National Farm Machinery Show: KIOTI snapshot


From its Mechron utility vehicles to a broad line of tractors and a variety of new implements, KIOTI had a lot on display at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville.

Perhaps the best place to start is with something that we couldn’t actually see but that is readily apparent as a positive move for the company: a six-year unlimited-hour powertrain warranty, a step up from the warranty that included a two-year bumper-to-bumper and a four-year powertrain warranty. This should provide an extra layer of comfort for anyone considering adding KIOTI products to their farm.

From a product standpoint, the company in recent months has rolled out a new trio of larger tractors — hitting 93 hp, 103 hp, and 110 hp — which were welcome additions to KIOTI’s already solid catalog. Outfitted with a synchronized power shuttle transmission, the new models provide smooth shuttle operation and allow the operator to perform loader work without pressing the clutch pedal. In addition, the new models offer a lift capacity of more than 8,000-pounds, PTO horsepowers from 79.1 to 92.2 and interchangeable PTO shafts delivering 540 and 1,000 rpm.

KIOTI is adding value to its tractor line, too, by partnering with Woods Equipment to expand the implement offerings available to customers. KIOTI had long had only a partial line of implements, such as post-hole diggers, stump grinders, and mowers. However, the deal with Woods gives KIOTI a total of 19 items in its line, to include rotary cutters up to 20 feet, rear blades and scrapers, gear-driven tillers, disc harrows, and snow blowers.

Capping off the booth was the new cab that is available on two of KIOTI’s smaller tractors (the CK3510SE HC and the CK4010SE HC), as well as a look at the popular wide-bed 22-hp Mechron utility vehicle, a dependable and rugged standby for the company.

And if you’re ever having trouble deciding which tractor or utility vehicle is right for you, KIOTI has a handy product filter here.
