    I have an odd question for older DK50C owners

    I have a 2002 DK50C that doesn't have a rear windshield wiper nor heated rear glass. It's a real pain in the butt when I am blowing snow and I have to stop every couple of minutes to clear off the ice on the glass so I can see. Does anyone know what year Kioti started adding rear wipers and...

    Woods Blower keeps snapping grade 5 bolts

    Bought a woods blower a couple of years ago for my 50hp Kioti and it works like a dream, but recently it has started snapping the grade 5 shear bolts. I can hand turn the auger and then I will turn on the pto, and it instantly snaps the shear bolt. I was working great the week before, but now it...

    2002 DK50c Shudder?

    So I was driving the tractor and all of the sudden it started shuddering- not in the engine per sae, but the whole tractor was shaking like someone grabbing the side and shaking the vehicle. I stopped forward motion and the tractor itself was still shuddering. I dropped the box on the 3 point to...

    2002 Kioti DK50C heater issues

    I don't need the heater yet, but now is the time to be thinking of doing repairs. ..... I use my tractor in the winter to plow my 1.5 mile long driveway, and the stock heater just doesn't put out enough hot air to keep the windows from fogging up. If I put my hand in front of one of the two...

    Is there any size of tractor that is too big to add a backhoe on it?

    I am looking to move up to a larger tractor from my Kioti DK50C to a bigger tractor- 75+ HP and was wondering if there was a size that was too big to add a backhoe? I am thinking probably Kioti, Kubota or New Holland.

    I live in California and most of the used tractors are on the east coast I live in an area with very few used tractors and was wondering if there was anyone out there that has a service where they will check out used tractors for buyers across the country (not sure what it is called). We have a...

    Curious about dependabilty

    I have a 2003 DK50 and I am thinking about getting something newer. There are a lot of features in the newer tractors that weren't on the older ones. I was wondering if the newer tractors which probably have a lot of electronics in them are fussy. Does anyone know the year that Kioti started...

    I have a 2003 DK50c with about 1200 hours on it

    and I am thinking about upgrading to a newer, larger, hydrostatic drive Kioti or similar tractor and was wondering what year I should be looking for with the best value. I use it for snowplowing, and general work around my 10 acre property. My tractor runs great, but it is a little underpowered...

    I have a woodmaxx 84" snowblower that keeps popping it's 5/16" grade 5 shear pins. Would I be asking for trouble if I moved up to a grade 8?

    Spring has sprung and I put away the rear blade

    and I went to put the backhoe on my 2004 DK50. Everything was working fine last fall when I took it off and put the rear blade on. So I dropped the blade and backed up to the backhoe and hooked up the hydraulics and when I was operating any of the backhoe joysticks, there was slight movement of...

    How do I replace cable?

    2002 DK50 C using the joystick that operates the FEL up and down, the cable broke and thus the bucket no longer goes up. So I ordered a new cable, but I cannot figure out how to take the old cable out of the joystick block. Attached is a photo. The front plunger is the one with the broken cable...

    DK50 Rear Wiper

    Does anyone know the year they put the rear wiper on the DK50? I have a 2002, and now that I have got the Woodmaxx blower on it, it would be helpful to have a rear wiper so I can see what I am doing. I don't think I can drill the glass to put a manual wiper on, so I am hoping I can get the glass...

    Woodmaxx Snowblower Shear Bolts?

    I just got a SB84 for my DK50 tractor, and the shear bolts which came with it for the PTO to the gearbox are snapping like twigs. The manual says they are grade 2, with I would expect to break very easily. What grade are you guys with the same blower using? Grade 5? Grade 7? I was blowing...

    DK50 Toplink Sticky

    When using my lever for the toplink, it is "sticky" as it sticks in whatever position my hand leaves it in and doesn't return to center; which accounts for lots of 3 point implements slamming into one position or another. Is it as simple as siliconing the lever or more involved? Also it moves...

    Snowblower  Just got my Woodmaxx snowblower and I need some advice

    I bought the American Made PTO driveshafts for it and when I try to hook it up the blower PTO shaft slides onto the tractor PTO Spline until it gets to the ball detent. Then will all my might I pull back the sleeve that releases the locking "balls" and try to push the pto shaft from the blower...

    2004 DK 50 Heater Blower

    So does anyone have any ideas how I can turn up the amount of heated air being blown from the heater? The low setting is pretty much the same as "off" and the high setting I can feel just a "breath" of hot air being produced. The fan seems to be working fine, but I don't seem to be getting any...

    Light weight wood chip bucket or modifications?

    I have a Kioti DK50 and I am moving a bunch of wood chip mulch around. The 1/3 yard bucket is the equivalent of a wheel barrow load. Since the chips are so light, I'd like to find either an oversized bucket, a poly bucket (if they make one) of some sort of easy mod I can do to increase the...

    Options for rear wiper on a 2004 DK50C?

    Planning on getting a snowblower this year, and I want to keep the glass clean. The back windshield currently does not have a wiper (nor any holes for a wiper) and I was wondering what my options are?

    Looking to buy a blower for my Kitoti DK50

    Living near lake tahoe, we usually get adorned with really wet, sloppy snow which in most cases causes normal snow blowers to quickly clog up. On my Honda blower, I added some HDPE in the chute and that helped a lot. Does anyone know of any 3 point snow blower manufacturer who SHIPS their units...

    Bearcat 74554

    Last year I bought a used 2004 Kioti DK45 and it came with a bunch of attachments. One of them was a Bearcat 74554 5" chipper. The thing looks like it has never been run.... it's been sitting out in the sun, so the paint is a bit faded, but there is very little signs of use. I was thinking I was...

    Not an attachment, but still useful

    When I am digging a trench with my Kioti DK50, I often encounter rocks in the trench. I soon grow tired of digging the side wall out to uncover the rock. There are several products out there you guys and gals should be aware of: Dexpan- expansion agent- drill 2" hole, mix up and pour in and...

    Since I am winterizing my DK50C....

    I might as well ask other questions too: New to me 2003 DK50C- just turning 1000hrs. My manual tells me to check the "Oil Pressure Filter"..... pray tell, what is that and where do I find it and how do I check it? "clean fuel tank" - is that a common thing to do if the tractor isn't...

    Land plane questions

    I spotted a used land plane for sale and I was curious if anyone knew anything about the Terrabond brand? It looks like the blades are fixed in a horizontal position (90 degreees toward the direction of travel), rather than an angled position (45 degrees off the direction of travel), does that...

    Radiator hoses looking a bit brittle on my DK50

    So I was planning on replacing them. Problem is I have a cab with a heater in it. When I drain the radiator, I am assuming the water will drain out of the lines going to the heater in the cab (located on the roof of the cab). I would assume when I put new coolant in it, there will be a air...

    Mushy hydraulics?

    I'm sure this has been covered before, but Tractorbynet won't let me do a search, so I will ask again: On my Kioti DK50C the bucket hydraulics seem a little "mushy". It's not as responsive as I am used to on other tractors. The motions are rather slow and somewhat hesitant. Anything i should...

    Oil & Fuel  Was reading a thread about greasing the zerk fittings so I pulled out the grease gun

    and started greasing the fittings on my DK50. I noticed one fitting missing and a few of them weren't taking grease. So I went to grab my socket to unscrew the fittings so I could match them at the auto parts store, and low and behold, I cannot get the socket to reach the fitting. The socket...

    Wiring in LED lights to my DK50

    The front two work lights have black and yellow wires going to them (no problem) but the back two have a Black, a Yellow and a White with a red stripe. What is the white and red stripe wire? Can I ignore it and wire up the rear LED lights without using the white with red stripe? I would assume...

    Just purchased a used tractor....Headlight issue

    The sealed H4 headlights seem to have had a leak which allowed moisture in the lights. Upon closer observation, along with water on the inside of the lens, it appears the silver coating of the lens has turned black pretty much everywhere; thus when the headlight is on not a lot of light is...

    Buying Advice  Looking to buy my neighbor's Kioti DK50c

    Several years ago, a friend of mine was selling his (i think the year is) 2004 Kioti DK50C, and my wife wouldn't let me buy it (long story)- but I talked my neighbor into purchasing it. Now he wants to sell it as he is buying a New CAT tracked skidsteer. My neighbors and I share a 1 mile long...
