    Where to buy fluids?

    I misread the manual - transmission FLUID only needs to be swapped at 400hrs ... break-in/50hrs only changes the transmission FILTER. it was transmission fluid i can't find ... so i guess i'm OK for now. motor oil wasn't as bad for availability - Rotella 6t has good opinions; I ended up with...

    Where to buy fluids?

    New Kioti CK2610 HST- A few problems

    I spoke with the dealer - he had a couple thoughts (besides this being a common problem) do *not* use the clutch. He said on the larger ck10's there is not even a clutch lever at all ... his take was it's basically an "Oh Sh!t" lever - disconnects everthing. he volunteered what i read from...

    New Kioti CK2610 HST- A few problems

    New ck2610, about 15 hours so far. Same problem: very difficult to get into gear from neutral. For me, from neutral to Low succeeds about 1/3 of the time; into Mid or High, almost never without some "pumping". I have been doing this by: start in neutral depress clutch; cannot push into gear...

    The Little Tractor that could, CK2510

    Funny how this works - i have just sand and easy soil; and we will be buying a couple rocks like this for a firepit area. Always greener, lol.

    nOOb to chaining down - is this sufficient?

    based on what observation do you say this? chains are 5/16, with 5/16 hardware. WLL of each is 4700#. Divide by half due to "attached from vehicle to load". So 2350# per chain There are 4 chains, giving an agregate WLL of 9400#. Tie-down loops (used in the back) are 6300# each (in the...

    failed locking pin on locking chain grab hook - am i doing it wrong?

    Let me emphasize that although i have a technical background, i know nearly nothing about the "right" way to transport. The first points in my OP are that standard grab hooks obviously work fine, but given the option for "standard grab hook" -plus- "retainer clip" i'll choose the...

    nOOb to chaining down - is this sufficient?

    I have a technical background, and understand statics and dynamics. I don't believe that's the issue here. And for what it's worth, i did google (well, DuckDuckGo for me). What i find, unsurprisingly, is lots about statics, and also lots about what various orientations of parts (hooks, etc)...

    nOOb to chaining down - is this sufficient?

    I'm with you there - never considered using one chain with an un-anchored / 'floating' clevis ... I'm using a chain & binder at each of the four corners

    failed locking pin on locking chain grab hook - am i doing it wrong?

    5/16 chain in a 5/16 hook The hook is advertised as "5/16" not "5/16 to 3/8" (I don't pretend to know the exact difference here but it makes sense its not 'loose' width-wise on the 5/16) Does anyone else think it looks mismatched, or have a similar locking hook they could share a pic of when...

    failed locking pin on locking chain grab hook - am i doing it wrong?

    FWIW here is a better pic of the (import) hook i have: I see a few domestic mfg's that have a better (more space between the grabbed link and the locking pin) design, albeit at (much more $$) grade 100: or a totally different design that looks a lot more robust (and if the 'pin' DOES get...

    failed locking pin on locking chain grab hook - am i doing it wrong?

    pretty new to chaining anything. For my grade70 chains i dedicated to my tractor's trailer, i bought 'locking' style clevis grab hooks because it makes setup a tiny bit easier (no dropped hooks before i get it snug), plus theoretically in a "bad event" where there was a some momentary slack...

    nOOb to chaining down - is this sufficient?

    OK, this seems minimally sufficient. I don't love: The single contact on the rear (draw bar); seems plenty strong, but not as stable as two (?). Good angle on the chains, though On the front, there is just no factory frame or axle location that can tie down at a 'good' angle (to the proper...

    nOOb to chaining down - is this sufficient?

    I'm sure this'll all get easy for me in a few trips - but it doesn't appear to be any way to get the chains diagonally without resting on part of 3-point system... I will probably stop by the local farm supply (close by) to see if i can get a shackle or pin large enough for the hole in the draw...

    nOOb to chaining down - is this sufficient?

    Is this _better_, or just easier than what i have? A reason i care a lot about this is half my drive between lots is idaho55 - curvy, 2-lane, along a river, NO barrier, more and more idiot drivers every year taking the curves partway in the opposing lane. ~Every year someone ends up in the...

    nOOb to chaining down - is this sufficient?

    The kioti finally arrived! This is my first time using chains, and securing something besides a car (wheel straps) regardless. I've searched and watched the YouTube's to no avail Are my rear chains OK here on the axle? Until a big pin shows up in the mail I can't attach to the draw bar. My...

    Just pulled the trigger on a grapple ... was going to wait until late winter ... but they are 4-5 months out, so if i wanted it by spring, no point to wait. They were 4-6 weeks or so out on less complex things like forks.

    W.R. Long 3rd function kit -vs- OEM

    here's a good close-up of the OEM for my particular brand, if you're comparing it to your WRLong one of the odd things is Kioti's take on this puts the valve immediately under the left floor/step; while it has sheet metal covering it - it still seems pretty exposed. Also, there is a great...

    W.R. Long 3rd function kit -vs- OEM

    I'm not finding much direct comparison between WRLong third functions and OEM kits. I am considering installing it myself (mainly to learn more about maintenance). Both kits are virtually the same price. I'm on a kioti, and the instructions are from what i read - but i care more about...

    48"/4200# vs 42"/2200# Construction Attachements / EA forks for CUT

    I ordered the 2200#/42" from EverythingAttachments ... should be useful. I can't pick up 2200# other than possibly just off the ground; so should be plenty strong.

    Loader CK 4010 with WR Long 3rd function

    I'm looking at the Kioti oem 3rd function versus WRLong or custom - how's the OEM holding up? Any thoughts on OEM versus any of the well-known aftermarket kits, or any pain-points, lack-of-protection, or other issues with the Kioti kit?

    oem-kioti -vs- WRLong 3rd function kit (CKA162)?

    The owner of EverythingAttachements felt WRLong was "very" superior in quality to the OEM kit ... they seem like a great shop BUT they do sell WRLong ... so hard for me to take that advice. Did you find any downsides to the WRLong vs the OEM that you were looking at initially? Quality, routing...

    oem-kioti -vs- WRLong 3rd function kit (CKA162)?

    I am 90% going to buy a grapple next spring. So am considering adding the factory 3rd function before the tractor is delivered. It's about $1200 installed (2/3 parts, 1/3 labor). I'm pretty mechanical and can install my own (although given reviews of the CKA162 instructions its worth the...

    48"/4200# vs 42"/2200# Construction Attachements / EA forks for CUT

    Probably in a "normal" year? The dealer only has 4000#/48" units, which they buy in bulk yearly from Construction Attachments ... they quoted me a couple month lead and $200 more for the lighter, smaller forks. [I don't think they are scaming me - my salesman quoted that, and said outright i...

    Posthole Digger TSC CountyLine Post Hole Digger Success

    Thanks - I just ordered that. For the $500 price diff, i'll use the backhoe :) it's not that many uses - and it does seem suspect on the 18" w/ 20hp pto (despite what the EverythingAttachements rep thought...)

    County Line Post Hole Digger - Watch which one you get!

    That was my intuition (no direct experience) - however this afternoon i talked with Everything Attachements, and they thought that it would be no problem, given the gear-down in the unit. The limiting factor in soft soil they said would be letting the drill get ahead of you and suddenly be too...

    Front-End Loader BUCKET SPADE TODAY // FEL BUCKET ATTACHMENT

    Hi Jeff - yes, thanks to your other posts I understand that's the conclusion (and I believe it to be correct, in that I would certainly not be able to fully use the stump bucket, severely limited on both pushing it in, as well as curling or backing up / ripping roots, at least with full...

    Front-End Loader BUCKET SPADE TODAY // FEL BUCKET ATTACHMENT

    another interesting question - I see in several threads (not *all* Jeff lol) consensus seems to be that my ~4500lb (with FEL, BH) tractor is much to light for a stump bucket. HOWEVER, if i were to go for the nicer clamp on (seems to be the BucketSolutions model, above, $500 - I fail to see how...

    how deep can I run a subsoiler (for running pipe) with ck2610

    county says frost line is 24" for my specific location... granted i'm in "low elevation" [relative], but still i agree that seems really high - so i came up with 36" simply from the available subsoilers ... which as pointed out here, are not at all possible with my rig.
