I think they went with to small of engines.23.5 24.5 with a bagger will probably be under powered IMO. I wish they would have used there own 27hp in all three 48/54/60 inch cuts.

that's probably because they are using the true ratings now.

So the 23.5 is probably like a 26-27hp from previous ratings?
I went to my local dealer today, These things are built very beefy with lots of operator room. The deck spindles are huge.Seat and arm rest are very comfortable even without the suspension kit.I think Kubota will do well with these new 700 series.

My dealer had a 2014 ZD326.It arrived yesterday with the 700`s I can tell ya, it is huge and seats you very high.I actually thought the 700 had a much more comfortable seat.

are you sure its a 2014? When I talked to my dealer they said kubota hasn't even released the specs yet. No pictures or nothing. It should look nothing like the 2013 zd300's.

Not sure! He said the only difference he knew of was they have a new ZD326H coming out in spring that will be a 72 inch instead of 60. but is pretty much the same mower as 2013`s.Sounds like he may not be aware of the new 300 series.
