    Looking to add some 472's to fleet this year and was trying to decide between the 31hp kawasaki or the 25hp Kubota. The Kaw costs $11,749, the Kubota is $15,399. If I buy a couple I can get the kawasaki's for about $10,400 or I can pick up a 25hr used demo diesel 472 for $12,000. Is the extra initial investment worth it? Will there be a noticeable difference in power between the 2? Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Longevity on diesel is way longer and fuel economy is much better with the diesel in less the gas is efi. Diesels are strong just like tricks
