    Who else? Remember I am an uninsured, joe-blow homeowner. Not a licensed contractor.

    Dealer I bought the machine from did not rent implements.

    19 hours on it now. Absolutely love it. So glad we went with the 4701, I love the larger size and increased power. Im sure at 20 hours I should probably go through and grease a ton of shit.

    Haven't even gotten close to getting stuck yet, no need for chains at all.

    Rear mount blower is a bit of a pain, but it is SO nice having the bucket still to move banks and back drag.

    Buy a Lock-n-Lube grease coupler for your grease gun. It makes things go much faster. With the backhoe attached, I have somewhere in the vicinity of 50 zerks so any time saved adds up quickly.

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    I resisted buying that expensive grease coupler. I should not of. Well worth whatever they charge for it. I will probably own a cordless battery powered gun before I am done. Way more of a chore than I realized.

    I hear you should check every single bolt as well. I had a number of loose-ish lug nuts and one loader nut that took some torque. I pain penned mine after that first tightening and nothing seems to be moving now.

    I seem to be having trouble keeping oil in the front axle already. (Under 30 hours.) Not sure where the hell it is going because it isn't on the floor of the garage.

    That's not in any way normal. Is it possibly seeping out during usage? Also make sure you are on a level surface when checking.

    When I check my Kubota, I'll put a level on the axle to check for level. I'm also not above shimming one side in order to get the axle level prior to checking fluid level. I was caught out once by an uneven surface and thought I lost a quart of fluid. Not a great feeling.

    Possible. I do not know. It has to be going somewhere!
    I checked it parked in the garage every time since fall.
    I poured in somewhere between 1/4 and 1/2 quart. Last couple checks since oil has still been on the dipstick. I will keep watching.

    Have also found a fitting on the loader that is weeping hydro oil. Naturally the fitting is between hard lines and impossible to get a wrench onto.

    Another gripe is that no matter how I leave the loader bucket positioned it seems to collect water somewhere.

    finally, above freezing long enough to thaw any water in my Toe Hoe hydraulics, it came out pretty muddy, getting new filter and fresh fluid, I'll probably run it a couple hours, and change the filter again

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    My daughter has had a "probable" contact with a positive covid case. My wife decided that she would quarantine me away. She and the kids own the house and are brining me food. I am only allowed outside or into the basement. Transiting through I am wearing a N95.

    Decided to use the opportunity to get some work done. After lunch I sparked the Kioti up, hooked up the backhoe and went to work. Few hours later I have 4 stumps pulled and disposed of. Holes are backfilled and grade is more or less hand-raked in. We shall see how much this settles.

    This old oak stump was by far the biggest of the bunch and took over an hour. I had another smaller oak stump that popped right out. I also pulled two larger pine stumps that were all tangled up together and a bit of a thing.
    I probably wouldn't have gotten this oak stump out except that it was cut 6-8 years ago. It wasn't decomposing nearly as fast as I'd hoped. But fortunately it was a bit tenderized. Still had to go at it with the pickaxe and steel. Really excited to have this crap out of the way. I've been mowing around this shit for years.

    After that I dropped the bucket, loaded up the forks and moved 5-6 more loads of 6-8 year old blow down out of sight into the woods.

    Massively productive day!

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    I have been surprised, digging stumps with my ToeHoe, I have found oak, to be easier than red maple or hemlock, but the thing that makes any stump tough, is being intertwined with boulders, if the roots are just in sand or glacial till without rock, they come out a lot easier,

    so far, only a strip along my back boundary where my firing range is......which side of a stump fence is the "good" side ? I decided to lay mine with the stump facing the neighbors side, and the roots facing my side

    Soil is sandy at Sunapee. Cut the tree about 4’ off the ground, then push on it from each side. Smallish trees but so far they come right out.

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    I splurged and ordered a hydraulic top link for the box blade. Even after tightening the jam-nut with a wrench, my top link kept loosening up over time which messed with the angle of the blade. Now I'll be able to set it from the seat.

    Re: Tractors - Educate me

    But wait, there's more. I was not happy with how lumpy the lawn was after all that work. Even though I made a gazillion passes back-dragging and filling in ruts with the hand rake. Today on a whim I hooked up the grader blade and went at it trying to *just* skim the tops off the humps and filling in the holes. First couple passes I was sure I'd made a huge mistake, made it worse. A few more and it started to make sense. Another round of hand raking and now I'm satisfied! Ready for seed.

    I'm actually relatively pleased at how even a grade I was able to set just making little adjustments with the position control. I still wish I had an implement with tines. But not bad. Not bad at all.
