If what you disliked about the appearance of the rear end (usually makes me think of something else) is a too-narrow track, some rears can be reversed to widen it.
The Kioti line offers more features for less money. That might be my next tractor so I've been following owner experiences. Seems that most work as well as the others you're looking at, but the odd one gets problems not easily diagnosed and fixed. So make sure the contract with the dealer protects you, like a loaner if they can't fix with a service call or need it in the shop for a week.
