    Default New DK55

    I just pulled the trigger on a new DK55 with loader. Chip from ARTRAC in Arkansas will be delivering it on Monday. I am trading my 55 HP Chinese tractor he sold me some years ago.

    Is there anything I should check on the new tractor or any known issues?

    I shopped several brands to include JD, NH, Mahindra, LS, and kubota. The Kioti seemed to be the best quality for the money. The highest priced 55 HP tractor was the Kubota. it was $1,000 more than the JD. Surprisingly the NH was $400 less than the Mahindra.

    I guess I'll have to change the picture on my profile!

    The tractor was delivered today and looks and runs great. I bought it from Chip at ARTRAC in Clarksville Arkansas.
