Kioti grows up, and into utilities

The South Korean brand adds 
three new and more powerful 
models to its tractor line

Kioti wants to be a bigger player in the mainstream ag tractor market. As part of that effort, it recently added three more models to the top end of its relatively new PX Series. Prior to the introduction of these new machines, the brand was really only a player in the compact and sub-compact tractor segments. Now, the PX Series pushes the available horsepower offerings up into the utility tractor class. The new models deliver 93, 103 and 110 engine horsepower, making them the most powerful the brand has released so far.

“Kioti first introduced the PX Series in 2014 with the PX9020,” said Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, president and CEO of the Kioti Tractor Division of Daedong-USA in a press release. “Now, with the addition of three new models to the series, we are further expanding into the agriculture market.”

The diesel engines under PX hoods deliver power through a synchronized power shuttle transmission, which allows the operator to perform loader work without pressing the clutch pedal. When fitted with the brand’s KL1153 front-end loaders, the new models offer a lift capacity of just over 8,000 pounds (3,636 kilograms).

The new PX Series machines also get a larger fuel tank with 34.3 gallon (130 litres) capacity to stretch working times between re-fuelling. The enhanced PX Series models come standard with dual rear remote hydraulic valves.
