You actually cannot get it in any form other than RTR, I have tried with Tang and no luck. Also you could have bought a Lesu loader which is the same price if not more by the time your done, in kit form, not even painted or anything. but hey if anyone wants to unload their junk loader let me know! I wouldnt mind picking one up

Mine worked right out of the box and I got mine same time as you did. I made some slight changes to my radio to fit my preferences and made a video on YouTube on it. Other than the loose muffler tip, I would say it was near perfect out of box for me.
My only "fix" was lowering the pump speed and unscrewing the pressure relief valve to make the hydros smoother running.
Also minimize using the diff lock as it puts a lot of stress on the gears. Frank mentioned that to me as a tip and just passing that along now.

Ok it's time for you to make a video and post on YouTube for us to see what is going on. Show in the video step by step what you are doing. Video all the wires and how it's all connected.

Agreed on the video, remember shipping can be a rough ride. Hate to see the sledge come out. But I've been there before.

Man, so what did you have to do to get pump motor rolling? Has the hydro line that is leaking completely off? May just need to tighten it down or take it off and check washer. Gotta make sure all the fittings are snugged down and have a washer.

Thanks!! Congrats! I haven't adjusted. I checked to see if it was working properly and it was so I left it as is.

looked through manual and the forum but couldn't fine the size of the fluid tank on the 870K. How much fluid are people putting in on first arrival?

One can count the tube as the fill line, say the bottom - half way up the tube.
If one need to put the machine on the side, don't forget to temporary seal off the air intake hose next to the filler tube) A suitable self tapping screw will do

Right on, thought that was the case. Ended up taking around 40Ml to get to the bottom of the fill tube. Thanks.

Check again once you cycle thru each cylinder.

One thing I did with mine was protect the clear line from the tank. As it enters the body section it was rubbing on somewhat of a rough edge. A little file work and a rubber slip over boot, all good. Next will be bushings for the tilt pins.
