    Default ?Carver no longer a Kioti dealer

    Am I correct in recalling that Carver in NC used to be a pretty big Kioti dealer as well as kubota? Now they seem to have nothing by Kioti but have added Antonia Carrera articulated tractors. Is there a rule against carrying both orange brands?

    Neat looking tractor.
    Maybe Kioti told them they could not carry 2 Orange brands.
    So they made a choice.

    Your heading says no longer Kioti, but post says no longer Kubota.

    Carver says he still has the Kioti dealership. I think he could still quote a price or get parts.

    Interesting because they no longer advertize Kioti on their site.

    Sorry Ed, I misread. I thought you wrote he carries nothing but Kioti when you actually wrote nothing BY Kioti. I'll read twice from now on! hahaha

    Ed, why don't you just give Carver Equipment a call on the phone and ask

    They dropped Kioti sometime late last year. I noticed they had dropped the "kioti" from their list of mfgs and gave them a call to see if they had a good deal on any leftover Kioti's. They said they did not as they sent the rest of their inventory back to Kioti.

    Does not surprise me any. When I was gathering quotes they were one of the highest around. There Kioti prices were higher than the kubota's. Kind of hard to sell a higher price Kioti along side a comparable Kubota.
