    Default 2008 Kioti DK45SE HST vs. 2011 DK45SE HST?

    May have an opportunity to purchase a new 2008 DK45 HST and wanted to get some opinion on it from current owners as well as any differences you see between the 2008 and current model years? Any issues that have come up with the 2008?
    Thanks in advance.

    I am pretty sure they are the same except for the warrantee... I don't think the SE has undergone any big changes.

    The 2008 is out of warranty and the 2011 is not. That's the only diff.

    Only if the 2008 is used. If new from a dealer's old stock it has the full 4 yr warranty.

    Price should be way different! '08 should be heavily discounted. Your in service date will actually determine the year of the tractor, but the year of manufacture will be what relates to particular parts that since '08 may have changed or been modified, etc.
    Emissions system changes may have occurred since then too.
    Where are you looking to buy? What is being offered for each tractor as far as price?

    Emission system changes is what led to the change from DK to DKse in 2007. I doubt there were changes after 2007.

    2008 should be much lower dealer cost though as there have been a number of price hikes in the past several years.

    The lowest 2011 I have been quoted was $22,100 OTD with filled tires and loader, cash price of course. The 2008 is $19,900 OTD same set-up, so what do you think.

    Take the 2008. It is the same tractor as there have been only trivial changes since the DKse line was introduced. Double check with the dealer but I am almost certain the warranty would be the same for both.

    Then, get yourself a nice grapple and used bush hog or other implements with the $2200 savings and you will be way ahead.

    Once you have the tractor you will instantly be infected with the "need more implements" bug. With the money you save you can get nicer or more implements = Score!
