    hi all...I'm very interested in switching over to the 52" model with the kubota motor. I am just wondering if anyone on here has experience with the grasshopper decks, and just baisically how the grasshopper performs. Any 321d owners out there??

    I have sold many 321d units(30-40). I have never had a customer seriously complain about them. Most everyone praises the great fuel economy. The Kubota engines are very reliable. I must say that Kubota is a little difficult with warranty claims. Luckily we rarely have a problem with the engine. The ghop deck is solid and has one of the best spindles available. If you would like to see a side by side spec comparison of the major brands we have the "zguide" at www. mowpart.com it is pretty cool. Check it out.
    Thanks

    I have a 322d-61 and 223-52 and love them. The ride and cut is great on both. The only thing that these mowers have a problem with is wet grass. In the past I have owned Toro, Scag and Gravely. The new velocity deck on the Scag does better in wet conditions, but I still like the ride and handling on my Grasshoppers way better.

    It still leaves a nice cut when the grass is wet, just have to slow it down?

    im going to be calling my dealer tommorow, although im sure he doesnt stock the 52" model i want. The closest dealer is 48 miles ONE WAY from me, so i wanna call and maybe set up an appointment. The only reason that they (grasshopper) interest me, is because they make the 52" w/ the kubota diesel, which i have heard good things about from Envy.

    My current mower, a 52" mini-z w/ the 19hp Kawi is just too underpowered for me. I have had no problems with my hustler, but I need to step up to a more powerful unit. I looked at the Super mini-z with the 25 Kawi, but i would rather spend a few more $$ and be sure of plenty power

    18 models in use???
