Anyone have one? What do you think of it? About 20-25k for a 45hp 4x4 with a loader. I've read a lot of good reviews. John Deere is about 10k more for a comparable tractor.

I think they are getting good reports.

I have the kioti CK 35 hst with the front loader and backhoe I bought it new in 2011 for about $25,000 Kubota was pushin 30000... putting Kubota and kioti side by side you can see that the kioti is a More rugged build...You Are looking at the next frame size up from mine

The only thing I've had to do was change fluids filters and grease it.... new battery last winter Because my tractor stays outside under cover and still started when it was 15 below

Do you baby it or do you work it? Looking to do light field work, skid logs for personal firewood, snow removal and some grade work at the house.

I push it to the limits once in a while working on snowmobile trails Or pushing snow banks back trying to use it like a bulldozer instead of a farm tractor....The tractor will take a lot of abuse just as long as you maintain it and you don't beat the living snot out of it like you would if it was a piece of excavation equipment

I got a Ck4010hst last month and love it. I just hauled out several loads of hardwood logs from our back woods with ease. I haven't done any digging with the backhoe yet but it comes off with just 2 pins. Everything is quick connect and no problems. I added a ratchet rake to the bucket and cleared half an acre of brush and saplings and pallet forks for hauling logs. Cheap attachments that work great.

A buddy of mine sells them, they've been good - and he'd be honest with me if they hadn't.

My brother has run Kobotas for years, he's thinking his next one will be a Kioti. He's not real impressed with Kobotas hydraulics, Kiotis are supposed to be stronger. I don't know.

The XP was the most fun sled ever made - but I liked my XR more. The 850 takes it to a whole different level.

I have a 2008 ck 35 with 700hr on it the I've owned since new. Just in the middle of splitting the tractor to fix a leaking transmission seal. If it wasn't for the leak I think there a decent tractor. If I was to do it again I would not buy one.

Wow. 700hrs in 8 years is not a lot of use. I've read some reviews of leaking seals in the rear and front ends. Seem to be few and far between though. How are the parts? Are they $$$$?

Parts are not to expensive but at least a couple weeks wait witch is a joke. Going to change the input shaft bearing as it seams bad and prob took the seal out. Bearing looks pitted. Also more metal filings on magnet drain plug than there should be. I'm going to sell it when it's back together and buy a kubota.

I have a 2009 Bobcat CT445 that is the same as a DK45 HST and I love it. It moves a ton of snow and is light enough to use with a 3pt hitch finish mower.
