    They are the same color, both good. kubota is the one I'd want.

    You need to go look at both and buy the one you like!

    Ditto.

    Not even a fair comparison for the kioti....

    The loaders spec out nearly identical.

    Total operation weight is similar at around 7k

    But.....Lets talk about them backhoes....

    ............................................L39... ..................................kioti DK40 w/hoe
    Dipper diging force...............3800#......................... ................2000#
    Bucket force........................5800#................ .........................3700#
    Reach.................................160"........ ...................................130"
    Digging depth........................10'.................. ...........................8'

    Not to mention the L39 will likely be faster, with about 50% more GPM of flow...

    Not even fair at all. A fairer comparision would be Grand L3940 with BH attachment. But then you are nearing the price of a L39, with a weaker loader and smaller hoe.

    Price wise, the kubota is going to be around 40k. Not sure what the kioti's run, but withOUT the hoe, I think they are around 25k, so add the hoe and your looking at low to mid 30's.

    I'd say about a 6-7k savings going with kioti, but if you are serious about BH work, the L39 IMO is going to be worth the extra...

    Kioti DK 35

    Default Re: kubota vs. Kioti?

    I've owned my Kioti DK for 12 years and it has been an excellent tractor,
    But like has been said. The L39 is more of a commercial duty TLB.
    Kioti does not offer anything that competes directly with an L39.

    How long ago did you get yours??

    I was just basing off what tractor house has listed. New DK40's with FEL for ~25k and in the adds quotes that say "will not be undersold"

    So.......Thats all I know.

    And my 40k guesstimate was just kubota's MSRP, so realistically on that one....maybe $35k-$38k???

    Either way, I know the DK40 TLB would be cheaper, but in this case, it is also lesser machine.

    Yep as well.

    All depends on what the OP wants. IF he wants a tractor loader with an occasional job for a hoe, save some $$ and get the DK. But if he is serious about doing a significant about of BH work, on a daily or weekly basis, the DK dont even compare.
