    Well, admittedly, I never asked if he personally owned a Kioti tractor but since he puts more time in prepping and fixing Kioti tractors (as well as VERY big boy toys) in a month than any (most?) of us will in a lifetime, I'm going to respect his opinion. I can tell you that the guy who actually SOLD me the tractor actually owns one though...

    Your point is well taken about the mech working on much bigger stuff. I really believe that most any brand name, including and maybe especially TSC products, if they say they meet certain specs, are as good $ to $ as most other highly advertised and often overpriced, (pays for the adds, no?!) big name brands. Your opinion may vary.

    Thanks all! You gave me more useful info than the owners manual did! I wish they would just say a fluid "meeting this spec" and leave it at that. Oh well, the Korean to English translation is entertaining if nothing else.

    Merry Christmas!
