New Kubota

I brought home my new Kubota ZD331 the other day. If it would just stop raining here I may get a few cuts in before the snow starts flying.

Its got a 60" deck, 31hp diesel. Its got hydrolic deck lift pedals and parking brake pedals in the front. 1750lbs, its a heavy sucker but I think it has more power and a more comfortable ride than anything else around here. I've always loved the dependibility of the Kubota engines.

Very Nice U will love it! My ZD326 was best purchase ever powers through everything and will run forever. Cut quality is flawless and the deck lift is soo much better than manual lift. My 26 hp has power to spare so your 31 hp should be a monster!!

You are going to love that thing. The hydros are so solid, the deck is indestructible, and it cuts really clean...
