    Default 1529 vs 1533 comfort

    I tried both the 1529 and 1533 for size and comfort. The 1529 seemed to have more room on the platform and the controls felt better.
    The 1533 was cramped a little more difficult to get to the pedals. I know the 1533 will accept a cab wondering if that is why they are setup a little different. Dealer said there was a bolt sticking under the seat, didn't seem that way but I didn't take it apart to see, should have it was a Sunday no one there:-)just kidding.

    Unless you are getting a deal, have a look at the 1600 series, more roomy platform.

    I looked at the 1533, 1540, and 1635. I went with the 1635 for multiple reasons but one was it just felt better to me. I'm 6'3" tall.

    Kioti DK35

    Default Re: 1529 vs 1533 comfort

    When I was looking I drove the 1533 cab model. I found it very comfortable. Having said that I am only 6 foot 190 pounds. The only issue I had was it was winter and Massey sent it without "winter" fuel. The fuel filter geled up not once but twice. I had to leave the machine out back in the dealers field, I felt bad for the guy.

    He was also a Kioti dealer. I drove the DK35se and I personally thought the Kioti had better ergonomics for me. But I could adapt to the Massey without a blink of the eye.

    Oh, and I agree check out the 1600 series. Have fun deciding.
