I'm not familiar with the Kioti, probably a fine machine.
But as you said, Kubota has the name which in my book =
resale value. In five years that 1000.oo will come back.
Compare used prices.
Good luck

thanks for your thoughts and help.Do you have ideas on if it is better to have more weight to your tractor(Kioti is 900lbs more)and more hydraulic power? We need it for some paddock cleaning and dirt moving.

Did you test drive both machines?
Which one did you prefer?
I've read lots of owners posts on differant sites on the B series Kubota and the CK series Kioti.
From what I have read, owners of both have been real happy with their tractors.

Thanks for your input DK35vince.Sounds like you love your Kioti too. Do you know if the CK25 and CK30 have been around very long, and if they are new this year, do you think they need time to work the bugs out or are they pretty good with coming up with new models? If you were looking at those 2, they both have the same body,just different size engine, would that be a problem for a smaller HP due to the weight?

The CK 25 and 30 are pretty much new models.
They seem to be selling fairly well and I haven't read about any problems.
My DK 35 is a first year model (2001). Never had any problems with it.
As far as the weight vs HP on the CK 25, I don't know the answer to that question.
Personally I would likely go with the CK 30. But thats just my opinion..

If it makes any difference, the 2710 will be discontinued this yeat, while the CK25 and CK30 are new models. I looked hard at thge Kioti's when I purchased my last tractor and really liked them. The CK20 was the CK available, or I may have gone with the Kioti.

The B7800 is a great machine. The light weight gives it a great power/weight ratio. If you want all cast iron, go with the weight. The Kubota B's save weight with some components being cast alluminum. Makes for a lighter tractor that's easier on the lawn and the trailer.

I also recommend you test drive whatever you are considering. There are a lot of different features between manufacturers. zyou'll get comfortable with one. And don't forget the dealer. Make sure you are as comfortable with the dealer as you are with the tractor.

I think I have decided on the CK 25 w/ manual trans and frontend loader. The manual transmission was very friendly to drive and it seems like I am getting more available PTO HP than with the HST. Seems to be very heavy duty tractor for 13,900. Do you think it's a mistake to not go hydrostatic?
Thanks for your input.

I don't think its a mistake. I have a manual transmission (sycronized shuttle) on my DK 35 and I like it just fine.
Just like my DK, the CK 25 has sycronized main transmission, so you can shift through the gears without stopping, forward or reverse. They work real nice..
I also like hydrostat but I'm way to cheap to pay extra $$ for it he,he !!

I personally think you are making a mistake by not getting hst, unless it's the amount of dollars extra that keeps you from buying at all. People told me to get hst, I had always had mowers with gears so could never see what the big deal was, having never tried it. I have owned 3 Kubotas over the past year and a half and now have a B7800 and BX1500. Traded BX2200 for B7800. All have been hst. After using hst, especially for loader work, it's the only way to go. Trying one on the lot usually does not reflect several hours of actual work and even at that you have to try it with both ways doing the same amount of work. Again to me there is no comparison of gear to hst especially with loader. Straight line mowing may not be as big a deal.
