Behind the Scenes with RK Tractors

On March 20, one building of our Waverly, OH warehouse was converted into an assembly facility for our brand-new RK Tractors! Check out our behind-the scenes photos as Rural King begins this exciting new venture!

Front Tractor Shot

RK Tractors will be sold in 7 pilot stores beginning April 1.

The 7 pilot stores will be Mattoon,IL, Waverly, Circleville, Heath, and New Philadelphia, OH, Parkersburg, WV, and Ashland, KY.

Our professionally-trained associates and service technicians skillfully assemble all RK Tractors.

In addition, each of the pilot stores will be a dedicated tractor center. Each store has sales and fully trained service teams ready to serve you.

Never worry about finding parts! A complete stock of replacement parts is available from the Waverly, OH assembly facility within 2 days.

Tractor Assembly Area

RK Tractors offer ten models in the sub-compact, compact, and utility sizes, from 19HP to 55HP.  They feature cab and open station models, hydrostatic and shuttle shift transmissions, and more standard features than any other brand.  Our tractors will come with everything you need, from standard rear remote hydraulic valves to front and rear work lights, and don’t forget our superior power and performance.

Prices range from $9,998 for the 19HP RK19 Hydrostatic sub-compact to $26,799 for the 55HP, Turbo-Charged RK55 Hydrostatic utility tractor with full HVAC cab. 

In the photo below, you can see various states of assembly, including the backhoe attachments (left), the cab tractors being prepped for tires (middle), and ROPS tractors with tires installed (right).

Available attachments include RK Tractors backhoes, front loaders, and mid-mount mowers. All standard 3-point implements, including our exclusive RK by King Kutter implements, also work seamlessly with these tractors.


You can see several of the models in the photo below. All are cleaned, inspected, and ready to help you get the job done!

    Your article about your new tractor line says “assembly” multiple times, but does not mention who is actually manufacturing the major components that you are assembling together to make your tractors. Can you let us know what company or companies is/are manufacturing the engines, transmissions, etc., and what country/countries they are located in? I would like to buy American if at all possible. Thanks.

      We’ve partnered with several companies for the different components of RK Tractors:

      It’s important to note that no tractors under 60 HP are manufactured in the United States.

      Tong Yang Moolsan manufactures our tractors in the same ISO-9001 certified facility in Korea that manufactures several of the top tractor brands, and the tractors are assembled at our Waverly, OH facility.

      Our Yanmar diesel engines are manufactured in Adairsville, GA.

      Our tires and wheels are manufactured by Quincy, IL based Titan International, the world’s leading supplier of off-road tire & wheel assemblies. We also offer tires manufactured by Carlstar Group (Carlisle Tires), based in Franklin, TN.

      The RK by King Kutter implements are made in Winfield, AL. King Kutter is the leader in small tractor implements.

      Rim Guard liquid tire ballast, aka “beet juice”, is manufactured in Wyoming, MI and is standard with RK 37 and RK 55 models purchased with a front loader.

      Thanks for your question!

    I live in upper east TN and was wondering if you were possibly looking to expand in this area? TSC needs competition in our area. I am located 40 miles from Bristol Race track , they host NASCAR racing

    1. Sue Francis Post author

      Hi John,
      It looks like our closest store to you would be our Knoxville, TN store. We are always on the lookout for good locations, though, so I’ll pass on your comment!

  4. Eric E Cook Sr

    Any chance the Greenville,Ohio store will be getting a few tractors so we may get a look at them. The price is right. I would like more information and a look at them.

    1. Sue Francis Post author

      Hi Eric,
      We are hoping to roll out the tractors to more stores next year, but at the moment, just the 7 pilot stores will have the tractors on hand. It looks like our Circleville, OH pilot store is the closest to you, if you feel like taking a road trip!
      Thanks for the question!

    Miss Sue,

    Is there a link to additional information on the warranty and spec sheet to the tractors?

    We’re in the market for one and trying to compare the major brands around us at the Circleville, OH location…as you may know we have Green, Blue, Orange, Red, and now another Red dealer within 30 minute drive 🙂 The more research I can do before being bombarded by sales people the better.

    1. Sue Francis Post author

      I hope to have that information for you in a shareable format by later this afternoon or first thing in the morning.

        1. Sue Francis Post author


          I’m adding the spec sheets for the RK24, RK37, and RK55 tractors to the original post. The RK19 information is still being formatted, and I’ll post when that is available.

          All RK Tractors have an 8 year, 3000 hour powertrain warranty, as well.

    1. Sue Francis Post author

      Yes, our mechanics are fully trained to perform all service and repair.
      Thanks for your question!

    Good for Rural King for getting back into tractors. I remember when they were a MF dealer for awhile.

    Looked over your tractors and prices, accessories and warranty. All I can say is wow. I don’t know if this is just a promo to get your product out but you are making these things look very attractive.

    Just out of curiosity are you guys going to be able to ship these tractors and can you special order certain items like R-1 Ag tires instead of the typical R-4.

    1. Sue Francis Post author

      Thank you for your question!

      We are planning to ship the tractors in the future, but as of now, we are unable to ship.

  7. Mike

    What rates/terms are available on these tractors if financed through RK? I do realize credit history is a factor, but am curious what best case scenario is?


  8. Larry

    I live in louisiana we dont have much of a choice when it comes to buying farm supply how bout coming to the south

    1. Sue Francis Post author

      We’re always looking for new locations! I’ll pass along your suggestion.

    Can I get mid mount mower, backhoe and front loader on a cab tractor? and if so which one and how much total?

    1. Sue Francis Post author

      The cab tractors will have rotary cutters available in our RK by King Kutter line, but the mid-mount mower is not available on RK37 or RK55.

      The RK24 has all 3 attachments available, but it does not have a cab option.

  10. Daniel R Leaders

    I will have to wait until they are available at all your stores . As I live in Southern Michigan . Your warranty looks to be the BEST of any other brand

  11. Walter

    I am very interested in the RK24H what store is closest to 39355 Quitman MS and what would be the shipping cost. Could you send me information on this tractor.


    1. Sue Francis Post author

      We have plans to ship the tractors in the future, but at the moment, shipping is not available.

      Thank you for your question!

    Will RK be a Service Center for all TYM tractors or just the ones built specifically for RK? Love the TYM tractors but actual dealers and service centers are far between. Will you carry customer purchaseable service parts for the TYM’s as well?

    1. Sue Francis Post author

      Hi Rich,

      We will be able to service TYM tractors at our 7 pilot stores, but we will not be able to complete warranty work on TYM’s.

      Thanks for your question!

  13. Steve c.

    I’ve been comparing the to to the yanmar’s for a couple weeks now, the biggest difference I see so far is the much cheaper price. I hope to find more of a diff. Today to justify the cost of the comperable rk to the yanmar’s.
