View Full Version : Vote what Z you use

05-21-2005, 01:43 AM
Just wanted to make a thread about this (searched and didn't find one). Wanted to see how many people use each brand of mower.

Maybe you could also post what mower you voted and how its doing, this could turn into a good user guide for people shopping.

Istarted out with a husky 42" then went with a SUTECK then found a used Scag Saber Tooth Tiger 72" with 643 hrs and Then went with a Kubota ZD 18-54" traded it for a ZD28 60 pro last Aug just sold it and went and bought a new Scag Turf Tiger 61" Advantage deck with a Kaw 29 DFI picked it up Sat a week ago , only thing that seems to work for me is a Scag . I would like to try a Grasshopper next year as Scag wants $15600.00 for a Saber Tooth Tiger and the Grasshopper is a bit cheaper but like the old saying once bit twice shy .I have tried other brands but will not do what the Scag Saber Tooth will do

Kubota ZD21. Some day I will buy the ZD25 after we get a few thousand more hours on this one. I have had extended demos of Exmark,Hustler,Cub Tank and Grass Hopper. They all cut grass great, but I really prefer the features of the Kubotas.And I wont go back to an aircooled gas engine.

I own a Walker 48 inch GHS deck with a 26 EFI Kohler. At work we have 2 Kubota diesel 60 inch decks, 5 Hustler Super Zs with 60 inch decks, 1 John Deere Quik Trac with 54 inch Deck and 1 JD 1600 Turbo Diesel WAM.The 7 iron JD deck gives the best cut by a little bit.

Can you elaborate on why you're so sold on the hyro-cooled engine and what features in particular you like on the Kubota? I was really liking the ZG23 until a few people on this site warned me that it's not 'really' a commercial-grade mower. And that their consumer focus gets them a higher price point before and after market (i.e. commercial LCOs are smarter than the Average Joe).
