Kubota ZG 23 vs. Hustler Super Z

I'm now considering purchasing one of these two mowers. Both have same horse power and both 54" cuts. Basically same price on both. Anyone have any strong opinions as to which one to buy and why? Personally I like the hustler, but the customer service that will come with the Kubota is second to none, and I'm a little worried about the Hustler service. Thanks.

no contest

This is simple. The Hustler all the way. I have looked at the ZG and it isn't commercial. It has commercial components, but not like the diesels. I don't have a Hustler dealer around me but I looked online. Looks like a nice mower.

Go with an Exmark 52".... It's competitive in price and an awesome machine!

one thing you need to think about is dealer support when something goes wrong. that alone can make a big difference

Go with the Super Z, but get at least the 60" deck!

Their 54" deck has 0" trimside.

You'll have much better resale with a 60" also.
