Memories of the tricycle WD45, ahhhh. Now we have tractors that have souls. Never owned one 'cause of the three point issue. My ex friend Warren, the pig farmer, backed that tricycle gear rig up in a rush, hit a pile of rocks and turned the tractor over on himself. Pinned down, the coroner said it took 15 hrs or so to die with his cell phone just out of reach. So to all machine operators, whatever is your poison, speed kills and the few seconds saved is just not worth it. Laughing at the pig farmer? He was one of the worlds great philosophers and just did not care about material things. I miss him.

He taught me to say things like "If any of you suckas stand between me and a Wherle 100, I'll rub you out". I was always a lousy student.

Just last weekend I saw what appeared to be a really well built small orange diesel tractor at a local Home & Garden show, and I thought all along I was looking at a Kubota until I finally recognized that it said Kyoti, and not Kubota, I believe it was the Kyoti model CS2410 with bucket loader and back hoe. Has anyone got any opinions on this brand of tractors? They are from South Korea.

The Kioti tractors are really nice. I know a few people that own them and they couldn't be happier.....4 year warranty to boot. JD is only 2 year..........you have to pay extra to get a warranty with Kubota. :?

I went to a Kioti dealer before I found my JD. They are priced right but I didn't like the foward and reverse pedal or where the FEL control is mounted (both similar to Kubota). Besides that they are very well built and solid.

There was an issue with the tractor I bought and John Deere was aware of it. When I discovered it the dealer gave me all the parts free of charge. How long I owned it or warranty never came up, they just sent me on my way with all the parts they knew had to be replaced.

Have it ten years and other than that issue it has been trouble free.

I finally got one!! I got my hands on a ford 1920 with 1200 hours on it a couple weeks back. The only problem with it is that it won't get in the garage with the ROPS on!! Unfortunately, they never made a folding ROPS for this unit and you can make the factory one folding easily because the uprights aren't parallel! A new ROPS is in the design phase and it will stay off any hills until I get something figured out. The nice thing is the tires are set 7' wide on this machine currently! Have to watch the sides of the garage when pulling in...

The second pic shows the Rachet Rake that I picked up to maintain the driveway. Put in some test runs with it this weekend (cut the excess of the straps as well) and all those on the side of the garage and in the driveway are scared to death.
