    PTO Shaft Extender

    I have a new PTO chipper/shredder. I have Pat's Easy Change quick hitch on my lower links. The added 4" m/l of Pat's render the PTO shaft that came with the chipper too short. I would prefer not to have to take Pat's on and off when using the chipper/shredder. Part of the concern is that the...

    Was A Little Surprised

    Happened to drive by a few tractor dealers yesterday in Southern Oregon. Could not see the whole Deere lot but there were a lot of CUT/SCUT sized ones I did see. The Kubota dealer did not have near what it normally would but there were more than I expected. The CAT dealer definitely looked...

    Battery Too Large?

    I just bought a used ATV with a Honda engine powered snowblower which I intend to sell. The previous owner changed the wiring so the clutch that engaged the augers was actuated by a separate external 12 volt riding mower / atv sized battery instead of from the ATV which was not included. Can I...

    Chain Harrow???

    The area around my home is mainly wooded with evergreens and a small amount of oaks. I rake and mulch the abundant tree droppings (needles, seed pods, cones, small branches, leaves, etc.) with either my bush hog or my non-tractor chipper/shredder. My goal is to integrate most of the vegetative...

    Debris Forks - 48" or 60"?

    I have a 72" bucket so I can get either size. If I get the 48" price is 25% ($100) less. Probably buy from Titan Attachments Debris Forks . Main use at this point is picking up dead, bare branches rather than brush. Some is broken up into smaller pieces. The fork lengths are 21" for either size...

    Buying Used Rotary Mower

    I have never owned or used a rotary mower. I have a small project on an acre or less with oaks, low brush, manzanita, tons of oak leaves, etc. that I need to prep for fire safety (Northern Calif.). At most once a year. There are oak branches on the ground. Basically want to leave everything...

    Oiling Drive Chains on 3 Point Attachments

    My Woodmaxx snow blower augers are chain driven. The manual recommends oiling the chain with a good quality oil and states that chain saw oil is perfect. My question is how do you oil your drive chains without making a total mess, dripping, spaying, squirting oil all over? I am not into removing...

    I Did Not Know It Was Possible To Do This! Or My Latest Tractor Mishap.

    I had just removed my standard 3 point quick hitch and installed Pat's Easy Hitch. I did not like how the frame of the standard one was interfering with adjusting the angle of the PTO shaft on my snow blower. I backed up to mount the box blade which was sitting on some blocks near the back. I...

    Telescoping Lower Links vs Pat's Easy Change

    Telescoping lower links or Pat's Easy Change. Not sure which is the best option. Have never used the telescoping links. Pat's: Pro Just lift and hooks onto implement. Lower price (unless I buy telescoping stabilizers). Con Still have to get the right angle between the tractor and the...

    Snow Blower Frustration!

    I have a 72" Woodmaxx snow blower on my 50 hp Kioti. Just broke another shear bolt. I have used regular snow blowers for years but this is my first tractor snowblower and do not know if I just do not understand it's capabilities or is there some other issue. Another way of asking is it me or the...

    Stuck Shovel.

    Used my Bucket Solutions clamp on shovel that I have had for a while for the first time yesterday late afternoon. Good news: Worked great removing an old stump. Very impressed. Used it on my quick attach forks. Other news: Can't get it off the forks. Jiggled it, pounded it, pried it, etc. My...

    Going to mark my fuel containers more clearly. Accidently put diesel in my 4 cycle wood chipper engine. Took a while to figure out the problem. Was getting spark, fuel, etc. but would not start.

    Should I Dump Almost 5 Gallons of Diesel?

    Got my fuel containers confused and put 2 oz. of Sta-Bil Fuel Stabilizer for gasoline into my diesel container. Probably no big deal but would rather get rid of the diesel than take a chance of any harm to my tractor. Am I being overly concerned? Obsessing again (LOL)?

    Moving Wood With A Gorilla.

    I tried to come up with a practical way to move wood from my wood shed to my deck where I stacked it to bring into the house as needed. Thought of building a 4'w x 6'h x 2'd or something similar wood box I could fill by hand from the shed, lift with my loader forks, and put on the deck. But...

    Removing Oil Filter on Korean Tractor???

    Hi All. Have a Kioti DK5010. Doing my first oil change. No luck in removing the oil filter. Used filter wrench, used short pipe on it, tapped filter with mallet. Have assumed that they turn counter clockwise to loosen as US vehicles. Is this correct? Assuming I am turning it the correct...

    Chipper Shredders and Pine Needles

    How do shedders do with pine needles. Do they get well mulched / chopped up? Do they need to go in with other foliage? My property is largely evergreen forested with pines, firs, and cedars so there a lots of needles, especially longer pine one. I am probably going to get a moderately priced...

    Quick Hitches Quick Hitch Fit to Implement?

    Installed my 3 point quick hitch today. It is the type that attaches to the lower lift arms and top link. Question is that the lower pins of the box blade are resting all the way down on the bottom of the lower hooks of the quick hitch. The upper pin of the box blade is well into the upper hook...

    Do Studs Damage Tires?

    Been looking at different types of studs for my AG tires. Some look liked they would grip more fully and less chance of getting ripped out which may not be the best thing for the tire. Overall, though, do studs seem to damage or cause greater wear on the tires?

    Raking Small to Large Branches, Twigs, etc.

    There are quite a few large evergreen trees in the area of my house. They drop lots of branches and twigs along with pine needles, cones, and other debris. The ground gently rolls around.

    Ratchet Rake Sizing to Bucket

    Going to get a Ratchet Rake for my Kioti DK5010, 72" bucket. Tractor width is 62.8". They come in 68" and 72". The 68" are more available and less expensive. Is there a disadvantage to it being 4" shorter than the bucket width??? Thanks for your feedback!

    Kubota Light Materials Bucket - Too Light?

    I can buy a new 60" Kubota Light Materials bucket that will fit on my 30.5 hp Kioti LK3054 at a reasonable price. My concern is the "Light" part. The dealer said it weighs 125 lbs. As a comparison Everything Attachments has a general purpose bucket that weighs 225 lbs. Obviously there is a lot...

    Buying a larger bucket.

    We have a 54" materials bucket on our Kioti LK3054 and want to go to a larger width. We widened our rear tires to an outside diameter of 61" plus for snow removal just want a greater size. The tractor with loader and loaded tires is probably at least 3600 lbs. and has 30.5 hp. The loader manual...

    How Hard Is Too Hard

    I use my Kioti LK3054 with the bucket and back blade to remove snow. This is my first tractor my 2nd winter using it. Since I was gone part of last winter my experience is very limited. I have never used chains on it. I just ordered Duo-grip ladder combo chains for the rears from

    Mounting on bucket.

    I tried to find out in Attachments what was common but I will try to ask my question here a different way. I am going to modify a snowplow to mount onto the bucket. The typical approach where the bottom of the bucket (the meat) is sandwiched between 2 mounts (the bread) with the plow held in...

    Chains/binders or ratchet straps?

    Loader Bucket Attachment

    I am modifying a snowplow blade to attach onto the loader bucket. If anyone has attachments that fit over the lower lip of the bucket, what does the space between the lower and upper part of the fitting that captures the bucket measure?

    Wiring lights directly to battery circuit.

    I was considering hooking my work lights into an existing circuit which I discussed on another thread and have decided on another approach.

    Can I use this circuit for work lights?

    I have a Kioti LK3054. I intend to add 2 forward work lights and one backward on the ROPS. There is a 6 place connector off the back that I am pretty sure is for attaching trailer lights. None of the contacts are hot with the key on but one gets hot with the headlights on which I am thinking of...

    Carport Brands?

    PTO Shaft Sizes?

    We are selling a Howse rear mower. A fellow came out today to buy it but it turned out that the distance between the teeth on the female end of the mower is 1 3/16". He has a New Holland/Ford mower which requires 1 3/8". Is it common to have different PTO shaft sizes on different brand...

    Canopy - plastic, fiberglass, metal?

    We just bought a used Kioti and need a canopy for the ROP. There are a lot of choices including coated steel, aluminum, plastic, and fiberglass.

    Novice operating exerience....

    Kubota L3000DT or Kioti LK3054?

    Both are very clean, parked inside, and original owners. The Kioti has somewhat lower hours. The Kubota is somewhat more expensive and a couple years newer. The Kubota is 32HP, the Kioti 30.5HP. The Kubota is about 2200 lbs, the Kioti 2900 lbs. Any compelling reason to go with one or the other?
