Model year: 2009 Date Purchased: 2009-09-30 Number of Hours: 350

"I bought my Kioti in the fall of 2009. At 100 hours, the hydraulic pump failed and at 160 hours the front diff broke. Both were covered by warranty. At 200 hours, the transmission cooler split open. That was $187 out of pocket. The alternator failed at 210 hours. That was $300 and happened once again at 300 hours. Now the hydraulic pump has failed again and took out the fuel cam with it at 350 hours. I am now looking at an estimated repair of close to $1,500. This will make a total of nearly $2300 out of my pocket since 2012. This tractor is garage kept and well maintained. I would not recommend a Kioti product. I am hoping for some type of support from Kioti since the warranty has expired!"

"I have bigger tractors than the CK20 but this thing has done everything I've asked of it, and with zero problems! I consider it a real Power Brute, in spite of it's size."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Very versatile, extremely reliable, and the ergonomics are well-thought out Cons: I wish that Kioti had used steel grease zerks (in an SAE configuration instead of an obscure British thread) instead of brass, a mid-range in the transmission would be useful as it would a separate hydraulic pump for the steering Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: USA CO I also considered buying:

"The dealer called to check on the shipment. Kioti said they hadn't shipped it yet. It's been 1 1/2 weeks. I called the Kioti parts department and the person was busy and said they would call me back. "

"In the last 2 months, the fuel injector pump went ($951) and the cam shaft went ($1800). Kioti says sorry but the warranty is up. I've heard that once the warranty is up everyone has problems. The dealer told me they have had very few fuel injector problems and now he says he has had the cam shaft problem only once before, out of a thousand tractors he has sold."

"After 8 years of use, no issues, and no complaints, this is one tough little tractor. Regular service is all I’ve had to do in 8 years of ownership. I regularly mow 2 acres of grass, and snow blow 500ft plus of driveway. This was my first Kioti, but not the last, I will buy another Kioti for sure. "

"Bought my new Kioti tractor last august. It is a great tractor for its size with plenty of power and reliability. Only mechanical issue I had so far was a leaky o-ring on the hydraulics which was fixed immediately under warranty. Pushed all kinds of snow last winter with the bucket with no problems. Bought a new Woods equipment Brushbull rotary cutter this summer which has worked great. Now looking for a tiller."

"My 8N died and I decided it was time to upgrade. In my budget, the Kioti seemed like the most tractor for the money. While the dealer was the farthest away from those under consideration (LS, Deere, New Holland), I really liked him. My first task for the tractor was back filling a pool and grading for turf. It moved 34 yards of dirt and graded like a champ...and then I realized that there was a serious leak in the transmission. So after 7 hours of use....it was dead lined. The dealer promised to make it right...and he did. He hauled it off, split it, isolated the leak to an o-ring, repaired it, and cleaned it up good as new. I admit that my confidence in Kioti is degraded. My profession is in engineering (development, testing, production, and quality). Production and QC controls should have prevented a situation like mine. That issue aside, it's a great little tractor. Yeah...it could use a medium range in the tranny and the diff lock pedal sucks, but I actually prefer the controls and operation to the other tractors that I've used (Ford, Kubota, and Cub Cadet/Yanmar)."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Big tractor in a little package. Cons: Unknown reliability. Diff lock pedal is too small to use (too close to the 2WD/4WD selector). Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: USA IN I also considered buying: LS Tractor J2020 H, Mahindra Max 25 HST

Model year: 2008 Date Purchased: 2008-10-25 Number of Hours: 104.4

"I have owned my Kioti CK20 HST for a little over five years and just turned over 100 hours. We use our tractor for general yard, landscaping, and driveway maintenance. We mow with it sparingly for mowing as our Hustler 60" Super Z completes the job much more quickly. I purchased the tractor after moving to our new home in 2008 after calculating that we had moved 48-ton of landscaping stone by hand and wheelbarrow at our previous home. My carpal tunnel couldn't take much more of that kind of exercise. The loader is used considerably and I'm not sure how we could do without it. The tractor just fits (with approx 1/4" to spare)inside of our seven foot garage door with the ROPs in the upward position. I use a back blade to clear snow and a box blade maintain our 200' stone driveway. I may eventually trade up for a DK tractor for a larger front bucket...I won't do that until I have a detached garage or pole barn. A backhoe would have come in handy and may also consider that purchase.."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: I definitely love the HST. Cons: Small loader bucket...limited capacity. Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA IN I also considered buying:

"Since I've gotten this machine I've graded roads, expanded my yard, tilled gardens, and chipped up trees. I also pull a 60-inch box blade, and during the winter plow with a 60-inch strait blade. All without issue. The only reason that I put 3 stars on features is that it doesn't have some of the extra lights and electronic PTO functions of the high dollar machines. The machine has been great, it has done everything I asked and more. I have and will continue to recommend this machine to anyone who asks."

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Heavy strong machine, simple to use. Cons: None of the fancy stuff like the big buck tractors. Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 Acres Location: USA VT I also considered buying: Massey Ferguson 1024, John Deere 1023e
