Three Kioti tractors are playing an important part in keeping the pitch at the world-famous Headingley Carnegie Stadium in Leeds and its 35-acre training ground in top condition for the Leeds Rhinos rugby league and Leeds Carnegie rugby union clubs.

As part of a major up-grading of its ground-care equipment, Leeds Rugby chose three models from the Kioti CK and DK ranges supplied by Longs Groundcare Machinery. The two smaller models – a CK20 and CK35 – work at the stadium, while the 50hp turbo-powered DK501 is based at the training ground.

Both the CK models have three-cylinder engines with full hydrostatic drive systems, three speed ranges, cruise control and four wheel drive. The 35hp CK35 has extra-wide turf tyres to avoid damaging the pitch, as well as a full weather-proof cab, while a 0.16m3 loading bucket with a quick-fit system has been supplied for the 20hp CK20.
