One Never Forgets One's First! Posted by Leon Korotko on 08/10/2014

My first tractor was the Kioti DK45SE HST.

We chose it for the following reasons:
- Good price compared to other similar makes.
- Daedong's industrial history (length and experience in the field of tractors).
- Area of use; 40 acres, small haying operation (i.e. square baling), other around the farm activities.
- Transmission, (HST), primarily for when the missus drove the tractor.

Despite the few cons, it was an outstanding tractor and as we look to "reboot" our operation, I am looking at Kioti as the primary, (but not only), manufacturer for our next tractor..

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Simple to use, work on, very well constructed, great price, very user friendly design, (especially the 3 point hitch area). Did what was expected/required of it with no problem (other than the air screen issue mentioned below). Cons: At the time, no nearby dealer (now rectified), air screen would constantly block up with dust/hay & would need to be cleaned/blown out periodically to prevent overheating. Though am not sure if this was a Kioti design issue or a problem faced by most tractors being used in similar circumstances (and this is the only reason why I gave the 4 star ratings. If not a DK45SE HST specific issue then I would give a 5 star rating across the board). Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: United States Kentucky I also considered buying: Kioti DK50SE HST
