My understanding is they are eventually going to be making their own machine in house. It seems like maybe the rebranded Kioti approach was just a way to hop on a hot market ASAP? Possibly to also start building brand recognition?I was interested that they came out with a tractor line (again) but when I heard it was a rebranded Kioti I lost interest. I'm sure Kioti is good but I was hoping for Bobcat to make their own and put their own stamp on it. They make good construction equipment, and their mowers are good too so I had high hopes.
Either way, having more reputable names in the CUT market is a good thing. Keeps the big names (Kubota, Deere, etc) from becoming complacent.
