I know that Kubota makes a real tough machine, that should last for many years. Cut quality/fuel efficency I could only speculate as I've never ran a ZTR by them.

Which model are you looking at? They are all very well built, cut quality is decent to good depending on the age. The diesel motors will outlast the mower itself and get good fuel economy. .5-1 gph is some numbers I've heard out of the diesels. They ride pretty rough though.

I've got a ZD326 Kubota and it is a very good, tough mower! I've got 190 hrs on it so far and it gets around 1 gph + or - 0.3 depending on how tough the mowing is. As far as the seat/ride goes, mine is really good but it comes with a suspension seat. I wouldn't buy a new mower anymore if it didn't have a suspension seat on it. It makes all the difference in the world!! As far as cut goes, it is on a par with my JD Ztrak. I don't think you can go very far wrong with a Kubota, but my deciding factor would be the dealer support that is available!!

kubotas are built like tanks. The company i used to work for we cut some rough areas and tall grass. We had ZD331's with 72in decks. Our fuel economy prob wasnt the same as people cutting regular grass. When we were cutting regular grass they would prob run for 4 hours or so and we would use around 1 of the 2 tanks up. The built in jack is also kinda nice to have incase u get wrapped around something.

Priced one today a 331 with 72" deck for $14,250 + tax. Good looking machine and the mower deck looked very similar on the bottom to a exmark.

You will probably just have to stop someone who is using one and ask. I have tried to get a review on them with very little success. The few who have have been helpful but very little on the net in what you are looking for.

what kind of fuel economy do they get. I have heard from 1/2 gallon an hour to 1.5 an hour. How is the cut quality, ride and hillside performance? I would really appreciate your input.

Fuel use is very low unless real tall. Never used more than about 1gal/hr. Cut is great, lift on the blades we use is low,I think the high lift is to much in thick grass that come standard. Hillside performance is pretty good, if you are. They are top heavy in that respect. Overall just an industrial machine that never fails.

Thank You! That is some of the answers I have been wanting answered and just from the reviews I have seen on this site I think there are several on here wanting to know the real answers.

I'm pretty sure you're looking for a 326 or a 331 but I have a ZD 321 it does super great on fuel on the 6 gallons of diesel I can get 7 1acre houses done on that tank. So a little less than 1 gph.
