"I bought this tractor in June of 2016. I bought the tractor with a belly mower. The first 2 weeks, I mowed my yard and front ditch. Nothing out of the normal. I used my zero turn to mow it before with no issues.
Well, the third time I mowed the ditch, I raised the belly mower up and the planetary cracked where the mounting brackets are. I had the dealer fix it, no problem. It has happened 3 times since then. So I received a letter from there legal department stating that it is my fault for the failures of the machine and how they provided a tractor while it has been broken. Instead, I got a run down tractor to use for 2 weeks.
I recommend you do not purchase a tractor from Kioti."

"The customer service is the worst I have ever had to work with. When reordering, they promise dates and do not deliver until months later. Very poor customer service. If you order any attachment you will wait months for the equipment. "

2014 Kioti CK2510 HST
Model year: 2014Date Purchased: 2014-01-10Number of Hours: 2
"Took delivery of my new Kioti CK2510 HST about 6 weeks ago. It had 2 hours on it when delivered. I have just under 50 hours now and am ready for my first service. I have been using it so far for snow removal and we've had a pile of it this year.
The tractor is a beast and has done everything I expected of it and is amazing on fuel. I looked at Kubota and Yanmar but the Kioti was by far the best deal. Tractor, loader, backhoe with thumb, 72" rear blade and 60" rear finishing mower. I also had a block heater installed which has been a life saver as we have been in the middle of the polar vortex for the past 2 & 1/2 months."

"Aside from the usual ignition switch problems, very happy with this unit. Has had a hoe on the back at all times and have always been able to "get-r-done".
Seats are now cracking, & the hyd. cooler went s.... shortly after the time ran out on the warranty. Pretty easy to work on, but then, I've been wrenching all my life. I did have to change the hoe over to Cat controls, Can't stand JD controls."

"No trouble. Love this tractor. Do not have the hydro. Have bucket and do not use it because I have a standard. It's hard to use a loader with a standard shift a lot of clutch slippage I have a blade 7 foot which I can push snow as high as the hood.
I also have a 2410 which uses twice as much fuel as the CK25. Both power the 15,000 power plant nicely and at full capacity. The 2410 does a little better in this area because of the governor drop is less. I've actually had more problems with the 2410 than I ever had with the CK25.
I did put a luren cab on the CK25 which was $6000.00 But that has heat, radio, aux lighting, wipers. Love the diesels. I bought the CK25 because of the options it had over the CK20. I have 8 forward and 8 reverse with shuttle. It has a foot throttle which I use constantly. Has high and low PTO which I also use. If any one has a question you may e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org."

Kioti CK 25

Model year: 2006Date Purchased: 2008-07-05Number of Hours: 223
"Bought tractor new in 2008. Dealer was Bobcat dealer as well as Kioti. Dealer within one year was Bobcat only and did not want to support Kioti separately. Seemed odd because one of their selling points was Bobcat was built by Kioti(?!).
Tractor has performed admirably when needed---5 ft brush hogging in some very nasty conditions. Clutch had to be replaced at 199 hrs; suspect possible overuse or abuse during nephews use. Starter went out at 150 hrs. No warranty support for the starter even though it was only 1 day beyond 2 years after purchase. Tractor is used for garden tilling and some yard maintenance as well a keeping surrounding 25 acres mowing."
