    Finally an OFFICAL Kioti FEL notice.

    Kind of crude in my opinion but at least it's an effort to rectify the issue/problem . I haven't done anything yet myself (haven't even checked if mine has cracked), but thought I would pass along the info I received.

    My wife got hurt

    Closing the sliding side door on her mini van today, my wife cut the end (from below the finger nail by the knuckle) off her right hand ring finger. She closes the door sort of like (a right handed) back hand in tennis. Her hand slipped off the handle and smacked against the door jam and the...

    Pond expansion ?

    We're going to be adding on to our rather small existing pond. We have to build an L shape that would be sized about 150'x 190'x (50' wide or so), and the wife has mentioned that she would like to get some fish. I was once told that depth has a lot to do with having fish survive due to our...

    Markham customer! I called on Friday (4-15-05) and spoke to Leslie to order my toothbar. Missed the truck by 1/2 an hour so she said that they'll make one up and ship it on Monday and I'd get it by Wednesday. Well, this morning I get a call from Leslie saying it will be at the terminal for...

    Rake Yard Rakes?

    I'd like to get a yard rake. The two I've looked at so far are a York rake at a dealer and KK at TSC. Both are 5'. The York rake comes with gage wheels installed for $575.00. The KK is $415.00. Is it worth the extra $160.00 for the York? Are there others I should look at/consider? Thanks.

    Why do you hate MTD?

    Am I missing something? MTD products are not all that bad in my opinion. I have several different pieces of their machinery that have served me very well. General maintenance is all I've done. I just don't get it . Gerard

    Spybot S&D Question

    I downloaded Spybot Search & Destroy and did the check. It found a problem (as they call it) called "DSO Exploit". When I click on the "+" sign to open the (folder?) it says Registry Change. To the right of Registry Change is a Rubic Cube looking icon. When I click on the "Cube", the Registry...

    All-In-One Printers....

    My printer needs to be replaced and I was thinking about getting one of these. I already have a scanner and a fax machine, but for what a "4 in 1" costs, all new would be nice. I'm not brand specific and I'd like to stay under $200.00. It would be for general use only. Any thoughts/knowledge...

    Check out this Bird!

    How Cool Is This??? Check out what some of our boys overseas did to their helicopter. Some Afghans are probably freaking out right about now. The story is: This very special Mi-24 helicopter is presently flying in Afghanistan, where it is no doubt causing quite a stir. God Bless the U.S.A.

    Can this pine be saved??

    The high winds that we had over the weekend uprooted this tree . Doesn't look to me as if the roots were very deep to begin with and the trunk did not grow straight. The 2 trees are growing next to the road behind a bank. Would like to save it but never had this kind of problem before. What...

    Backhoe ? Backhoe use, counterweight ?

    How much weight is good for counterbalancing my CK20 when using the BH? 112#'s is maximum weight as per the owners manual (bumper mount). I've noticed the front end can, and does, get very light at times. I don't want to fill the front tires and also don't want to fill the FEL as I usually use...

    CK20 Rear working lights...

    I bought these fog lights at Wal-Mart for $14.88. They are very small and put out 55 watts. The wiring is fool proof. I mounted them on a piece of angle iron (had some holes in it already) that I had laying around and then on an existing bracket behind the fuel tank. Piece of cake. I could not...

    Safety 1st? Right?

    I'm saying this after reading the threads about people being killed or maimed after falling or getting bounced off their tractor. I think the problem with safety is that we (in general) don't understand what the words "common sense" really mean. In short, sound judgment. We don't think of the...
