What should the price differential be between a diesel or a gas powered ZTR. I have the option of a Toro ZMaster 27hp gas 52" deck for $7,600. or a Kubota ZD 18 54" deck for $8700.
Which would be the best deal.

Just got the toro 60 inch over the Kubota 60 inch The Kubota was a great machine but did not like the price difference. Also did not want to carry another type of fuel. My buddy has the Kubota and swears by it.

Can you demo both machines ? Try that for the best info you can get on each machine.

In my opinion , there is such a large difference in horsepower between these two machines , [33% difference !] yet the cutting width is almost the same, and so is the weight of the machines - so I would think this would have quit an effect on their performance.

The only good way to determin if this is acceptable for YOU, is to run them both and see for yourself.
