Those attending the 2020 National Farm Machinery Show had the opportunity to be the very first to catch a glimpse of the new tractor lineup by KIOTI in a public debut. These included two new series — the CS20 series and the CX series — and a new edition to the CK 10SE series.
“Our new CS20 series features an entirely new front-end loader design with quick attachments and a brand new 54- to 60-inch mower deck, which will be a drive-over. These are new things for us,” said Ron Morgan, a KIOTI Territory Manager.
Featuring models in both 22 and 25 horsepower, the CS20 series also include a new backhoe offering an integrated thumb mount. These new tractors also feature tilt steering and standard cruise control. This expands on the CS series, KIOTI’s line of subcompacts, which are easy to operate but with a good bit of oomph behind them, making it perfect for a wide variety of day-to-day tasks.
An addition to the CK 10SE series is the CK 2610SE. This series are durable high-performance compact tractors equipped for a variety of tasks. The 2610SE features a hydrostatic transmission and has a 26 horsepower engine. New for KIOTI, it comes with a factory installed heated and air-conditioned cab.
Another highlight of the show was the brand-new CX series. This is a new generation that will be replacing the CK 10 series of compact tractors. This features side-by-side forward and reverse petals, replacing the old toe-to-heel design. As with the CS20, the CX will also have tilt steering. The CX tractors have a seven pin connector and extendable three-point hitch links. Another highlight is that KIOTI will also be offering 14 tire options for all three of their new offerings.
KIOTI has 450 dealerships in North America who will be ready to service and retail parts for the new machines and implements. Additionally, the company offers a six-year unlimited Powertrain warranty. The CS20 series, the CX series, and the CK 2610SE will be launching later this spring.
