    Default New Tractor Question

    Currently on a Kioti CK27. Looking to upsize. I am considering the DK series. My implements are all 60 inch (flail mower, box blade etc.

    The DK series Kioti are designed to handle I believe 72 inch implements. Any problem running a 60 inch mower on the larger tractor? Both tractors are Cat 1. I have been told I "should" buy larger mower as the 60 inch will be "inside the footprint"of the DK and therefore tires will compress grass resulting in a poor cut?

    Any thoughts on this?

    You won't have any problems running smaller attachments...but you won't be taking advantage of the increased PTO power.
    You'll likely upgrade your attachments as time goes by...

    You are always compressing the grass with the tires before you mow it. But without covering your tracks, you are compressing it a second time.

    A work around for that is you can always use your sway links and offset the flail to the inside. That way, you cover that track.
