    Kioti DK45 Tractor | KB2385 Back Hoe | KODIAK Brush Hog - heavy equipment - by owner - sale
    nice old school tractor.

    i had one for more than 10 years.

    from the pictures i find the hrs very hard to believe.

    i sold mine (cab version) many years ago with unbelievably low hrs (around 350)

    mine still looked new.

    if you told me it had 3k hrs and has been left outside its life i'd believe you.

    while its a nice tractor they had a few issues that you can work around.

    also i wouldn't pay anywhere neat that taking its condition into account.

    i think i used the toy on the back called a back hoe maybe 3 times.

    i'd never buy a tractor with a backhoe unless it was strictly to resell.

    got a text out to burgler as well
    when i picked mine up (with just a back hoe, front bucket and forks)

    it was heavy and towed ok with a 3500 dually duramax on a trailer rated for 12k lbs.

    it was a pia to get the weight correct on the trailer.

    what weighs 3,373 just the back hoe, cause its not the tractor.

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    We seriously debated backhoe or not.

    First thing I learned was the first projects we wanted to do had rocks too big for a tractor backhoe. The first two projects required a much larger excavator. Project three was removing stumps: we had 14 stumps ground for $750 as they were too big to even budge with a tractor backhoe.

    A local shop rents excavators for $1,000 a week.

    The backhoe on my little Kubota gets used more than anything else. Backhoe + thumb = magical wonder tool.

    Throwing this out there anyone with tractor knowledge/experience and would not mind looking this over with me would be appreciated. I'll feed you and pay for you beer/drinks.
    Sent you a few links last night. Chase down that L2500!

    On that Kioti, I absolutely agree with sandman, the hours are suspect at best.

    Put Ofa Eco chains on the back and ATV diamond lugged chains on the front. Makes a huge difference plowing and working in the woods.


    The snow a couple weeks ago wreaked havoc on the trees. Tons of small Hemlocks down across the trail, plus two good-sized Birch. So once again we won’t be cutting any standing trees for firewood, just harvesting leaners.

    I have pondered buying a lathe, but just one more of too many hobbies, I have a friend who makes bowls. He donates them to fundraisers in the professional associations, over the years, I have managed to win 4. H uses a lot of birch, but whatever species, he always uses old stumps, big knots, burls, etc, to make bowls that have grain or spauling rot for character

    We plan to turn that Birch into smoke....

    There are some larger trees that we will save the butt for turning. Have several friends that do it. One makes a living at it.
