Not specifically, but there are ones that fit. Search around here and you値l find some info. I think it痴 a pretty easy install or your tractor.

Kioti has a 400W Block Heater that will fit your tractor. It is available at your local dealer as part number AAA247. It usually sells for about $68.
We usually quote about 2 hours of labor to install this.

Can you provide some more info on this part. My dealer didn't have it, and my searches suggest that this is not an actual Kioti part.

What I did for mine, was just bought a ZeroStart (Philips & Temro) heater with a 3/4" NPT, which you can usually find for about $20-$30(CAD). Depending on your specific model you may actually have a spot that you can thread it in directly, but more that likely, it will need to be installed in the frost plug hole (freeze plug, core plug, whatever your terminology happens to be). If you need to install it in the freeze plugs, you will also need a sleeve. I searched up several on the internet, which also fit Kubotas, and other brands of tractors, but the shipping was usually more expensive than the sleeve. So I went to my local dealer, and their sleeve was just a modified 3/4" pipe coupling - it was just turned on a lathe on one end to fit the frost plug hole. Simple enough, and they only wanted $12 for it. However, it was just cast iron, and being in Canada, i was concerned about this thing rusting and failing. I just happen to have my own metal lather, so I bought a Stainless Steel 3/4" coupling, and turned it myself. I put a 3-degree included taper on it (1.5-degrees/side) so that it would wedge into the frost plug hole, and I used Permatex High Temp Sleeve Retainer (#64000) to bond it in there. The purpose-made sleeves I saw online, also had tapers on them, but were more aggressive - I'm assuming to allow for more open tolerances during manufacturing - and they were usually carburized or treated with some other corrosion protection.

I will warn you, if you go on a hunt to buy the parts yourself, the prices of block heaters are all over the map. Almost all of them are manufactured by Phillips & Temro. Oddly enough, they used to be manufactured at their plant in Winnipeg, and after they moved the operation to China, the prices went up. Even the pre-installed block heaters on my Mercedes have all said Made in Canada on them.

I don't have one in front of me, but this block heater fits every Kioti tractor except for the CS and PX series. You are correct, Kioti does not make this, however I do not remember what brand it is.

Wholeproducts apparently is the package name, but I assume it's manufactured by P&T. It might only be distributed to Kioti dealers in the US. I think the block heater my dealer was selling was Bobcat branded. They wanted $85 for it plus the sleeve. I said no thanks.

Does the one you're talking about come with the sleeve also? Because $68 for the heater + sleeve + adhesive is a pretty reasonable price.

I was $30 for the heater, $6 for the sleeve (SS coupling), and $10 for the Permatex: $46CAD total. I had to modify the sleeve myself though. From the dealer I would have been $85 for the heater, $12 for the sleeve, and $10 for the Permatex: $107CAD total, and an inferior solution.

It looks like the Kioti option does come with the sleeve. (see attached pic).

That逞エ a decent kit for $68. Does it come with the sleeve retainer? That has the Stainless Steel version block heater also which are also suitable as an engine oil or hydro oil heater. I遏・ not sure if they豎*e better than the bronze ones, but they usually retail for a fair bit more.

On another note P&T makes a weather proof flip lid receptacle for these also, that plugs directly into the heater, ie replaced the existing power cable.

If some member's dealers don't have these, are you able to send these? Should a member PM you or is their a number to call? Thank you for your help to all.
