped up a rusted three point boom because I needed the exact metal tubing to weld something else. Fast forward a year and I bought a tractor. I welded some new supports, a new piece of tubing and a new end cap. It’s really only going to be used to pull a manure drag around the...

    3-Point Hitch Hydraulic Top Link

    I only have two rear remotes. I tried B first and that one seems more like what markie said - it locks going forward, not when going backward - that is, pulling the lever or pushing it. It’s now in A and behaving like it should. Very smooth, stays in position and acts much like the controls...

    3-Point Hitch Hydraulic Top Link

    RK 55 HST Cab So I installed a hydraulic top link today and I originally put the connections in the B terminals on the rear remotes. The movement on the hydraulics were very choppy. And it felt like there was a stop gap when I moved the lever forward. Like a skip. When I put moved the hoses...

    3-Point Hitch 3ph sway bar question

    Not sure they are called sway bars. But can I put another hitch pin in the second hole? And if I can, will it prevent any movement at all? The reason I ask is when I have my carryall on the back, I don’t want it shifting from side to side as I drive. Will a second pin prevent that? Thanks...

    Carry All project

    Worked on a little something today. Tomorrow I’ll actually try and do some work “with” the tractor. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin...

    Update to purchase

    It’s been about a week maybe a little more since the delivery of my 55HC. I won’t write too much because I’m still aching from this summer cold - the older you get the more it feels like it comes from inside your bones. I’ve put about 19 hours on the tractor. I’ve mowed about 8 acres, 3 with...

    Nobody has "a case of the Mondays" at The Farm - RK55HC delivered this afternoon!

    Re: Nobody has "a case of the Mondays" at The Farm - RK55HC delivered this afternoon! The tool box, if you can call it that, sits just to the right of the washer fluid reservoir and above your rear remotes. If you need a photo of the mounting bracket, just let me know.

    New grill guard project on RK55HC

    After watching a branch almost javelin the front grill I thought it needed something a little more heavy duty. BEFORE AFTER Let me know your thoughts. It’s welded, and the top round pieces are PVC because the top and bottom edges were sharp. Bill
