This was my first new tractor and so far I'm quite impressed. I use my IH3588 for the heavy jobs and use the Kioti for everything else such as planting, haying, and spraying. The only thing I have changed so far is the small spring for the parking brake handle (it is too weak and fails to return to full upright position after a while giving a false warning of handbrake being on.
The only other minor inconvenience is that having operated older tractors, I had to get used to operating a tractor that needed to run at or near optimal RPM to develop any useful power. Once you drop below 1800 rpm be ready to change gears.
