    AT&T Fixed Wireless Internet

    I live in the Sierra Nevada foothills, in a rural area. No cable, no DSL. After suffering with Dish and Exede (Hughes) for the last five years, with speeds of ~3mbps, along comes AT&T with a cellular alternative. I've had it a month or so, and it's GREAT! Usually over 50mbps, even when it's...

    If you struggle to see the hydraulic oil level...

    I couldn't check mine without readers and a flashlight - couldn't see the fluid well enough. Easy solution - Go to a Deere dealer and get part#MT3668. Should be ~$6. It is a bottle of red dye for hydraulic oil, so you can easily read the sight glass and/or dipstick. Pour it in, run a couple of...

    Excellent service!

    My 2014 tractor has been leaving spots of hydraulic fluid on the concrete - nothing big, just threw a handful of kitty litter down and continued to run it. Last night, after sitting in the warm garage a couple of days, it had a sizable puddle. Loaded it on my trailer this morning and hauled it...

    Great service from Ken's BoltOnHooks

    I placed an order Friday night at 5:37 PM on the website. They shipped on Saturday, and it was in my mailbox at 9:13 AM on Monday, in spite of the banner on the website stating to expect shipping delays due to high volume. Excellent product, outstanding service!!!!

    Really?

    An add appeared on the side here for this disc mower, so I followed the link - and the "quality" mowing it showed looks awful. Krone North America - Special Offers Makes a brush-hog look like a finish mower.

    Another new GT48DXLS owner - Thanks to TBN

    A huge THANK YOU to all the folks who posted about this model. For the last three years, we have lived on five acres in the Sierra Nevada foothills, with some steep slopes and lots of oak trees. We have about half an acre of "lawn", the rest is native grasses and weeds. About two acres of...

    Lawn tractors, yard tractors, garden tractors, SCUTS, and mowing

    I have five acres of Sierra Nevada foothills, with most of the property consisting of oak trees and native grasses. Current equipment is a Kioti DS3510 with a brush hog and a flail mower, and a beat up old Deere L120 riding mower. The Kioti is a bit large for some of the slopes (trees get in...

    Husqvarna YT48DXLS or Deere X570?

    I have 5 acres, 4 of which is oak trees and native grasses, with some steep slopes. Most of it gets mowed with my Kioti DS3510 and either a 5' brush hog or a flail. The wife wants to be able to mow, and has been making do with a Deere L120 that was left by the previous homeowner. It barely...

    Broke my joystick...

    I have a Kioti DS3510 that I had to make a quick dismount to the right from, and I broke the loader control in the process. I fabbed an aluminum bracket to replace the obviously broken one in the linkage, and got it working without replacing the entire unit (they don't sell the broken part, and...

    Mowing advice needed, please

    We moved to the mountains last year, to a 5 acre property with some pretty steep terrain. Included with the property was a JD L130 riding mower with a 48" deck. It's ready for a transaxle, and I'm debating replacing it with something else. Our lawn is small. I bought a Honda walk behind...

    FOPS for my DS3510

    I was inspired by a few members here http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/kioti-owning-operating/172572-roll-cage-new-steel-roof.html and decided to avoid some of the bloodshed when operating under the oak trees at home. I wanted to use basic shade-tree engineering (aka TLAR) and not weld or...

    New to tractors, Kioti, and TBN

    I moved to the Sierra foothills last March, to a 5ac parcel with a few hundred oak trees and some steep terrain. The need for something bigger than a riding mower was immediately apparent, and I soon acquired a Mitsubishi CT210D off Craigslist - 21hp, 4wd, diesel, 30 years old. It soon proved...
