On the lookout for a versatile workhorse that will adapt and excel in a variety of applications? The RX Series should be on your radar. Ideal for loader work, smaller farming tasks, vineyard or nursery operations, the RX range is powered by Daedong’s high output and low noise diesel engines. 

Andrew Belfrage, an agricultural contractor working in the Geelong and Bellarine regions of Victoria, bought a Kioti RX7030 with 4-in-1 loader at the back end of 2018. He uses it for pasture work, ploughing, fertilising, hay contracting, spraying and slashing. 

“It’s a well-built, versatile tractor with plenty of power,” says Andrew. “The cabin is very comfortable, with all the specs I’m looking for and is very easy to operate. I like having a power shuttle lever and no clutch – it makes driving so easy. I’d recommend the RX for anyone needing a good strong, all-round utility tractor.” 

Available as a ROPS or cab, there is a host of standard features, too, such as 24×24 fully-synchronised transmission, 4WD power steering, forward-reverse shuttle and independent rear PTO. A new streamlined hood improves operator visibility, while the step through platform, A/C, heating and ventilation, plus anti-vibration tech in the cabin, greatly enhances driver comfort. 

Matt Whitley, from Mangoplah in NSW’s Riverina region, needed a second tractor and got the heads up about Kioti from a local farming friend. He did his homework, compared brands and specs, and realised the Kioti RX8030 ROPS tractor delivered the goods at a much better price.  

“I got the RX8030 with the standard 4-in-1 bucket and Euro hitch,” says Matt, “which means I can use it with the big bucket or pallet forks. I use it for slashing, post hole digging and moving materials around. It tows the feedout cart and helps with silage.” 

On 320 acres, Matt raises lambs, crops and he is also a livestock agent. His requirement was for a machine versatile enough to deal with everyday maintenance tasks, as well as powerful enough to lift 600kg silage bales. 

“It’s great for getting around in and very easy to manoeuvre,” says Matt. “The main thing is the convenience of having a reliable tractor that’s so versatile. I can just grab the Kioti and go. It has made day-to-day operations much more efficient.” 

When it comes to the hydraulics, standard dual remote hydraulic valves accommodate multiple attachments and implements. A mid-mount double acting valve and a single lever joystick for loader operations are also standard, and each RX is equipped with two external hydraulic lift cylinders with a lift capacity of 2,075 kg (the RX8030 has a capacity of 2,256 kg).
