Hi there,
wondering if you could help me with a quick bit of market research, Do you already run Diesel mowers? Would you run Diesel zero turns?
Thanks
Kevin

I'd buy a diesel if they made a smaller (52or 60) that was light weight and turbo. And yes I know Dixie, Gravely, and others have turbo diesels, but they aren't light or compact.

Tractors, truck, large ZTR mowers, mini and full size skid loaders.

But small machines, not worth the expense.

Have been running a diesel Z for 2.5 years now. I will never buy another gas powered rider again.

Diesel is all I run, gas is a joke to much to go wrong. And Kubota makes a 60in diesel and its awesome!

I hear you Kabooty fans, I like em' too, but they are awfully heavy and around here we've got soft soil ( especially during monsoon season!!

Kevin there is a local guy here who is big on diesels. He is also a member on this site but I have not seen him on here much lately! If I see him out I will stop him and ask him to drop you a line! By the way I like diesel as well but I think there are some makes of engines being overlooked!
