From liquid-cooled engines to 360-degree visibility, these utility tractors have it all.
By Jennifer M. Holloway
Choose from several air or liquid-cooled engines ranging from 21 to 33 horsepower with Steiner’s 430 Max four-wheel-drive articulating tractor. Add the hydrostatic transmission, power steering and choice of more than 20 Quick Hitch attachments to trim your fleet of unnecessary equipment.
Ventrac’s 4000 Series all-wheel-drive tractors combine a low center of gravity and weight transfer system to enhance performance. The series features S.D.L.A. (speed, direction, lift and auxiliary) controls, easy access operator platform and the Ventrac Mount System for more than 30 attachments. Optional Category 1 three-point hitch is available.
Kioti’s series of operator cabs for all eight models in its compact CK line offer 360-degree visibility, built-in ROPS, wide lockable doors, opening front and rear windows, washer/wiper system, heater and fan with temperature control, dome lights and more. Cabs are available for new and vintage CK models.
Steiner’s Model 235 tractor is powered by a 25-horsepower Kubota diesel engine, features a 14-inch turning radius and offers speeds up to 10 mph in open areas. Other specs include wide, 250 Mag six-ply front drive tires, a transmission differential lock that links both drive wheels for even traction and a Traction-Max weight transfer system.
