Fuel supply issue (?) on Kioti LK3054
Oct 14, 1. Hello: New guy here looking for some help. I bought a used Kioti LK and have put a couple hours on it mowing a little and moving it around the farm. It's about a model and has a 3 cylinder diesel engine. Several days ago I started it up and backed it out of the barn. It started okay slow as usual, but I need to replace the battery cables. It ran for less than a minute then sputtered and died.
I jumped it from my truck and cranked it over but it won't start now. I replaced the fuel filter assembly in hopes that was the issue. I'm new to diesel engines and Kioti tractors so I don't have any experience to draw from when diagnosing the problem. Tried purging the air from the system but I haven't been able to make any difference. After reading a bunch of posts in this forum and watching several videos I'm out of options. I will try to upload a picture of the fuel pump so you can see what I see.
There's just a small amount of fuel coming out at each "pump" when I loosen an injector. I don't know what the proper amount looks like. There are small white puffs of smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe. I have videos of the injector and the exhaust pipe but can't seem to upload them here. I don't see signs of water in the oil or oil in the water.

The air filter is clean. The electrical system has already been stripped down to it's basics lights and blinkers were removed but it has ran fine in the past. I've ordered a new ignition switch and keys but I don't think that's the problem. It was about 80 degrees outside on the day it started and died on me. What's the little dial for on the side of the fuel pump?Click to Post a New Message! Post: Kevin Barrett in MI Post: I have to say I was quite impressed with the LB As I mentioned to the dealer, I have my mowing needs met with an Exmark Commercial mower, so this opens some other options for a tractor.
Most of my 25 acres is wooded, 3 or so of it is mowable. What impressed me is the weight of the unit, just shy of a ton. Also the hydraulics seem to be oriented towards serious work. It appears that the LB could get a fair amount of work done.
Does anyone here have real world experience with the LB? Is it as good as it appears? What are it's shortcomings? I'm a little concerned with the However, the dealer said that it would run a tiller with no trouble. He also said that he has personally sold over a hundred of these in the area. Don't know how that translates to real world longevity, but extra weight is appealing to me.
I also looked seriously at the LK It appears to be yet another fine option. Not sure on how maneuverable this would be? The dealer mentioned that either tractor has a very tight turning radius. I sort of overlooked the LK because of it's lack of a shuttleshift.Forum Rules. Home Forums Reviews Articles Store. Homepage Today's Posts Search Register. Forgot your Password? Sign Up. Remember Me?

Spring has sprung and I put away the rear blade and I went to put the backhoe on my DK 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 the associated hydraulic cylinder, but literally milimeters of movement.
So I switched the connections and nothing happened.
I've got a hydraulic tilt for my rear blade and I hooked it up to the Hydraulic line and when I pulled the lever the tilt worked, so it appears there is some sort of issue in the backhoe.
Can anyone enlighten me as to what is going on? I cannot get any of the joysticks to do any sort of movement. I checked the hydraulic fluid and it seems fine.
I am perplexed. I've been messing with this over an hour and cannot figure out why it won't operate. Enlighten me someone. Reply With Quote. Re: Spring has sprung and I put away the rear blade There should be a lever or hydraulic hose connect to the 'power beyond' function of your tractor.
In 'A' or 'B', hydraulic pressure is also routed one of the rear ports to supply the backhoe. Hope this helps. Re: Spring has sprung and I put away the rear blade Are all of your rear remote levers centered? I don't have a backhoe but I've found if the levers aren't both centered my hydraulics don't work.

I put it to work right away in my landscape and grading business. The only problem that I ever had with the tractor was when the front axle broke loose because of faulty welds from the factory. A welder friend re-welded it back in place and it's been running ever since. I have recently purchased two Kubotas and do not use the Kioti much, but she is willing to go after sitting for months after a little warming from the glow plugs. The hydraulics for the loader leave much to be desired but other than it is a solid machine.
Has needed a valve cover gasket and water pump over the last operating hours. While I rent equipment to excavate the holes and trenches, I've used the for back fill and final grading around the site. I've put over 80 hours on it in 3-months and it has been a solid tractor. I'd buy another one in an instant. I've had the glow plugs fail, and right now the differential lock won't engage, but I suspect these will be easy repairs.
To date. I've moved over 1, tons of gravel during construction. We live in the mountains and have used it to clear snow, grade driveways, level building sites, etc. Has the KL loader with a 54" bucket which is a little light duty but has served our needs. I will be putting a 60" bucket on it sooner or later to clear a wider path of snow.
We also have a 5' box scraper and a back blade. The power and traction seem adequate for the equipment we have. It has R1 AG tires which provide solid grip for most activities, but I still found it beneficial to purchase chains for the rear tires for the traction I want at times in clearing snow.
Tractor is pretty basic without all the features of newer ones. It would be nice to have more hydraulic hookups. Battery access is a total pain. The previous owner told us how it took him several hours to put in a new battery 2 years before he purchased it and it was difficult to just get jumper cables on it when I needed to last year.
Have had a few electrical issues. The blinking warning lights did not work as well as the turn signals.Discussion in ' Kioti ' started by kauMay 23, Log in or Sign up.

For those who own Kioti or have owned Kioti's, after using them, what are your thoughts on their reliability and longevity. May 23, 2. I have had my Kioti DK 35 for around 11 years and hours. I've been real pleased with it.
Its been a good, reliable tractor for me so. DK35vinceMay 23, May 24, 3. My CK20S is just a little over a year old and right at hours, barely broke in. I had one minor issue early on when a screw backed out of the loader joystick control.
A drop of lock tight fixed that. Also the spade connector on the horn would vibrate off but a squeeze with some pliers solved that. It is easy and straight forward to service. My dealer so far has seemed eager and able to help me out but I haven't asked much of them.
Larry in OKMay 24, Jul 18, 4. Mar 28, 5. Looking at a used Kioti Ok, I have an opportunity to get a Kioti, and the problem it has is a bad wheel bearing. The owner says he is having trouble finding repair parts, so I'm a title concerned with that. Any tips, thoughts. I will get the model number as soon as I can.
Apr 30, 6. We picked a ck20 a couple of years ago and it has been good for my wife. It has the hydro tranny with loader.Click to Post a New Message! Post: I will be doing loader work and hauling cord wood on my property.
He is going to upgrade my loader to a 66" bucket, weld a bucket hook and load the rear tires for me. I am also considering a set of forks for it. Sound like a good deal? I was impressed with the three year parts and labor warranty and also the rugged appearance of the tractor. Thoughts and comments welcome. A lot of tractor for the money and you get the three warranty, hydrostat trans. When I looked into it, the feedback I received gave me the impression that you would probably need the three year warranty on the kioti more often than you might want.
Posts: 2 Filter by User. They have the older styling,but from what I've read about them seem have a good reputation for being strong and reliable. Nearly all feedback I got was possitive. Works perfect every single time. I passed up Kubota to go with Kioti and would do it again without hesitation!!! Nice pics. Sometimes it is hard to seek out objective feedback from multiple sources. No offense intended if any was taken. I have a dk35 75hrs on it.
We also looked at the B, but were surprized how lightweight the Kubota was. The 4WD Kioti weighs in at 2, lbs vs the Kubota at 1, lbs. While you can add weight to the Kubota, why pay more for a lighter tractor? Doesn't a heavier tractor make for better field work and offset heavy objects while lifting? Of course, you are comparing a hydro to a shuttle trans. With the hydo you sacrifice horse power for the convienience of not having to shift.
From what we have seen listed on Tractor Point, it pretty much is a matter of taste. Everyone has certain preferences and some people have had good experiences with a certain make of tractor while others have not.Log in or Sign up. Aug 13, 1. If not, mods feel free to move it. I went and looked at this tractor on Tuesday when it was still listed on Craigslist. It's located in Xenia, OH. I passed on buying it for numerous reasons. The 4x4 doesn't work as he stated he told me it did, hence I drove 3 hours to see it with cash and a traileryou pull the lever but it just simply doesn't engage.
It could be a sheared pin or it may need new gears. He stated it didn't leak any fluids. Well, when I got there I first checked the coolant reservoir, which was empty. I checked the radiator and it too was low or so I thought. We started it up and it started right up, no issues. Within roughly 3 minutes of idling, the coolant gauge pegged at "H". I shut the tractor down and asked him if it had coolant. He checked it and said " huh, that's weird.
I will add some. The gauge came back down after re-starting it. How many times was this tractor overheated? No body knows It DOES leak coolant. The 4 in 1 bucket doesn't work, it "needs a solenoid" he said it doesn't split like it should.
There's wires hanging from the loader joystick too. It can still be used like a normal bucket. The front axle has been welded where the frame mount is.
There is a large "lug" that's been welded that comes off the center of the front axle and a heavy bracket that bolts it to the frame. The welds are recent too because there wasn't any rust on the weld metal. The fuel shutoff at the dash doesn't work, so you have to open the hood, and lift the side panel to shut off the engine. The cable is bound up. The front axle has 2 different wear patterned front tires, one looks much newer than the other.
The exhaust manifold has been broken off and rewelded back together. I'm just posting this so someone else doesn't waste their time and drive hours down there to find its not a field ready unit. JDSwan87Aug 13, Aug 14, 2. Thanks for the headz up. Hillsdales Most WantedAug 14, Aug 14, 3.
