I bought a ZD326 a little over a year ago. No regrets but beware of losing the pin out of the deck castors. This has happened twice to me. The last time a few weeks ago was disasterous as it got under the deck and tangled with the blades. Replacement was about $65.00. The problem is if you are getting near small trees, brush, or vines it will snag the pin and pull it out without you knowing about it and befroe you know it no caster
. I checked with Kubota and they said this is a common problem. Recomended fix was to use a bolt with locking nuts instead of the pin. If you never have to change the caster settings this should work allright.
