RK has added a new model tractor. The RK25H. If anyone hasn't seen or heard of it yet, these machines are impressive on paper. I've yet to see this model in person.
These come with standard with USB ports, bluetooth speakers, and wireless phone chargers.
Here are some specs. The most unexpected to me was the direct injection engine. Hope deere is planning to overhaul the 2025R to compete....

If they've fixed the ergonomics on these, then they may really take off. I thought the RK24 was very uncomfortable, It was borderline worse than the Kubota BX. Looks like they have finally moved loader controls to the fender.

I actually bought my 1025 based on comfort but I still get "Spec Envy" looking at these.

This appears to be a YT video of the same machine just with original TYM logos.

Says that Goodyear R14 are the standard tires, the prices is certainly attractive

Edited:

The RK tractors are made by TYM in Korea, not that this is a bad thing, just stated as fact.

Pretty interesting - certainly a great price for what you get (at least on paper).
What's up with the PTO speed across the 3 machines - 2000/2500/2100? I thought there was a set 'standard'.

The RK tractors are made by LS in Korea, not that this is a bad thing, just stated as fact. LS makes tractors for many other companies, even New Holland.
Is LS and TYM the same?

Yes, they are impressive. If I had a Rural King even remotely close to me, I would have sprung for the RK25.

The RK25 is going to make it very hard for them to sell their RK24H machines with only a $1,000 price difference. If someone is in the market for a machine this size, why would you buy the RK24H when comparing the two?

There are no Rural King stores in this area. Does each RK store have a service and parts department?

I have several RKs kind of close to me and only 2 sell tractors. I don’t think their “service and parts department” is what you’re thinking.
Honestly though, you can probably order parts through any TYM dealer or online. They’re pricing is really good along with the tractor specs.

TYM and Yanmar are not Chinese companies.
I googled it, and your right... Korean. I owned a Kioti that had Korean roots but was made in NC. I was impressed with the Kioti.

I’ll say this, I looked over a TYM at a dealer not too far away.... it might as well be made in China, my thoughts.

Kioti USA is headquartered in NC but their website says they distribute, not manufacture, tractors to US dealers. Nothing wrong with a S Korean built machine, they’re building nice cars these days too.
And of course Yanmar (Japan) has been making engines for Deere for decades.
The TYM tractors are great on specs, but might be a little lacking on the fit and finish details seen on most Deere models. They still seem to be a solid value and have been around for quite awhile.
