    Availability

    They have had some Kioti's over the past year, but sporadically. They also sell Massey, plus several lawn/turf brands. The only tractors they have currently are 2 Massey GC's and a larger one that came in this week.

    Availability

    I stopped at my local Kioti dealer yesterday and asked about when they expect some tractors as they had none. I was told they ordered last year, but were told the next shipment would be Spring 2022, so it must be a regional issue.

    Oil (Engine and Hydraulic/Transmission for 2019 GC1725MB)

    I'm due for to change the hydraulic fluid/filter in my 1723E. I have researched the forums to see if substituting a different hydraulic oil instead of the the Permatran 821XL is acceptable. I stopped by my dealer and spoke to the service manager asking for the appropriate fluid. He said they...

    Zero Turn Tires

    I've had Carlisle Field Trax on a JD X500 and the Carlisle Versa Turf's currently on my Massey subcompact. The Versa Turf's have been better with traction and not tearing up the lawn than the Field Trax, but the Field Trax were still pretty good. My property is all hills and most are fairly steep.

    Tilt Steering Won't Tilt

    I contacted my service manager, who offered this solution, which worked: "The steering shaft that comes through the fire wall down to the steering gear is frozen. On that shaft you should see a couple of knuckles. I would bet the knuckles just need some lubrication. Try using a non lithium...

    Tilt Steering Won't Tilt

    The tilt steering on my GC1723 won't tilt. The lever to do so works, but the steering itself column seems to be locked. I haven't tried to move it's position in a month, or two and have been conscious not to grab the steering wheel while getting on the tractor. It's a 2020 with only 37 hours...

    Turf tires vs r4’s

    You can check out Carlisle Versa Turf's, a combination of R4's and a Turf tire, plus it is a radial tire. I replaced the R4's on my Massey GC1723 with the Versa Turfs and they are fantastic, as I have a lot of hills and they provide great traction. They also have a nice ride and don't tear up...

    Wheel Spacers for GC 17xx Series

    I'm interested in 2" wheel spacers for my GC1723. Bro-Tek lists 1.4" & 3" spacers, but doesn't show 2" ones. Bora has them, but are there any other sources for 2" spacers and are longer lug nuts needed than stock?

    Congrats on your purchase! I bought my GC1723E last October and love it! It does what I need as far as snow blowing and mowing on the steep hills here. I put Carlisle Versa Turf tires on it and it helps with traction, yet doesn't tear up my lawn. I'm sure it will do all you need, so enjoy!

    I mowed my lawn for the first time today with the Versa Turfs. The traction was excellent on my hilly property and they did not tear up my lawn, nor leave impressions in it. I mowed last Fall with the R-4's that came on the GC1723, which did leave some impressions. The grass/ground was...

    Traction Tire Swap - R-14 Versa Turf In - R-4 Out

    I live on a property that is all hills, my driveway included and since this will be my first winter with my new GC1723, I was concerned with traction and how the R-4 tires that came on it would perform. I read what seemed like a million threads on this site about the R-4's traction (or lack...

    Snow New GC1723 Owner - Snowblower Attachment Issue

    MF Red and irvingj, thank you for all your input and help, I appreciate it. I attached the cylinder in it's correct position and the locking lever had enough room to clear and flatten the pin, which allowed more play in the hydraulic lines fixing that issue. I attempted to attach the...

    I am a new owner of a GC1723 and am attempting to attach the MF2360 snow blower to the quick hitch, however there doesn't appear to be a way to secure the blower to the hitch as the lever on the hitch won't allow the "pin" that is supposed to fit in the groove of the blower to enter the "slot"...

    Snow MF2360 Sllkid shoe Question

    Thanks DMW. I did some research into the manufacturer (RADtech.ca) of the Massey, Kubota and other snow blowers that you related. Kubota offers skid shoes (part #77700-05889) for the BX5450 blower, however, you are correct that they don't come with it. Since it appears that the Massey 2360...

    Snow MF2360 Sllkid shoe Question

    MF2360 Skid Shoe Question I recently purchased a GC1723E and the accompanying MF2360 snow blower. I see it has rear skid shoes, but no side ones, although there are holes on the lower sides where ones would normally attach. Searching the schematics of the MF2360 shows no side skid shoes...
