    DK40 fuel issues

    My buddy has a DK40 with just over 400 hours. He said he was running it this past weekend and ran it really low on fuel. He did not run out but he said there wasn't much left, nor did it sputter. He grabbed 10 gallons of off road diesel, filled up the tractor and then his problems began. He...

    My wait is over, look what just arrived!

    I ordered a Woods BH90-X with a hyd. thumb and an 18" bucket for my MX5000. I was barely able to unload it from off the delivery truck. I borrowed a buddies forks for my loader. The shipping slip claims the hoe and bucket weigh in at 1950 lbs and the sub-frame on another pallet weighed in...

    Backhoe Woods BH90-X question

    I have a buddy who just bought a John Deere 3120 with a backhoe. I was at his place and he showed me how the down riggers don't extend very far therefor barely lifting the rear tires off the ground. It looks like the majority of the weight is off the ground but I was wondering if this is...

    Kubota MX5000 backhoe hookup

    I'm looking at getting a Woods BH90-X backhoe for my MX5000. It has a Woods LC108 loader on it already. My question is, is it better to purchase the PTO pump with the hoe for $1295 or run it off the tractor hydraulics? The tractor's pump is big enough to run it as far as I can tell but which...

    Chimney Pipe question...

    Okay, I think I know the answer just by logic but I want to make sure and I can't seem to find the answer and the local stove shops are closed. I am in the process of installing a direct vent LP fireplace and a wood burning stove. The venting pipe for both stoves will be running up the same...

    Dang I love this machine!

    I just have to say that I am continually impressed by what this thing can do. Buying this tractor has been one of those purchases that I have absolutely no regrets about. Today I cleared a path through some very thick brush, going down hill, with my AnBo grapple. That is another amazing...

    Rankin equipment...is it any good?

    A dealer a few miles away carries Rankin attachments. What do you guys know about them? Anyone have any experience with their stuff? They didn't have what I was looking for on hand just a catalog of the item. I was interested in the 30 series medium duty 6 way back blade 7' wide. They...

    Price Check Price difference between MX5000 and MX5100?

    Anybody know? I read that the MX5100, which replaced the MX5000, has a turbo charged engine and a syncro-shuttle transmission. I'm just assuming the turbo was added to offset the new 2008 emission standards because they are rated at having the same PTO hp of 44. I wonder if the fuel economy...

    Finished with the install...

    I just got my lights installed, both front and rear. With my new Wells Ag canopy, they were easy to do and it turned out very clean. I don't have any exposed wires due to the flexible plastic conduit that I ran along the side of the ROPS. I haven't seen what kind of light they produce at...

    Which grapple?

    What brand and size of grapple do you have? I have a Kubota MX5000 (50hp) and was offered a deal on a demo model Anbo grapple, 72" (GR-S). I think it weighs in at about 780 lbs. The lift capacity on my loader is about 2175 lbs. From everything I've read, they recommend a grapple that is...

    Mistake with a bucket grapple?

    I have an ATI bucket grapple that I've been trying to use to pick up brush with. I think I need to fabricate something on it so it will do a better job or try and sell it and pony up for an Anbo grapple rake. The problem I'm having is that unless there is a huge pile of slash/brush, it falls...

    Finally...

    Well, I finally did it...I just purchased a new 4x4 MX5000 and boy is it nice! How do you think I did on price? I payed $23,100 for the tractor with R4 tires loaded with ballist, and a Woods LC108 loader with a 72" Q/A bucket. I added a tooth bar and an ATI bucket grapple and valve for a...
