The NS series from KIOTI resonates with the rural population

The NS series of tractors was among the most attractive new products presented by KIOTI at the National Agricultural Machinery Show in 2022. The series – which includes five models with engines from 45 to 58 hp – fills a gap in the offer of KIOTI tractors, which change some electrical and mechanical controls.

This translates into a tractor that has good power at a lower price.

“We saw an opportunity between our smaller DKSE and NX series, which are more luxurious, state-of-the-art cars,” said Greg Bibee, KIOTI’s Director of Strategic Sales and Marketing. “People were looking for NX capabilities, but without all the trinkets.”

For those who are familiar with KIOTI machines, from the operator platform onwards, the NS series will be very similar to the NX series. But from the operator platform back, it will correlate more with the previous generation DKSE series.

There are a lot of people who want simplicity in a tractor and want a direct feel in the controls, so the new NS series will reach that favorable point.

“The difference between it and the NX is that it will have a slightly more compact operator station. And many of the commands are more mechanical instead of electronic, “said Bibee.

There are other changes. For example, the charger joystick or other third-party features are integrated into the operator’s station – a “cleaner” approach that seems more intentional in its design – while on DKSE, the attachment was part of the charger.

The ROPS version of the NS series began shipping in the fall, but a closed cab version is expected to be available in mid-2022.

The cab includes front and rear work lights, windscreen wipers, Bluetooth options and outstanding ergonomics.

“Our cabins are known for being very spacious and open,” Bibee said.

The NS series is 136.4 inches long and 67.1 inches wide. The smaller NS4710 and NS 4710H both have 44.9 hp and 36.6 hp PTO engines, while the NS5310H comes with a 50.3 hp and 41.8 hp PTO engine. The two largest sizes, the NS610 and NS610H, have both 57.7 hp and 48.3 hp and 47.9 hp PTO engines, respectively.
