I do not understand this statement. From the kubota website, a zd221 with a 54" deck weighs 1224 pounds. The zg227 with 54" deck weighs 1199 pounds. Does not seem to me that 25 pounds would would make a difference in rutting or not. Unless the zg has wider tires or something else going on.
Only reason I say anything is because I am interested in a zd221 with 48 or 54 deck. Kubota has the lightest diesel that I know of other than everride........but everride does not show to carry a diesel any more.
