I am really digging how they made it. I just wish they would put a seat on there worth something. Like a zpuffer from factory would just be a smart idea. Or an air ride grammer. Also this weighes 400lbs more than the z100.

Kubota ztrs are built like tanks. Spindles are ginormous.

Are they just more heavy duty then the residential ones they have out already. You can buy the zg222 with a pro deck in the 7 to 8 range ain't it considered a commercial gas mower

the most bottom end zd222 with a stamped deck is $8100. If you bump an engine size up is $9800 and yes its full commercial. The z100 is $4700-5500ish and zg227 is $8100-$1000 and I assume this z700 is going fall in the middle.

There's some nice features on this thing, many of which are almost exact copies of what Deere has been using for several years now. I'm not sure about that front baffle in wet conditions though. I see the chute is huge, but the baffle is designed to recirculate the clippings more before exiting. I'm guessing it will clump some in the wet, and/or thick stuff. It reminds me of Bob Cats newest front baffle in the way it is curved in front of each blade past the center of the arc. I think if they had left off the extra bit of curve at the end of each chamber, they would have had an excellent design. It needs rear anti scalp wheels too.
