    Setting Park break

    Living on a mt. side and needing to use the break every time I stopped I came up with this idea. It worked perfectly for 6 yrs. on my CK27 and now I've done the same mod on my 2610 Kioti .

    Rerouting exhaust

    This is how I eliminated breathing exhaust and having it blow up dust in my face. The piece of trim above the step I installed to keep the floor mat in place because I kept hooking it & pulling it up with my toe.

    seat maintanance

    For those who don't mind a patch so save a few bucks a tube of shoe goo type vinyl glue and a vinyl patch will give you a no. of more years out of a seat before it comes apart. I've done this in the past on a tractor seat as well as a motor cycle seat just as they show signs of cracking. I never...

    Tractors nearly 2 now with 450 hrs. so thought I'd do something I should have done last summer as the cutting edge was badly warn. Good opportunity to use my plasma cutter for some experience as i did the last one with a cutting torch. Still required 1/2 hr. with an angle grinder.This edge is of...

    12 volt heater

    Read a post here some place about 12 heaters so for $36 I thought I'd give one a try. Haven't put it to the test yet but will tomorrow as it's nice and cold out. On 150w luke warm are and on 300w warm enough it's bound to make a bit of difference since the cab fairly comfortable just from the...

    Finally after 2 summers & nearly 400 hrs. of having dust blow up in my face from the exhaust I did something about it today. Was a little trickier than the last tractor I had but not to bad.18" of flex pipe ( that's the longest they will sell it here) & 4' of tail pipe. The writing on the pipe...

    CK27 won't start

    My CK27 with 150 hrs. decided not to start a couple days ago . Turns over fast enough to bring the oil pressure up in 5 sec. and all the lights work. Fuel is good but not a lick of smoke out of the exhaust. I've eliminated it down to the fuel shut off solenoid . With the backhoe I can over ride...

    coffee cup holder

    This is the third cup hold I've made for equipment and I think this one turned out the best. I used a ABS coupler. After installing it I went up the mt. for a bucket of fire wood and it held and worked great with easy access. I've considered buying one in the past but never found any that...

    Stuck a 45 W LED on the back of my tractor & since the wires were handy right next to the original power supply I plugged them in to come on with my headlights. I only use the tractor to plow my own place with a 3 point plow so it can stay on with the headlights and not bother anyone. If it...

    most likely a controversial mod.

    Since I bought the Kioti I haven't liked the height of the ROP ( 8' ). Yesterday was the day I'm not a professional welder ( fabricator) so had a little apprehension not that it wouldn't be solid but that it would still fit and not look top bad. I've learned from welders in coffee shops and...
