    Leaky front swivel seal...again (DK series)

    Well $80 later the new seal is in on the '06 DK45C. Fortunately I bought this giant snap ring pliers set to take a turbo apart with, so I did have the right tool for the job. So to save the next owner a lot of time doing useless stuff like taking everything completely apart.... Remove the...

    Axle housing leaking...again...

    Bleah. Opened the barn to find a huge tidal wave of 90 wt trailing into the center drain hole in the floor and coming from the RF axle. The very same one I repaired three years ago. Guess I know what I'm doing tuesday....

    Trackhoe base for 3 point BH attachment?

    Forgive me if this has been covered. I have a fine 3 point sub frame detachable backhoe that is great for what it can do on a tractor. I find that there are many instances....mucking ditches in particular...where I wish I could turn the whole mess 90 degrees to the tractor. How wacky an idea is...

    Slo Blow 60A fuse woes

    Just for your edfification, I spent a good half hour trying to figure out what the problem was. Good power from battery to terminal lug on starter, but no power to ignition switch, lights etc. Checked slo blow fuse and it was good. Still nothing. Finally just tried wiggling it ( I know, real...

    3-Point Hitch Pulsing, jumping lift when cold

    I have noticed lately that when I lift the mower deck or the bush hog or whatever is hooked up to the TPH, it kinda bucks and jumps until things warm up. Anyone else experience this? Not sure it is a symptom or a feature. '06 DK45 SEC. Tanks

    Windmill FAIL

    finally got round to putting up the pond aeration windmill. It was going pretty well until the thing was about ten feet up. At that point the fiberglass pole I was using for a support gave out and the thing came down head first. I think I can save some of it, but it's pretty jacked up. As they...

    Kioti vs irene

    Had to whip out to the Eastern Shore to get stuff up out of the way of the coming flood. Property is waterfront on a creek a half mile from the Bay. Couldn't have done it without the DK45. Moved several engines, lifted a transmission, giant roll of fiberglass cloth, and more too numerous. Hope...

    Front axle seal fix

    Before anyone else has to spend hours figuring out this darn thing, let me tell you how to replace the "floating seal" on the axle steering housing. The secret is that there is no secret to getting it all apart and back together, except that you need a really really good pair of snap ring...

    Blown front axle swivel seal

    Opened the barn door to find the floor covered in a big oil stain. Obviously originating from the DK45 since there weren't any Land Rovers in there at the time LOL. Anyway, investigation revealed that the oil seal on the front axle (passenger side?, OK right side) had failed and half the...

    Canopy DK45 Cab puzzlement

    OK I must be an idiot. About two thirds of the way up on each rear corner are two welded brackets that are kinda L shaped. I have had this tractor for three years and have never seen any reference to these things anywhere in the literature or on the web or anywhere. Are these actually for some...

    After taking so much grief, I suppose I must show what I have been working on. Here is the progress as of yesterday. Total investment so far is about 11 million dollars, not including my own time. The frame is made from 1.5 inch fiberglass square tube and glued with West Sysytem epoxy and...

    Your time is not free

    I see so many threads where the poster claims they only have a few bucks worth of materials in a project. I always calculate my own "shop hourly rate" into my projects to see whether I am actually saving money by doing some of these things myself. My personal rate is $90/hr. My current wind...

    200 hour service calesthenics

    Gosh, I thought Rovers were hard to work on. Did the 200 hour service and it about wore me out. Granted I wasn't as prepared as I coulda been...shoulda done my push ups more regular. Anyway its done (DK45 Cab) and I feel better now. Air cleaner in particular was kind of a PITA to get out, as was...

    Chains Can i make a dk45 into a turbo

    Am I wrong or is a dk55 nothing more than a dk45 with a turbo? If so can one simply add the turbo manifold and turbo and be done? There may be other small details like exhaust plumbing and such. It would be nice to have the hp. Am I nuts?

    How do you say it?

    I find myself pronouncing "Kioti" as if the first syllable rhymes with "key". Like "Key-Oh-Tee" I don't know if this is unusual or if it's just my Maryland sneaking in. I guess it's supposed to be pronounced like the canine, "coyote". "Kye-Oh-Tee" Yup, Friday and not much happening at the moment.

    Adding second remotes, what can I do with them?

    As I mentioned in another post, I picked up a brand new unopened second remote kit for the Kioti DK45 Cab on ebay for a ridiculously insane price. I haven't installed it yet (no time) but wonder if it will be usable to power quick tach implements like grapples. I assume it works like the current...

    iPhone in the cab

    Next up on my list is a way to incorporate my iPhone in the tractor (Kioti DK45 cab). Oddly, I get pretty good reception...even 3G the cab. My problem of course is that have to stop what I'm doing to answer a call or change what's playing on itunes. I'm looking into integrated...

    Cattail Killer, or how to clean up around the pond?

    Here's the deal...I have a small 1/2 acre pond that's part of the septic system. It's got a gentle slope into the water of maybe 10 degrees. The berm is somewhat soft when the water is high and in the summer it's rock hard when the water is low. The best time to cut is obviously when the water...

    Looking for yokes & ujoints for Gravely PTO shafts

    OK I know this is just a lawn tractor, but I know someone will have an answer. I have several PTO shafts for this old Gravely riding tractor. Some were clearly for a 400 and some are for an 8000 ( which is what I have). What I'm trying to do is make a 15T to 13T double u joint for the snowblower...

    hydraulic power to quick attach implements?

    Is there anything that would allow one to have a separate hydraulic line to the front of the loader for powering attachments? Can you tap into the hydraulic circuit for the FEL? I assume that you'd have to have another joystick controller for the implements circuit. Does Kioti make a kit for...

    Try not to drop a wall on yourself.

    You hate to tell people thse stories because it makes you look so stupid, but here's a small testimonial to the cabs on the DK45. I was dopey enough to think I could raise the end wall of my new barn by myself using only gravity and the loader. Keep in mind this wall is only 32 feet wide and 16...

    DK45HST Cab Pics, stereo?

    Thanks for the pix Wallace. Am I seeing things the right way? Is that a cassette player in a brand new tractor? Just curious if this is a popular thing in Korea over a CD or even an MP3 player. It's a nice feature to have in my '06 DK45C, since I can listen to all my old Depeche Mode and ELP...

    Cab roof removal

    One of the chores ahead of me is a small repair to the fiberglass portion of the cab roof which will require the roof's removal. Has anyone taken one off? Is thee anything specific that I should be aware of? It looks more or less straight up as far as taking it off goes.
