I own 10 acres of sloping rough property and I needed a tractor that could do the work. After reviewing the features and price and features of the blue, green, and other orange tractors, I couldn't beat the Kioti. It was thousands cheaper, with no sacrifice in quality.
The tractor has stood up to my heavy use and even abuse occasionally. I have a Kioti front end loader, and I think that needs improvement. The bucket cylinders are weak, high maintenance, and the leverage ratio on the tilt could stand improving. There was an initial problem with the front axle ring and pinion, but the dealer worked with me to get me the parts under warranty. All in all, I am thoroughly pleased with this tractor and highly recommend it to anyone.
