Bought tractor new in 2008. Dealer was Bobcat dealer as well as Kioti. Dealer within one year was Bobcat only and did not want to support Kioti separately. Seemed odd because one of their selling points was Bobcat was built by Kioti(?!).
Tractor has performed admirably when needed---5 ft brush hogging in some very nasty conditions. Clutch had to be replaced at 199 hrs; suspect possible overuse or abuse during nephews use. Starter went out at 150 hrs. No warranty support for the starter even though it was only 1 day beyond 2 years after purchase. Tractor is used for garden tilling and some yard maintenance as well a keeping surrounding 25 acres mowing.
