    Default Trading up just a little, what do you think?

    I own a 2007 CK30HST w/fel and the old backhoe KB2375. It has 500 hours on it. I bought it in 08' with 100 hours on it for $17500.
    I have had SO many issues w/ the KB2375 BH. I was getting tired of the non stop repairs.
    When I was at my dealer the other getting more parts for it. The owner came up to me asking how things were, I told him, be careful what you ask, you might not like the answer, lol.
    I told him Im tired of fixing this piece of crap, he knows all the issues I have had.

    He said come into my office. He told me he has a 2012 CK35HST w/fel quick attach bucket and the new HD BH. he explained that someone bought it used it for about a week, put 35 hours on it and realized it was not big enough for his use and traded back in. The tractor was never registered w/ Kioti, so it is still considered as new. I will get the rebates, Full warranty as first owner and free 50 hour service.

    When I looked at the changes from my 07' CK30HST to the 12' CK35KHST I found that EVERYTHING that has broken on my 07' has been redesigned on the 12'
    AS far as the OLD BH verses the NEW BH, No comparison, total new design, stronger, bigger, better design.

    I think he has done me well here is the breakdown.
    $25000.00 2012 CK35HST w/ KL130 fel w/ quick attach bucket, KB2475BH
    $16500.00 Trade in allowance for my 07' CK30HST FEL and BH ( I paid $17500. for it)
    $8500.00 Difference. This is the "out the door price"

    I think for $8500 Im getting a good deal, no more issues, slightly larger tractor, better bigger FEL and BH w/ 4 year warranty
    oh yea I forgot It has the grill guard on it

    What do you guys think?

    Forks are not included, but at least I will now have the option to buy later if i ever find the need fro them
    I dont know what big foot pads are, so if its not standard im guessing no

    I'd do it for $8,500, especially with the problems you've had. Not a bad trade... used it for 4 years and you get back most of your money.

    I'm thinking, it's been a couple of hours, have you signed the papers yet

    That price is really close to my CK30HST, very similar equipment. IF he'll throw in loaded tires(if you want/need), pickup and delivery and a Kioti Cap, I'd pull the trigger.

    I dont need loaded tires. he is doing pickup/delv. The dealer is only about 5 miles from my house. I know I can get a discount, maybe cost on a roof kit.
    They are prepping and doing the 50 hour service today and sign papers and delv Monday

    When I got my Kioti, the dealer threw in two caps. Hold out for the second cap and sign the deal!
