Thanks. Yeah, it sounds quite high. With all going on, i forgot to check it since I had CommercialTire fill all four tires with beet juice. Guess they juiced the pressure up to tractor-trailer levels ...Thats too high. My OM shows 41psi max for the 35 and 40. Can't imagine it being any different for the 26. Mine are loaded and set to 35psi (maybe 30, forget). Not as low as deezler's, but I'm running R14's which require a few more pounds.
Ok stop looking for negatives. Yes it does overhang a lot but you will quickly learn to work with what you have.had my kb2475l installed recently for the ck2610 i bought last year (backhoe took for ever to ship). I didn't make much of an issue with the geometry of the hoe as it's mounted on the tractor; driving my dad's small kubota CUT as a kid, he never took the backhoe off, and had no problem using the tractor to plat several hilly lots and general ~hobby farm stuff. That kubota also had two seats (front seat doesn't swivel; backhoe has it's own seat). the ck2610 manual states departure angle is 21degrees.
However, the kioti has an "exit angle" MUCH worse than i could possibly imagine it's not usable day-to-day with it. I suppose it's not _that_ hard to install/remove; but I certainly hadn't planned on needing to do this every time. The kingpin of the backhoe is 4.5 FEET aft of the axle, and has slightly under 10" ground clearance. That's [pulls out calc] a TEN DEGREE exit angle. Worse than a sports car.
I own[ed] and 18' C&B flatbed with 5' ramps. even with SIX inches of blocks, I still scrape pavement with the kingpin; in dirt i have to did a food deep trench to load. I am trading that in for a 20', with custom 7 foot ramps, I hope to _barely_ be able to load/unload on pavement without jumping through hoops. How they designed it like this absolutely escapes me Just be forewarned you will be removing it a lot if you do general work with the loader.View attachment 742431
I should mention i have a CK20HST with the 6.5 hoe. from looking at your photos there is virtually no difference between yours and mine except in the length of frame, I believe that they stretched the frame for a couple reasons, to give more room on operators platform and 2 to be able to mount hoe without haveing to remove 3pt arms and top link. I'm 6'1' and my knees are onthe sides of the console and the seat is rubbing the plate on back of fuel tank with no adjustment. I cannot mount hoe without removing 3pt arms etc. which is a pain, easy off but pain to put on. Nothing is perfect when you make compromises to be a jack of all trades which is what our tractors are. So realize what the limitations are and make adjustments in your operation or attitude which ever.Ok stop looking for negatives.

Yes you have to put blocks under your ramps.
I have to do all that stuff with my kioti 6.5' hoe, I been using mine hard for 18 years now. I made ramp extentions with 3x12x4' oak planks. nowdays there are a number of places that make very nice steel or aluminum ramps that you can use.
If you browse other makes backhoe isssues on TBN you will probably find the Kioti Backhoes (which I think are still made by Rhino) are very well built and trouble free. I can mount mine in ten minutes or less and dismount in 5min. You need to connect your hydralics first and use the out riggers and boom to level and align while mounting.
