Imported into the UK by RECO, the Mechron will join their existing range of compact tractors from the Korean manufacturer and feature the same high build-quality, reliability and versatility that the Kioti brand is fast becoming renowned for. Initial demand indicates that the UTV is set to be very popular, prompting RECO to double its initial stock order to cope with demand from UK dealers.
The machine offers selectable 4WD in conjunction with a limited slip front differential plus the ability to lock the rear differential when ground conditions get tough. The machine has a top speed of 40kph, hydraulic disc brakes all round and the higher than average 12” ground clearance (front to back) ensures that all integral working parts are well protected from possible obstructions on the ground.
The high-sided tipping cargo box (with 500kg capacity and optional hydraulic tip) and rear receiver hitch (towing capacity of 590kg) make the UTV perfect for almost any application whether you are transporting mowing equipment to the pitch or personnel around the stadium. The 4WD and locking rear differential makes driving in wet, hilly conditions a breeze and the high ground clearance enables you to drive almost anywhere.
The machine comes fitted with a four-post roll-over protection bar and optional plastic canopy – perfect for the unpredictable british weather – great for providing shade on a hot summer’s day and also for keeping off any light rain showers. For harsher weather conditions, the ROPS can be fitted with detachable front and rear screens and side doors to protect the driver from heavier rain and stronger winds.
Optional extras are available to increase the versatility of the UTV even further- these include front winch, front receiver hitch and hydraulic tip. Currently available in the signature Kioti orange colour, a camouflage option is planned to be available in 2010, along with an EC homologated version to enable you to drive it legally on the road.
The Mechron will be making its debut appearance in the UK at SALTEX this year. Visit the RECO stand W03 to see why its arrival has been so eagerly anticipated! An official launch event has been planned for late September, details to be announced soon.
