Kioti down underBy John Wise (I am an Owner) on Jun 14, 2011
We acquired the Kioti Mechron 2200 at the beginning of 2010 (Australian Delivery). We uae it on a 320 acre property which can get pretty wet. The Kioti is just fantastic at traversing soft ground. I did manage to get it bogged once but only with half a ton of load in the tray and me being over confident.
Our ... Kioti has a hydraulic tip tray and this is very useful. I notice that tractor type hydraulic remotes are fitted which presumably means it could drive log splitters and the like as well as the tray.
The three cylinder diesel hasn't missed a beat and pulls really well. I often pull a trailer with a ton of logs as well as having half a ton in the tray.
All in all a very useful little machine which has become our preferred means of travel around the farm.
