One Never Forgets One's First!
by Leon Korotko
Model year: 2007Date Purchased: 2014-08-10Number of Hours: 275
"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 AcresLocation: USA KYI also considered buying: Kioti DK50SE HST REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I too have a DK45 overall excellent tractor has the important amenities that are superior to others I looked at. However I too have had electrical issues. The paint is coming off in areas un-weathered. The PTO switch is regularly hit while exiting.
These I recently noticed have been addressed while getting parts for mine at dealer wow they look terrific. Thinking about trading in. I was considering a used backhoe for mine. Any suggestions? Is it worth the money? Will it perform?

KIOTI On The Rocks!
by jana e dengler
Model year: 2010Date Purchased: 2012-04-10Number of Hours: 185
"When we decided to start farming in North Worcester Co. Mass, so we could be near my spouses family, I was not really sure what I was getting into, we bought a 1760 farm with 110 acres that had not been farmed since the 1800's. We are in the process of restoring the agriculture to the land in hopes to make a couple of $$ to add to retirement money.
Took us 2 years to find a farm that fit the business plan. We looked at all the tractors available in the area and bought the KIOTI. It has been a great performer as we have a lot of woodbridge/paxton soils here!"
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Tough, balanced, good on rocks/boulders, handles many diverse implements, sustainable power in the lower ranges.Cons: Had an issue with the hydraulic controller @ 95 hours was recplaced under warranty; needs a bigger bucket.Type of User: Commercial FarmerLocation: USA MAI also considered buying: DR Power CPR3PTR Wood Chipper, Woods BH70X REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
My Orange Tractor (adverstisement)
by David Hagler
Model year: 2012Date Purchased: 2012-06-02Number of Hours: 104
"I was in the market for a tractor and looked at everything and was going to purchase a Kubota. I had the price I was okay with and attachments I wanted and we needed an extra trailer just for the unit. I saw some Orange tractors in San Marcos just north of us and thought I would keep the other Kubota dealer honest.
I arrived at the dealership and after I got out of my truck I notice a big difference in these Orange tractors. I wasn't at another Kubota dealer at all, I was at the Kioti dealership. I was already there so I decided to take a look, then a big country boy greeted me and said, "Hi, my name is Brian, welcome to ACM Tractor." We talked a bit and he started his presentation. I was impressed with Brian's knowledge of his product and really liked what I saw. After he told me the story of the company's history and involvement in manufacturing diesel engines, I was at ease with the new name. The ergonomics on the Kioti are much better than the Kubota. Everything is right at you finger tips and ready for use. So I decided to go inside and talk numbers and after a couple of hours and a lot of fun I managed to save a bundle and get a tractor with front end loader, backhoe, grapple, forks, shredder and box blade.
After 100 plus hours on this workhorse and can say honestly that I made the right decision. By the way if your are in Texas and even a couple hundred miles from San Marcos it would be worth you while to visit AMC Tractors! Brian's cell is 512-718-3109, you can also talk to Allen Berry the owner at 512-392-2639. "

Kioti DK 45SE HST Exceeds Expectations
by Bryant M. Watson
Model year: 2012Date Purchased: 2012-08-20Number of Hours: 40
"Traded up from a Kioti CK 35 HST, what a difference!! The CK 30 was always short on power, no need to worry about that with the DK 45SE HST, plenty of power in all ranges.
The ease of changing implements is fantastic, especially the removal of the front bucket for the use of additional equipment. Will be equipping the DK with a 72" snowblower this winter, and I expect to cut my snow clearing time in half. You can look for around 12 to 14 hours on a tank of fuel. I recommend this tractor to anyone looking for a medium horsepower tractor. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: I like everything about it, especially the opertaion of the 3-point hitch from the rear of the tractor, great for those moments you need to make adjustments when changing implements.Cons: I haven't found any yet!Type of User: Commercial FarmerLocation: USA VTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I had never heard of a Kioti since I had been out of tractor ownership for several years. I was looking at a Kubota and had really settled, but I was wanting to keep the dealer honest and compare prices with another Kubota dealer. I had seen some orange tractors up north from my place and I drove there and when I got there I realized I was at the Kioti dealership.
I looked them over outside and liked what I saw and then came the salesman to greet me. He was a big country boy that had a great personality and a knowledge of his product. I am a retired car dealer and I was one of the first 100 dealers to handle KIA in north America and I liked the Korean experience with that so I felt trust in the manufacturer.
We went inside and Brian (salesman) put his great pitch on me and after I got through with him I saved a considerable amount of money and I think I got the best tractor. I purchased the backhoe, grapple, brush hog, box blade and forks. I have worked the fire out of this tractor and I simply love it!
By the way, Brian works at a small dealership in San Marcos, Texas called ACM. The attention I received and the no pressure selling and service was and is great! I highly recommend this dealership!"

DK45 SE Cab
by kioti mike
Model year: 2011Date Purchased: 2011-06-10Number of Hours: 68
"I've had this tractor since June and have had no real issues with it. I upgraded from a CK30 and have loved every minute of it. I've used the tractor for bush hogging, snow blowing, box scrapping, moving brush with grapple and leveling ground and it's worked A1."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Cab with air and heat. All controls are easy to get at; lots of power, able to control 3pt hitch from back of tractor.Cons: I wish that they would put in a seat with arm rest and come with another set of remotes.Type of User: Homeowner 50-100 AcresLocation: CND OTI also considered buying: Kubota L4240 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Orange, but not a Kubota
Model year: 2007Date Purchased: 2007-03-01Number of Hours: 310
"I like my Kioti. Its just that in the past owning Kubotas, it fails in comparison to them. It performs well and does have the power. The loader that came with it is way undersized for the size of this model.
Certain features are annoying, like the control arm for loader. In the way of your hip on the side. The rear hydro switch is also in a bad spot, and easy to hit when exiting the tractor. Next time you try to start, if its engaged, it wont start until disengaged. Oil filler cap is just plain dumb with a piece of rod iron in your way to fill. Battery compartment fell threw a weak, spot welded grill the first year I owned it. It doesnt feel like 45 hp to me either. Other tractors that were 35 or 40 seem to have more power. I can stall this one just digging into dirt with loader. HST on my Kubota was instant, where this one has an annoying delay, especially when cold. Paint is rusting in non working places after 2 years. Like I said, runs and performs pretty well, just not as well as I would like. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Rear controls for 3 pt hitch. Seat. Turn radius. Large tires. Loader weight limit is great. Cons: Several.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA VTI also considered buying: Kubota L4300DT REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
