Strange indeed. Their NA HQ's is here in NC and parts are plenty available throughout the US. Wonder why he says he is having issues. Has he tried calling them direct because it may be a dealer issue rather than a Kioti issue.Ok, I have an opportunity to get a Kioti, and the problem it has is a bad wheel bearing. The owner says he is having trouble finding repair parts, so I'm a title concerned with that. Any tips, thoughts. I will get the model number as soon as I can.
He never gave a model to look the part # up.Strange indeed. Their NA HQ's is here in NC and parts are plenty available throughout the US. Wonder why he says he is having issues. Has he tried calling them direct because it may be a dealer issue rather than a Kioti issue.
Mine's a 2009 CK20HST w/Kioti FEL & Kioti b'hoe - I agree with everything that 'Larry in OK' said except for the 'problems' mentioned - mine has more hours on it with absolutely ZERO issues - a great little tractor that gets in where my bigger ones won'tMy CK20S is just a little over a year old and right at 100 hours, barely broke in.
I had one minor issue early on when a screw backed out of the loader joystick control. A drop of lock tight fixed that. Also the spade connector on the horn would vibrate off but a squeeze with some pliers solved that.
Being a small tractor does have some limits and once in a while I think I maybe should have gotten the next size up but the small footprint of the CK20 really is the right size for 95% of my operation.
It is easy and straight forward to service. My dealer so far has seemed eager and able to help me out but I haven't asked much of them.
