 Kioti or New Holland?

I checked out the DK65s 4x4 Kioti today. Very impressive tractor loaded with features. I was also looking at a TN70DA 4x4-a bit smaller tractor, lower to the ground and 20 inches lower from the top of the cab. With the optional hi-volume hydraulic pump, the NH has about the same lift capacity, about the same PTO HP, in a little tighter package. Up front, the NH is more money, but enjoys a proven reputation, an extensive dealer network, and predictable resale value. The new Kioti was delivered to the dealer with the older DK55 manual and the home office didn't know when the real manual would be available. I started the tractor and ran it for about 10 minutes; it made weird whining noises (unexplained) and leaked coolant. We couldn't figure out where it was coming from (the noise and the leak). The operating levers were not well located and the operation seemed to require more effort than the NH. The NH was smooth and the 16 speed (Kioti has 12) electro-shuttleshift was effortless (NH) The wet hydraulic clutch on the NH promised long, trouble free service, whereas the dry hydraulically assisted clutch of the Kioti was in its third upgrade, responding to previous problems. I really liked the Kioti, but bought the New Holland with an ALO/Quicke Loader--I believe it to be the wise choice.Maybe next time Kioti !!

You can not beat the TN series with any other tractor out there. Mainly because it is in a class by it self as far as frame size.
