    Anyone got one? How are they compared to Kubota?

    I have looked at them in the past and they are very good machines- for a while they had issues with the loader frame on the CK25/30 but that has been resolved. In hindsight I wish I had gotten the CK20 instead of my GC as the the 20 is much more capable even with less HP.

    they are a S. Korean with headquarters in NC.

    I have communicated with lots of owners on another website and most everyone is very happy with their machines.

    The same company that builds the Kioti line builds tractors for Bobcat. Bobcat specs a nicer stock seat and a different loader. I'm sure that there are other things as well. Kioti has a three point adjustment feature at the rear of the tractor to aid in hooking up attachments that looks pretty handy.

    I've been running a New Holland for the last few years, but since LS is now building the models that I'm interested in for NH I'll be looking at Kioti and Bobcat for my next purchase.

    I had a CK30. Went thru the repairs with the loader. The company stood by their machine. I now have a DK50 TLB. Its a great machine and I plan to stick with the Kioti brand.
