Ki­oti CK3710 drives life­style block makeover

Leo van Geel says his new Ki­oti CK3710 trac­tor has been a god­send. He has used it to clean up his large Te Puna life­style block, which was in pretty bad shape when he bought it a year ago. Leo knew he had to get a good trac­tor to un­der­take the ex­ten­sive clean up needed on the prop­erty. “I learned my les­son years ago that you think you can do the job with an old trac­tor to save some money, but in the end the old trac­tor doesn’t do the job and you end up spend­ing more money on it than if you had just bought a de­cent one,” he says. “I went to Cap­i­tal Trac­tors in Tau­ranga as soon as we moved in here last Oc­to­ber. They showed me the dif­fer­ent mod­els and sizes avail­able and I knew I had to go for the Ki­oti CK3710. You need the right trac­tor for the job and if it’s too small you will re­gret it.” “The pad­docks needed a lot of main­te­nance. We ripped out all the fenc­ing and cleaned up all the ditches around the prop­erty and re­vi­talised the land,” he says. “I also bought a mulcher and there are var­i­ous lift­ing jobs we need to do be­cause it’s a big tidy up that we’re do­ing. The trac­tor has good hy­draulic power to lift things and the four-in-one bucket is def­i­nitely my favourite fea­ture, with the ad­di­tional grab­bing abil­ity. You can scoop things and also pull them.” Leo says the CK3710 is com­fort­able and easy to op­er­ate with the three-range hy­dro­static drive.
