Best Bang for the Buck Posted by Egbert on 08/29/2013

Having only recently retired and finding myself with 110 acres to manage, this is my first tractor purchase. I looked at the "other" orange, the green and the blue, before making my decision.

I found the Kioti offered more features and better performance for less $$$. The quality of the unit is first rate and I've been quite pleased so far.

It took little time to realize the FEL lift capacity exceeded the rear-end weight :) In order to make full use of your loader bucket or grapple, it will be necessary to add weight. I don't care for the idea of loading tires or the drivetrain wear from wheel weights, so something like a Heavy Hitch is in my future.

My complaints are minor - there is no interior storage space, filling the fuel through the hood is a pain and the throttle lever almost requires a winch to move.

I can't say enough good things about my dealer, S&H, in Joplin, Mo.
