I would like to hear more opinions on Kioti tractors. I am considering a 26 or 30 hp with loader. Kioti is my first choice right now based substantially on price. Any owners out there?

See my post further on down. Here in Canada I've found price not to be that different. I've also found a little stuff on this address http://www.farmshow.net/index.shtml. http://www.kioti.com/a4.htm. Hope this helps. Ron

Thanks. I read the post and threads but was hoping to hear from more users. one concern I have with Kioti is what happens 5 years from now when I need some parts? Will they still be around?

Bill, The question you raise is legitimate and worthy of consideration. Kioti has been sold in the US since 1993 and are manufactured by Daedong of S. Korea. When I was considering the brand, once I got comfortable that it was mechanically solid and reliable, this issue came up with me personally as I intend to keep my tractor around a while. Here's how I got comfortable with the issue:The tractor is primarily distributed by Lely in the USA. Lely has been around and if they aren't selling the machine, I am comfortable the somebody else will pick them up. Alot of Kiotis have been sold over the past six years. I got comfortable that at least parts would remain in supply by checking out Daedong, the tractor manufacturer. They formed right after WWII and have always been in the agricultural business. They started selling tractors out right during the 1960's. This is a good track record, with the USA being an expansion. While nobody can predict the future (who would have ever thought Ford would dump the tractor business and you should have seen all of the bad mouthing Kubota got when they got into the USA market - but they have done very well), this pretty well satisified me that they would be around a while.Lee

Bill and allI was at a local farm show and there were three different dealers w/ Kioti's.I just purchased an almost new Kubota B1700 from an individual for an excellent price. Now I am considering turning right around and selling the Kubota for a profit and buying a Kioti.

Bill, I have a Kioti LK3054 with a loader and am very pleased with it so far. I have only had it for two seasons & have had no problems.I know of three others that have had good use of Kioti machines for at least 4 years.

Thanks for you help guys. I wanted to add that I am now also considering the Kubota L2500. Both tractors are similarly priced with similar features. One difference though. The Kubota dealer will come out free for warranty work. The Kioti dealer has to charge me $1.50/mile to pick it up unless I buy a trailer and bring it in.

Actually I did not put down my third choice, the Kioti LK3054 you just described. I have almost decided that if I go with Kioti I would up it to the 30 hp. I did not mention it because it did not seem a fair comparison. For 1300 dollars the extra hp, live pto, shuttle, etc. seem worth it. By the way, the haggle prices I've gotten so far are (includes loader) $12,800 - Kioti LK2554, $14,100 - Kioti LK3054, and $13,050 - Kubota L2500DT. There are lots more Kubota dealers I could haggle with, too, but will wait till I'm closer. I only know of the one dealer for Kioti, but will start checking around.Thanks for your help.
