    Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.

    Joshua, I would not sweat it, it is a Kioti with white paint, I reckon you will be able to get parts for as long as you own it.

    I'm not sweating it, James. I'm sure the Bobcat dealer will continue to support his loyal customers Now let's start a thread on how I can strip the paint off all my body panels and paint them Kioti orange.

    This does explain why, two days ago, when I went in to buy the stuff for my 50-hour service, the sales guy tried to sell me a bunch of 3ph implements at "dealer cost." Once they don't sell CUTs anymore, they won't have any use for 3ph stuff.

    I expect there will be some "good deals" to be had.

    Another source for parts is McCormick. Their X10 models are the same Daedong tractors.

    I bought my Kioti from Wallace in 2008- he left Kioti-or Kioti left him in 2010- and he went to BobCat. I wonder where that leaves him. I know he diversified to other products and has been busy according to his posts. I hope he does well, but I am still annoyed that he could not arrange to stay with Kioti. I am sure there are going to be a lot of BobCat CUT owners PO'd as well. Now they have to go with hat in hand to the nearest Kioti dealer for help.

    Really? I wouldn't assume that just because Bobcat isn't going to sell anymore, that they won't continue to support existing customers. For heck's sake, I'm still under warranty!

    Bobcat is known to handle parts. If you had a 30 year old bobcat. You could walk in and buy just about every part. If they do drop the tractors I'm not worried at all if I need parts.

    Doesn't surprise me, it's been rumored for years.

    Local dealer always seemed to have the same units on the lot. I spoke to them before buying my kubota and got the impression that compact tractors were a bit of a thorn in the side and they weren't really wanting to talk or deal. Ours sells Ferris mowers as well, which much like the CUTs, doesnt really seem like a good fit.

    Their core business are skids and excavators, commercial equipment

    I kind of got the same impression from my dealer. The sales guy seemed kind of disinterested in the CUTs, but I figured it was just him trying to play it cool on the sale as a bargaining tactic.
