    I got the kubota ztr Friday and I love it. The 21 horses is plenty power for the 60 inch cut. The hydr deck lift is neat saves energy and the ride it rides pretty comfortable with the suspension seat. Just wait till all the exmark and chopper fans take a look at this one.

    Congrats on your new mower. When are you going to post a picture of it? Is it the diesel? I have a 20 HP diesel on my JD and when I mowed with it, the 20 HP pulled the 60" deck without a problem.

    Congrats on the new mower. I've been drooling over one of those since last fall when I demoed one. I considered one heavily before I bought the most recent Dixie, but I decided to stay consistant with the equipment. There may be one in my future though. I have to admit... they ride and handle better than even a Dixie, and that's not something I admit easily.

    Any links to a Kubota web page with this mower? All I can get to is the heavy equipment stuff and industrial engines.
    Skyphoto,
    I dont think that there will be any reliability problems with a Kubota-anything! Probably wont hear much from Jason!

    Good luck, and post some pics, Jason.

    I'll post some pics asap. The blade speed is 14440 fpm.
    The pto clutch is wet multi disk, which should last a long time.

    I used to have a 14,400 kps MODEM! What a speed demon from a 9600 baud! This seems a little slow for blade tip speed however, are you sure of this Jason? Most of todays rotary mowers are around the 18,000 + fpm zone.

    14,440 is what the manual states, i dont know if its lower because kubota went with a shaft drive to a gear box then to a belt. The cut was good no matter what the tip speed was, so i didnt worry about it. The next thing is if I can get double blades on the mower?
