I run the kubota zd326. I have the 26hp diesel and I'm pushing a lot larger machine. I average 1gph cutting the worse grass working the engine for all she has. So far 0 issues with 1100 hrs. I have another 1800 hrs on my diesel grasshopper and no issues. I call false on the hills. I have never had a mower out do this kubota on a hill. It will not slide period unless the grass is wet, then any turn tire will. Some of the grasshopper guys on here are getting over 9000 hrs. These engines are 6000hrs before they expect an overhaul. You could see 10000-12000 hrs before an overhaul if you treat it well and I've gravely has its cooling system right. No real cons except weight, pro's are toque, fuel, life, and over lower maintenance.
