My Kubota was (is) well equipped, PS, 4WD etc. Sadly I will however probably sell my B7500.
There is alot in the Kioti I was impressed with but it would have cost me $7,000 more to duplicate my new tractor in some of the other brands. No other brand had the one thing that I really thought was handy, there is a lever at the rear of the machine that raises and lowers your 3 point hitch so you can zero right in on the implement you are are putting on without climbing on and off the tractor. The loader bucket also comes right off with a simple lever (like a skid steer). Got a couple of hours seat time today and what a difference! Fast and smooth with an adjustable suspended seat...nice!
Got a new 6ft Kodiak bush hog to go with it and as a package it is a mowing monster. Definately cut down on my pasture work time.

Congrats, sounds like a nice machine. It's been a few years since I looked at a Kioti, maybe it's time to take a gander if there's still a dealer nearby. Don't see to many of them. Last time I looked they didn't offer a HST.

Not to quibble but on my JD with quick hitch and top and tilt I change rear implements all the time on very hilly ground without leaving the seat (unless they need a pto hookup). For implements that require pto hookup I can operate the 3ph and TnT while standing by the right rear tire. Easy stuff. But I did remove that stupid 3ph safety guard that always gets in the way and makes the pto connection a painful experience. Bucket drop is not quite as easy as one lever - I need to remove two hitch pins to drop it. Takes about 15 seconds.

Thanks.
I have never used the quick hitch but I think it's a rig that you attach to your 3pt so you can just back into and lift an implement. Is this right? Do the implements require an adapter to go with the quick hitch?
The deal Kioti uses is so simple I don't know why everyone doesn't do it. It is just a spring loaded lever that works the regular lift handle by the seat. They just put an extension out the back so you can work it from the rear on the ground.

Yeah, the quick hitch goes on the 3ph and allows you to dip under the implement pins, raise the 3ph to hook it up, then it has cam locks that lock it in place. Does it fit all implements? Depends on what you have, for me it fit about half of them. A 3-point chipper and a carry-all had to be slightly modified to work and I returned a set of rear pallet forks that couldn't be made to work without major mods. It's usefulness is greatly enhanced by Top-and-tilt which allows a lot of easy adjustments from the seat. Without it most implement changes would have to be made on level ground, which around here is sort of sparse.

Case did have the rear 3 pth adjustment on at least some tractors. Not sure if an option or not. But I agree for a tractor of any size that would be nice. But then the lift arms on my Kubota's are not any problem to lift them by hand when I am hooking up. On my CUT the lever is very assesible both from the seat or at the right lift arm.

There are more than one quick hitch desing out there. The lowest price ones I have seen pin onto the end of your lift arms. I think there are two designs of those, one sets your lift point back about 4 inches and than can affect your tractor balance and pto shafts. Have also seen them that attached same way but raise the lift point as the hook point was on top of the lift arm. If you have interest info on such I would post that question on quick hits options.

Hope you enjoy your tractor and mower.
