Three Diesel UTVs Designed to Get the Job Done

Headquartered in Wendell, N.C., Kioti Tractor, a division of Daedong-USA Inc., is a market-driven company that has been supplying tractor models in the 22- to 110-hp range to the U.S. and Canadian markets for more than 30 years. Building on the company’s core product line and history, Kioti introduced the Mechron 2200 utility vehicle (UTV) into the market in 2011. After much success, Kioti revamped and expanded their UTV offering in 2015 with the addition of two new models, including a two-row model.

Whether you need a worker on the farm or a way into the woods, all three Kioti Mechron models get the job done. With four-wheel, fully independent, rear dual A-arm suspension and front MacPherson type suspension, the wide track offers increased stability and a smooth ride on even rough terrain. The tight turning radius and rear anti-sway bar provides cornering and handling. Furthermore, the Mechron features the widest cargo bed in its class, excellent payload capabilities, 1,300 lbs of towing capacity and a steel frame construction for increased agility and maneuverability, says Kioti. Powered by a 22-hp Daedong diesel engine, continuously variable transmission and a time-proven Daedong gearbox with two speeds (Hi/Lo), the Mechron translates power into performance.

The Kioti Mechron 2200 and the Mechron 2200PS provide a wide and flat walk-through design and comfortable seating for up to three passengers offering leg and foot room for easy entry and exit. Each of these two models boasts more than 112-in. in length and 60-in. in width and a standard heavy-duty brush guard. The Mechron 2200 offers rack-and-pinion steering, while the 2200PS offers power steering. The Mechron 2240 is as tough, dependable and fun as its predecessor, says Kioti, but with twice the room. This newly designed UTV features two-row bench seating with a hinged front row seat perfect for extra storage. All of the models have a standard 2-in. rear hitch receiver, enabling users to attach a trailer and receiver equipped with implements with ease.

Wide ranges of options are available for the Mechron including a sun canopy, front hitch receiver, rear screen kit, windshield, work lights, fog lights and suspension dust guard kit. To make work easier, users can opt for the hydraulic dump kit on any model. A field cab is also an available option on the Mechron 2200 and 2200PS.

Advice to Buyers

“Before purchasing a utility vehicle, consider the primary use of the vehicle and research the market carefully to make sure you optimize your investment,” states Joel Hicks, senior product support manager for Kioti Tractor. “Whether you need a powerful workhorse for the farm, a trail guide for those hard-to-reach hunting spots or a multi-passenger UTV to take the kids fishing, visit your local dealer to test drive various models to see which machine will best suit your needs.”
