I traded my Century 28 HP gear drive on this machine. The KIOTI is like no tractor I have ever owned. Everything seems to be right where it should be from an ergonomic standpoint. They hydrostatic transmission is so easy to use. I do keep reaching for the shuttle shift lever which is of course not there. The visibility and comfort of the KIOTI cabin is as good as it gets. It’s almost as comfortable as a pickup. Can’t wait to plow snow in short sleeves next winter. The unit has tons of power and the electric 4WD switch makes shifting in and out of 4WD effortless. I also found the hydraulic system to be very fast and it took a little getting used to. Slow and steady control inputs on the loader and the hoe are the key here.
