KIOTI Tractor, a division of Daedong-USA Inc., has added two all new models to its CS Series. The CS2220 and CS2520 are now available at KIOTI dealers across North America. They are easy to operate, yet powerful enough to meet customer demands, making them perfect for a wide variety of tasks. The all new models boast an ergonomic operator station with standard features including a tilt wheel with power steering, a joystick valve with quick attach and detach loaders, as well as a precision built KIOTI diesel engine.
“We at KIOTI know that sometimes big things come in small packages, and our two all new sub-compact CS models do just that,” said Peter Dong-Kyun Kim, president and CEO of Daedong-USA, KIOTI Tractor Division. “With an ergonomically designed work station, plus the power and versatility to get the job done, the CS2220 and CS2520 are hard to beat. We’re excited to see these models get to work across North America.”
The CS2220 and CS2520 are compatible with KIOTI’s new SB2420 backhoe and SL2420 front end loader. The SL2420 offers quick attach and detach, and dual bucket cylinders, with a maximum lift height of 73.7 inches. It also has a lift capacity of 1,062.3 pounds at full height.
The new 'pin-less' design enables the operator to quickly and efficiently remove or install the loader in minutes without having to remove or install loader pins to secure it to the tractor. The additional quick attach system on the front makes switching attachments a breeze. The CS2220 and CS2520 come standard with a joystick valve to give operators convenient, comfortable, and precise control over the loader to lift, lower, and carry loads anywhere — regardless of experience or skill level.
The new models are also compatible with KIOTI’s SM2454 and SM2460 mid-mount mowers, both of which include drive-over decks for easy attach and detach.
A 21- or 24.5-hp precision built KIOTI diesel engine boasts a large power output with low fuel consumption. Engaged by a single lever, four-wheel drive is standard across these two new CS Series models, and they can reach forward speeds of up to 9.57 mph.
Designed with ease of operation in mind, the CS2220 and CS2520 offer a standard tilt wheel, which ensures all operators can reach and turn the wheel comfortably. The models include USB and 12-volt power sockets for ease of use with accessories. Additionally, twin hydrostatic transmission (HST) pedals allow for easy, quick forward and reverse with smooth engagement, acceleration and deceleration.
These two tractors feature a streamlined hood design to improve operator visibility with or without a loader installed. Additionally, the vertical-opening hood provides easy access to engine maintenance and service points. The rear power take off (PTO) and high-capacity three-point hitch can accommodate a variety of implements. Plus, the standard mid PTO (2,200 rpm) provides the ability to operate implements, such as a mid-mount mower or snow blower.
