    Hi Fugowwe Great to see. The 30 looks naked without that FEL on it. When I got my Daedong (Kioti) it came with cream wheel rims which I like a lot. I wonder why they paint them orange now. Keep us informed how it is going...
    Your missus will love it.

    After I signed the papers for mine, the dealer looked at me and said, 'you're gonna love this tractor..'. He was right. Good luck with it, and 'Welcome to the Pack'!

    Hey all,

    So the tractor is finaly home and I have spun it around a bit and it rules. I have to say I am glad I went with the CK30 and I could probably have gone bigger as I have already found stuff to lift that it is a bit light for! In the words of Tim the tool man "MORE POWER!!!" So far I have used it mostly just for moving stuff. . . pallet forks rule! Got a bitchin 72" rear blade I am dieing to try but have must do projects gumming things up. My neighbors have toy envy big time and even our dog Scooter is digging the tractor!!!

    Later,
    Fugowwee

    Congratulations on your choice. The tyres certainly appear a lot wider than the ag ones on mine. They would be much better in soft soil as my fronts tend to break through the top quite easily. Even thought of putting duals on but then I might break axles.

    They are the general purpose ones and yeah they look to be almost twice the width of the ag tires but still have a bite.

    I know a Kioti mechanic / technicain, and although he is very "UP" on Kioti tractors. He says that the CK20 is "not my favorite tractor" when I pushed him a bit at a fair last year about hard starting issues I had heard about on just that model. I have another friend that has a CK20, and has used it a lot for snow, backhoe work. building roads in his woods, etc. and he loves his. They are tough tractors for sure, and weigh quite a bit more than the Kubots the same size. I have a kubota B2620, but I have to admit that I liked the Kioti CK30 I drove a while ago very much.

    Yeah I have been running the 30 around a bit more the past couple days and there is a learning curve but it works great! I am amazed at what it lifts and the difference in the 3 ranges of the hydrostat. It really does do the work and a couple of things I have done I doubt the CK20 would have done. So glad I got it!
