    Got my EA attachments this past Friday. Carrier banged them up a bit so there were many areas with paint chips. I have to say I am pretty shocked how thin and fragile the pain job is. Wan't expecting that at all. I've beat the heck out of my tractor and I am still hard pressed to find a scratch...

    Sawmills, sawmill buildings, drying sheds, and kilns... show your pictures!

    Ah. Yes. I've thought about building a solar kiln but the budget isn't there for that yet. I was thinking more of a shed for air drying buy I might go this route. Considering a barn build come springtime.

    Sawmills, sawmill buildings, drying sheds, and kilns... show your pictures!

    Anyone have some good plans for a drying shed? I am starting to build one and have an idea in mind but I am open to seeing what other options folks have come up with.

    Hydraulic Pioneer Couplers - tape/fluid or no tape/fluid?

    Dealer sent me the manual. No mention of sealant and no description as to what types of threads.

    Hydraulic Pioneer Couplers - tape/fluid or no tape/fluid?

    Most likely this would be where the hose connector is going into the pioneer couplers like the guy did in the video at minute 21:40 and 22:40?

    Solvent like brake cleaner fluid?

    Hydraulic Pioneer Couplers - tape/fluid or no tape/fluid?

    I assume this is something I could probably pick up at a local Tractor Supply store. Maybe at a Home Depot or Lowes? Any particular brand? I also assume that the threads need to be cleaned off before applying the the thread fluid. Any particular procedure to do this? Sorry for all the...

    Hydraulic Pioneer Couplers - tape/fluid or no tape/fluid?

    Installed my DKA144 3rd function valve kit per the instructions and I have leaks. The directions say noting about using teflon tape or threadlock. I have leaks however. Got the hoses and couples threaded together pretty tight. Not really sure what is going on though. Was I supposed to use some...

    Are tractors waterproof even if they have a cab?

    Thanks everyone for the feedback. I've been tarping it while the deal waits for the parts to come in.

    Hmmm. This is a Kioti DK6010SE

    Are tractors waterproof even if they have a cab?

    This might be a completely ridiculous question. But honestly I never thought of it until I busted out the window on my cab. I'm assuming that the underlying tractor is the same as a tractor with ROPs and can be exposed to the weather without worry. Of course there's the issue of a wet seat and...

    Sawmills, sawmill buildings, drying sheds, and kilns... show your pictures!

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask but since we're on the topic of sawmills when I roll my Mill down the track where the two sections meet there's a slight bump we're the one section is probably less than an 18th higher. Is that going to cause problems?

    It's a temp for now to start milling the structural lumber for a milling shed.

    Are you using the feet? Wouldn't the cross 4x4's need to be where the feet are?

    Advice attaching a winch to a Kioti DK6010SE

    I have a 12K lb Harbor Freight winch. I see there is a towbar adapter to attach one of the many winch mounting plates out there. Quest is what is the best way to get power to that winch?

    Sawmills, sawmill buildings, drying sheds, and kilns... show your pictures!

    Yeah. I was thinking that after seeing image after image with folks having their mills set up that way. I'll need some more cinder blocks and potentially more lumber. 4x4 are still a bit narrow I think. This is a temp setup which is fairly central to the property. I'm hoping to get it up on a...

    Sawmills, sawmill buildings, drying sheds, and kilns... show your pictures!

    Need a little advice on this setup. What I have are cinder blocks with 4x4 pressure treated lumber on it. Originally this was all going to be on the grounds but I decided to elevate it. Thought it might be adequate but I am questioning what this is going to be like with the saw head on it since...

    We talk a lot about grapples here. Thoughts on other attachments? Specifically box blades and landscape rakes?

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    Probably true in most circumstances. I have to consider what the delay means for getting jobs done that need to be done now or at least soon. Paying someone is one option. Renting equipment is another. In the end both leave me with a job done but nothing to use for future projects or simply...

    My Kioti dealer was selling HLA grapples. I forget what they quoted me but it was for an older model.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I dunno. Those are awfully neat rows of asphalt. Grapples can do that? I don't see the angles on the grapple to do that. Just sayin. The picture just strikes me as odd at first sight. Something just isn't right.

    Pinnacle series? Define "working the jeebuz out of it." I find people's definitions very subjective.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I will say I kind of like the raw look of the unpainted grapple. If it weren't for rust I'd prefer to have mine that way. At a discount of course. Paint and labor savings. ;)

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    Well, if that first picture isn't staged I don't know what is. Somebody dumped a pile of asphalt in an open field and snapped a shot thinking no one would notice.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I think so. If you can keep the bucket low and push it might not be that bad but then you don't get much leverage. You have to lift the bucket which extends the hydraulics and makes them vulnerable. At least that is how I understand it.

    Well, Ag couplers leak a little too when you disconnect.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I was having this discussion the other day. I can get rid of an ant pile multiple ways. I could use spray or I could use dynamite. They both get the job done but do I really need something as extreme as dynamite to do the job a spray can?

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I don't think I would call myself a hobby user since I am clearing acres of land of brush trees and rocks and building rock walls along the way but I don't expect to be doing a task this large ever again. Well, maybe to move logs. I kind of think I might be milling my own lumber and others for...

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I've considered that route but I am clearing land so I need to move brush piles, logs and rocks. I'm also thinking that a grapple is likely going to excel, over other attachments, at building rock walls with stones too heavy to lift and place by hand.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    Any chance you are under-promising and over-delivering with your time tables? Woodland Mills pleasantly surprised me delivering a month after ordering. Their lead times were supposedly 6-12 weeks. Of course they are having their products assembled overseas so it is not the same as manufacturing...

    Part of me wonders if he should have been doing some of that with a grapple in the first place regardless of brand. I'd probably use my bucket to push over trees before I put a grapple to them.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I don't doubt the greatness of a Wicked 60. I don't even mind paying a premium. My biggest problem is putting a large part of my project on hold for 4 months waiting for it to arrive. That and maybe having to go pick it up at a business or shipping location. I don't have the means to transport...

    Why does location matter?

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    Right. Same price as if I had to pick it up locally which is why I would have it shipped instead of getting it locally. Too much time and hassle to pick it up for the same price. Only benefit would be is if I needed now and couldn't wait.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    Actually, I have. There is a shop up the road from where I bought my tractor that carries them. They seemed pretty heavy duty when I looked at them. And they are indeed heavy. Probably heavier than I want. It also struck me as odd that the cost to purchase them online and have them shipped was...

    Hydraulic coupler advice

    I guess if I also owned a skid steer and wanted to swap implements between the two then flat face might be the way to go from the start. I hear your argument and will probably go that route.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    True. Definitely not questioning the quality. There is a reason there is a 4 month wait for a grapple right now. But EA is also pretty solid from a marketing perspective so there is that adds to the demand. I've heard good things about Homestead too(and other brands) although I don't think I've...

    Hydraulic coupler advice

    Got it. I am told the Kioti 3rd function kit comes with Ag style or Pioneer style couplers. But I see a good number of videos that say flat face are easier to keep clean and easier to connect/disconnect. Maybe ordering the attachments with flat face and then getting flat face to pioneer...

    Hydraulic coupler advice

    Hmm. I am honestly new to all of this. Are you saying use the same attachment that comes with the 3rd function kit?
  43. F

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I suppose you could be right. But is that 100lbs in exchange for a weaker attachment? Then that extra 100lbs you could lift might come at the expense of damaging the grapple. Tough call.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I've looked at them and was pretty impressed. Nothing I wanted was in stock though so I moved on. I'll need to check them out again.

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I have not considering Kioti attachments as they are often more expensive and not always great quality. That and my Kioti dealer was selling HLA grapples. Does that mean they don't think Kioti grapples are any good or was it just a supply chain issue? Question for me to ask.
  46. F

    EA Attachments vs Homestead Implements

    I don't really doubt in my mind that the EA is stronger. I guess the need to have a grapple now, or at least soon, makes me wonder if the extra 2+ month wait and the extra $1000 and I have to pick it up at a business or terminal is worth what might be a minimally better product. I'll be using...

    Hydraulic coupler advice

    I'm getting a 3rd function kit and some attachments and was wondering what is the best coupler to go with? Seems like the flat face couples always come as an option for attachments for some extra $$$. Are they worth the extra money?
