I purchased from a local dealer after searching for months. I looked at all the different brands, and shopped price. Then, I made a list of all the features that were available and marked each brand accordingly. Kioti won.
Great warranty, very sturdy piece of equipment that has never been lacking in power. I have a front end loader on it, and have even used a grapple bucket designed for skid steers and dug large trees out of the ground. Runs a large disc mower and round hay baler, no issues.
The ONLY complaint I have is that the hydraulic pump is louder than I would like. I asked the dealer and he said they were all loud, I checked a couple of other tractors, and yes, they were loud.
The dealer got a low rating because I told him at least 5 times now to order the front grill guard for the tractor and he still hasn't done it. It should have come standard with a grill guard, but hey, nothing is perfect.
If you are on the fence about this tractor, I can tell you that the tractor is a great value for the features and warranty. I have had no issues with this machine as of yet, but I have followed all of the manufacturer instructions for service and maintenance.
