    Newb looking for advice and info on a new compact tractor and attachments

    I have my rear tires filled with washer fluid. My tractor is pushed past it's limits all the time in the mountains and hills of East Tennessee. I've never had a flat in the rear tires but if I did, washer fluid is fairly cheap and available everywhere. I cannot recommend filling your rear...

    Kioti cx2510 vs tym264 vs Branson 2610 h

    Smart move, you'll be much happier and better off.

    For what you've going to pay for an X series and adding an FEL, I would jump up to a 1023E or 1025 R or competitors equivalent SCUT.

    Input and advice for adding tractor work to my skills

    I run a business with my tractor. I personally believe a SCUT is just too small to be practical. It's just not enough for most field work. I use a Mahindra 1626 shuttle. It's good 99%of the time.

    Kioti cx2510 vs tym264 vs Branson 2610 h

    Tires filled? I believe I stated in a previous post, those models I feel are too small. My previous tractor was a hydro. A Mahindra 3215. I rarely ever used high range. My current tractor is a 1626. It's a two range but it's a shuttle shift.

    customer services frustration

    I'd say it's laziness and/or unorganizated. Might just be lack of professionalism. Maybe they don't pay great and moral is low and employees just don't care. After being in auto repair for 30 years, I've encountered some crappy attitudes from parts people. Way more than good. How do they...

    Kioti cx2510 vs tym264 vs Branson 2610 h

    Same here. I used the snot out of my three range. After using a two range, there's no way I'd settle for two. That would seriously suck.

    Branson expansion

    Kind of odd because earlier this year TYM was saying they're dropping the Branson name and everything will be labeled TYM

    Thoughts on this guy’s experiences

    Go a little larger on tractor. If you have a Mahindra dealer nearby, I can highly recommend the 1626. The backhoe is impressive.

    Kioti cx2510 vs tym264 vs Branson 2610 h

    Still recommend next size up and three range transmission. Go Desantis!

    Kioti cx2510 vs tym264 vs Branson 2610 h

    I honestly feel they're all too small and light. I'd highly recommend go up a model. I also wouldn't even consider a two range transmission in a hydro. I have used both. I'd look at the CK 2610 or Mahindra 1626. I have 28 acres on East Tennessee. Plenty of hills and trees and I love my 1626.

    2008 f350 v10?

    Yep, buddy of mine bought a F-550 4x4 dump with a V10 when the 6.0s were blowing up left and right. Towed fine and it was very reliable. Logs and equipment were no issue. He later bought a 450 with a 6.0 and sunk over 10k in getting it fixed and bulletproofed. 10k buys A LOT of fuel. Not to...

    Kioti CK2610 vs Mahindra 1626 vs Kubota L2501

    After having a backhoe, I wouldn't not have one. I only use it for digging.

    The t474 is a really nice package but I too am fond of that t494

    Good deal, nice tractor! Should run a 6 foot finnish mower fine. Not a 6 foot bush hog.

    Non-standard grease fitting threads?

    Same issue. NO tractor place around here had them. Every hardware store I've been in does.

    Should I even think about 2 wheel drive

    After using both, I wouldn't even consider 2wd unless it was an antique for novelty/hobby purposes. Honestly, you could probably get away with something fairly reasonable in 4x4. I do what you want to do with 4x4 26hp and shuttle shift. You should look at Mahindra, Kioti, and Branson. Those...

    Best battery

    Things may have changed. I haven't bought one in at least 2 years. I can't imagine they would have any way of knowing it was in a tractor unless you told them.

    Make sure you have a good clean ground.especially at the end opposite the battery. I make my own ground cables with welding cable.

    Best battery

    I've had an RK for a couple years. Seems fine but I use my tractor almost every day. Wal mart batteries are actually pretty good. At least they used to be. Not sure if anything has changed recently.

    Highlander is a better quality vehicle. Hondas aren't what they used to be.

    All I know about VA is taxes are high, cops are tyrants, too close to the swamp.

    RK Tractor Prices

    All brands have gone up. It's not just RK. I paid $17,800 for my Mahindra 1626 in Feb of 2020. I doubt you will find that price today. You want to hear true crazy? This morning I saw an ad for a JD 3025e with a FEL and backhoe for $38,999. JD is on drugs.

    LX3310 vs. L3302

    I think you should consider looking at some other brands. Kubota (and JD) are seriously behind the times and way overpriced in this range.

    I never worry about costs. I look at the convenience and all the work I get done and that is a lot. It's absolutely amazing what one man and a tractor can do.

    Buying Advice The evolution of Chinese Tractors

    I see your point. I too think JD is over priced and over rated. My point so some people are just cheap. Then when they're stuff iss broken, they expect you to help them because they made poor choices.

    Introduction, RK Purchasing Team, Brian Evans

    The stores here look like a dumpster fire. Management is severely lacking. Moral seems low . Everything seems like an afterthought. I'm glad I followed my gut and didn't buy the RK37. Even though I REALLY liked the tractor, the store experience was a major disappointment. Honestly, it's very...

    I saw the nozzle boot years ago. I haven't seen one in a long time but I don't frequent lefty areas. I'm sure the fumes are captured and released out behind the building. It's all BS.
