    New Kioti TL-750 Track loader: Coyote Machine.

    D& D, Sorry it's taken me so long to reply to your question. I do really like the 750 Track Loader. It can lift more snow and ice/slush than imagineable. It can, (with it's Iron Craft brand 72" (deep floor)? bucket, lift the loaded bucket high above existing piled snow, (from my guys, plowing...

    New Kioti TL-750 Track loader: Coyote Machine.

    Update on TL-750. Found my Igland brand grapple; model GR-20, was leaking hydraulic fluid at the flat faced connectors where they attach to the track loader couplers. This was my mistake - due to thinking the O-ring boss flat faced couplers I attached to the grapples hose ends were O-ring boss...

    You DID truncate my statement, first by not actually quoting me and attributing my screen name to what you 'quoted'. Additionally, cutting and pasting pieces of what I said without stating you had done so, is part of the trunk action. You're not being able to find what I had stated is your...

    Tractor was/is a gift. Doesn't mean it's his first tractor rodeo.

    If quality of oil is not a factor then use recycled waste oil for that matter. It goes without saying that the correct type, viscosity and so forth are the key ingredients for any application, bar none. Quality is key to outcome and longevity of the machine along with periodic filter changes as...

    Not saying to or not to use TSC's home brand - Travelers, BUT, Kioti does sell their own Kioti branded hydraulic oil, which I've used in my Sany SY-50U 5 metric ton excavator, AND will be using it in my new, aforementioned brand new 750 track loader and CK - 4020HST cab tractor.

    If you changed it at 400 hrs, you should be good to go. Remember I NEVER changed it from factory through 1530 hours - and owned it from day one since 2010.

    DK-40se/hst noise from left front wheel area

    Hard to hear the noise but it is clearly coming from some part of the left front wheel area. Sounds like a clicking, ratcheting noise and is apparent in forward and reverse. It is there whether going straight or turning, and without 4x4 being engaged. Sort of sounds like a CV joint click, but...

    Oil brand used for your 50 hr service?

    I'd be interested in what brand fluid(s) are being used in your tractors if you're buying them yourself and either doing the install or having the dealer do it for you at 50 hours. As noted in a recent thread, Kioti's official position IS to change the transmission AND front end fluids as well...
