Do you have a problem running out of coolant in your vehicle? Do you not check your fluids?

Yup. The Kubota transaxles are crazy big. Strongest ones I have ever seen.

Lets see which will hold up better mowing down 4ft of overgrown grass on a 105 degree day for 10 hrs straight. That's why they are water cooled. I can run at -30 pushing snow off sidewalks, or 110 mowing in any condition and the engine will be the same temperature.

I've spit foot size rocks in half, ran the deck into a pole in the ground doing 10mph (left buses on my stomach from the handle bars), hit trees, broke trees, broke a metal water well casing, dropped off a trailer doing 40 mph and I can't remember what else. I think I've tested it enough blhahaha.

They do Kubota went to a different type of indirect injection after trying direct injection. They get more power and better emissions with this type of indirect injection. I actually really like glow plugs. Its always instant starts.

If I was mowing all day in one area it would be great but it does need more speed. I was definitely impressed with them. They give you a lot for the money. One thing I did notice was a Cat 35 appears to be a much beefier made engine?

Getting 10000 hours out of a mower is no problem with changing parts. There is a reason Hustler puts a life time warranty on the frame.

I haven't heard anyone say to much about them. I know perkins actually makes the engine for Cat. There is a reason why the Cat uses kubota engines in their Skid Steers now.

So you have never seen one......


Not to long ago you would be lucky to get 1000 hours out of Hustlers hydro system. They lost a huge market share with all the problems. Warranty is worthless with the worst customer service in the industry.
