 Kioti Problems - comparisons to JD, Kubota, NH

Looking for any problems with Kioti, but haven't found any real issues on this forum. Are they that good? I'm thinking of buying a DK35 with loader, box blade, shredder and 18' trailer at a local dealer for $18,595. Is this a good deal? How would this compare to similar JD, NH, or Kubota?
Thanks, MJS

MJS,
Yes Kioti is that good.The price you were quoted looks OK too !
The only problem I have read about with Kioti owners is a few hydraulic cylinder leaks on the loaders.
I have around 100 hours on my DK 35 now(purchased around April of this year)and I am very happy with it !!

I really like Kioti's too. In all fairness though, one thing to remember is that there are a lot more of the blue and green machines out there, so less trouble post on Kioti troubles would be normal. I do believe that Kioti is at least as good as the other brands and quite a bit cheaper. I like that Smile

To put it in perspective, on Tractorpoint there are over 40,000 posts on Compact Tractors. Of that total there are less than 100 about Kioti. So they have 0.2% of the Tractor Discussion arena!

I would have to assume the low numbers correlate to very few of them being sold and a very small dealer network.

Some of the Kioti models are hard to distinguish from the Kubota Grand L tractors, which I think look great.

 Kioti Problems - comparisons to JD, Kubota, NH

I have an older (mid 80's) LB 2204 22 hp 4wd with a KL122 loader. The hour meter is up thier and the tractor has worked. I have no complaints. The few parts I have had to buy were easy to get(a phone call) and delivered within 3-5 days. If I ever need another tractor, I would buy a Kioti again! but for now this one still starts, runs and works very well.

Thanks for the feedback. It is good to hear about the lack of any catastrophic problems or dealer issues, coupled with owners that would buy again. That's ususally a good sign, even with a relatively new company/brand in this market.

We just took on the Branson line which is built in South Korea as well. The quality is excellent, and I would assume the same for the late model Kioti's. Definately worth a look if you have a good dealer nearby.

I don't know where you live MJS, but if you are anywhere near NY, the Empire Farm Days would be the place to go to compare. There is also a show at the state fairgrounds and perhaps you have one in your state as well. I wish I had gone to one BEFORE I purchased my first new tractor, it gives you a real-time perspective of what is out there and for how much. It would be great to take a claim from one salesman and present it to another selling a different brand. Sort of keeps them honest and cuts the BS. There are brands present I never hear discussed on the forum as well. Again, just my 2 cents.

 Kioti Problems - comparisons to JD, Kubota, NH

As we had a post that Kioti was #3 this year in terms of sales ahead of NH and we have had very few negative posts, none that I recall besides loaders, which are made here.
I talked with the largest dealer in AL and he states that they sold 40 DK's per year and have had no waranty claims at all.
Kioti has been around for 50 years and are all Kioti components. Even Deer is not making the smaller engines. Many of the other Korean manufactures are actually using Kioti engines. I don't know about Branson.
By the way they have been at it longer than Kubota.
