Wendell, NC – With an extensive and solid line of over thirty field-proven tractors providing a solid example of KIOTI ingenuity and quality, KIOTI is pleased to announce their new Ultimate Transport Vehicle™ for work and recreational uses.
Following years of design and both factory and field testing, these new UTVs are now available to the North American marketplace. The new MECHRON® is pure UTV, offering more combined productivity features for either work or recreation than any other UTV in North America.
The MECHRON® is driven by a fuel-efficient 22hp, 3-cylinder Daedong diesel engine that offers superb power with excellent fuel economy. With one of the widest tracks on the market and 4-wheel drive, the MECHRON® delivers stable operation and superior traction over challenging terrain conditions and up steep slopes. Front limited slip differential and rear differential locks are standard. The KIOTI UTV offers a 56.2 inch-wide dump bed – the widest on the market – for a 1600-pound payload capacity, almost 15% higher than the market leader.
For a smooth ride over rough terrain, the MECHRON® includes a MacPherson strut-like suspension up front and independent Dual-A arm wishbone with adjustable coil springs in the rear. An industry-leading 12” ground clearance creates a smoother ride on bumpy roads while helping to protect the underbody chassis even under heavy load/rough road conditions.
For excellent maneuverability and steering ease, the KIOTI UTV features rack and pinion steering and a choice of heavy-duty all-terrain, turf or UTV tires. Heavy-duty tubular steel frame construction and OSHA approved ROPS with seat belts are standard equipment. Its wide track and ergonomic design allow for a wide bench seat on which up to three people can work or play comfortably.
Standard equipment includes a two-speed continuously variable transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, a rear hitch receiver for a trailer or three-point hitch, a convenient operator station with lots of storage compartments, halogen headlights and an excellent design for easy servicing.
A wide range of options for the MECHRON® include a hydraulic lift for the dump bed, front receiver, rear screen kit, windshield, work lights, fog lights and a dump bed cargo extender kit. Standard attachments and implements include a pull-behind spreader, wire unroller, culti-packer, eight-blade disc harrow, flip discs and chain harrows.
KIOTI also offers a full line of tractors in the 22 – 90 horsepower range from their Wendell, North Carolina headquarters. Both the tractor line and the new UTV line are available through the KIOTI dealer network. Dealers can be found on the KIOTI website. KIOTI is now celebrating twenty-five years in North America.
